My car keeps stalling everytime I stop or slow down but starts up straight away after it has stalled?


The vacuum hoses have probably started cracking at the turns. If there has been any under the hood work done, sometimes things get pushed on or moved and the rubber hoses on the vacuum system will get old and crusty and crack. That cause the car to die when it slows down to an idle, like at a stop sign or stop light. then it starts and runs normal until the next stop sign.

I have a 1997 oldsmobile lss, drives fine down the road but seems to choke out and die at stop signs and when i slow down to take a corner. the problem is progessively getting worse. any ideas on what to...


you could check the throttle valve for being dirty.the valve is in the intake manifold where the air snorkel connects to it.where the throttle cable hooks up to the shaft this is part of the the valve,if you look inside the intake while moving the throttle you will see the valve move.this is the part that needs cleaning both front and back side and the area of the intake were it rests when closed.

I have been having problems with my 1998 ford windstar 3.8L with rough idle and dying, i changed the mass air flow sensor, and air filter, ran gas treatment through it, and it hasn't helped, then yesterday...


I have a 98 Windstar and it would die when pulling up to a stop sign, slowing when coming to a stop or making a slow turn. According to Ford recall 98E03 EMISSIONS RECALL some vehicles may stall during deceleration when coming to a stop, during slow speed parking maneuvers and/or coasting thru slow sweeping turns. This may be caused by the Powertrain Contro lModule (PCM) calibration dropping the rpms too quickly during deceleration. This involves reprograming the PCM. The revised calibration will allow the engine rpms to drop slowly during low speed maneuvers to reduce the possibility of a stall. Call your local FORD dealership (have your VIN handy) and have them check to see if this recall has been performed on your vehicle.

My car just started acting up just last week, when i go to start up my car in the mourning it acts like its dead its a very slow start up, i'll let it warm up and i drive it down the street when i come to...


I somewhat had a problem similar to this I would suggest checking your coolant temperature sensor, its in the engine manifold, I have a 98 it was really easy to do, its like a 14 dollar piece, and what will happen over time the OEM sensor they have will crack, causing your computer to read that it is actually a lot colder than what it is and run a richer mixture causing your car to stall out when slowing down.

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.
