Sounds like you need a tune up. Starter starts the car alternater keeps the battery charged up to keep the car running. Try a new fuel filter maybe some fuel treatment also

Where is my pcv valve on my 2000 ford escort


Check for vacuum leaks. PCV has hose from top of valve cover and runs down underneath by exhaust to the valve. Just follow the hose. Possible bad idle air controller (IAC). You can also unplug the mass air flow sensor and see if it runs any better. (It will set a code but you can clear it)

My 2007 Chevy Silverado loses power when I come to a complete stop no engine lights appear but if I turn off the truck the problem goes away for awhile .


Loss of power, but no mention of rough or inability to idle (including stalling). If those additional symptoms are part of the problem, check for a vacuum leak to the intake. Listen for hissing or sucking noises near air hoses. Look for loose, cracked, or broken air hose connections. Check PCV valve...Cheap to replace, could be sticking, then loosen after truck sitting with engine off. A vacuum leak will not give any light indications, and vehicle will seem to run normal when applying gas, but will want to stall or run rough (or want to stall) when at idle or sometimes when taking foot off gas when slowing down.

Whenever I start my expedition it sounds good but three seconds later it will stall out how do I fix it?


First check for a Vacuum leak. If none found, I would either have it scanned for codes, or replace the Idle bypass valve.

1999 mazda 626 4cyl runs rough at idle , engine dies at idle. check engine light on fault code 171 looked for vacum leak none found. replaced MAF sessor no help. any ideas


You may have to dig deeper for a vacuum leak. It's possibly the intake manifold gasket. Try spraying some starting fluid around the intake manifold. Also try disconnecting the brake booster and plugging that hose, the diaphram in the booster could be ruptured, causing a vacuum leak. Check the PCV valve and hose too.

Here are the common cause of surges, cold stalls, 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.

I have a 93 Nissan 300ZX 5-spd that will periodically stall out when braking to a stop.


the idle on the 300zx is supposed to be around 750-900 with the na being on the high end and turbo on the low end. sometimes when you clutch the revs drop and the engine does not recover enough. raising the idle to around 850 will help dramatically. also it would be a good idea to check for vacuum leaks as a severe enough one could also cause it to stall. another thing to look at would be if you clutch is fully disengaging. once slowing to a stop if the clutch is still catchin a little the car will stall. if you have a turbo car the clutch is vacuum assisted and the booster has been known to go out from time to time. i would investigate the vacuum and clutch booster

pictures of the correct vacuum routing can be found here, good luck bud let me know what you find

If you notice the car running rich(black smoke out of the exhaust) you might look at the MAP sensor. It is a common problem with these cars,and about 50 bucks at your local parts store. You will find it on the passenger side inner fender just in front of the strut tower, it is a small black box with one vaccum line and one elec. plug. try pulling off the vac. line and plugging it with a bolt the car should idle like that, if it does, you have found your problem. Hope this helps

Stalling


Look for a possible vacuum leak Use can of carburettor cleaner carefuly sprayed around inlet manifold and around injector seals.Spray with engine running and engine will instantly react to any leak no matter how small.Dont allow fan to blow onto paint as carb cleaner will damage it.
