Answers :

Start the engine cold and as it warms up, pull the vacuum hose off the EGR valve and see if it keeps running. If it does, replace the EGR valve. The reason the lights are all coming on and the gauges go to zero is because the engine dies and when it starts they return to normal. The EGR valve can stay stuck closed from carbon deposits which is fine for the warm up mode but it needs to open when the engine is warm or it will choke it out. This is not unusual and you will need to replace it. Look on the internet for your make and model an image of your EGR valve it will be easier than explaining it to you. They are in most cases on or connected to the intake manifold or intake plenum.*** Please rate me on this answer.***

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L. About a couple of months ago, my dad did a tune-up on it: changed the spark plugs, the O2 sensors, and the fuel filter. However, recently my car has started to stall. For example, I was driving, and was about to turn onto another street. In the middle of the intersection, my car "shut off". The engine died because the gages all went down to 0, the power steering went out and the brakes were hard to push, but all the electricity was on like the radio

Stalling problems with my 1986 Grand Marquis. It has been having problems accelerating right away after I'm at a stop and it almost feels like it's jumping into gear. It stalled out for the first time, started back up fine. Made it down the block and stalled again when I turned. I parked it and put it in neutral and revved the engine up and it sounded fine. Put it in reverse and it stalled when I was reversing. I kept trying to start it up to get a few blocks home to my house. But each t

I have a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that stalls when slowing down, turning slowly or stopped at a light. Just before it stalls I notice the battery meter drops significantly. The battery is good and the cables are tight. I have had it tested for vacuum leaks.

After replacing the Idle air control valve it stalls less often, but still sta

Car stalling Mine started at that same point. Run fine when it was cold and then stall when it got to temp. Now it stalls even when it is cold.

Stalling issues I have a '95 Grand Prix 3.1L Recently it started sputtering when coming to a stop. I replaced the PCV valve and hose as they severely needed to be. That worked for about 3 miles and then the problem started back up. Sometimes it will run for twenty miles without stalling, sometimes it will stall at every stop. Once even on the highway. I have heard it may be a choke problem or could be the fuel filter / pump. I dont have a lot of money and cant afford to try everything. Any help

Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0 litre petrol. Starts from cold (stood overnight). Twelve minute drive to work - slowing down at lights etc engine stalls constantly. No problem re-starting. Pull into a layby and wait for only around ten minutes. Starts no problem, and the stalling fault goes away.


Same problem for me. The car would idle at about 2500 when started from cold and about 3 miles on would not idle at all, resulting in the revs dropping off when changing gear or stopping. Also rather jerky in top gear unless thrashed - numerous trips ... Suzuki Vitara
