This may be the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS). It generates the speed signal that drives the speedometer and gives the signal to the electronic transmission control. It is a sensor that has a plastic gear on the end that is turned by the transmission. Look at the speedometer when the transmission shifts to neutral on its own, if you are moving, and you will see it at 0 MPH if its the VSS. It may or may not show up as an OBD-II code P500,(VSS fault) or P502 (VSS intermittent). My 1998 used to do the same thing when I left the driveway, but only in the morning. It would electricallly shift to neutral, I would put shifter to N and back to D and it would be OK. It continued occasionally for about two years with no codes or Check Engine light until it suddenly got worse and it would not correct itself after ******** to N and back to D. The code then showed up as P500 or P502. The VSS is about $50 at NAPA or about $25 at Advance or AutoZone. It is a pretty easy but hard to see replacment. (get a Craftsman round inspection mirror) It is located in the top of transmission, passenger side, sort of under cylinder #1. It is held in by one small bolt. I think I used a 10mm 1/4" drive socket to get it. A Haynes book will help, but beware, they don't tell you that the VSS is enclosed by a square tube heat shield and the photos stink. You will see the wire going into the square shield tube. Pull the shield up to get to the VSS and unplug the wire. IMPORTANT: Haynes says to check the VSS output for a pulsed AC voltage output. My VSS produced a pulse voltage when rotated, but it was still bad. IMPORTANT: take old VSS with you to match new one. There are more than one part called out for this year model and they look almost the same. I hope this helps..

Sounds like the EGR valve is bad and is stuck in the open position.Just replace that and you should also check the catalytic converter.

SOURCE: engine light is on ,code P0171, hesitates when start driving

If you have had a bad enough problem with the fuel filter, and it is not the fuel pump I would have to say it is the injectors. If your car is fuel injected there could be dirt in the injectors in which case they will need to be replaced. The problem is you can flush the whole fuel system except for the fuel injectors themselves. Though I am not sure how to check them myself, a mechanic could tell you if this is the problem in minutes. I cant say for sure if this is your problem but I have a 79 corrolla and it is doing the same thing and since I have replaced almost the whole fuel line except for the injectors themselves this is what I am leaning towards. Good luck!

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

Might be a leak on your brake booster (this will most probable give you a hard brake pedal or a "sucking sound " when applying brakes) also check the vacumm pipe from the engine to the brake booster. It might have a leak, so when you press the brakes it influences the air mixture.

1993 chrysler acclaim 3.0/6 cyl misses or hits while engine cycles this while in idle or drive ex; sitting at stop light.

if it sits there and seems to rev up and down, it is probably your throttle position sensor. Mine acted up very bad, expecially when leaving the highway back into city driving when at a stop sign.

When stopped at light/stop sign, rattling comes

Inspect the motor mounts for cracks or breaks in the mount. Ask a friend to stand at the right front fender with the hood open while you start the car. Make sure the emergency brake is on and you block one of the rear tires in front of it and in back of it with a brick or similar solid material. Put the car in drive (1st gear for manual transmission) and with your foot on the brake pedal rev the motor for a few seconds at about 1500-1800 rpm as your friend watches for excessive left and right movement from the engine. Then do the same in reverse and have him stand on the left side and do the same. If one mount is bad it is recommended that all the engine mounts be replaced. There are usually 2 or 3 for the engine and one for the transmission.

In my opinion it could be:
1. Battery discharged
2. Battery connections loose or corroded
3.Air filter element dirty or clogged
4.Fuel injection system dirty or clogged

I would go for this last and check the air intake meter, clean the injectors, etc.
