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?

1 Answer


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