More than likely it is your idle control motor.

Have a 1995 Buick Regal. Car stalls when braking at a stop sign or braking into a left or right turn.RPMs drop to 500 then stalls without warning.Car starts right up with no problem and runs great.


Do you hear a sucking noise from under the hood when you apply the brakes? You could have a bad brake booster venting too much engine vacuum when applying the brakes causing the engine to die.

This sounds like a defective MAF (mass airflow sensor)

I have been having problems with my 1998 ford windstar 3.8L with rough idle and dying, i changed the mass air flow sensor, and air filter, ran gas treatment through it, and it hasn't helped, then yesterday...


I have a 98 Windstar and it would die when pulling up to a stop sign, slowing when coming to a stop or making a slow turn. According to Ford recall 98E03 EMISSIONS RECALL some vehicles may stall during deceleration when coming to a stop, during slow speed parking maneuvers and/or coasting thru slow sweeping turns. This may be caused by the Powertrain Contro lModule (PCM) calibration dropping the rpms too quickly during deceleration. This involves reprograming the PCM. The revised calibration will allow the engine rpms to drop slowly during low speed maneuvers to reduce the possibility of a stall. Call your local FORD dealership (have your VIN handy) and have them check to see if this recall has been performed on your vehicle.

(1995) Often my car dies at stop signs. . . Nothing real weird happens. The rpm just drops and it dies.it has other issues though that I think are related. It also hesitates when to Drive the first time I...


The idle is set too low, the alternator is not charging enough, poor battery connection, filthy throttle body, dirty air filter are some of the most common causes of stalling at lower rpms.

My Jetta is not a TDI....My car is dying when I come to a stop. It will start right back up. It also shows the battery warning light. Would this be the battery or alternator?


It is possible.

When at idle the RPMs drop as the engine slows. This results in the alternator slowing. If it is failing or you have a problem with the charging system it can cause the car to die.

Usually however with a charge failure it will not start back again easily.

Try checking under full load. Run all electrical systems radio, heater, lights etc at idle. If you see the lights start to fade and the engine dies it is likely the charging system.

Most likely the alternator or part of the regulating system.

You can have the alternator tested or you can do it yourself.

Connect at voltage tester to the terminals on the alternator. Run the engine and measure the output. It should read as per the indications on the alternator. There is a sticker on the alternator telling you the output.


Start there.

Hope this helped. Please rate if this helps you.

Check your vacuum lines, make sure there is no leaks, and go from there, then all you electrical connection in the engine compartment.
I have a 1996 Jetta Trek Edition, the hoses, and wire harness, are so brittle, any movement can cause hoses and wire insulation to crack.
