The iac. or idle air control motor should be the problem .if the battery is old and weak the iac. will be searching for the right posistion all the time this also will make it stall.

My 92 ford explorer wont stay running when i come to a stop


If it feels like a stick shift car when you come to a stop and don't push in on the clutch and the engine lugs down and dies, it's most likely caused by the torque converter not unlocking. There is a solenoid that causes the converter to unlock and lock. That is the most likely cause. It may, also, be a broken wire or bad connection.

2003 chrysler pt cruiser air conditioner is putting out only hot air


This is only a DIY check list of probable faults.
1. Electrical failure thro' the Fuses and Relays that energise the Compressor clutch.
2. Lack of Freon in the System,
3.Split Hi or Lo pressure hoses, due to chafing on the engine or body work, causing pressure loss.
4. Failed Expansion valve.
5. Leaking coupling joint seals in system.
6. Broken Drive belt for the Compressor.
7. Failed Compressor Clutch Electric windings,
8. Failed Hi pressure hose/pipe In line switch, that also enegises the compressor clutch.
9. Defective Thermostat in the Evaporator core.
10.Holed Condenser permitting pressure loss.
Best of luck on the fault finding trail.
I suggest a trip to Walmart, to acquire the low cost Charge canisters to find the pressure loss fault,if it is not in the other fault suggestions.

Rpms will not come down when clutch is engaged


The most likely cause of this is the idle control valve. This can be cleaned with injector fluid or similar (for little cost), but may have to be replaced. Either way it is not too expensive, and can be fixed in less than 1 hour.

My 2003 PT cruiser dies at a stop sign and then it won't start


You may need a new battery (alternator will keep it running once jumped but if you stop, the idle may not keep the car powered long enough). If you've never replaced the battery, its about time - they have a life of about 5 years.
