General Maintenance & Repairs - car stalls when stopping
08-13-2012, 05:54 PM
Hey guys, weird thing happened yesterday. Drove about 5 hours on a road trip then made a few stops. After the last stop I started the car up and it died immediately. I started again and was able keep it running by giving it gas but as soon as I let off it died again. I got the car going by keeping the revs up and coming off the clutch. For the rest of the drive whenever I came to a stop light the rpms would drop to below 500 and it felt like the car would die. Also the oil pressure dropped to about 20 psi.
Car is a 2000 trans am m6, with only light bolt ons, 59k miles.
I am thinking the iac valve is bad but wanted to see if anybody else has heard about anything like this. Thanks!

sounds like iac, MAF sensor or something like that. no SES light?

I would start by cleaning your throttle body and throttle body blade with some carb cleaner. They can get carboned up and will cause your symptoms. It is alot cheaper than replacing your IAC-

Have you changed the fuel pump? If it is a stocker it could be on its way out.
