Re: Engine stall issue
Thanks, AkDale, some interesting information you shared there. From reading the information, it seems like there might be some way to clean the IACV? I'm looking for your impression -- or perhaps others' impressions based upon first-hand experience -- since it is cheaper to clean than replace. It seems like some other parts of this motor also get sooted up. My EGR valve comes to mind, for example, and that does trip the service engine light on mine, but only when it's cold outside. The vehicle has about 80,000 miles on it, gets 26mpg on the highway, and otherwise runs great.
Anyone care to venture a potential cure? If someone searches back far enough, I think I asked about this more than a year ago. So far, I also replaced the fuel filter, ran numerous fuel system cleaners through the system and checked all the vacuum lines. I haven't futzed with the TPS because, I guess, if I haven't tinkered with it, then there shouldn't be anything wrong with it .... am I totally off-base on that?
