Take a look at the idle air control (IAC) motor and make sure that is working correctly.

SOURCE: my 2007 compass has been feeling like it is about

This is an air problem, most likely your air mass meter, or airflow meter. basically this controls the level of air to mix with the fuel its a very deliacte sensor and if its never been done on your 2007 car then this would sound like the problem to me. As you say it chokes under power I would bet on it. the other thing still air related you may have a split in an air pipe thus the air flow meter will take on far to much air and cause the car to be jerky on take off. have a good look in the engine bay at the air pipes. you dont always have to replace the air mass sensor or air flow meter, so if your comfortable with removing it give it a good clean up with some carb spray and a dry cloth.

Your air box will have a wire going to it, sometimes they are screwed in sometimes just a push plug the sensor is on the inside of the air box.

One more thing in the US you guys have different names for these parts so let me know if your stuck and I will get back to you.

Good luck

To correct this problem I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, 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: my 2002 dodge ram pick

this is usually in indication of old ignition components. sparkplug, spark plug wires, cap, rotor. This is due to moisture shorting the old components. sometimes you can see( or hear ) arcing at the spark plug wires. fill up an old spray bottle with water and mist around the engine to identify a problem area. you can do a self test of the engine computer by inserting the key and turning;

off-on, off-on, off-on. ("on" is when the dash lights come on and "off" is one click back)The codes will flash out on the check engine light in pairs of numbers with 5-5 being the end of the test. Or the codes will display on the digital odometer. write down the codes and check back if needed.

My electronic throttle control warning light came on what is wrong with my 2007 Sebring?


I have an 08 Sebring and mine has been having the etc light come on and the car will stall..with little to no notice. It's at the dealer right now and they can't figure out what is causing this because the light doesn't stay on once you turn off the car and restart it. It's kind of relieving to me that someone else is having this problem. Hopefully Chrysler can figure out what the deal is with this!!

Honda is notorius for bad MAIN RELAYS the solder in them crack and can not be seen with the nacked eye. This is due to simple expansion & contraction the solder heats up & cools down. Try that.

You have one of two very common problems.
Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.
