Common faults for stalling on 1.6 zetec engine are the idle speed valve/ or the throttle position sensor. The engine could also be sucking in air from a split hose or failed inlet manifold gasket.

Turn up your idle a bit, check for vaccum leaks.

Dies when foot off gas


I would get another opinion on the alternator. There are tests that I am sure that autozone did not and cannot run. One is a load test, This would indicate if the battery is getting any electricity from the alternator under loadm diodes in the alternator could be failing. There is no way to adjust the RPM. IT should be around 800 on an automatic tranny in drive.

From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out


Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.

Car dies when gas is pressed.


I suspect the throttle position sensor, does the engine keep running if you take your foot off the gas before it dies? Like you can keep stabbing at the pedal and make the engine barely run but keep going so long as you take your foot off at the right time, if so it's the throttle position sensor not working AT ALL... (TPS) - http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php?catalog=903&partnum=5S5050&a=UK903-5S5050 this is the part, its on the throttle body, you can check the cabling first make sure it's not just come loose (unplug and replug a few times and try the engine again)- If no difference then buy the part and fit it, one out one in. and I'd look for a cheaper price (around $40) this is just to show you what to look for on the throttle body.
