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.

My 1997 Ford F150 Truck,it shudders and dies unless I put it in park at a stop sign? we took it for analysis and they couldn't find the problem,

I have seen this symptom and it is caused by a leaking power brake vacuum booster, when you apply the brakes it creates a huge engine vacuum leak and this causes the engine to run lean and rough and die in some cases. Most likely the shop was looking for an engine issue when it was a brake related problem

Hi, my engine light on my ssangyong kyron 2006, comes on and when it does, when i accelarate it goes slower, please help

If the light you are referring to is the check engine light! This generates a code when on, if the light was on then it will hold the code in the memory, if you have had the codes read then they would have been able to access the code.....what is the code? From your description it sounds like your vehicle is going into limp home mode to stop further damage, retrieve the active or saved code and this will tell you where the problem area is!

Die on idle and die at fully stop in stop sign

I had a similar issue with my 96 civic EX. It was bent valves. Do a leak down test, to confirm it.
