That is correct it could be the idle air control valve, before replacing it try to clean the throtle body and open the plate by having someone hold pedal down so you can clean area around the plate also, most times its a drity throtle, after cleaning and it stalls then replace the valve good luck and hope this helps.

My 99 explorer dies at a stop and starts right up.


Sounds like the idle air control solenoid is either sticking or is bad. It will let the motor die when at a stop very easily. You need to have the ecu scanned for a code to verify this first before doing anything else. I have even had a situation where a bad tank of gas also caused this, a fill-up cured it right away. Hope any of this helps you.

2000 Camry Starts but dies down right away


Hello

I just worked on this problem a couple of days ago. If the motor is a 3.0 liter. The idle control valve is located at the bottom of the throttlebody assembly right below the bore for the throttle butterflies..What usually causes this valve to go bad is the mechanical part of the sensor sticks as it becomes sludged or carboned up. Manufacturer claims that the valve cannot be cleaned and should only be replaced....It's a high dollar repair to replace this sensor as your engine coolant flows through this electrical valve. The valve idles the car fast when cold, as the antifreeze gets hot the valve drops the idle down.....I have successfully cleaned several of these valves and cured the dying problems...
First remove the air filter top cover and the tubes that connect to the throttlebody. In the right throttlebody you will see a port right before the butterfly. Under the throttlebody you have a black plastic sensor with a 2 wire terminal. Remove the 2 phillps screws and pull off the electrical part of the valve. you will feel a magnetic pull while removing. Remove slowly and catch the black sealing oring, and there will be a metal washer also.. The shaft that is exposed is the mechanical control of the valve. Rotate the shaft and it should feel sticky if bad..Using a throttlebody spray cleaner spray into the small square port of the right bore, rotate shaft and spray until stickfree.....Reassemble

replace the battery, on a dodge when battery is weak the idle air control solenoid tries to search for the right position. and will keep stalling sometimes wont stay running.
