Question about 2003 Pontiac Sunfire
I was driving my sunfire home the other day and stopped off at the store. When I was done and pulled out of my parking space --it stalled. It started right back up but as soon as I took my foot off the brake--it would stall again. It took me 30 minutes to get out of the lot. And continued stalling all the way home. Evrytime I came to a light /stop sign I threw it in nutral so I wouldn't come to a complete stop. Any ideas what could be wrong?
Is your chek engine light on? If it is take it to any auto store for free scaning,Might be problem with idle control valve or trottle possition sensor,or vacium leak.

Sounds like a mass air flow problem. It's located somewhere between the air filter and intake, but usually right after the air filter box.
Check to see that the big rubber hose there isn't cracked or ripped, check to see if the mass air flow wires aren't frayed or broken or disconnected.
Start with that, and ur check engine light must be on as well.
