Question about Subaru Legacy

When I first crank it up in the morning it runs good. After it has warmed up, it wants to die at an idle or won't crank back up unless I hold the gas pedal down.

Is this engine equipped with an EGR valve? Might have carbon deposits blocking the passageway causing the stalling problem.

P2285 code 6.0 litre ford deisel long cranking before starting after starts runs great but oil pressure gauge drops at idle


bad bearings on crank or worn oil pump. Pressure will be up when cold, but will drop when engine warms up. Check for knock in lower end. If so, bad crank bearings.

92 SL1 won't idle-wants to die without pushing gas-just put in new plugs


Remove, clean and inspect the idle control valve on the throttle body. These tend to clog up over time, or the stepper motor fails. Check this before anything else.

My 99 dodge durango wont stay cranked without holding down the gas and it only happends when it the motor is cool and after holding the gas down and reving the motor for about 10mins or more it will stay...


hey that sounds familiar!have you checked your idle control sensor? let me tell you 1st you crank it cold,you have to keep your foot on the gas pedal until it warms up.but then when you come up to red light quick stop,the engine dies or wants to stop? sometimes it starts fine? but when it does,after running for a few minutes,it idles up and down? when it's warm after driving 15miles or so,you shut it off and try a restart,and the engine starts,but idles up and down? all of the above are signs of a bad idle control sensor.the part costs about $20.00 u.s. 2bolts removal 1 PLUG IN REMOVAL you may be able to do it yourself.have an autozone or advance autoparts store employee show you where it's located.you would be shocked at how many great people there are left in the world! i'm answering your question for free at midnight from the u.s. think i'm bored? no. just love helping people like you! thank you so much!

Jeep 2002 grand cherokee dies unless i keep foot on the gas...


The idle relearn needs reset. Keep your foot on the gas at about 900 rpm. Make it idle for about 5-6 minutes. Slowly ease up on the gas until it will idle on it's own, it might take a while. After you get it to idle, it might be idling real low, but on its own, Let it sit and idle until for 20 minutes. After that it should be back to normal. You will have to do this every time you have the battery unhooked for a while.

Idle is rough


it sounds like you have a vaccume leak , check all hoses that run to the throttlebody for cracks or holes, if you are losing vaccume than your car will run erratically , good luck.
