This can be cuased by a sludged up engine throttle valve and automatic idle speed control valve, do the following procedure and this should fix it.

To correct this problem I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Does it idle ok at stop lights? if it dies there to the idle speed sensor may be bad. if it idles fine until you put it in park then its not the sensor and i would look for A SHORT IN AN IGITION WIRE THAT IS BEING GROUNDED AS YOU SHIFT TO PARK.

Engine dies when cold


All cars are sensitive to cold .it being a new car you can turn on the ignition for say 30sec to a min before cranking to allow the oxygen sensor heater to warm so it can read properly and will help in these conditions .also a new set of spark plugs can help too.

First is your car still under warranty? If not we are working on an 09 Tiguan that wants to sometimes wants to die out at stops.We are replacing the in tank fuel pump and fuel pump control module.

1992 cavalier. starts and drives fine, but will die after it's been driven if i try to put it in gear again. What's the problem? bought it site unseen, drove it home about 7 miles and it started sputtering...


Try pulling the vacuum line off of the EGR valve when the engine is warm and starts to sputter. If it runs good cold and then dies when warm and won't start again until the engine cools it is most likely a bad or sticking EGR valve. Try the procedure to confirm it is the EGR. You can check the internet for location and an image of the EGR valve for your specific car. Please rate me on this answer.

Well when I drive the car for a bit, and it is warmed up when I start to decelerate coming to a stop the car will **** and when I come to a complete stop it will start jerking and then die. If I put it in...


In my opinion it could be:
1. Battery discharged
2. Battery connections loose or corroded
3.Air filter element dirty or clogged
4.Fuel injection system dirty or clogged

I would go for this last and check the air intake meter, clean the injectors, etc.
