Check for vaccum leaks, make sure throttlebody is clean.i would guess the car runs fine besides the stalling because you listed no other problems, so also check your iac (Idle air contorl) valve.

1987 Suzuki samari jeep starts fine when choke go off it dies,u got to keep foot on the gas to keep it running.


This is an old vehicle probably in need of some TLC. When was it last fully serviced? Get the carb stripped and cleaned. My guess there is dirt in the carb causing poor running.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Starts dies


an alternator won't stall your car, the battery provides power to keep the spark going. It sounds like you could have some bad fuel, if you're able to run the throttle manually with your foot and keep it going that would indicate idle control. but if it stalls still when you are giving it gas. I would guess a fuel supply issue, either water in your gas, or fuel pump. Good Luck.

It starts but will not idle. if you take your foot off the gas it dies. sometimes it will run good and i take it around the block it will die when i come to a stop unless i put it in neutral and keep my...


Possible areas of concern are:
  • faulty MAF (Mass Air Flo) sensor
  • bad EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculator
  • bad TPS
It's most likely a combination of the 3 but the main cause would normally be the TPS (Throttle Positioning Sensor) which regulates engine idle speeds under different conditions.
