Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero
01 Alero w/.24l engine is starting to stall out/kill when stopping. it will start right back up, but it seems to go to a very low idle and or die when letting off the accelerator to slow down for a stop sign or cornering.
You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
