Lordan Posted October 2, 2006 Share Posted October 2, 2006 Hello, having an issue with the wifes 97. About 6 months ago she said that is she was out and about driving and stopped somewhere, then went to restart the car a few minutes later it would either start and stall immediately, or crank quite a bit then start. When I was able to repoduce this it seemed that if I put the pedal to the floor as I cranked it over it would start and I had to "feather" the gas to stop it from stalling. Then it would run fine. This weekend a new problem popped up ( which is probably related ). when she was coming to a stop or near stop ( like taking a turn onto a side street ) it would stall out. I tried to reproduce it but after and hour of running I couldn't so I took the car home and as I got near the house it did it and kept doing it so I just parked it. I found somewhere ( some forum that actually showed me to here ) that said the IAC was probably dirty and there was a way to clean it? Also she did fess - up that she had been running lower grade gas the past year to save us $$. Any thoughts? Many thanks in advace ! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
