Hello,

I think your throttle cable is very low, that's why the car dies when it's not moving. When the throttle cable is low, then engine becomes very low and must die when the vehicle is idle.

Adjust the throttle cable by raising or increasing it from the engine. Make sure you don't raise it too high to avoid overheating and high gas/fuel consumption rate.

Or you can give it to your mechanic to raise it for you. It's very easy but technical. Your local mechanic shouldn't charge you a dine for this.

I hope the above makes sense to you.

Take care.

Check your engine idol. It could be that your idol speed is set to low. It should probably run at between 800 and 1000 RPM. If it is not then your idol is to low.

Oil light turns on at idol, and almost dies at idol has oil


Replace your fuel filter and airfilter. If this doesn't work - you may need a new coil pack or cap and rotor if it has a distributor; if this is the case, change the spark plugs and plug wires.
