need to set base idle and clean fuel injectors
If the car is starving for fuel or air (low power at idle), the car will stall while turning.
possible bad TPS, IAC, or ECT sensors
A very low idle can cause a 97 Ford Taurus to stall. Another reason for stalling may be transmission bands sticking, which does not allow the transmission to come out of gear on idle.
A vacuum leak or a faulty IAC (Idle Air Control) valve.
Check for leaks in vacuum hoses, check for a cracked or gunked up Idle Air Control valve, and check you throttle positioning sensor.
Check the Park Avenue EGR valve for a clog. A clogged valve can cause a rough idle and stall at a light.
What kind of car & year. Could be the idle air bypass valve. It is located on the throttle body. If you remove the hose and look in the throttle body, you can see a hole in there. Try to clean it with air intake cleaner first. Clean the throttle body with it about 25% of the can, then use the rest of the can into that hole! Do this with the vehicle is running. You may have to play with the throttle to do this. Try to keep the idle as low as possible. When done, stop the vehicle for 10 mins. then rev it up a lot and get all the black out.
An engine usually has a higher idle speed when the ac is running. If the high speed idle does not operate then the ac will cause the engine to stall.
One thing that would cause your 1999 Pontiac Montana to stall at idle is the idle being set too low. You should raise it to see if that fixes the problem.
If it stalls at idle or when slowing down, it could be a fuel filter. Or it could be the ignition control module.
Possibly a stuck or sticking EGR valve.
Could be a number of reasons. Visit www.mercedes190.co.uk
Bad Valves or fuel pump usually from redlining the care
the engine to stall and surge at idle
vehicle stalls - what causes this problem many probs can cause stall a bit more info does it stall a stop signs does it run fine un til you stop and take foot off gas does it idle in park or neutral and stall when put in drive also need make model year and i could help you better
Fast idle motor defective.
It can if it sticks open at idle.
This sounds like an idle problem. Does the service engine light come on before the engine stalls? If it does it should post a code. Knowing what that code is could lead to a more accurate assessment of the problem. Does the engine idle ok before you put the car in gear? Does the engine restart and idle ok after the stall? There are multiple possible causes for the stall. The IAC, idle air controller, could simply be dirty and not delivering enough air for the engine to run. If the MAF, mass air flow sensor, if faulty or dirty that might cause the engine to stall. If the Oxygen sensor is faulty that could cause a stall and generally poor running as well. It may be possible that if the TPS, throttle position sensor, is faulty that could cause the engine to stall at idle speed. If you have found out what the problem is I would be interested to know for future reference.
i dont know mine does only at idle and i think i have a weak coil for 2 and 5 on my 95. or your idle air control vacuum motor
In our case (2003 model), we replaced the fuel pump which was located in the fuel tank. Easy changeout.
Could be a number of reasons...I would begin by replacing your plugs and wires if it does not misfire at idle, then that usually means you have a cracked plug, or faulty wire.
spark plugs and wires
There can be many causes for a Honda Civic to stall. Some of them include a bad fuel pump, a bad alternator, a bad distributor, a clogged air filter or idle air valve. Buy a Honda Civic Service manual for more information. http://www.HondaCivicRepairs.com do it myself Honda civic repair
