I have a 2004 Stratus. We just recently changed the thermostat in it and when we went to start it back up it would start and then die. No CEL has come on so its not throwing a code for us to know whats wrong with it. It would run when we unplugged the MAF sensor but as soon as we plugged it in it would die. After cleaning the MAF sensor and messing around with all of that it was fine. Now it seems to be idling under 1 when we come t a stop and sometimes will die. anybody know what this could be?

My 88 chevy truck 350 idles high whats wrong with it i replaced the temp sensor that should have fixed it
You will need to restore some of the vacuum lines. The information about the coolant sensor is correct. I usually work on Ford family brands, but in general, some vehicles have 2 coolant sensors. One is for the engine controls and the other works ... Chevrolet 1500

I HAVE A 2000 CHEVY TAHOE WITH 150K MILES. DEVELOPED A SMALL OIL LEAK. TOOK IT TO A REPAIR SHOP AND THEY RECOMMENDED TO CHANGE THE OIL PAN GASKET. wHILE THEY HAD IT THEY DISCOVERED A SMALL OIL LEAK FROM THE REAR MAIN. i HAD THEM REPAIR BOTH LEAKS. wHEN THE TRUCK WAS DELIVERED BACK TO ME WE NOTICED THAT THE OIL PRESURRE WAS 0 TO 20 PSI AT IDLE. i TOOK IT BACK TO THE REAIR SHOP SAME DAY, AND I WAS TOLD THAT THEY PUT THE WRONG WGT OIL IN IT, AND THE IDLE WAS TO LOW. THE IDLE HAS BEEN AT 600RPMS FOR
First they should never of put 50 wt in the car. They obviously put the pickup for the oil on wrong which is in the pan,, if the car had not had oil pressure issues to begin with. I really think they owe you a motor if it is seized. I hope all this ... 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe
Idle 92 tercel won't idle , but when the engine temp. meter reaches to Half it would idle good.. whats wrong with my car?
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like ... 1992 Toyota Tercel
I have a 1995 Mustang that idles at 1.5 rpm and is slow to return to idle speed after a stop. I unpluged the electrical connector on the IAC valve and it made the car run at idle speed. Does this mean that my IAC needs to be replaced or could it be something else wrong?
Sounds pretty likely to be the iac. there should be a test for that - find it in the chiltons or haynes repair manual for your year, make model car - books found at yoru local auto parts store or local library - call ahead to be sure it is in stock ... 1995 Ford Mustang

It really sounds like you may have a misfire. Is this the model with the coil at the top of the valve cover with 4 wires going off to their prospective locations? If so, check your wires and look for white tracking marks indicating an insulation leak ... Eagle Talon

1988 BMW 325SI SPEEDOMETER ISNT WORKING OR CALCULATING MILEAGE WHATS AN EASY WAY TO SEE WHATS WRONG ITS NOT A FUSE. COULD IT BE THE SENDING UNIT?
There is a sending unit located in the differential. Sometimes the wires break. You'll need to get under the car, find the sensor and make sure the cables are attached and sound. If they are, then it's probably a faulty sensor. ... 1988 BMW 3 Series

99 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 v8 oil pressure drops from 40 at idle to 0 when given rpms. Will come right back to 40 when you let idle again. I have removed pan and checked screen. It was clean. Original sending unit was leaking so I replaced. Still thew same. I hooked up aftermarket gauge and pressure never goes below 40 no matter what. Hook back up sender and it acts up again. Don't think 2 senders would be bad. Could it be oil in plug in missing up current?
Oil gauge may be bad, you said you changed the oil sending unit, and tried a aftermarket which worked, so the other option is to have you oil gauge checked. The sending unit may be good but you gauge is not reading proper. ... 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I HAVE A 2003 SATURN ION. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON. I HAD THE CAR HOOKED UP TO AN ANALYZER AND IT COMES UP WITH A MAP SENSOR CODE. I REPLACED THE MAP SENSOR AND THE PROBLEM DID NOT GO AWAY. THE CAR, AFTER DRIVEN FOR ABOUT 15 MILES ON THE X-WAY, IDLES AT 1800 RPMS UNTIL I TURN THE CAR OFF. WHEN I START THE CAR, WITHIN A FEW SECONDS, IT IDLES FINE. I TOOK IT TO A GARAGE AND WITH THEIR ANALYZER THEY COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG OTHER THAN IT LOOKED LIKE THE COOLANT TEMP SENSOR WAS READING

My truck will start with a jump but will shut off. battery checked ok,alternator checked ok.plenty of gas. runs at high idle shutsoff at low idle. whats wrong?
If the battery is ok why do you need to jump anyway? most likely its not ok, the alternator do not provide enough power at idle to supply the engine the amount of power needed to keep it running,below 1200rpm you actually use the battery, in the ran ... 1996 Dodge Dakota
