    The device on a petrol engine that maintains the idle is the idle-air-control-valve located on the inlet manifold, prone to start sticking due to carbon (especially if you have dual fuel LPG)

    This would be the first thing to test... have you done that?

Chevrolet Caviler 2.4 - 2000 Stalls at idle (stopped) once car is fully heated up.


Check coolant temp sensor. These fail often and cause all kinds of mystery problems. This unit acts much like a choke on old carb engines and can fail in different ways. Most common (I think) they fail such that the ECU thinks the engine is cold when it has begun to warm and thus the ECU delivers too long a pulse to the injectors so that the engine runs way too rich. I think it is also possible for the sensor to fail at any point between cold and warm such that the fuel mix is wrong except for the particular temp at which the sensor is stuck. Also O2 sensor has some fuel "trim" input.

1990 Mazda 626 Car starts, idles and runs very well when cold however whwn its hot the car is hard to start and stalls. So far the idlde air cotrol valve and mass air sensor have been replaced . Each...


Honestly sounds like the throttle position sensor, if the car is cold it will be choked and thus the throttle body flap almost closed easy to crank, more fuel less air.... when the air warms it moves the throttles actual flap opening wider, thus more air less fuel and harder starting, not as much fuel to combust and if the computer cannot sense the correct position, it will cause acceleration hesitating, poor idle, and what is called stumbling, where you press the gas and it kind of sounds like the motor sputters for a second and then goes or the occasional surging if at highway speed of say 60 mph and you feel the car kinda speed up mile or 2 and then back to the original speed.

My 93 nissan p/u had that issue, but the tps was replaced and it takes 2-3 revolutions on the motor and it's running smooth, hot or cold.

Hope this helps.

My 1999 caddilac eldorado feels like it wants to stall while in gear


Several conditions could be the cause of your problem.
  1. Bad MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor - often responsible for erratic idling
  2. Bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) - controls idle speed under all conditions ie warm, cold, + with A/C running.
It's possible to diagnose further by getting a diagnostic test done. Most chain auto parts stores will run a free diagnostic test to obtain a OBDII code (these codes specify which components are either failing or not responding) It is possible that a combination of both the MAF and TPS are contributing to your problem. If the car will idle when cold and only wants to stall once warm and under way, it's more likely than not to be the TPS.

Truck stalls at startup with cold engine, revs up then starves for fuel, give gas and works ok, once it warms up all is fine, idle,startup,is all good only during a cold start does it stall.


Without having the year, engine displacement (size), or the manufacturer, I will assume this is a ford 6 or 8 cylinder. I would begin by listening for a high pitched sucking sound (vacuum leak) this is a very common condition on ford products. If none is found I would l probably lean towards the Idle Air Bybass Valve which actually controls the idle speed, they are very prone to carbon buildup and failure. If you would like to send me more specific info on the vehicle, I will be glad to give more specific information to help you out.

Service engine soon light on idle problems (stalling) when cold. Can I try cleaning mass air flow and if so with what? 2000 gt


yes try cleaning out the intake, also check for what color and smell your exhaust is before and after its warmed up, since it only stalls when its cold it couldnt be anything with the head gaskets, so im going to says it either your air intake or fuel injectors, you might also have buildup either in the fuel injector heads or in the cylinders itself, buildup of any kind would make it idle roughly when cold and stall exactly like what your describing, hope i helped some :) let me know

Stumbling idle, stalls when throttle opens


If the car is running that bad the check engine light should be on and code/s stored in the pcm along with a snapshot of what is going on at the time the code is set. A possible solution is to check the Mass Airflow Sensor or the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor depending on which your vehicle is equipped with. The engine may run until the engine computer switches to closed loop fuel control (means its warmed up and the pcm is in control of the fuel trim) and then stall upon accel. Be sure you have checked all the basics first.

Stalling around 15 30 mph


I would try insoluating the fuel lines anywhere they go past hot parts.I would also run some fuel cleaner in with a few tanks of gasoline. It has done wonders on my truck of 189k.   Lean or no fuel related problem do not set codes. Too much unburned  fuel sets codes.
