Hi,That code is for an IAC. Without a scan tool or something to manually \015\012drive it, you won't be able to confirm the problem is the IAC itself. \015\012Your best hope is to just take a shot and change it. See what you have \015\012 ... 1991 Pontiac Firebird
My 1988 Buick Lesabre Limited just began to have a hard time idoling. It seems like it just started as the weather got cold. It runs fine on the Highways but wants to stall and sometimes does when the car is at low RPMs. The check engine light did come one but I have not been able to take it anywheres to get the codes. The car has 69,000 miles on it. We bought the car from an older couple which I believe stopped driving the car on the highway a couple of years ago. Could it be a clogged EGR valv

1996 bmw z3 1.9. It stalls while driving and won't start again. None of the gages seem to be getting power after stall. The ignition switch will activate the wipers when trying to restart. The fuel pumps are not energized. I know the problem is fuel related due to no power at the fuel pumps but it works sometimes and not others. I can't pinpoint why or when it will happen again. My battery is old but turns the car over with no issues. I've swapped the two relays that relate to the fuel pump. My

1984 reliant. The car runs fine, but it stalls at stops sometimes, and after driving for a couple hours. It runs a really high idle, and when i shut it off in park the engine rumbles and seems to want to start again, but if i shut it off in drive it's fine. I'm thinking its a throttle position sensor, but i don't know, i just bought it and i'm not familiar yet.
The stalling and stopping sounds like the FUEL FILTER. My 84 Reliant was doing the same thing to me. And as soon as i replaced that... The car ran perfect. ... 1984 Plymouth Reliant
My toyota 4runner 1997 Limited had trouble accelerating. It seemed fine. I turned the car off. Later turned it on and the car began to stall and rattle a bit. I put the car in drive and it was stalling really bad. Put the car in reverse and the same happened. While i was driving home the car started continued to stall but was somewhat mobile so i continued to drive. Just as I got home, the problem went away completely. I took the car to a mechanic and he couldnt duplicate the problem. We changed

The car stalls at random times. Sometimes while driving and sometimes when I've finished driving and I put it in park and it stalls before touching the key. I've read on other sites that the fuel pump is likely since the car does start up again right away and the dash board lights stay on when it stalls.

My 2001 Chevy Cavalier came up with a crankshaft position sensor code after stalling the other day. I bought the part from Auto Zone and had it installed by a mechanic. The signal went away and the car seemed to be driving good. After about a half hour the car began to stall again. It seems to run fine for short trips, but once the car is running for a longer period of time there are stall issues. One second the car is running just fine, and the next either the gas pedal stops responding al

My 1998 Ford Contour will either start or it wont, when it does start it does so just fine, but sometimes it wont prime (it wont make that short whirring sound before you start the engine) and wont start, it goes like it will start, but then doesnt. Also it seems to want to die at an idle when I let it sit for too long after I first start it. When I drive it it runs fine, doesnt putter, or stall or shut off. The problem is simply when I try to start my car. I had fuses checked everywhere, cable
You might want to change the fuel pump Relay. You seem to know when it is getting fuel and when it does not. It is a lot easier to change a Relay than misdiagnose a bad pump. There are several signals which combine to make all the terminals on the ... 1998 Ford Contour
I have a 1986 D-21 Nissan SE that would not idle properly it would idle from 700 to 1100 rpm, and when you drive it sometimes it runs good for awhile and then you come to a stop light and the truck stalls. It has new spark plugs, new wires, new cap, new injectors, I just cant figure this out, one thing I notice is when the car is idling rough from 700 to 1100 rpm it seems like it has a vacuum leak, when I spray carb. cleaner around the throttle body the rpm picks up right away, I changed all my

When coming to a stop, unless I throw it in Neutral, it stalls and cuts off. It loses power and everything goes off, sometimes even while I'm driving it. . The KIA Dealer had it on diagnostic all day and couldn't find anything wrong (they had it twice). I took the car over for a day and it happened to me this morning - it does not happen all the time though.. It just seems to lose power and everything shuts down when it happens. Please advise.... I need help....
There are several things that can happen intermittently that effect idle.But even intermittent things should register on the ODBCII codes, if the check engine light comes on.So you should have had them read the codes.Autozone will d ... 2001 Kia Spectra

Check Engine Light. I have a 03 escalade that came up with DTCs of P0101, P0131, P0137, P0151, P0157, P0171, P0174. My SUV sputters to the point of shutting off sometimes when you initially start the car and some hesitation when its in drive. Once it gets going its fine, although if I try to accelerate too fast it will stall or seem to lose power. I've changed the MAF sensor, the Throttle Body assembly w/TPS attached, Intake Gasket, Fuel Filter, and Spark Plugs also with a Fuel Pressure readin

Other times my car will stall, sputter, **** while driving and seems to not be getting gas. Even going 70 down the highway it will stall. When it stalls while driving the dash lights come on.This happens on a daily basis regardless of where it is driven street or highway. When the Service Engine light comes on after a stint of the sputtering, the car will not stall however, it will rpm high and then toss hard into a higher gear.

Buick century 1993 stalls while driving After driving for a while the car stalls out. It's dangerous because sometimes I'm on a highway. It starts immediately after that and goes a bit then stalls again. I've had the computer changed, a tune up and the crank sensor changed. When the crank sensor was changed the car drove beautifully for a few months but now the problem has recurred.
