Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

Clean the throttle body and disconnect the battery positive side for about 30 seconds it resets the computer...if that doesn't work you will need a new throttle body

Why would the motor stall when put in gear motor has been rebuilt and has new plugs


Check your throttle body on the intake for carbon buildup. Open the hose to the intake inlet and check that plate that moves when you depress the gas pedal (while not running). Clean debris with damp washcloth, not soaking wet. If a lot of debris the idle air control valve, and chamber will need cleaned.

It sounds like your clutch bearing has gone they are usually on a pendulum system it screeches before it starts to go. Best get it checked.

96 crown Victoria wont start had the problem couple weeks ago guy said the idle control was off now I guess doing it again I cleaned it but still wont turn over


When you say it wont turn over that implies that you can not hear the starter turning the engine over. If you can hear the starter cranking the engine over but the engine will not start try holding the gas pedal to the floor. Be prepared for the engine to start and let off the gas. If the engine stalls when you let off the gas try starting again but feather the gas pedal after it starts. It it stays running with the pedal depressed than I would agree that there is an issue with the IAC and it may need to be replaced.

Removed battery post now car won't stay started how do I fix it 2003 es 300


All you need to do is hold your foot on the gas pedal to start and hold to keep engine running, hold gas pedal for about 3 minutes then let idle, computer needs to relearn the idle speed thats why it stalls out, hope this helps,

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.

96 GC Orvis-Severe vibration in Idle.


Before you go changing the idle motor, clean the throttle body out with a spray cleaner and make sure you get into the idle speed motor orifice. Spray the cleaner into the throttle body with the engine off, do'nt be afraid to use it all then let it sit awhile. When you try to start the car it might not want to start, just keep your foot all the way down on the gas pedal and as it starts and clears up just release the pedal slowly. If the car smokes out of the exhaust, thats normal. Hope this works.
