HELP!!!! 91 LS400 ERRATIC IDLING

91 LS400 in tip top condition until two days ago. Drove fine to work but at the end of the day starts to idle very erratic, from 150 RPM upto 1500ish and then stalls. Will not stay alive if accelerator is depress. Does this same thing constantly. Sometimes stay idling but once put in gear will stalls. There are no check engine light, no code in memory and no indication prior to it start happening. Checked TPS, MAF, fuel fliter, fuel pump, ECU relay/fuse, fuel flow, air filter, wire bundle in trunk and all the other possibilities out there that I can think of but nothing works. Cleared ECU memory this mrning and car idle fine for almost 40 minutes but stalls once put in gear. Car has 138K and is religiously serviced and maintained. Any assistance will be well appreciated. Oh, I am a "NEWBIE" to this site.

From your description of the knocking, mileage, and oil crusted on the intake valves you need an engine or a complete rebuild of the original.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII sometimes stalls when idling in gear


Do you have a "Check Engine" light?

Check the coils in each cylinder. At 140k the valve cover gaskets tend to break and oil will fill the coils causing misfires and stalling.

Car won't start until jumped


Most likely the battery. Most auto parts stores will check it for free with the hopes that you will buy your replacement from them.

My 2010 ranger idles fine when cold, but cuts out when idling warm


Have a local shop or auto parts store read the fault codes, it sounds as if you may have an o2 sensor that is out of range.

I have a 1989 ford bronco with a 302 that ideals up and down and dies out when park in red light


A number of things could be the problem here:
  1. Bad plugs - fouled plugs would cause erratic idling
  2. Bad wires - also would cause erratic idling
  3. Bad or worn distributor cap
  4. Bad MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor
  5. Bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor - this controls the idling speed under all conditions. A bad TPS would idle fine under certain conditions ie engine cold, engine warm with AC on etc but could be bad when truck is warm and at a stop.
