Question about 1985 Nissan Sentra 2 Door
Two things: The car will not idle...it runs fine as long as you are moving, but shuts down if at a stop. Also, what is the procedure for changing CV joints?
It might be the IAC to test it while at a low idle which you might to hold the gas pedal a little since it is stalling...turn on rear defroster if you have one, or A/C and if the IAC is doing it's job the rpm's will increase some. If it doesn't increase, but wants to get worse...that might be a good part to replace which is on the throttle body.

ngine stalling and rough run
issue at low speeds
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
