The IAC motor is causing the problem. the iac motor is connected with two screws on the throttle body. Disconnect the battery negative wire from battery first before doing any work. Unplug the connector to the iac motor and remove the two screws. wiggle and pull out motor. Replace motor with new motor and o-ring. Installation is the reverse of removal. Hope this will help you.

Make sure that the idle motor is working.When you start it should run about 1200 rpm for a few seconds then go down to 600 rpm If not it may need cleaned or replaced.

My car will start and idle fine sometime and sometime it dies and dies when put in gear


Engine stalls cold or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.

1993 Mazda Protege as im leting the cluch out the car bogs out like its going to die i put the clutch in tell it go's back to normal and this can happen in all the gears at a low RPM it doesn't ...


Possible that the RPM for IDLE is set too low and so it seems to die off when the clutch is depressed. Check for the IDLE RPM to confirm. Also please make sure if the tuning, timing and the fuel settings are correct. If a scheduled maintenace was not done it will bbe good to have a tune up, check fuel pressure and settings along with the timing.

When i come to a stop, my car doesn't want to accelerate. I give it gas and it barely starts moving, almost like the transmission is slipping. It has an automatic transmission, if I ride the gas pedal...


evap codes won`t cause the acceleration problem.the miss fire codes could cause this if the miss fire is bad enough repair the miss fire problem first.i assume that you have checked the trany fluid for level and condition.if this happens all the time from a stop then you could have a transmission problem with 1st gear activating from a stop.if the rpm`s rise and your not moving with the rpm increase then its a transmission problem.the evap codes will have to be cleared then the car driven to see what shows up again as some false codes can set other codes.

When engine is warmed up the car begins hesitating


I really think it's the TPS, (throttle positioning sensor) on the throttle body. When this sensor is defective or out of position the vehicle will idle like that and even stall. If you haven't had it scanned, you should do so, that will probably tell you the problem.

My car idle dips to low RPM at a stop i give it gas it dies


Is the engine light on? Check the air inlet hose between the throttle body & MAF sensor for cracks or leaks. Try unplugging the MAF & see if there is any difference

1976 Gran Torino motorcraft 2150 2bbl carb. Starts and runs ok at high revs but as choke eases off and revs decrease, engine stalls. Fuel pump OK. Float levels and choke pull off OK. No obvious vacuum...


Are you sure your idle ports ( size of pinhole) in carb aren't plugged with something? What happens if it starts to die, and you give it a quick squirt of WD-40 , down throat of carb?
