It seems like a vaccum leak. It is not unusual that a vacuum line gets disconnected accidentally when the pluggs are changed.

If this is your case, the Check Engine light should be ON. I would take the vehicle to the shop where service was performed and explained them the problem, they should make the proper adjustments free of charge. Or, you can take your vehicle to an AutoZone or an AutoParts store and have them read the Vehicle Computer, (this is a free service for their customers), then with a print out of the Trouble Codes and they description go to the Service Shop.

Does a 2004 prado have acam belt or a chain belt

Hi Waynee,
You forgot to say which engine is in your vehicle?
The HZ engine has timing gears and a timing belt (That's a diesel engine) the belt drives the injector pump
The KZ engine also has gears and a timing belt,. (Also a diesel engine) same as above.
The RZ engine uses just a timing belt (And that one is a petrol engine)

Car stalls out while stopped for a red light and

hi, the problem your having sounds like its something to do with the fuel, the first thing to try would be by buying a fuel additive that you pour into the tank you can buy this from most petrol stations just make sure you buy the correct type ie petrol or diesel then follow the instructions on the bottle.

You will then need to give the car a good run doing this should solve your problme but make sure you give it a good run as it takes a while to run through the whole fuel system ok.

If after doing this you are still having problems then i would give the car a full service replace all filters, plugs etc to ensure their is no muck causing any problems.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2001 aurora delay start 15 sec but and stalling while dirving

When I am asked for advice regarding similar concerns, I always ask the owner to check the wiring and the terminals since it is the cheapest fix. You can also check the ignition coil if it is ok.

Could be the idle air control valve, I have a 1993 Honda Civic Si, they cost about 200 on that to replace.

Driving down the road and staled

Is the car diesel or petrol?

If a diesel, you might check the diesel pump drive belt (at the right side of engine when looking at the engine from front of car). It's possible the teeth on the belt have stripped and put the pump timing out. An alternative may be a "stop solenoid" failure. The solenoid stops diesel getting to the injectors when the "ignition" is turned off and "stalls" the engine.

I don't know if the injector pump on a petrol engine has a similar setup as a diesel but it might be worth checking.

Where is the fuel filter on a Saturn Vue 2004?

It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.

Car petrol engine revolution surges.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, 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.
