SOURCE: Rough idle, stalling, cruise control out

Sounds like you have a vacuam leak.
Check the vacuom hose to the cruise canister........and work yuor way back to the source. I'll bet you find a hose off. Also, listen for any "hissing" sounds (obviously, not the carb).
Bet that solves ALL your probs.

SOURCE: my daughter ford bronco 2 keeps stalling.

This sounds like some troubleshooting will be needed. SOmetimes it's the fuel relay (cheap at local autoparts store), but first, check your RPM's at idle, what are they? After you start it what with engine in gear and foot on brake, what's the RPM? I'm assuming it's an automatic off course. Other big thing, check also the oil pressure, is it low? Sometimes simple things like really low oil (often accompanied by a ticking noise from the valves) can heat up engine and cause it to strain and "choke" when stopped and still in gear. Also, check things like the airfilter, what color is the exhaust when at idle? Give me some more info and I can probably solve this:) thanks!

I have a 2002 vw gti golf with a 1.8T engine. We had it stall out on us at a stoplight so we took it in and they replaced the vacuum lines and said the problem was fixed. It's not it continues to stall...


simple test
start the engine and let idle
if idles ok , then put you foot on the brake
if it stalls ---replace the faulty brake booster
as with all faults in a cars
have the fault codes read first to avoid unnecessary waste of time and cash

Stalling at low speeds for a 2002 Pontiac Aztek


Does the battery light come on before the engine dies, or after ?
After is normal because the engine is not turning the alternator.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?
Common causes for stalling are a dirty throttle body or faulty idle air control valve.

1994 Oldsmobile Bravada dies at stoplights, just changed fuel pump/filter and egr valve.Appriciate any help. thanks


check for vacuum leaks. You can do this with a can of carb spray but please be careful as it is flammable! if the ignition wires are leaking and you hit them with carb spray you will start the engine on fire!

The safer alternative is to have the engine "smoked" for vacuum leaks. This is done with a smoker. Any place that is leaking you will see smoke.

A trained ear will also be able to hear a leak.

If no leaks are found try unplugging the MAF sensor. Is is in the air tube next to the air filter box. If performance improves try cleaning it with some MAF sensor cleaner. If that doesn't work than you may need to replace it.

Disconnected battery to install a new radio, car now idles very low & rough and acts like it wants to stall.


The PCM lost its memory. Just drive the car. As long as nothing has been touched under the hood then it will be fine in a few miles give or take.

This is normal. It will relearn

Cabin temperature issue


The car could be low on coolant. I would check that first and if its full then explore a vacuum leak.
