    I have the same problem - at idle it's like someone just turned the key off. Hard to start afterwards; pedal to the medal and crank away...eventually starts and runs good. just watch out next stop sign and your idling. Ready for this? replaced EGR, Selnoid, VSV, charcoal canister, fuel filter, catalytic converter, cleaned all vacuum lines checked for leaks, seafoam in Throttle body (best results but it came back) and cleaned out the idle air control valve - worked for 3 days and is stalling at idle again. Thinking about new IAC. Anybody have thoughts on what to do next?

    I like the recommended coolant check I wouldn't have thought of that. I have a 95 RAV4 Auto with 163K on the clock with exactly the same symptoms. Sometimes (not all the times) at idle it's like someone just turned the key off. Hard to start afterwards; pump the pedal and crank away...eventually starts and runs normally. Just had serviced but not resolved the problem. The RAV also loses power some times when cruising. Revs are constant but their is a power loss (just a drop, not a cut out) for a couple of seconds the power is restored.

    I have the same problem, car stalls at a low idle, stop sign, light and sometimes when making turns...

    New battery, starter,pcv, waterpump, timing belt, only has 136,000 miles.. nobody seems to know what is making it stall, as of right now it is in the shop......

I suggest probably hydrocarbons blocking the throttle system. Pour a bottle of fuel system cleaner into the tank and run it exclusively on Shell V-Power petrol. DD tried this and the car ran a lot better.

Check your coolant level,... i know that sounds stupid but part of the idle circuit relys on coolant temp, if the level is low it gets a false read.

Try this procedure for stalls like this.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of spray 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 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.

Astro van problem


If the engine RPM drops and does not recover, its usually a faulty idle air control valve. Can you keep your foot on the gas and keep it running when you come to a stop ? Is the check engine light on ?

2004 Envoy xl stalls when making turns


this is caused by slow engine idle speed, do the procedure below.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) 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 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.
