I have a new 2015 Ford 150 Lariat. I have noticed that when it idles for a while, at a traffic light or in stalled traffic, it feels like the engine stops.


You need the computer controlled idle speed control system run through an active test procedure, and yes unfortunately this requires a trip to the dealer in most cases as very few shops have the right scanner, but check around..

I have a 1997 Hyundai Excel and its surging at about 3000 rpm and under load like climing hills what would cause this. Tia


Engine is surging or the transmission slipping? My guess is the transmission is slipping, letting the engine rev up to 3000. Does it feel like it quits pulling?

ALTERNATORS DEAD EVERY MORNING AND GOES ON 30


Sounds like a wiring problem. The alternator needs a small amount of power from the battery to get itself started up because it uses an electromagnet but once it starts to produce power it can power the magnet itself. some alternators (yours included) are known as "self-exciting" which means that it retains some residual magnetism and so once you get it spinning so fast (usually about 3000 engine RPM) it begins to produce the little bit of power needed to power the magnet and then turns on. if you peel back the covering of the wires connected to the alternator I bet you will find a broken or chaffed one. Also, If you rev the engine above 3000 RPM right after you start it your alternator will probably kick in.
