Hey there I was drivin my bro's 5th gen and suddenly the engine shuts off at idle...I have a 4th gen and never had this problem before...i don't think it's the starter but maybe the ignition harness? I have no idea so any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
Does this happen idle in drive, or in park? My 2000 used to die when it was in park and neutral. I replaced the IACV and never had the prob. again. I also heard that you can just clean the IACV, but i repl. instead. Might want to take a look at that if it dies in park. Mine never died in drive.
thanx for da replies...it actually cranks up fine...then when i drive it's fine. but when i'm at a signal whether i'm in drive, neutral, or park, it just shuts off. very strange. I think it's a problem with the idle or something but i guess i'll try the maf or da coils. but i think the maf and coils make the car shutter and then die, but mine just dies silently. I don't even know it died until i gas it and the car doesn't move! any more input would be great!!! i'm sick of my car just dying!
