Stalling troubleshooting


run fault codes to check for electronic problems (TCM). If this problem only happens when the foot brakes are applied check for brake booster vacuum problem. Remove vacuum line and blank off and apply the brakes to see if the engine stalls at idle.

When coming to a stop the motor shuts down. to take off again you have to put it in neutral to restart. it then takes 2 or more tries to keep it going once you shift to drive.

Engine stalls when applying brakes. To prevent


You may have a dirty idle speed control valve, do the procedure below to correct this.

Get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, 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.

What could be wrong if the engine will not idol?it will run right first thing in the morning but 3minutes later if u don't keep your foot on the gas&brake at a light the engine will shut off. is their...


it just needs the tick over turned up a bit on first start up its still running on choke,,, fast tick over,,,
when the choke comes off it starts to stall on you,,, yes?
the tick over should be set at 750 - 850 rpm (in gear when hot) when makeing any ajustments to the tick over keep the hand brake and foot brake hard on,,,

Have a 1989 cutlass ciera that rolls back a little when put in park. What could that be? 2nd issue is it stalls when you come to a stop.


the rool back is down to slack in the drive line,
ie prop and back lash in the diff, there will also be some back lash in the gear box as well, this is completly normal so dont worry about it,, however you should all ways keep the foot drake on till you have put the habd brake on then and only them slip it into park as if you keep letting it rool back and stoping in park you could snap of the park claw inside the auto gear box, that a pricy repair, so please hold the brakes on before you go into park,,,
as for the stalling part,,, how fast is the tick over when warm and in gear (in drive with foot brake on)
if its less that 850 rpm thats the problem,,, auto's realy dont like a slow tick over, there is a lot of drag on an auto box, at tick over it should hold your car from rolling back on a slight hill or even drive up it with out you putting any power on to make it pull away, they also creep forwards in gear by them selfs, thats normal too,,safe,happy driving!!!!!!!

Car keeps stalling when brakes applied, then starts but turns off


I dont know why, but one time my truck was low on trans fluid and after I topped it off, it didnt stall anymore when put into gear. as fro the odometer i dont know, it may have to go out completely before any diagnosis can be done.
