As soon As I get a pic of the engine you will see that it is in imac. condition because the elder lady took very good care. But, No one knew why this car did this, three years before she died and she never got the answer I want to know, so I feel like I helped her...Thanks Guys...:0

Try cleaning the throttle plate with choke cleaner. It is pictured on the tune up are on this site. Make sure to clean the IAC valve as well. That's the kind of square hole by the throttle plate. Then put it back to gether and try it out. Make sure to clean both sides of the plate.

My mechanic told me that it had some type of vacuum hose or line unhooked that someone had unhooked it and the fuel injectors had to be replace and something with the injector port not making fire? I don't know. But, it was a combination of things and it stalled because and shook because of these things oh and the TCC valve was bad he unhooked it and it ran just fine. So he is replacing it. The total cost of the repairs on this "NEW" car comes for this job $475.00 and the valves and labor $300.00 for a grand total for the two jobs to find one problem $775.00 and the cost of the car $1450.00 plus the tags $125.00 plus insurance 325.00 for six months. GRAND TOTAL OUT: $2675.00 OUCH! But He said, it is fixed we shall see now to find the money to pay him. Car is to old for a loan. So let's see what happens. THANKS GUYS FOR ALL YOUR HELP. HE DID EVERYTHING YOU SAID< AND IT WORKED. THANKS YOUR SITE IS AWESOME AS SOON AS I Get paid, in Aug. I promise to be back and Give a DONATION.I PROMISE. TERRI
