Sounds like the computer needs to relearn base idle or the idle air control (IAC) is stuck.

Sounds to me like you should be looking at fuel system ,fuel pump, pluged fuel filter or possibly a bad tps (throttle position sensor) it doesnt sound like it has anything to do with charging system

Testimonial: "Thanks Carl! I will let you know what we find out...he has had issues with the IAC in the past so I am hoping it's not that or if the security system has tripped something with the fuel system...not sure if that makes sense :) I will let you know what we find out and again, thanks!"

SOURCE: Idle Speed dies

I have a 1995 Mazada 626 V6 and i had a simular problem. My mechanic couldn't figure it out. My boyfriend did the usual checks also, but 1 thing extra he raised the idle to 1100-1200 rpm's from the 750-1000 it was at...well since then no problem.
good luck

SOURCE: wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

You haven't given enough info to diagnose the problem. Did the car die while idling? Could it be restarted? Will it run if you keep your foot on the gas pedal? Etc...

Dies when foot off gas


I would get another opinion on the alternator. There are tests that I am sure that autozone did not and cannot run. One is a load test, This would indicate if the battery is getting any electricity from the alternator under loadm diodes in the alternator could be failing. There is no way to adjust the RPM. IT should be around 800 on an automatic tranny in drive.
