    My 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII won't idle. It ran fine until my water pump went out. After I replaced it, I turned over the engine and it wouldn't idle. Also, it makes a weird noise when I rev it to under 2500 rpm.

I have a 1998 hyundai coupe 1599cc the engine cuts out when idling and i have to jump start it or wait for about half an hour before it will start again


This sounds like a battery or alternator problem.

Lets start with the battery, just because the car starts in the morning does not mean the battery is good, A bad battery will start the car and as car is running and drawing power out of the battery the battery which is getting charged back up from the alternator but if battery is bad and not accepting the charge this will do a few things.
First it will cause damage to the alternator because , the alternator will try to charge the battery with no result and so it keeps charging at high rates and heats up and causes damage to itself , the next thing is battery loses voltage slowly until it does not have enough voltage to keep engine going , inturn engine stalls out,
I would start by first having the battery tested by a shop with a battery tester, the next thing is the alternator , have that tested.

Your problem will be a bad alternator or battery. good day.

BOUGHT BRAND NEW BATTERY NOW CAR CUTS OFF AND IDLES REALLY LOW


WHEN YOU DISCONNECT THE BATTERY THE ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS PCM LOSES IT MEMORY INCLUDING ENGINE IDLING.THE COMPUTER WILL HAVE TO RELEARN THE OPERATING VALUES. IF CAR DOES A LOT OF STALLING AT STOP LIGHTS AND STOP SIGNS. GO BY FORD DEALERSHIP LET THEM REPROGRAM THE PCM.PROBABLY CHARGE YOU $35.00 DOLLARS. TO REPROGRAM PCM.

Trouble with my rpms


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, 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.

Car won't start without a jumb start


Test the battery, if it is ok replace the starter solenoid, they click when the contacts get burnt in them and won't connect to engage the starter.
