Difficult to say,so many things effect the idle.Throttle position sensor,also the egr position sensor,and the mass air flow sensor for just some of the reasons.Check the air filter for blockage first off.Remove the mass air flow and inspect it for forgien matterial that might caught in the sensor.Any check engine lights on?If so,a code reader might give you an idea where to look for the problem.Some parts stores will offer to do this at no cost.But check with a mechanic before you purchase a part from them,to see what you choices are.The coolant sensor would be my first guess,sense the idle does fine after warm up.This tells me the sensor may be out of range,not sensing cold coolant.Let me know how you come out,Let me know if this helps you at all.

From your description it could be fuel or ignition. Ignition is usually easier to start with and only checking the spark power and quality as the engine dies will indicate what is happening - if anything.

A bad EGR valve could cause your car to experience hard starting, a rough idle, cruise control surges, popping noises from the exhaust, backfiring and sudden engine stops with cold weather or after deceleration.

Problems with my 94 k1500 / changed idle control valv / map sensor / throttle control sensor /plugs,wires,cap,rotor ,and fuel filter / these are all the things i have bought but nothing i have done will...


it might be the ECU, when cold the computer raises the iddle to warm it up, when reaches temp., it dropes it down to normal iddle, but it might not know where the correct iddle is, it might be another sensor like a cam, map, throttle position senssor.

Dies at Idle and decelration - won't start for 15


Hello. I bet your problem is one of these two things. 1: your timing is out. Making it run at such a low idle that it stalls itself out. 2: your truck is running too rich and flooding itself out. Just adjust theb timing a bit and lean the motor out a bit and you should be as good as new! Hope this helps!

Windstar 3.8l 2000 doesn't keep running at iddle. It stall


Does van stay running when you hold the gas pedal down? Check fuel pressure at fuel rail should be 30 psi when key is turned on. EGR valve and EVP sensor also control idle.

1992 gmc chevy 350 wont idle when warm


This could be a number of things but i think that your problem sounds like a vacuum leak or an EGR problem. Try listening for leaks and try un-plugging the EGR solenoid valve one time.

1992 chevy corsica runs rough,stall or dies after stopping


Sounds the EGR valve and EVP sen is bad even if you tested it. The EGR valve cntrols idle and if carbon up will make the car stall or idle high and low (rpms going up and down) This was common on all cars during that time. I would say replace the EGR valve and senosr. This should take care of the problem. One more thing have the fuel pressure check on the car.
