You did not tell the make, model or year of your car so my guess will ONLY be a guess as to what the solution is: You need a tune up, including timing or your heater on the choke is stuck.

2003 Rav 4 periodically stalls at low idle, intersections


Start with the throttle body. I use brake clean and a toothbrush. Clean the plate and were it sits. Wouldn't hurt to spray down the MAF sensor, if it has one. Once you do it, it will take a few seconds to start. Once started, rev it up and spray inside the throttle. Keep it running. Most times this is a $4 fix.

Chevroleete caviler - car wants to stall or does stall when idling after warmed up - not always. When in drive at idle speeds once in a while cars revs will jump up to 2.5 - then have to restart


Did you clean the idle air control motor, when you cleaned the throttle. Also check for vacuum leaks. The PCM controls the IAC motor. If it to dirty it can stick. Can cause a surge and stall.

When my 1991 geo storm warms up the idle skips around.... it doesnt stall out it just sputters and gos from high to low idle


Sounds like your idle air control, or IAC valve. Take it off and clean it out with some brake cleaner. Carbon deposits and gunk can build up and prevent the IAC valve from operating properly, by causing it to stick. If cleaning it doesn't work, you may have to just replace it. It happened to me on my Sentra, tripping my check engine light, sputtering hard, idled crazy, no power, etc. But once I cleaned it off, it ran so smooth. You'll need to get a replacement gasket, though, or make your own out of gasket paper.

Car idles low, stalls after start


Common issue at the shop (i'm a ford technician), here is what I do to correct it.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk 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.
