Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Car stalls if the RPMs fall under 1000

Wondering if the crankase sensor causes this condition - If I don't keep giving the car a little gas to keep the RPM above 1000, it will register a engine misfire code i.e. the check engine light will blink and the engine will act like it's going to die - hestitate.

Could be a vacume leak, fuel filter, MAF mass air flow sensor. If the engine light is on then go to any parts place and have a free scaning for codes that will give you and us a better idea of whats going on.

Any check engine light or error codes?
I would guess it should be saying it is not getting data or "correct" data from the Block temperature sensor that feeds information to the ECU and the plug timer computer. More than likely corroded contacts. I had similar problem with a 20 yr old car. I disconnected the female connector cleaned with electronic contact spray cleaner and used a toothpick to clean the connector. I also cleaned the male spade connector on the temp sensor with the same spray cleaner and scraped the spade with a sharp blade to bright metal. Put back together, cleared the codes and wala, instant start up just like new. There may be other issues like vacuum line leaks that cause the "give it the gas" hesitation. If you need repair manual try this

1991 Chevy Caprice has a mild miss fire and stall at low rpm: This is my latest update: I checked and cleaned the EGR,PCV,IAC valve, M.A.P sensor and Throttle body(bore/butterfly). with carb cleaner....

Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

98 taurus trouble idling

I would replace the maf sensor first.It is cheaper.It controls the air fuel mixture for your car and sends this signal to your pcm.It is probably not getting enough gas to idol your car.

My car keeps stallin out it will drop below 1000 rpms when idlein at a light or even while drivin the check engine light came on today and they said it can be 4 differnt possiblities either the oxygen...

its not the mass flow , if it was that it would idle high the low then high then low and so on. not the oxygen sensor either that would turn on your engine light and kill your mpg but it would not stall the car unless it is flooding it "do you smell gas?" if the ignition was shorting out it would not drop the rpms and stall it would just die... so the the injectors could be pluged , or it is the fuel pump , so test the pump any auto store will have a fuel psi gauge it should be between 7 and 10 psi.. if the psi is good its the inlectors. good luck
