    My 2004 Chrysler Sebring is doing the same thing. My check engine light keeps going on and off every few days and lately I have felt the car jerking while driving. The other day my check oil light came on and my car stopped while i was waiting for another car to come out of a parking space. Any suggestions what may be wrong?

Car dies when coming off acceleration or at idle in traffic or at a stop. I can watch the Tach go to 0 RPM, some times it will restart immediately other times it is hard to start, so far I have always been able to re-start it and Drive on. Does anybody have verified fix for this issue, I have seen posts saying can and crank sensor, throttle body, EGR, and many more ideas... Do not really want to just start replacing parts with the hope that I eventually get a fix. Help...

1988 camaro issues running


There are many things that could cause this problem,a misfiring cylinder ,low compression or idle speed not adjusted right,
Is this car fuel injected or does it have a carburetor?
if the timing is off, or the main problems i have seen are in the carburetor. does this car have an o2 sensor? a bad o2 can cause a bad fuel mixture and make engine load up at low idle speeds.
this car is a 1988 Camaro, what size engine , automatic or stick and is it carb or injection fuel?

Replaced water pump and timing belt on my '95 Plymouth Neon with 154,000 miles. Starts right up (warm or cold) but has a very lumpy idle and dies when I stop at a traffic light. It starts right away...


Welcome to Fixya

You might need to have a good tune-up with your car. Did you notice the needle of the RPM going up and down? The normal idle RPM is 600 to 800.

Thank you for using Fixya!

How can i minimize the fuel consumption of my jeep 2000 cherouki laredo 6 cylinders ?


There are several things you can do. Make sure the engine is in good tune, replace the air filter, Air the tires up to 34 pounds air pressure to lessen the rolling resistance, How you drive is most important. Take off from traffic light and stop signs slowly. accelerate steady, don't be in a hurry to reach cruising speed, unless, of course, you are merging with fast traffic. Anticipate stops. Start slowing down sooner when coming to a stop sign or traffic signal. Coast on the downhill streets, and use the cruise control as much as possible. Don't waste gas warming up your vehicle in cold weather. It will warm up quickly while you are driving. Any time spent idling is zero miles per gallon.

I have a Chevrolet silverado 2000 V6, 4.3L The engine is start right away if i turn the key to start. At park (P) position or drive (D) position the engine try to stop if I press the paddle to accelerate,...


Does the engine accerlerate in neutral? Or does it die at higher speed in neutral??? If so you may have a plugged up exhaust system. Try disconnecting or loosneing up the flange before the catalic converter and then see if it runs normal.

Automatic vehicle stalls at low rpm


This is proplem with the IAC valve , try clean the valve and if that doesnt work replace it.

An IAC (idle air control) motor is designed to adjust the engine idle RPM speed by opening and closing an air bypass passage inside the throttle body

Car dying when letting off gas


Sounds like it's your IAC (idel air control sensor).  The IAC is a computer-controlled air bypass valve located in the throttle body. It helps control idle speeds by allowing air to bypass the throttle plates as to increase the idle speed.  If the IAC isn't working properly the car will stall when you are not pressing the gas pedal.  It is located on your throttle body and is relatively cheap and a simple change since it is normally held in my two screws.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest ranking and for using FixYa!

Dies when idling, does better with a/c on, but still dies


this is your problem:

Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low 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

My car threatens to die during idling...the rpm drops down low and then goes back to normal. It started doing this during driving too. I just had the fuel filter and a few other fuel related things...
