Try some general maintenance things first. Check and replace air filter if necessary, clean throttle with throttle body cleaner, add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank and change fuel filter.


Already did all of your suggestions.....still having problems as stated.....anymore ideas?


Does it die at red lights? Has it died on you today?


If it is the first time I drive it, no it does not die at red lights...if I had been somewhere that I had to shut it off, then restart, then yes sometimes it dies at the lights....Haven't driven it today as of yet
