This could be anything from an ignition issue to a clogged catalytic converter. If the converter is clogged you may have a fueling issue that caused it to break down prematurely. This would have to be addressed before replacing the cat that is if the cat is plugged. Now if you have an ignition issue this also could cause the cat to deteriorate quicker. Either way it sounds like your going to have to have a professional look at it. Now if your lucky it may just be a bad sensor. But the question is which one. Again this is money wisely spend if you leave this to a professional.

SOURCE: runs first gear to max rpms before shifting.

You probably have a bad governor pressure sensor and solenoid.The pressure sensor is what normally goes bad ,but from vast experience,i replace both of them together and change fluid and filter.

Try cleaning the idle speed control valve and the throttle body, then disconnect the battery negative and let stand for 5 minutes and try it.

2003 nissan frontier stalls when i slam on the brakes


Check oil level, but might be idle motor going bad. The idle motor kicks down the idle as needed as the rpm dictates. If sudden reduction in rpm occurs the idle motor normally keeps up and motor continues running at reduced idle. Unless its going out on you, then you may experience stalling when speed is suddenly reduced such as hard braking.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 (1996 and newer) or a OBD1 (1995 and older) fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Plug the vacuum line you unplugged and the idle should come back. Change your air filter and the map sensor. check for correct coolant level and replace the coolant temp. sensor. This sensor affects cold starting and idle through the ECU (open loop mode, rich fuel mapping and 1200 rpm idle) It should go to closed loop mode in the ECU once engine warm up is achieved ( lean fuel mapping and normal 900 rpm idle). Do not unplug anything else till you perform an OBDII scan of the stored fault history

you have a device that controls your idle speed called the idle air control valve. When it gets gummed up your engine may stall. However, the problem sounds more like the fuel pump, it's relay, or its ground. The ground is located on the left frame rail at the rear of the van. sometimes corrosion will cause a bad ground. You have many other sensor that can be bad, or connections to. when you say stall do you mean it will cut off while driving down the road or only when you let off the gas pedal to idle?

One suggestion:
Speed sensor failure.

Info:
Some of the classic symptoms, stalling at dead stops. failure to auto lock doors. poor fuel economy. Failure to go to overdrive.


Recommendation:
Go to your local parts store and run the failure codes.

Shop notes:
Your ECU thinks that the engine is running with out moving, During slow down the engine steps down the idle to match ground speed and as a result the engine will not stall. At present it goes directly to idle and stalls due to drag on motor.
Hope this tip helps.

When i start my 1997 Geo Metro, it often sputters


Try this
Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation, 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.

What did I do to my transmission?!?!?


You stated that you checked the fluid level, I'll assume you did that correctly (engine running at idle, tranny at operating temp, level ground).
Have you ever had the fluid and filter replaced? the filter could be clogged, now allowing the fluid to circulate as needed.
