Answer -Clean throttle body/Carb cleaner There is an idle sensor within the Throttle Body which becomes dirty from carbon. Two things: Add a can of that Carb cleaner to a tank of gas, I know it's not supposed to have a carb but it works and second, try spraying a cleaner, they have a spray cleaner in auto store for this purpose, directly down the throttle body, under the bonnet and wipe as well as you can with a rag, working it in as far as you can. Once the sensor is clean, the stalling will stop. ya my car was dying and i replaced the idle air control valve, really easy to replace just was $140, or go to wrecking yard. you could also try your TPS. if it dies at any other time other than idling it wont be the idle air control valve. there is a few ways to test them. i never tried it but i heard start your car and then unplug the data/electricity line and if your car keeps running then its a bad unit, if it dies then its good. dont start replacing sh*t unless you know for sure you dont have a vacuum leak!!
