You need to Clean the throttle body bore and the throttle valve plate using a clean shop towel and some carb cleaner. The DTC P0128 is Engine Coolant below the minimum thermostat regulating temperature. You need to replace the thermostat, it comes as an outlet housing assembly. You will have to remove the alternator to gain access to this housing.

2000 gmc savanna, Van starts up fine but when I get to a stop it will stall sometimes and the other times it will act like it wants to stall when I give it gas, runs great when it gets going

The first thing you need to do here is have the computer control system scanned for fault codes and an have a engine running test done to see what is going on in the automatic idle speed control system.

2001 altima stalls at intersection or when AC is running and car is hot

No to the high octane gas. Regular gas is fine. Higher octane gas is more resistant to ignition and is better suited for high compression engines to prevent preignition and detonation. Check or replace your idle air control valve since the car stall at idle when the throttle blade is closed. If the IAC is not working it won't allow for air to bypass the throttle plate. Also have your throttle body cleaned.

04 trailblazer ran out of gas now it has misfire and both pcm and ecm codes. i changed plugs an 3 coils buth it didnt fix it.any suggestions

by running out of fuel there is damage done to the little plastic gears in the fuel pump. I would say that the misfires are now the result of insufficient fuel supply and pressure to run the injectors. IT would also account for why there is insufficient power to run the ac compressor

2008 Pt Cruiser stalls randomly, usually starts right back up. No trouble codes, not overheating, replaced fuel pump. It just acts like it's run out of gas (no, it's not out of gas either). I pull...

I suppose you have done the obvious things like clean the battery terminals and make sure they are tight. Check the alternator for output as an intermittent low charge rate will upset the cpu performance. Check the connector for the fuel pump as the wire may be loose and causing a problem in the fuel pump. Is the idle rpm around 900 or a lot slower say 600rpm. Try writing down all the things going on when it happens. slope.- hot day-lights on-noises foot on brake- ac on. For example if the idle speed is low and the ac compressor cuts in then the engine will stall. If the battery has a failing cell and the lights are on then there may not be enough power from the alternator at low idle to supply all the power needed to run the cpu. Think of all that is going on and there will emerge a common area that will point to the fault.

Truck won't start when hot

Check fuel pressure with a gauge

Sounds like the pump is going bad & stops
mechanically or electrically

You don't need codes to have cylinder misfires,bad

Try disconnecting the battery (both terminals and let set for a few hours) with ALL the accessorries on lights-heater-radio etc. This will draw all power from your system, then recconnect battery, it's worth a try even if it doesn't solve your problem. Bill
