check for vaccuum leaks.. try spraying brake cleaner around the lines and see if it changes anything with the idle spped.. if it sucks in some it will chug while you spray it.. That helps locate a leak..

1994 Oldsmobile Bravada dies at stoplights, just changed fuel pump/filter and egr valve.Appriciate any help. thanks

check for vacuum leaks. You can do this with a can of carb spray but please be careful as it is flammable! if the ignition wires are leaking and you hit them with carb spray you will start the engine on fire!

The safer alternative is to have the engine "smoked" for vacuum leaks. This is done with a smoker. Any place that is leaking you will see smoke.

A trained ear will also be able to hear a leak.

If no leaks are found try unplugging the MAF sensor. Is is in the air tube next to the air filter box. If performance improves try cleaning it with some MAF sensor cleaner. If that doesn't work than you may need to replace it.

sounds like the a/c is low of freon if the compressor is cycling that often due to low pressure. the idling problem sounds like a bad idle control valve. is the check engine light on? if it is and a p0171 code(system too lean) is present you should check for vacuum leaks.

Truck idles high, does not run rough, idle adjust screw is bottomed out still seems to idle high, does this hot and cold.

I would check for a broken vaccuum hose . A vaccuum leak will raise the idle considerablly.

Our 2006 chevy aveo turns over then dies when put in gear. Also, the cigarrette lighter and overhead light have quit working.

Idle speed is probably set too low. The computer should adjust this speed, so have engine codes run to ferret out any problems with sensors, etc. But first do this test: Crank car, let it idle. Raise hood, and move the big tube that goes to the throttle body a little. If the engine dies, you might have a tube that has developed a leak. Check all hoses for vaccuum leaks.
As for the lighter and overhead light, these are often wired to the same fuse. Check your fuses, Then check the wiring. Good luck with that!! Wiring problems can be a real dog to solve. With any luck, it's just a fuse.

You didn't call off the code they found but O2 sensers effect a lot of driving but not the idle. High or low fuel pressure a vacume leak an air bypass motor stuck shut or bad. are more likly . The auto zone guys are great but their not mechanics. Their story is change parts till you fix it and they want to sell as many parts that you'll buy

your car needs a 'complete tuneup'. clean the EGR port, remove the throttle body and clean - don't just spray, its not enough, remove all vacuum hoses and clean and brush all ports that are connected to the plenum, remove anyports that are connected to the plenum and clean them also, remove the plenum and brush and clean the ******. if you have time, take out the intake manifold and clean also....and that should do it.

Cabin temperature issue

The car could be low on coolant. I would check that first and if its full then explore a vacuum leak.
