Hi try testing your egr valve, that usually happens on Mitsubishi. If is an older model might want to check the CO2 sensor and catalytic converter

Most automatic transmission cars have what's called a "TCC switch". It's a switch by your brake pedal that when activated. It releases pressure in the torque converter, so when you come to a stop, it let's your engine turn more free, (torque converter clutch. Check fuses, that switch, and all connections to the transmission.

SOURCE: rough idle / engine surges until power is applied

Sounds like a possible vaccume hose leak?

SOURCE: slow acceleration, high rpm

This sounds normal to me! The engine will read that rpm when accerlerating lightly. It is the stall of the torque convertor. The oil pressure will always be higher when the rpm's are higher, or when the oil is thicker - cold.

Virbration? That is a different story. Oil won't cause that.

SOURCE: i have a mk3 golf gti 2.0 engine stops when i slow

Add a can of SEAFOAM to gas. Replace fuel filter(will have goop in it). replace fuel filter before next 500 miles. Add SEAFOAM every 3000 miles after that, and that should fix 99% of the problem. good luck.

SOURCE: RPM dial goes up and down when at a stop.Very low

sounds like vehicle may have a vacuum leak somewhere. u can try to spray some throttle body cleaner around top of engine area around black plastic and see if rpm changes or engine stalls.

egr valve could be sticking. (exhaust gas recirculation) typically this would turn on a check engine light but not always. no easy fix/diag here requires scan tool and replacement if bad.

2003 kia sorento keeps slowing down to a stop but doesnt cut off.I have to wait before I press on gas again.

I can't see the T/Belt giveing that problem however if the T/Belt is due it should be done ASAP because if the belt breaks it can cause pistons to hit valves (Very expensive to fix) but could be the catalytic converter or a number of other things. My thought would be to undo the o2 sensor in the exhaust & run car this will allow exhaust to escape without going through the catalyst. If car stops slowing to a stop you know that the catalyst is blocked. Or remove the catalitic converter & look through it it should look like honey comb you can see through. P.S your car posibly won't go without the o2 sensor in.

2003 Olds Bravada. Turn AC on and the truck begin to surge sometimes cutting off but starts right back up. The air is cold but the truck don't stay on when idling. When on the hwy there nis no problem...

Possibly an idle air control motor. The iac is on the throttle body. You my just need to clean it and the throttle body with carb cleaner . Good luck!

Hi there, It may be the manifold air pressure sensor or idle air control sensor or you may just have a vacuum leak. you need someone to use a scantool to check all the perameters. and go from there. Regards Ben
