Take it to auto zone and hav3 the codes read for free.
Yes, that is one of many possibilities.
If the car is starving for fuel or air (low power at idle), the car will stall while turning.
plugs or vacuum. 65;
Don't fuel up with the engine running. The car is set up to test the intergrity of the fuel sytem for vapor leaks. The main time it will run is at idle. If it is running and you have the gas cap off, the light will come on.
If you drive an older car that has a carburetor, it could be that you need an adjustment to it. Your engine could be misfiring, but the engine light doesn't come on. You should take the car to a local mechanic, because it might need a tuneup.
could be a couple of problems. check idle control sensor or egr valve. good luck IAC idler control valve.
miss alignment of tires
My car does the same thing, except for the low oil... from time to time when I come to a stop I'll push in the clutch and it will randomly stall... I think its b/c my idle is not set high enough, but there could be a different reason...
the idle air control valve most the time
Alternator is no longer working properly.
have you tried to get your wheel realigned
on my 87 Chevy caprice just happen today, my car would idle for a while then die. Turns up my carb was bad. Changed the carb, ran like new again.
Cars often idle fast when you start them up. The automatic choke will make the car idles fast for a while then the idle speed will slow down, once the engine warms up.
could be a combination of a non working idle compensator and a vacuum leak. Poor vacuum will cause your car to stall at a light, the brake booster runs on vacuum, this together with the added load of the AC with the idle not being raised by the idle compensator might cause this to happen. Check your vacuum lines, especially the one going to the brake booster, and check to see if when you turn on your AC the engine idle raises.
When driving the IAC does not do anything because the car is not at an idle
Ask this question again specifying what the car is.
To much oil in an engine can cause it to flood which will then lead to blowing seals. But it should not effect how the car idles.
you need to clear the code
A vacuum leak (Brake booster).
It is normal if other lights come on at the same time. All of the reminder/warning lights should come on when ignition is in idle (key's in ignition, but the car is not running)
Yes, and the check engine light should illuminate.
The car was staying idle.
Hey Jonathan==It varries between cars. If your car is later than about 1986 it is computer controled and you cannot change it. Sometimes if the idle speed solonoid is bad or dirty, the idle will be wrong. Goodluck, Joe A vacuum leak will also cause idle quality issues.
