A discharged battery should be recharged with an external battery charger--about 2 to 3 hours with a high-current (10 to 30 amps) charger, overnight with a low-current charger (2-4 amps). Check the battery voltage after charging and the engine running--it should read about 13.5 volts if the the alternator is working. It will read 12.6 or less volts if the alternator is bad, or the fuse link is blown in the wire that runs from the alternator output to the starter solenoid connection where the positive battery cable is connected. Once the battery is charged, take the car to Autozone or similar business that will provide a free check of the battery and charging system if you don't have access to a voltmeter. Hope this helps!

2002 gmc envoy stalls when turning and slowing down


I am going to assume the check engine light is not on.
I would check the throttle body to see if it needs to be cleaned, and check the idle air control valve to see if it is working. The computer controls idle speed by the amount of air coming into the throttle body.
The ac problem is probably something different such as low freon or a cooling fan problem.

Just had the water pump timing belt and tension wheel replaced...now it stalls and dies when trying to stop or slowing down to turn...it will roughly idle in park...if it dies it starts right back


sounds like the timing is one(maybe two) teeth out of time on the timing belt. the computer is trying to advance or ****** the timing to compensate for the misaligned camshaft spockets.

Often times when I turn the wheel all the way weather left or right. and weather in forward or in reverse doesn't matter the truck kills. its a 2001 dodge dakota automatic.


on most power steering pumps there is a single wire idle up switch to compensate for load caused by pump switch is on pump check connection also try to find a clear parking lot drive in slow circle steer all the way see if engine dies while moving at slow speed will use less effort if engine doesnt die then check the p/s idle up switch

The truck stays on as long as i'm driving but whn i come to a stop or slow down it dies and i have to restart it. I thought maybe the alternator, would that be right? Also the lights start on the dash fade...


My truck is manual and is idling rough at low rpms, it kinda surges and rpm starts to drop like between 500 and 900 rpm as well.

I have trouble starting it and stalls on me.

I have changed the alternator, starter, battery, battery cables, rotor, distributor cap, spark plug wires, spark plugs.


As for the dash light going out, mine does that too but on the left side (gas gauge side), I just usually apply a firm tap on the left side of the black part of the panel and it turns on.

idle is set at factory but if the idle air control valve is bad it won't idle right also if the throttle position sensor is not working right it won't idle right a diagnostic scan should be able to determine which one is needed.

Truck dies when i stop or slow down


this may be the cause, try it and see if it helps, it is a very common cause of problems like yours.
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.

Idle Problem when you slow down of come to a stop idle goes low


THis has happened to me in the past. My fix was to clean the throttle body. The problem began after my battery died. The computer was defaulted back to its original settings after replacing the battery. Once I cleaned the throttle body, everything was fine. This happened at about 85,000 miles.

Engine kills when engine warm


You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
