car wont idle

Asked by Sep 19, 2015 at 05:00 PM about the 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car ran fine, battery died (grdchild left light on), next day installed a new
battery and it started up great.  But when I took my foot of gas the engine took
a noise dive and died.  Retried several times and without the gas pedal
depressed, it dies.  Whats up?

Sounds like either the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve is stuck shut or the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve is stuck open. HTH. -Jim
