Pull up to stop sign motor stalls, starts back up, seems like it don't idle properly

1 Answer


What year model? Sounds like it could be a dirty/faulty idle air control valve and/or a dirty throttle plate. But without knowing what year model you have I can't check to make sure that your model has one. Also could be a vacuum leak. But if yours does have an idle air control valve that's what I would check into first. Hope this helps
