Hey bud this should take care of your problen but you have to follow exactle and as I say it is very easy to do first you are going to remove your battery terminal and clean your trotle body also change the filters and after doing this you will have to run the truck for about an half hour just drive it around so the computer can reset the pcm and also let the truck know that it should keep trotle when idle i see this all the time so you should have no problem as long as you do this keep in mind this is not a hard job the throtle body is located to the left under the hood and is cover by a black cover just remove the screw and you are good to go start cleaning if you need more help just google it and you might be able to get direction with picture there

Idle goes up and down when aircon is on

This is pretty much normal as the AC engages and disengages. Though it should be subtle and not erratic. Is it causing your engine to stall? Does your AC work efficiently or is the air not real cold. It should output around 40 degrees. The compressor may be going out or it needs oil. When the AC turns on the car idle sensor should raise the idle so the AC does not drag the idle down too far. If you turn AC off and try pounding on the brake & turning the wheel violently at the same time (in park of course) if you still have an erratic idle it's not the compressor. It will probably be the IAC or a vacuum leak is suspect.

My 2000 Ford Expedition 5.4L V8 4x4 idles really bad when stopped at a red light. Sometimes it will just stall. It always starts back up. It goes just fine when I hit the gas, real smooth and powerful. It...

Check the idle fuel pressure. Load the electrical with headlights and heater defrost etc and see if problem gets worse. Attempt again with all accessories off. Could be fuel pump is getting low voltage at idle or fuel pump is failing. Bad fuel pump would definitely be a problem high fuel demand. Check vacuum line between pressure regulator to intake manifold.

Check for a air leak in the intake manifold. Gasket/hose etc. The P0171/P0174 is an indication that not enough fuel or tow much air. You can sometimes hear the air leak during idle.

Best solution is to use a graphic capable scan tool and watch the fueling trim/idle.

PLEASE HELP! hesitation, total power loss, rough idle, stalling

You need to find a mechanic that will actually scan your computer to see what each component of your engine and rest of your vehicle is doing, not just pull codes. There are sooo many things that could cause your issues...

I have a 2001 gmc savanna 2500 and it stalls out everytime I have to turn sharply.. The dealership said that they put it on the scope and its not pulling any codes

replace the idle air control valve. this usually will not set a code for this condition.
??? What happens when you put the AC on or turn the wheel in park. If the idle goes down instead of up a hair then back down to normal then I would suspect the IAC.

1990 Buick stalls when coming to a stop

Sounds like the torque converter clutch solenoid is bad. Unplug it and see if the problem stops. Unplug the 4 wire plug on the front of the transmission.

1995 Taurus Engine Stalls

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) 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.

2002 sequioa sudden stall

Often when the battery is disconnected or replaced the computer will lose it's learned idle settings. You could try letting the engine idle in park until the engine temperature comes up to normal and leave it like that for a few minutes, then put the Air con on and let it idle again for a few minutes, then switch the air con off and put it into drive. If it does not stall, let it idle in drive for 2 minutes or so, and then do the same with the Air con on. This should relearn the base idle settings and stop it from stalling on you. Before you carry out this procedure you should make sure that when you replaced the battery you didn't remove any other plugs or knocked anything that may be causing the fault. If you try this procedure and it still stall when you select drive, you will need to get a Mechanic to check the vehicle over.

Hope this helps,
