This is caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control system, foolow the p[rocedure below to correct the issue.
I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, 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

Will the oil sensor switch shut the engine down


Well, yes and no.
If the red oil pressure light comes on, yes the engine could stop running. You could actually lose oil pressure, or the switch could fail.
A "change oil" notice would not cause the engine to stop.

Does it shut off or stall when you slow down. It makes a major difference in trying to diagnose the problem.

What causes a 1995 chevy blazer 4x4 4.3 die when u come to a dead stop ?


Try doing the following.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

I have a 1994 Toyota Corolla that im having idling issues with. When Im driving if I come to a complete stop at a stop sign or red light the car would idle down to shutting off. I ran the engine codes and...


The AC solenoid isn't working. When you turn on the AC this solenoid on the throttle will kick the idle up a little to keep it from stalling when you let off the pedal.
