Might want to check the IAC on the back of the throttle body.

I had to clean mine on my 2001 SCrew 2 times in 60K, from it getting gummed up.

This is where it is located :

2 bolts hold it on, think the are 7 or 8 mm ( ? ). Remove the bolts and the connector from it, and look inside. It should be fairly clean, so the plunger can move to supply air to the throttle body when the butterfly valve is closed.

The oil light could be another problem. Do you have a XTL trim level with the light and the gauge ?
Does the gauge also indicate low oil ( it is the same sensor, so it should )

Check and clean your idle control valve - this is always a good place to start for things like this. Failing that, check other sensors. Something's telling your engine to cut back the power when it shouldn't be - this is frequently sensor-related.

I'm not sure the oil is related to the other issue. Check levels and make sure you're using the correct type of oil. Too thick and it'll take longer to get about the engine, a possible cause of reduced oil pressure upon startup. Apart from that, it could be the sensor playing up - maybe have that checked out also.

Hope this helps somehow!

1996 jeep wont stay started and oil pressure gauge goes up and down


hot or cold engine , or both.?
the oil pressure will be in direct ratio to engine rpm. slow low, fast high
due to the oil pump connection to engine crankshaft.

stalls.: can be caused by 50 things, or just 4 in physics.
the EGR valve (if you have one, no engine stated)
can stick open and stall any engine, and in fact LOVES to. clean it.
1: list 12vdc to EFI. (spark and fuel brain) dash lights dim?
2: lost compression hot, ? compression tests.
3: lost spark, do spark tests. and timing, checks.
4: bad fueling, too much if floods, and misfires and stalls.
too little fuel, it starves and dies.

the 1 free test, is can you save the stall with a fast right foot.

we do the tests. avoiding those 50 guesses....
each tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap .

Car wont stay running unless foot is on the gas pedal


is the CEL check engine light out running? (it comes on stalled, and is normal that)
stalled. engine stall. no year, now that makes this 10x impossible
and even more impossible no engine stated, (displacement or VIN)
F22? 2.3. 2.7? 3.0L?
if in usa, (no loctation stated ) open hood, look up, see tag?
see vacuum EPA map, see engine type? bingo.

so I wall answer in the generic, (ALL CARS gasoline)
fails hot or cold engine, does hot engine reach 180F and hold?
wow, how low was the oil, off end of stick, none?
stalling is caused by over 50+ things. (we do tests to find it fast )
we use tools, do you have tools, or can buy them, or do you just want
endless guessing. here is the path.
#1 stall maker is a stuck open EGR main valve, ignored during the turn up, clean it. make sure it close
in the macro,
1: bad engine, the hot engine can lose compression and stall.
tool1 the $20buck compression guage.
2: bad spark, or timed wrong. gapped plugs wrong, wrong plugs used. bad wires sets, (old dizzy engines) bad COPS newer cars.
check for hot spark at all spark plugs, skip none.
3: bad fueling (too much or not enough
if engine runs perfect and only idle is too low 800 hot is normal
no DTC 300s misfires, then maybe the ISC is just dirty.
we clean the EGR and ISC every time.
if the EGR leaks, the fast right foot can save a stall but is hard.
if the ISC sticks closed, saving the stall is piece of cake, super easy
after all , you are adding the missing air.

does that help,. no, then take it top the man, the ASE man.
The Mechanic.with the ASE patch on his /her sleeve.
no year, ouch.

REPLACED STARTER AND BATTERY,BUT ENGINE WONT STAY RUNNING WITH OUT FOOT ON GAS?


you may need to clean the throltte body, and then start the engine and hold the rpms high for a minute, then slowly reduce the gas pedal to idle, you blanked out the memory, now it needs to learn the idle speed again.

Have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500. Truck runs fine until it heats up and the termostat kicks in. It will not idle and the rpms go up and down between 300 and 1000 then stalls. When on the highway it runs fine...


likely your throttle position sensor or idle air control valve. Try disconnecting each one when the problem starts if it corrects you have found the culprit.
