I have a stalling problem with the car sometimes when it's cold, now this dosen't happen all the time maybe twice a week. When this happens, the car will start and ideal but when you give it gas and let off the gas it will stall. The car will do this until it runs for about 30 minutes and then it runs fine. Other then that the car runs like new. A friend told me to change the fuel filter, I did so and it's still doing it.
Do you

Hi ronald. Teston,

Thank you for the donation.

I believe the Idle Solenoid Control unit is intermittently causing the problem. It is attached to the lower part of the throttle body and when the gears are worn, chipped off or the valve and throttle body is dirty, it would cause the symptoms described.

I would suggest getting the ISC and throttle body cleaned and retest.
