Stalls after start up, Stalls when braking, then runs fine after a few minutes


Check the ECU engine temperature sensor. If it thinks the engine is hot, it will struggle to run when cold.

Try cleaning the throttle body around the butterfly. Gas carbon will build up in the throttle body and that will cause one to stall or not run good. I just use starting fluid and screw driver and rag, does a good job. Hope this fixes it, Mitchell.

The IAC; idle air control valve, controls idle speed. This may be gummed up or faulty. But first check for vaccum leaks. These can occur at hoses, fittings, oil cap, dip stick, gaskets. buy a can of spray carb cleaner and clean the butterfly valve and bore, IAC, and use the rest of the can to search for vacuum leaks; run the engine and give short squirts of carb cleaner to the items listed above. The engine idle speed will change when you spray on a leak.

Car idles low, stalls after start


Common issue at the shop (i'm a ford technician), here is what I do to correct it.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and 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.
