Why does the engine revs drop too low and sometimes stalling when I engage any gear?


This can be either an engine management issue (bad idle air control) or a transmission issue if an automatic trans (torque converter lock up problem). Idle air control can often be cleaned so = cheap fix. Trans problem not so easy.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

With my foot on the brake and in drive I rev the gas but when I take my foot off the car idle drops and then it stalls


Check under the hood for a vaccuum leak. This could be a bad vaccuum hose. If no vaccuum leak then this actually sounds like your IAC is bad (idle air control motor) and needs replaced.

Will it stall if you keep your foot on the gas like the Idle speed is set low? Possible Idle speed motor? I'll have to look up the location of the low coolant sensor.

I believe it is the computer sensing the exhaust components and that is the reason for the drop. My truck does the same thing, so that is my answer.
