Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf

The car seems to stall when it's idling, that is after the engine gets warmed up.. the rpm goes to under 400 and goes up to 1000. sometimes the engine stops completely when I stop at a stop light.

Try to clean the throttle body with some carb cleaner, if that does not work, then you are looking at either the idle control valve, or worse the whole throttle body,

Rough idle after engine is warm


Dirty air filter, dirty throttle body...try 2 bottles of gas line fuel injector cleaner...has your car been parked for awhile? Heet gas additive will work on any low gas tank sludge that you may have. Hope this helps.

My Nissan sentra fn15 with a ga15 engine, the rev counter does not change with rpm increase, drive car for 10 mins it slowly goes to 5-600 rpm, it also stalls sometimes, are they related


WHAT YEAR? CAR.
the engine tachometer reads what.
that whole post is a contradiction.
ahh, you mean the engine does not accelerate, or the engine bogs.
600 RPM is why below, 800 normal (most cars)
the engine stalls, well sure it will as low idle speed will surely do.
so the real post is my engine stalls.
and if i try WOT ,it will go above 600 rpm in or out of gear?
wot means wide open throttle.
can the engine race to 3000RPM in PARK (or neutral)
if engine power is ok, full WOT power up a hill and is only and idle problem say some. and we work bad idle.

the top reason for stalls (besides #1 never ever doing the 60k mile service,repeats at every 60k)_
is a stuck open EGR (part of same service to do that but Ill add that)
or stuck closed ISC (electric IAC)

Idle problem integra


check the MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure). The ECM (car computer) uses that to keep idle at minimum 750 RPM. It's normal for it to run high when cold. These small 4 banger motors typically run hot, and they won't run right IF they're NOT running hot, ergo the idle is usually high when it is cold so as to cause it to warm up quicker. If the RPM's drop below 750, suspect the MAP sensor, &/or ECM.

Engine stalls on Isuzu I-370 truck after warm up


The Cam sensor usually senses the position of the timing belt or timing chain gear and tells the computer when #1 cylinder is at top dead center. In other words, when #1 cylinder comes up. Crank sensor tells the computer when to fire the spark plugs in the rest of the cylinders. In other words, as the crank shaft goes around it tells the computer when each piston comes up so it can fire it's spark plug


so replace the crankshaft sensor

The car hesitates when idling or stopped at light/ stop sign, and the rpm drops to zero then goes back up.


The battery was a red herring - it would not have anything to do with the problem.
Faulty spark plugs could cause a miss but probably not make the engine stall.
What you described is a classic example of a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body. The computer controls idle speed by regulating how much air enters the intake. It opens the control valve to raise idle speed when necessary.
I would check the control valve and the throttle body.

Vehicle unused with dead battery for 6 months will start but not maintain idle


The automatic idle speed control system has lost its adaptive idle learning due to the dead battery. To help to correct this in the short term run the engine at 2000 RPM until warm, then back down to 1500 RPM for 3 minutes, then 1000 RPM for 3 minutes, then let it idle for 5 minutes, this should get the system to a point in the idle learn that it doesn't stall out, then drive it for 20 miles under varied conditions of highway and stop and go and low speed operation, that should get all to work again. If you still have problems you will need to have the system scanned to see what is going on that is causing a stall. Also add fresh fuel, gas goes bad in about 3 months. Use the recommended grade of fuel.

could be numerous reasons. this is your best bet take it in to a mechanic and have your engine codes scanned. it is a minimal charge, some even do it for nothing it only takes 10 minutes.this will point you in the right direction.
