SOURCE: 2000 Alero idles low and dies when stopped.

How does it idle when you first start or idle when hot.
On the top of the air intake tube there is a small screw which should when screwed in speed up the idle and if it dosent work or it idles fine when cold or warm at idle then its your GEARs are binding up and there's not to much you can do about that ........sorry

SOURCE: rough idle then stalls

Vacume leak or bad idle motor. With the car in park and running with the hood open listen for leaks moving your hand around the different hoses looking for a change in the sounds that you hear. The idel motor also makes the car idel up to 1500 RPM or so right at start-up then idel down, If it doesn;t the idel motor is likly. Check engine light is on when running? Test for codes, Follow code test charts don't skip any steps!.

Car runs smooth, until I have to stop at red light or stop sign, then it runs rough. When I put it it neutral, it runs smooth. Could that be the EGR valve sticking? Any help would be appreciated, than


Depends on what you mean by rough. Could be a cylinder misfire.They sometimes are not noticed as engine speed increases during driving or under light load as when idling in neutral but at idle under load as when stopped at a light in drive became noticable.
Could also be running rich. The causes of either are too numurous to list.Consult a good mechanic who can actually see and hear the problem to put you on the right track.

Still Rough Idle After Battery Disconnect


The first thing to do is not set up the idle speed, but to set the Idle mixture screw to lean best idle setting. First, turn in the mixture screw until the engine dies or runs worse, then back out the screw (recommend turning ¼ to ½ turn at a time). The engine should pick up speed and begin to smooth out.

The battery has nothing to do with the idle speed

Replace all spark plugs and wires and coils and car still coding a #3 misfire detection car running like **** and acts like its going to die at stop lights, it has some power now but idles and shakes the...


Spray around the intake manifold with carb cleaner. If the engine smooths out or revs up, fix the leak. It sounds like a leaking intake manifold gasket.

Will not idle when you come to a stop. it will start back up and run.


Given this limited amount of information, my first thought is that your transmissions lock-up torque converter is not releasing.

It is an automatic transmission.......correct?

I need to know if the engine flat out dies as your vehicle stops... or does it spit and sputter... then die slowly????

If it dies very quickly just as your car is coming to rest:
There is a solenoid (electriclly actuated) valve inside the tranny pan. It is usually servicable without removing the transmission. It locks up your converter under certain conditions; and should release it when you apply the brakes and/or slow down.

If the lockup converter fails to release as you come to a stop, your engine will die abruptly.
This is either a malfunction of the lock-up solenoid or valve; or it could be a wiring issue.

VERY IMPORTANT: When restarted immediately after a stall, does it idle in gear smoothly?????

Is your "Service Engine Soon" light on?

Now if it is a slowwwww death, and does not idle smoothly immediately after a stall:
Then it is probably not related to your transmission at all; but rather the engine itself.

Areas to consider are :The fuel system (fuel pump, injectors, pressure regulator) vacuum hoses, ignition system (bad spark plugs, failed plug wires, weak ignition coils), or the emissions system (sensors etc).
Also, there is an IAC motor that controls the engine speed at idle.

That will require more data from you if possible.

Good Luck!!
