2000 323i stalling when i slow down

The car has only done this a couple times. when i slow down the car stalls. It does start right back up,but it cranks over a little more than usual. I also noticed that in park if you give it a shot gas it stalls.No engine light comes on and as long as it dosen't stall it run's great.

    thanx for your advice. I took out the ICV and gave it a thorough cleaning,put it back in and sprayed half a can of intake cleaner through it running. The car starts much better and has way more pep off the line. It took me about an hour and cost under 10 bucks. I'm sure it would have cost hundreds at the stealership.

Here is what you need to do, a cleaning of the intake throttle blade and the idle speed control air-bypass valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours,
Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the engine at idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Car stalls while slowing or stopping


I've had vehicles that have done this in the past. In the meantime, try to get used to using two feet at the same time (one on the gas and one on the break) to keep the RPMs up while slowing down. It's just a temporary fix, and not recommended that you continue to drive like that.

When you have a chance, get a mechanic to adjust the timing 'UP' a tad so it won't stall out.

If the vehicle is at a timing where it SHOULD be, then raising it to fix this problem will also be temporary until the problem can be diagnosed fully.

After all, however, it is an old cheapy right? These are just quick fixes.

1996 Camry 100 km stalling


You have one of two very common problems.
Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.
