Engine stalls cold or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.

SOURCE: idle surges and dies

The first thing to look for is vacuum leaks,possibly in the EGR valve or its related components,also look at the heat activated vacuum switches on the intake manifold,an easy way to check is to spray a small amount of wd-40 around the vacuum connections if theres a leak it will pull it in and can the motor rev up.I just worked on a Toyota that was doing the same thing and it was a loose EGR connection,Hopefully this helps.

SOURCE: engine run rough at idler and surges

I would change the fuel filter and see if that don't help. You might give it a good tune up and adjust the timing. ( If it has a carburetor then adjust the carb too.

Remove the cap from the surge tank. Set the heater control temp to max (A/C in any mode EXCEPT max). Start the engine and idle until lower radiator to pump hose is hot. Allow the engine to cool to ambient, and then check/fill the surge tank and replace cap.

My 1992 chevy g20 van surges and i'm not sure exactly why. I changed the pcv valve, fuel filter, spark plugs, and air filter. What are some possibilities


My first thought would be a vacuum leak in one of the hoses. Rubber hoses get brittle with age and even a small crack in a hose may cause surging. Happened to me in a Lumina.

It sounds very much like the Engine Management Temp Sensor is dormant.

The EMTS acts as the choke and aids starting, they are quite cheap and easy to replace.

The item is located in the thermostat housing.

Engine surges when cold - Once it warms up it runs fine


If carburated, I would suspect a sticking choke, making the fuel mix way too rich.
