Check the battery cables. I had the same issues with my 96 tacoma, The battery cable connection at the battery can be cranked down but still be loose. Hard to explain, doesn't make sense, but just check it out.
This could be a sign of tune-up needed. Also you can go to parts supply shops such as: PepBoys, Napa Auto Parts or check your local parts supply company in your area. They generally have Chilton or Haynes manuals at those companies.
You need to replace the [whoops drawing a blank].I can't remeber the name but you will finc a coil under the rotor butten that is under the distributer cap.Remove the rotor butten and then the cover directly below that.Ther is a smaller coil in there that causes the problem you are discribing[there is a relucter wheel that need to come out the the other thing,sucks to get old]
I know it sounds crazy but check to see if the floor mat is blocking gas pedal. I have seen this alot in my 30 years as a master tech.the way you describe it sounds like all the other cust of mine that had the same issue. hope that is all it is. good luck and let me know.
I am having a similar problem on a 2003 Volkswagon Passat 1.8L 4 cylinder manual engine. My batter (after 10 years of service) died about a month ago. When the engine is cold and I start it up the engine (if I do not carefully add gas to rev the engine) will idle at around 200 to 400 RPM and then stall. The problem does not occur after the engine has been going for more than about 90 seconds. No check engine light is on. Ideas anyone?
