You should do a fuel pump pressure test it might be the problem, loss of fuel pressure will cause this to happen without notice

Wants to die when at stops


A lot of things can cause that on those old OBD1 systems. But I would start with cleaning the throttle plate and surrounding area with Carb cleaner, it may just not be getting enough air at idle do to carbine (Muck) deposits around the throttle plate. I would take off air cleaner hose, soak paper towel with cleaner, and open throttle plate and clean back in as far as you can reach, and the edges of the throttle plate. Hope this helps, good luck.

My car will start and idle fine sometime and sometime it dies and dies when put in gear


Engine stalls cold or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.

clean the idle air control valve. This thing controls your idle speed but gets gummed up with deposits. buy a can of spray carb cleaner and maybe a cheap set of torx L wrenches if you dont have any. remove IAC and clean valve and bore with paper towels and carb cleaner. Also use some of that carb cleaner to clean the throttle bore and plate using an old toothbrush and towels. and lastly replace the PCV valve. Your truck will now idle like it just came off the showroom floor!

1997 ford taurus have to give it gas to start it


From your description of the problem The first thing that comes to light is the idle air control valve.
This devise is mounted near the throttle body and controls the airflow past the throttle plate when the throttle is closed.
There isn't a position sensor on itso if it becomes sticky it won't turn on your check engine light.
It's a fairly common problem. I have tried in the past to free them up but it never seems to work out well.
Hope this helps you along to a repair.

Engine starts but will not idle, i give it gas but will not sustain in running afyer 2 seconds engine dies


check all spark plugs and wires also check mass air flow senser located on intake tube if all is still in good working condition check the throttle position sensor if that is good then it may be your fuel pump please update when possable.

Stalling


IT COULD BE THE IDLE SPEED SENSOR THAT IS NOT ALLOWING IT TO STAY RUNNING. THIS DEVICE IS LOCATED NEAR THE THROTTLE BODY, WITH A PLUG ON IT WITH THREE WIRES. UNPLUG IT TO SEE IF IT WILL IDLE. IF IT DOES THEN REPLACE IT. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. PLEASE KEEP ME INFORMED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCED FOR AN HONEST RATING.
