If the fuel filter does not work, it may be the AIR CONTROL VALVE BOARD which is part of the electronic fuel ignition. I am going through this right now, and found that the "new" ones cost $600 and the used ones are $200, but when you get a used one, you take your chances, so ask for a money back guarantee from the mechanic, or their pledge to put in another one at no additional charge if the first one you get is a bad one the first time, because they are all 20 years old now...

Truck starts and runs in park but when you put it in gear it stalls and when in park it has a dead spot when you give it gas


Sounds like your throttle position sensor is gone. The throttle position sensor is a sensor that tell the computer how much gas to give the engine. I had a very similar issue with a car i had where it would be ok when it was cold or idling but when i took off from a red light after it warmed up it would just stall.

Good day, I drive a 2002 MK4 1.6 SR. The revs on the car are not stable especially when clutch is pressed in then the revs jump between 500 & 1000 for a couple of secs then eventually stabilise on...


Try cleaning the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve. Use CRC brand spray throttle valve cleaner, about half the car will do it. Spray it into the engine intake while it running hold the idle up or it will stall out. After you have done this the idle problems should improve.

2006 Envoy stalling when idels and won't stay running


Clean your Throttle body and pay attention to the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve passageway to try to clean the IAC. A dirty or faulty IAC will cause your engine to stall at idle, the job of the IAC is to open the passage way through the throttle body to regulate the amount of air to enter the engine to keep it from stalling when the Envoy is at idle.

Start with the simple and clean the throttle body and inspect any loose or damaged wire leads to the throttle body. Replace or repair any signs of damage.

Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.

TH Magna stalling in idle after battery replacement


Hi - what was the solution??

Ive just had exactly this problem. Got new battery today then no idle. The car starts fine and runs for abourt 1 second then instantly dies. Its fine if you keep your foot on the throttle. Unfortunately if you are going downhill as soon as you place your foot on the brake the engine dies and the steering fails - then the brakes!!!

I seem to remember having idle problems the last time I replaced the battery. but not as severe.

Any how I got home after nearly crashing with starting the engine 20 times. Then with the engine off I pressed the throttle right to the floor and released.- and then restarted. That seemed to work for some reason ??? The Idle is now 100% ok although still a bit rough. But at least does't stall.
I cant see why doing anything to the throttle pedal/cable should affect the idle to be killed.?? even if the cable snapped it should still idle.
NB about 10% of the starts the idle actually idled ok for a few minutes before failing again

Any thoughts greatfully received

I now darent go out!!

1992 ford tempo stalls when at a stop light. It runs fine when moving


Here is the common cause of 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.

2001 gmc jimmy 4.3l.idles low and will stall when put into gear unless engine is reved up a little.


Clean the Idle air control valve (IAC), it's located by the throttle body so the best thing to do is give the throttle body a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner. Do not use carb cleaner, it's to corrosive for the gaskets used on the throttle body's. Just follow the instruction on the spray can and after your done putting everything back together. Turn the ignition key's to the run position for 10 seconds and then off for 10 seconds to reset the IAC. Start the engine and let idle for 1 min and go for a test drive. If that does not work, turn the ignition to the run position and pull the ecm(BATT) fuse out for 30 seconds and then place it back in start te engine. The engine may stall but let it, don't touch anything. Just start it again and let idle for 1 min then go for a test drive. The ECM is just relearning the sensors like the first time the jimmy was driven off the assembly line. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted be glad to get your jimmy running 100%.

Engine Stalls When stopped and in Drive


Question, did you replace the throttle body, or clean the throttle plate, it will carbon up and block air needed for the idling speed to be correct. Also check for vacuum leaks, as the older vehicles didn't have good vacuum hoses. Good luck
