Do you have idle at 650 rpm per spec?
If you can adust idle to correct spec then you are right : it is an easy fix.
How do you do that: by adjusting the gas cable at engine side.
If this is not a fix, then things are not simple as it is. You don't have the right mixture of air/gas ratio: 14.6:1.
Try to addess it as early as possible so you can experience the least cost of solutions for remedy before preparing for the hight cost solution.
After all the solutions from your mechanic won't work, the last costly thing is your fuel distribution out of calibration. Good luck.

Car stalls, will usually restart after sitting a while


Seeing as how you had a check light on,
what codes were present & did you diagnose
& repair them ?

Sounds like a bad fuel pump on the stalling or

The TCC solenoid in the transmission needs to be replaced. It is under the side cover. It controls the converter to lock up for better fuel mileage. If you want to drive car until you get it fixed you can un-plug the connector going to the transmission on the front of transmission. This will keep it from going to lock up mode and keep it from stalling until you can fix it. Common problem.

2001 mercedes benz ml320 stalls


It could just be the fuel injection tips have black tar build up. But, this sounds like the typical, 1980's problem with people who used to put cheap gas in their mercedes. You get gunk buildup in your gas pump. When the car is hot, the gunk expands and you get no gas flow. First try about 4 applications of puting a bottle of good fuel injection cleaning fluids in only half tank gas and let it run almost dry. If you don't see a substantial change, don't even waste your time playing with it trying to clean anything, those are only agrivating band aids on a broken leg. Change the fuel pump! your car should be as good as new.

95 dakota dies when warmed up


yes it can but you may have a coolant temp sensor acting up which causes the computer to open the injectors to much which can also cause this 02 sensor code. when it stalls do u have spark and fuel pressure.

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs


check the fuel regulator,while running unplug the red vacumn hose and if gas squirts out the hole,then it is bad,if not then possibly plugged catalytic converters,drive it on the highway if you can, and stop and look underneath at it and if it looks red,then replace them.Check to see if its overheating,usually a really hot hood tells the story.
