No codes or trouble lights. 209,000 miles with a pressure regulator,fuel pump, and thermostat at about 200,000 miles. The engine was hot and it will drop below 500rpm and die. Start with throtle pressed slightly. Then dies if released. Same when coming to a stop sign.

Re: Low idle and dies when hot
Check and clean your idle air control port. If you pull off the air intake port and feel inside the throttle bore you will feel a hole in one side or the top. Clean that out real well with a brake cleaner or carb cleaner solvent. You may also want to clean out the the throttle bore itself. That should at least help with your idle problem.

Check for correct fuel pressure.
If fuel pressure is low could be bad fuel filter, fuel regulator or pump.
If fuel pressure is correct could be bad MAF sensor, injectors, O2 sensor or vacuum leak on inlet manifold.
if dies immediately when u put it in drive then whats happening is the torque convertor on transmission is lock and need to unplug the electric connector on the transmission cause that's all it controls, if dies in park u most likely its Idle air control valve on your throttle body, if it does it when fully warm ur injectors cause that .... just try to clean idle air control valve first and unplug transmission connector first u should be running better
code p 0128 refers to coolant thermostat--coolant temp below thermostat regulating temperature ===causes --mechanical fault
replace the thermostat
your problem may be low fuel pressure from a faulty pressure regulator
have the fault codes read professionally as the code you have is not related to your problem
