My car runs good but when in parking it idles. Then it just turns off. The o2 sensors are bad and this car I have been working on for a while, it has original fuel pump and fuel regulator.

Do you
have the same problem?

The 02 sensor just monitor the engine condition, The ECM uses the 02 sensor for fuel control, When the vehicle stall in park you have a IAC (idle air control) problem

Also check the pcv hose as it is common for failing back at the throttle body

Could u tell me the part number for the pcv in my car, auto part gave the wrong one. Should I put a clip on the hose at the throttle body to keep it steady? Thank you.
