the most common thing here with American cars is a tps (throttle positioning sensor) pretty cheap and easy to get to. usually located under the breather/air cleaner. or a vacuum line is disconnected. usually with a vacuum line the car wouldn't start at all without having to pump the gas pedal and continue to do so to keep it running
water in the fuel can cause an idling motor to sputter and/or die.
Idling too low or a bad lock-up torque converter solenoid.
After warm up, my car would die at idle and would decelerate when I pushed the gas pedal hard. I replaced the camshaft sensor and it fixed the problem.
throttle body is not letting enough air in. Idle speed servo, stuck or failed.
because itt needs to be work on
I sat in my car in the driveway with the car idling, waiting for the kids to come out.
== == You may have a short in the wiring or something is wrong with the computer system in the car.
Yes, it could.
There are various reasons why your car would almost stall when idling. In most cases, this might be an indication of the engine lacking power or capacity due to the failure of the pistons. You should contact a mechanic to diagnose the problem.
You do not provide enough information for a good answer. It depends if it is Fuel Injected or not and other information. Possibly vacuum leak or idle speed too low.
The radiator cooling fan is most likely not working.
The same on a car equipped with manual transmission. On an automatic equipped car it will use less idling.
As long as your car engine is running, it should be OK. An exhausted battery will only become a problem when you try to start the car.
spark plug gap Can also be a vacuum leak.
It depends on how long you are idling, or how fast you are going. If you know you are going to be idling for a long time, it's best just to put your car in park.
Idling is what your car is doing when it is just sitting somewhere running. As soon as you press on the gas it is no longer idling. Your idle speed is the number of RPMs your engine runs at when you are idling.
If a car shakes and loses power when idling it can be the spark plug. If a spark plug is fouling, it can cause power losses.
a longer cam shaft will make a car idle rough
exhaust leak or a possible fuel line leak
by the idling air control valve
A car that is stopped with the engine running.
Your Dodge Durango may stall when idling at a stop light for a couple of reason. One reason may be that a part needs to be replaced on the car.
Could be low on coolant, a stuck open thermostat or a partially blocked heater core.
If the car dies while idling, the timing might be off. Other causes can include a clogged fuel filter or a bad spark plug.
