Engine stalls


It could be your throttle position sensor. I had the opposite problem, idle was to high, changed sensor and problem was fixed.

Have an automatic transmission, 2001 Kio Rio. Problems when idling, sometimes high, sometimes low and will stall but starts right back up. I've replaced the Mass Air Sensor, spark plugs, air filter, coil....


It sounds to me like you have replaced everything except the most likely cause of your idle control problem...The Idle Air control. (IAC) (or Idle Speed Control Valve) It is located onthe throttle body and looks like the picture below.

Car stalls once put in gear


Most common causes for this is the MAP sensor and/or the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). The MAP handles the air flow and the TPS controls the throttle speed under cold and hot conditions. Your car is either not idling fast enough or there's an issue with the air flow causing it to stall when RPMS's are low.

Idled high, replace IAC and PCV, now idles low and stalls


On modern day cars the parts that get fitted need to be adapted to the ECM using a decent diagnostic machine. I bet that this was not done and the car is now suffering as a result.
Something to try is resetting the ECU, simply disconnect battery for 10 minutes, reconnect, then start car from cold *without touching gas pedal* and leave idling until the rad fan comes on (this resets all the base idle settings) then take it for a drive - hopefully will solve the problem

Stalls at idle no fluxuation in voltage at iac


It is most likely the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.
The valve is supposed to close when the car is idling and open other wise.

Inspect it / Replace it.

Hope this helps!
