Here are the common cause 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: When driving car slightly stepping

Sounds like a plugged up catalytic converter. The only way to tell is have it hooked up to a code reader( at most part stores or small town shop) and it will show if the O2 sensor is getting a bad reading behind the cat.

It's shutting off while driving the red triangle show up it tell me to to safely now and shut completely off why does it do that


I think its telling you to stop the engine as safely as you can, such as not in heavy traffic. If the engine computer sees the engine is running too hot it will shut it down to prevent damage.
Have you checked the radiator and is the cooling fan working ?

96 maxima is shutting off without warning and takes a while to start up. Why?


When it fails to start you will need to determine if it is because of lack of fuel to the injectors or lack of spark to the plugs to proceed.
You can check the computer for trouble codes too.

My car is shutting off when i stop at stop lights or just stop in traffic. What could be the problem?I drive a Lancer 2002


It sounds like your EGR system is malfunctioning. EGR or Exaust Gas Recirculation is only supposed to be active when your on the throttle or driving down the road. If your EGR system is allowing any amount of exaust gas past it at idle, then it can cause very harsh idle or cause the car to die.

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic


A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!
