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.

Im experiencing a power problem. My battery light was on, n later my car wouldnt start. I had to have it boosted off but it died a mile later.


It appears that your alternator is not charging so that the battery has been totally discharged. A boost start got you going again but with no charging as you drive it was only a matter of time for any slight charge to be used up. To get you going again temporarily have another vehicle give you a boost but leave their vehicle connected for at least 15 minutes with their engine running at a fast idle. This shiuld give you about 1 hours running providing you dont turn off the engine. Have the alternator output checked by an auto electrician.

Have a 1991 or 1995 Intrepid and car died, tried to boost the car gave it power than died, we noticed corrosion on the posts so cleaned the posts. (Noticed lights and power was coming back on when...


did it stay running when connected to the car giving the boost? if so then the alternator is not charging the electrical system, get it serviced or replaced.

Changed Battery and Cables...now the car dies at idle every time.


Better take a close look at all your vacuum lines first. One might have gotten pulled off during the installation of your battery. Have someone sit in it and keep it running while you wiggle lines around and listen for a hiss. Good luck.

A few Problems: Starting, Heater & Radio


Problem 1: buy a system heater to keep the engine warm at night.
You can buy them at any autoparts store . You take your pick from the variety.
Place a light 100 Watt Bulb near the battery but not too close to anything else where it might burn anything.

Problem 2. Check your coolant level to see if you have the proper level. Make sure you have 1/2 antifreeze and 1/2 water if you add any coolant /antifreeze and bleed the colant system. By running the car let it cool, then turn the radiator cap or turn the bleed screw provided on some cars near the thermostat outlet. Then adding some more water and coolant etc.The tightening the cap or bleed screw. When radiator is full. Check the radiator and and remove any debris that may be keeping the air out.

Problem 3. Will get fixed because your battery won't die.
