SOURCE: Stalls out when braking quickly, worse with going down hill

Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.

SOURCE: car dies when slowing down or stopping

Disconnect the air hose going to the Idle Air contorl Valve and plug the line with a small screw.
if the problem of the idle goes away and the car runs smooth and doesn't stall at stops, it's the air control valve housing sensor, it's basicall the whole unit thats no good. If it still stalls, clean the throttle body housing and all parts in where the air gets sucked in, put a rag underneath to keep the dirt from dripping down, start the car with somebody inside the car reving up the engine to 2000rpm's to 2500rpm's, then spray in to the throttle with burst of throttle cleaner and you will see the gunk keep coming out, you may have to change your spark plugs after this is done also.

Good Luck BigWillie

SOURCE: Stalls at low speed when in cruise control

You sould have recieved a "recall" notice in the mail about the cruise control for fire and failure issues. they are adding a fusable link where the cruise control harness connects to the brake master cylinder. if you have not had the recall performed yet you should SERIOUSLY consider getting it done, mainly so it doesnt catch fire, but "could" be the result of the failure you've been experiancing! btw, almost ALL Ford vehicles have been affected with the cruise control recall. hope this helps!

My 2002 Buick park Ave. stalled sometime ago,, i have had the idle control, idle air, and maf, all replaced,, the car runs, now and then it feels like it stumbles,, it has stalled and restarted and ra


when your engine speeds up or slows down the voltage will increase and decrease,, probably has nothing to do with your problem.. Its a 2002 car so first check all the hoses and pipes on the engine that provide vacuum to the different parts of your engine.. check the hose that goes to the brake booster. plug the hose and try running the engine.. If you DRIVE THE CAR YOU WILL HAVE MUCH REDUCED BRAKING EFFIGNCY.. BE CARFULL. to see if you have an internal vac. leak in the booster. Read out the codes to see if there are any set. Your problen sounds like a vac leak to me.. Post here and let us know what you find..

My 2007 Chevy Silverado loses power when I come to a complete stop no engine lights appear but if I turn off the truck the problem goes away for awhile .


Loss of power, but no mention of rough or inability to idle (including stalling). If those additional symptoms are part of the problem, check for a vacuum leak to the intake. Listen for hissing or sucking noises near air hoses. Look for loose, cracked, or broken air hose connections. Check PCV valve...Cheap to replace, could be sticking, then loosen after truck sitting with engine off. A vacuum leak will not give any light indications, and vehicle will seem to run normal when applying gas, but will want to stall or run rough (or want to stall) when at idle or sometimes when taking foot off gas when slowing down.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON ECU COD INTAKE VACUM LEAK WHAT IS MOST COM PROBLEM WITH THE 2.5 AND VACUM LEAK


Hello...

I am not sure about your exact car. Im sorry, but I dont know EVERYTHING. However most vac leaks are caused by a hose. If not the hose then by a loose intake manifold, or bad manifold gasket. Sometimes the manifold itself can crack.

The EASIEST way I have found to run down a vac leak is to buy a can of SPRAY carb cleaner, most autoparts stores have this stuff. With the engine running spray the carb cleaner near suspected leak sites. The ends of hoses, down along the intake gaskets, pretty much anywhere air can go. When you find the leak your engine will SPUTTER. Sometimes it will even die. Carb cleaner doesnt burn that great apparantly and when it gets SUCKED IN to the fuel air mix it throws it off.

Once you find the site of your leak the fixes are pretty easy. From what I have read recently alot of people seem to be getting away with just tightening bolts this winter. I dont know if the sudden change in temp or just everyones cars seem to be about the same age.

Anyhow thats how I find intake leaks.

I hope this helps

Cranks over fine acts like it is not getting fuel, changed fuel filter sometimes will start but misses badly. Worked fine before just all of a sudden did this


check fuel press if not 30 to 35 psi your fuel pump has fail, if fuel press ok, then remove vac. hose from fuel press regulator and have some one open the ignition swith, if fuel comes out of regulator replace it, this also fould your plugs badly because lost of fuel are going into the eng via a vac. hose

I just bought a 2001 explorer sport 2dr, 131,000km and all of a sudden when i was slowing down at a light, it got alittle jerky, then stalled out completly. Also i have only driven about 50km and i've gone...


i dont know why it stalled out but i do know if in park or neutural it has a limitor on it that will not let the rpms go to high and it feels like its missing but this is normal to keep the engine from reaving to high.

Check the EGR for leaks.Here is th emost common cause of idle surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue 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
