Check and make sure that there is no vacum leaks, such as any broken hoses especially the duct hose from the throttle to the mass air flow sensor , other tha that you have a defective idle control valve

If you have the foot on the brake when stopping and it stalls , try slowing down and stopping on the hand brake to see if the engine stalls . If it doesn't stall on the hand brake then I would suspect a leak in the brake booster that is affecting the engine by letting air into the manifold through the activated booster. If there is no difference have the fault codes read as there may be a missing/ faulty vacuum line connected to a actuator in the gear box.

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox. During the day after it's been sitting, when you first crank it the a/c blows hot. But once you get rolling at a good speed it cools down. BUT, when you stop at a red...


This sounds like your cooling fan is not running. If you were to stop too long with with the engine idling it would overheat the engine. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is a very serious issue. I can have a number of causes, like bad cooling motor, bad wiring or conectors, bad relay, open fuse, etc. Please have it diagnosed and repared before it overheats the engine and possibly damages the engine. If you are stopped in trafic you can place the transmission in neutral and shut off the engine. When trafic restarts you can restart the engine and place the transmission in drive again and continue. I hope this helps.

3.0L 2000 DODGE CARAVAN SHUTS DOWN WHEN STOPPING AT A LIGHT OR STOP SIGN. NO LIGHTS ON DASH - NO ENGINE LIGHT. TURN KEY OFF AND RESTARTS OK. MUST KEEP FOOT ON GAS PEDAL AND BRAKE PEDAL TO KEEP ENGINE...


it sounds like it is starving for fuel, the fuel filter may be clogging up. when a fuel filter gets dirty and cuts some of the flow of fuel, it will stall out at stops. because the engine does not have the proper amount of fuel to keep it running. have a good day !

Toyota carina injection 1993 2000cc auto cuts out as soon as I


Does the vehicle restart and die when you put it in gear. If answer is yes then you need a torque converter clutch solenoid (TCC) or a brake light switch. The brake light switch cancels the TCC at a slow down or stop.. If it doesn't cancel it you will stall out. If your vehicle restarts and dies once you put it in gear then its the TCC. If none of these symptons fit your vehicle get back to me .

1999 Dodge Intrepid engine jerks, cuts off when slows down/stops


Amattison:

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.

Vitara 1.6 cuts out


Are you quite sure it is not overheating? Your mention of heavy traffic, ie. stop and go, would tell me that your radiator fans are not working. I had a car with bum electric radiator fans. It worked fine if it was moving a lot. But in slow traffic, it would get warm enough to have a vapor lock or something without setting the engine-hot light.
