CHEVY STALLS WHEN FOOT IS TAKEN OFF THE GAS PEDAL

1991 Chevrolet Lumina • 140,000 miles

I have a 91 Lumina Euro. My friend just replaced the starter. Immediately afterwards, I took the car out for a test drive. Now it is wanting to stall when I take my foot off the gas pedal. Also, I hear a screeching sound while starting the car. Any ideas?

Were you having this problem before the work was done? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? You should be able to check those codes, yourself.

With any idle issue, I clean the threottle-body and idle air control.

I was not having the stalling problem before the repair was done. I will check for codes.

Did you have the battery disconnected?

The battery is a good thought.

If he disconnected the battery, it's going to have to go through relearn and that's probably why we haven't heard back from him.

When you mentioned battery, I knew what you were refering to, I always seem to forget that. Have a good day.
