I am dealing with the same issue. I have had the computer checks and there is nothing to indicate an issue.There were no computer error codes yet I stall at red lights.

The O2 sensor, the speed sensor or the MAP sensor may be one of the problems. The MAP sensor measure the air pressure in the manifold. It is commonly mounted on the fender and is low in cost and easy to replace. To test it if your if your car won't start, unplug the electrical connection from the MAP sensor. If it starts, then you know to replace the MAP sensor. The Hall Effect sensor can fail and not set an error code. This is an inespensive part that sits underneath the rotor in the distributor cap on cars without distributorless ignition. This only applies to cars made after 1996. Also check the fuel injectors and fuel filter.

If you have a burglar alarm, make sure that it is not causing the problem. It often times can cause the stalling issue.

Rough idle 95 astro van, I did a full tune up , plugs,wires,cap, rotor,air filter,and fuel filter and cleaned egr vavle.

I actually had to replace my EGR valve and the gasket. I clean the valve well and reused both. I don't think the gasket sealed well enough though. So I went ahead and got a new valve, gasket and changed them. It runs a lot smoother now.

Hi, My 96 jeep cherokee is running rough at idol and backfires. I replaced the fuel pump, plugs ,cap, rotor, intake air contorl mod.and wires. I cand seem to find egr. valve. can you please help?

You have a vacuum line off somewhere, or the egr valve is leaking at idol, or you have manifold vacuum hooked up to the egr valve, make sure the vacuum line going to the egr valve has no vacuum at idol, only during acceleration.

R&R EGR Valve 97 Nissan . After replacing the plugs, cap & rotor and wires the vehicle still runs rough stalls when turning it is 5 speed. All that to say, I was told to replace EGR Valve I can see...

It takes a 17 mm wrench to losen the tubing on both sides of the valve. Then it is a matter of unmounting the bracket and pulling off the vacuum line. Make sure that you losen both lines BEFORE unmounting the bracket or you will never get it off. Sometimes getting the tube fitting (flare nut) loose requires a flare nut spanner wrench. Some EGR vlaves on have one flare unt and have gasket under the EGR valve where it mates to the manifold. Make sure you replace the gasket if yours has one.

(flare nut spanner wrench)

I also recommend that you use a long piece of solid copper wire #10 to push through the tubes to remove the carbon build up.

It really is a matter of time. The most difficult thing about changing an EGR valve is getting the flare nut(s) loose.

Thanks for using FixYa.

vacuum leaks, plugs, check the wires for corrosion on the coil packs, the 3800's are known for corroded contacts there, also a common problem is the intake gasket leaking near the egr valve, check to see if it is wet around where the egr valve enters the intake manifold, check for fuel pressure, and make sure all the sensors and vac lines are plugged in properly

Wow you have replaced a lot of stuff. Lets go back to the Fuel pump. When you replaced it did you replace the hose between the pump and the sending unit. These are common for splitting. Have you hooked up a fuel pressure gauge to check what pressure you have? It should be real close to 13 psi and should raise to at least 18 or 19 when you pinch off the return line.
