The O2 sensor can cause rough idle, usually from to much fuel. Stalling could be from the spark plugs have to much carbon on them from to much fuel.

Stalls intermittently, wrench icon lights up under tach.


Problem with the electronic throttle control .
It should be noted that the ETC system includes a wrench light on the instrument cluster that illuminates when a fault is detected. Faults are also accompanied by DTCS and the "Check Engine Soon" light. Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a reputable ASE certified repair shop .
Overview The Generation II (Gen II) Torque Based Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) is a hardware and software strategy that delivers a transmission output shaft torque (via throttle angle) based on driver demand (pedal position). It utilizes an electronic throttle body, the PCM and a accelerator pedal assembly to control throttle opening and engine torque. The ETC system basically replaces the standard cable operated accelerator pedal, idle air control (IAC) motor, 3-wire throttle position sensor (TPS) and mechanical throttle body .

Upon starting 99 ram 1500 it starts to idle down and almost die but once i give it gas its fine for a while what to do?


Have someone check the idle air control valve. When you are idling the intake air takes a different path into the motor than it does when you depress the accelerator. A hunting / erratic idle is a good indicator of a faulty IAC. Sometimes you can clean them but best to replace.

1990 4Runner, 3.0 L engine, won't hold idle, wants to stall, no power. Replaced Mass air flow valve sensor, replaced fuel pump, distributor cap and rotor, plugs. It has good fuel flow but only runs well...


Have you looked at your idle air control valve What is it? This is an electrically driven valve that allows additional control over the throttle at idle Where is it located? The IAC is located on or adjacent to the throttle body and consists of a small device held on by two bolts with an electrical connector.
How does it work? When the throttle is closed the throttle plate closes off any air from the intake manifold. In order to stop the engine from stalling due to lack of air the IAC opens a small valve allowing air to pass from the air ducting to the intake manifold. Often the IAC components consist of an air inlet port in the inside wall of the throttle body, immediately in front of the throttle plate, with a similar exit port behind the throttle plate. Connecting the two ports is a motor driven valve. When the valve is opened air effectively by-passes the closed throttle plate to maintain the engine at idle. The IAC also augments the throttle when additional power demands are put on the engine such as steering.


Symptoms of faulty IAC

  • Poor starting: If the IAC fails to open or the inlet/exit ports are clogged shut with carbon the engine may start and then promptly stall. The engine can be kept running by pressing the accelerator. However any additional demand on the engine such as power steering or putting the car into drive (automatic) will cause the engine to stumble badly and often stall.
  • Engine cut out: Even with the engine warmed when the vehicle is stationary such as at a red light the putting of the transmission into of 'drive' to pull away before the accelerator is pressed can cause the engine to stall. (Note this differs from the TPS fault which causes engine stall due to the accelerator being pressed too quickly)

How to check? Physically remove the IAC but keep the electrical connection to it. Temporarily block off the now open ports on the throttle, turn the engine on and examine the IAC valve action in response to additional loads (power steering inputs etc). The valve should open and close according to demand.

How to fix? If the motor of the IAC has failed then replace the IAC. If the valve is gummed closed by baked oil and carbon then clean it thoroughly with carburetor choke cleaner spray and a cloth. Similarly if the entry and exit ports on the throttle body to the IAC look blocked again clean them out thoroughly.
