I just got done with this same problem. Check a small looped vacuum hose just behind the mass air flow sensor which is attached to the air filter housing. the hose will be toward the plenom on the right side next to a blue connector. They have a tendency of getting soft.

Check for vacuum leaks. At low idle all cars are likely to stall with a vacuum leak. It's reving because the CPU is trying to keep the car running by dumping more fuel in it

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Jeep Grand Cherokee shuts off at idle while stopped. RPM fluctuates then engine eventually dies.


your idle air control valve is going out located behind the throttle body.

1988 cutlass ciera boggs down when i accelerate


Hello! You have symptoms that point to incorrect fuel pressure.
First have the fuel pressure tested as follows; #1...engine running at idle: 13- 20 psi. #2...key on engine off: 23-30 psi. If pressure is incorrect change the fuel pump.

Does the engine "surge" at idle? If so, check the "fuel injection pressure regulator idle air control valve". Apply a vacuum to it; If fuel flows it is not the problem.

I have a Chevrolet silverado 2000 V6, 4.3L The engine is start right away if i turn the key to start. At park (P) position or drive (D) position the engine try to stop if I press the paddle to accelerate,...


Does the engine accerlerate in neutral? Or does it die at higher speed in neutral??? If so you may have a plugged up exhaust system. Try disconnecting or loosneing up the flange before the catalic converter and then see if it runs normal.

2000 Alero idles low and dies when stopped.


How does it idle when you first start or idle when hot.
On the top of the air intake tube there is a small screw which should when screwed in speed up the idle and if it dosent work or it idles fine when cold or warm at idle then its your GEARs are binding up and there's not to much you can do about that ........sorry

My car dies when i put it in gear or when i come to a stop and a rough idle i changed the tps


Idle air control valve would be my next bet , the TPS usually just makes it rough on acceleration. Is it rough on acceleration(loss of power) ?

2000 jeep grand V8 low idle then dies


A faulty gas cap can cause the sensor to come on.
Clean out the throttle body with a cleaner and see if the idle improves.
