Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

At idle the engine revs up and down and after a few seconds it dies.

Seems to drive ok but when I come to a stop light I have to keep my foot on the gas so it won't die.

    I'm the one that asked this question and I just want everyone to know that I figured out the problem. After doing research I decided to replace my fuel filter that fixed my problem, It cost 20.99 at Napa which the repair shop cost around 300.00 and it only took me 30 minutes to replace.

When in stop and go traffic yesterday, the car suddenly died. It restarted, but would not maintain a normal idle unless kept my foot on the gas. Once we got out of the stop and go traffic it ran ok,


It will probably be OK. But if you can, find a can of brake cleaner and a toothbrush. Remove the air plenum from the throttle body. Use the cleaner to clean the throttle body inside and the back of the throttle plate as best you can. Especially around where the throttle plate sits. It will take a second or two to restart the car. Once started spray some of the brake clean into the throttle, rev it up to keep in running. This will help stop the dieing out.

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

Over revving


I don't know the year but it could be a defective IAC solenoid. If its an older truck then it could be a throttle cable.

You need to clean the throttle valve and the idle speed airbypass valve, they get full of gunk from the fuel and cause this problem, after cleaning them disconnect the battery for a few minutes and then drive a few days the problem should go away. You clean these with the engine running at high idle speed, use carb spray and spray into the intake air hose, use the whole can.
