You are probably having problem with your Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). It can rev your motor up to the point where you are driving down the road at 40-50 MPH with out touching the gas pedal. Fortunately, unlike that other brand,you can use your brakes to slow back down. If the new part is too expensive($435 on the 2003 Lancer) you should be able pick a good one up at the salvage yard cheap. The IACV for most cars new sells for $25 to $50.

Why does my 2009 Sedona Kia loose power when I slow down or stop at a corner or traffic light?


It could be the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is inappropriately kicking in. Another possibility is the throttle position sensor. In any case, have it checked out soon so you don't ending up stopping with traffic behind/across that isn't going to stop!

1990 Mitsubishi Galant - Engine Troubles


The first step is to borrow a scan tool to read what the error engine code that resulted in a check engine light.

Look the code up particularly for your engine and you will most likely find the fault.

You can report this Check engine code on this website and get some ideas for repair.

If the car was driveable you could take it to your friendly auto parts store where many of the stores will read the code complementary.

Hope This Helps?

Sounds like the EGR valve is bad and is stuck in the open position.Just replace that and you should also check the catalytic converter.

Car stalls at traffic lights and stop signs


There is a plastic tube that goes between the PCV valve and the intake manifold. Inspect the rubber elbow ends of this tube very carefully, they deteriorate and cause a vacuum leak that causes stalling. Sometimes you can hear them hissing while the engine is running. This is a very common problem.
