    I'm having the same problem. Car restarts easily, however often will die again as soon as I press the gas pedal. If the engine starts to die while driving with the accellerator pressed, putting it in neutral often instantly brings the engine back to life. Had the fuel system and throttle serviced and if anything it got worse. Plugs look fine.

VEHICLE RUNS FINE BUT AFTER DRIVING FOR 20 MINS OR MORE, WHEN I CONE TO A STOP IT SURGES FOR A MINUTE AND THEN STALLS OUT. RESTARTS WITH NO PROBLEM AND IT ACTS LIKE A IAC VALVE PROBLEM.


Make sure the throttle plate is clean and free of carbon and retry test. Sounds like your electric throttle is starting to malfunction.

Check the TPS Sensor on throttle body (throttle position)

Also the Air Idle Control Solenoid at the base
of throttle body, on side

Spark plugs strangely make a difference on the dakota,
clean rotor & cap

There is no timing adjustment

Never move your distributor,it is for
injector timing

My vw passat (an automatic) stalls when I have to come to a stop a lights, or even sometimes when I have to slow right down to an 'almost' stop - any ideas what the problem might be ????


Probably the IAC which control the idle but usually you will see some erratic idling as well. Pretty sure something to do with the control of idle and fuel. Maybe you need to clean throttle body and raise idle some might help. Have IAC checked.

1996 Grand Cherokee intermitant stalling . Occurs while stopped at a traffic light and sometimes while driving along. If moving fast enough it does recover and start running again. It also restarts ok...


I would clean the throttle body before spending more money on finding a solution. Carbon build can cause stalling or idling issues at low speeds.
So cleaning it is pretty easy and cheap. You can use an old toothbrush and dip it in some gas or use aerosol throttle body cleaner. When you've loosened up the buildup just wipe it off with a rag that doesnt rip easily.
You can get to the throttle body by disconnecting the intake tube that starts from the air filter.

The throttle sticks during the warmer months


The throttle body is located on the driver side of the engine compartment.
If throttle plate has not been clean you might want to get a can of carburetor cleaner, remove the inlet snorkel hose and clean around and behind the throttle plate.
The IAC (idle air control) motor may need to be cleaned. The IAC controls your idle rpm.
Good luck, let me know.

Stalling


Do this.
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 idles low, stalls after start


Common issue at the shop (i'm a ford technician), here is what I do to correct it.

Rough idle and shutting off at stop lights Stalls at stop light and has a rough idle at take off.


I would check the IAC or idle air control valve located in the throttle body of the engine. It looks like a big nut with black plastic in center and a wire on it. They get gummed up with carbon and become erratic remove and spray with carb cleaner. hope this helps please rate me
