Question about 2003 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

Our 2003 Chevy Tracker stalls after 20 minutes whether it is in Idle or not. I have cleaned the Idle Control Valve and replaced the fuel pump. No code is coming up and no lights on the dash come up prior to the stall. From what I understand I should be getting a P340 or P341(?) for the Cam Position Sensor. My son poured water on the Idle Control Valve and it started up immediately. Makes no sense. What is your opinon.

Not sure why you are thinking camshaft position... I am thinking maybe a relay is giving up. Did you check for fuel pressure and spark after the stall?

SOURCE: 1999 Chevrolet Tracker low idle problem when cold

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) 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.

Check your fuel pump presure. Pump is in the tank. Also try and loosen the fuel cap, the tank vent may be stopped up.

Check your IAC motor (Idle Air Control) It could be sticking open.
Ps. Might be called Idle Speed Control motor it depends on the make and i forget what chevy calls theres.

I'd replace the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure.

1989 chevy cavalier z24 strats but stalls rapidly


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. 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

1999 Chevy Malibu. Whenever I stop the car stalls. It can't just idle, I have to push on the gas pedal all the time, or it quits running. Fuel pump is ok. Fuel filter ok. Fuel injectors ok. Timing...


buy a can of spray carb cleaner and clean your throttle plate, pcv valve, and most importantly your idle air control valve. This device controls your idle speed. Check for vacuum leaks, you may have a crack in a vacuum hose.

My daughter's 2003 Mazda Tribute sometimes won't stay running. It will start but when you take your foot off the gas it stalls. She's had it towed home and then it starts right up!


if when running it runs well apart from idle problem i would suggest you have the throttle body and idle speed control valve cleaned out and add a fuel system cleaner to fuel tank also check wireing to idle speed control valve
