Silverado stalling at stop and in reverse.

Asked by May 26, 2016 at 04:06 PM about the Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1993 Silverado 1500. It's just
over 100,000 miles. Recently it's been
stalling when I'm idling at a stop light or
sometimes if I put it in reverse. It only
happens when the engine warms up, not
when it's cold. I can go a few miles
without it stalling at idle but as soon as it
warms up it begins. After it warms up I
have to put it in park and rev the engine
then quickly put it in drive when the traffic
light changes so I it doesn't die out. It's a
hassle but I hesitate to take it to the shop
becaude I don't want them to cheat me,
I've had some bad experiences with
mechanics sabotaging my other car. At
least it's running. It's been a great truck
and never given me any problems just the
usual maintenance upkeep. Any ideas
would be very much appreciated. Thanks

Sounds like you need a new idle air control valve/ solenoid. It's a pretty simple fix. Good luck

if that doesn't fix it, then you will need to change your EGR valve... make sure you buy the unit for your vehicle make model and year.
