Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero

Open Question

Alero 2.4L stalls when stopping.

My 2001 alero dies when i hit the breaks and try to stop for a light or slow down to turn.
1-i changed the Idle air control valve.
2-i cleaned throttle body.
3-i changed spark plugs.
none of this helped. Sometimes the car would just die while in idle and sometimes i would try to take off but when i hit the throttle the RPM dips quite a bit before it goes back up.

Any help would be highly appreciated. thanks in advance

The two most likly causes of your Idle problen are, low fuel pressure. try installing a new fuel filter. Or the other one is the Air Idle control valve, can cause the exact problem you discribed with a cold engine. Fuel Injection engines do not have a choke like carburated engines do. So the idle is computer controled thru the Air idle control valve.

SOURCE: 1999 olds alero stall whe you take your foot off

hard start is AM is most commonly caused by a defective fuel pump pressure check valve, the other stall is issue is covered by the following procedure.
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.

SOURCE: 1999 Alero stalling and trac off light coming on

does the rpm motor kick down? you may need to check your vacuum hoses, and also you may want to check your exaust, sounds wierd but that can cause the car to stall at times.as for the traction light, your hitting the brakes to hard. try slowing down a little slower while stopping, and keep distance for saftey.. if you can take it a little slower at lights and turns, without braking hard and it stops stalling.

When did you last change the spark plugs, distributor cap, ignition wires, ignition coil, fuel filter, or the fuel pump? Any one of these could causing your care to stall. Also, have you been using regular gas or premium as premium gas can cause your engine to not combust properly if it wasn't designed for premium

Usually the problem of hesitation is caused by a faulty throttle position sensor or low fuel pressure, and stalling is a dirty throttle body or faulty idle air control valve.

My car stalls when slowing down, turning slowly or stopped at a light


THERE ARE MANY THINGS IT COULD BE BUT I WOULD START WITH A GOOD TUNE UP AND THROTTLE BODY CLEAN, THEN OR BEFORE THEN EVEN CHECK FOR VACCUM LEAKS. DOES THE CAR IDLE ROUGH? VACCUM WILL CAUSE THAT. MAP SENSOR IS ANOTHER POSSIBILITY. IS YOU LIGHT ON AND IF SO WHAT KIND OF CODE DOES IT THROW?

2000 Alero idles low and dies when stopped.


How does it idle when you first start or idle when hot.
On the top of the air intake tube there is a small screw which should when screwed in speed up the idle and if it dosent work or it idles fine when cold or warm at idle then its your GEARs are binding up and there's not to much you can do about that ........sorry

check air flow duct where the throttle valve is . check the pvc valve . make sure it isnt stuck open. check the egr valve . it will stick open stall out motor .use a scanner it will tell you if you got egr valve problems. check fuel pressure. it could be stop up fuel filter bad fuel pump fuel pump relay.your car problem sound like a major vacuum leak . change spark plug and wires if they have not been change in a while. it could idle air control. hook a scanner .it could give you a code.

Engine kills when engine warm


You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

So I guess that would be the same as the Idle Air Control Valve for the 4cylinder
