    Try increasing the idle speed and also check for a dirty air cleaner - and also a loose or broken vacuum line.

Check the catalytic converter or exhaust for a restriction. some other things to look at as well would be a restricted air filter,fuel filter,and or old spark plugs. look the car over and inspect each item i described. if you have not had the car serviced in a while,take it to a place to have the work done.

What could be wrong with my Toyota Echo if the engine chugs while idling, and the car loses power when accelerating (stalling out if accelerating too quickly)?


There are numerous things that will cause this problem. If the check engine light is on, have the codes checked to see if there is a problem the computer has found to cause this issue. Even without the check engine light on, there may be a code stored. You can also do a visual inspection under the hood for any disconnected hoses causing vacuum leaks. These are the best places to begin with diagnostics

The engine sputters when in drive but runs smooth in park


You have a Idle air control valve,but it would not stall you out when you accelerate,A badly plugged airfilter can stall you as you acclerate, A plugged exhaust or catalytic can do this but you would not be able to rev the engine, and you would has power loss on acceleration.The only thing that comes close to what you are experiencing would be the MAF (mass air flow) air duct taking in false air check to see if there is any torn that can cause false air.

Every time my car comes to a red light it powers off.why?


EGR (exhaust gas recirculation),or TPS (throttle position sensor) When the vehicle makes a stop and go into idle. The RPM is basically too low to maintain the RPM, If the vehicle runs 800 RPM in park or neutral and doesnt stall the setting is correct. If it stall in neutral or park and has a hard time accelerating you will need a TPS, The EGR can stall a engine if it stays open underload approching a stop where it doesnt close properly

93 eldorado stalled and wont start again after engine wash


Since you said it stalled out first, and then wouldn't start, we would assume that these are related, but not necessarily. If they are related, the bad or discharged battery would not explain both as the alternator would have provided power to keep it running. Loose or corroded battery terminals or wires that provide power to the computer and ignition would. A neutral safety switch that assures that it is in neutral or park may be better or it may not be in neutral or park, again not explaining why it would stall. It is always wise to disconnect the battery cables when spraying your engine compartment. Check your main fuses as they may have blown from the water grounding something out.
