I have a 2001 Intrepid and mine does the same thing. I haven't found it to be anything to worry about unless it idles high for more than a few seconds.

My 97 intrepid will start up, but putter out within seconds


Map Sensor or Crank Sensor. If you have a code reader the map sensor should throw a code, the crank sensor most often will not. Both will cause the car to start, idle to around 1,000 R's and then die.

Van idles fine but when going the the road giving it gas it acts as if it isn't getting the proper gas ... it back fires....repleaced fuel filter and pump, crank and cam sensior


sounds like the timing is off. check the firing order to be sure your plug wires are on the correct positions on the coil packs. if that checks out, possibly a timing chain may need replaced. i hope this helps

I have a 91 firebird with a 3.1 v6. It will idle fine when I first crank it and run down the road fine. But after driving maybe 5-10 miles it will stall anytime I let off the gas. It has a manual...


The first thing I would do is try to relearn the idle. To do this, first disconnect the negative battery cable for a few minutes, then reconnect the cable. Then using an unfolded paper clip jump terminals A and B in the connector under the dash near the steering column, then turn the key on for about 5-10 seconds, and then turn it back to off. Remove the paper clip. Set the parking brake, and make sure everything is turned off, radio, heater, everything. Then start the car and do not touch anything. Let it idle until you hear the cooling fan come on and then go off. Then turn the ignition off. Process complete. If this has no effect on the cars idle, it's time to replace the idle air control valve and clean the passages in the throttle body. As a side note, you really don't want to have to replace the fuel pump, That involves removing the rear-end and the exhaust system from the car, your fuel tank is located above those assemblies.

thats what it sounds like, a bad or clogged up fuel filter. if it bogs down when giving it gas, or going up a hill. its probably the fuel filter not letting enough fuel to engine. that is why it stalls at a stop. if this helps but not fully. check or clean idle air control motor. this is what maintains proper idle of vehicle. have a good day !!

My son left the dome light on all night. Replaced the battery. The truck starts but will not stay running. Ran perfect when I parked it.


The computer has lost its memory for idle control possibly.Try this, crank the truck and shut is off.Do this as many as 20 times , each time try to leave it running for 2 or 3 seconds so you can see if it will idle on its own.Do this till it relearns base idle.

hey that sounds familiar!have you checked your idle control sensor? let me tell you 1st you crank it cold,you have to keep your foot on the gas pedal until it warms up.but then when you come up to red light quick stop,the engine dies or wants to stop? sometimes it starts fine? but when it does,after running for a few minutes,it idles up and down? when it's warm after driving 15miles or so,you shut it off and try a restart,and the engine starts,but idles up and down? all of the above are signs of a bad idle control sensor.the part costs about $20.00 u.s. 2bolts removal 1 PLUG IN REMOVAL you may be able to do it yourself.have an autozone or advance autoparts store employee show you where it's located.you would be shocked at how many great people there are left in the world! i'm answering your question for free at midnight from the u.s. think i'm bored? no. just love helping people like you! thank you so much!
