I had the same problem with my 01 eclipse... it turned out to be my ignition coil... you should have yours checked out... only problem is that it costs about 345$ or more... one thing to remember is that ignition coils either work or they don't... if the person who looks at your vehicle says that your igniton coil is going out ... they are lying and are just trying to get your money... good luck!

Sounds like the EGR valve is bad and is stuck in the open position.Just replace that and you should also check the catalytic converter.

SOURCE: RPM drops to zero at idling after engine accelerates when warm

This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.

My car is dropping rpms. It may idle OK but when


this could be caused by many things, the most common could be a weak fuelpump or a cylinder misfire, have the computer scaned and see if there are any codes stored, autozone scans for free.

My car is jerking and will stall when the air is on


Look at your RPM gauge, before and after, putting on the A/C. Does the RPM drop with the A/C on? May need to adust the idling or check the throttle sensor

Will not Start


Strap VOM across battery and measure VDC. Keep Eye on VDC as someone attempts to start car. If Volts drop to near 0, battery is toastado.

Otherwise, check ignition relay and starter solenoid. Check any large fuses in the underhood fuse compartment.
