    Are you cranking the engine over for a long time and killing the battery or, do you have limited cranking time before the battery goes away?

Disconnect the negative side of the battery terminal.

Charge the battery.

Disconnect the air flow meter /sensor connector and CLEAN ALL PINS in the connector.

I'm going to assume you're using the K&N tyoe air filter.

DO NOT over oil.

Over oil can coat the air mass flow sensor elements.

Put it back together and make sure tube between AFS and intake on the engine block has no air leak.

When u installed the cold air intake system was the computer reprogrammed to help compensate for the loss of the MAF/MAP sensor? Have the vehicles computer reprogrammed for the cold air system.

Chevy impala stalling issues whats the problem


That could be a lot of thing's , stalling when ,cold ,hot ,idling , in gear , coming to a stop etc... Could have a vacuum leak , problem with IAC valve - idle air control , an one of a few different sensors could be bad , mass air flow sensor , coolant temp sensor etc.. You need to have some testing done , scan tool hooked up to check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , also check engine sensor data parameters . What engine does yours have ? 3.4 or 3.8 L .
Sensor/System
?€¢
Test for conditions which cause an incorrect idle speed.


-
Throttle body tampering, excessive deposits, or damage. Refer to Fuel System Description .


-
Restricted air intake system


-
Large vacuum leak


?€¢
Inspect the air intake ducts for being collapsed, damaged areas, looseness, improper installation, or leaking especially between the mass air flow (MAF) sensor and the throttle body.


?€¢
Inspect crankcase ventilation valve for proper operation.


?€¢
Inspect the throttle position (TP) sensor and related wiring. Refer to DTC P0123 .


?€¢
Monitor the 24X crank sensor and the CMP sensor present parameters on the scan tool. If both are not responding, test the sensor feed circuit. Both sensors use a separate feed circuit but are internally connected to power. Test all CKP sensor A and CMP sensor circuits for intermittents. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.


?€¢
Monitor the 3X parameter on the scan tool. If the 3X is not responding, inspect the CKP sensor B and circuits for intermittents. Inspect the ignition control (IC) circuit, IC timing control circuit, low resolution engine speed signal circuit and the low reference circuit for intermittents. If these circuits become open, or shorted may not set a DTC immediately, but are capable of causing driveability complaints. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.


?€¢
Test the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system for proper operation. Refer to Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) System Description .


?€¢
Inspect the transaxle range switch input with the vehicle in drive and the gear selector in drive or overdrive.

04 silverado P0446 low idle


Sound to me like the computer has gone into "limp" mode, it is working just good enough to make it to a repair center. At this point it needs to go on an analyzer and make the necessary corrections then the computer will have to reset it self. Some analyzers can get rid of the bad code and the computer will come back by it self. But something has gone bad and the computer is compensating for it.

T here are no adjustments they are computer controlled, you can not adjust them, what you need to do is check the idle air control valve it sounds like its bad and not working this is common, when start the truck it should idle up and slowly drop to idle replace that valve.heres a picture of it.its located on intake on throtlebody. hope this helps.also idle spec is 650rpm at idle.f3cecb3.jpg

IDLE PROBLEM


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), 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.
