so randomly when i shift to neutral when rolling up to a stoplight or to roll down a hill or something my rpm will drop to 200 and then bounce back to 1000 or it will completely stall... any ideas why?
Could be a few things... Fuel and spark would be the first things I would check. As your car decels to a stop, spark might be cutting out or the computer is not giving enough fuel to idle... hence the bouncing rpm's and stalling. It can also be a faulty sensor in transmission.
Is it doing it all the time or every once in a while? I had this problem with my '01 Accord MT, and it was my speed senor that went bad.
yeah i haven't been able to figure it out. i was thinking the computer may have been giving too much or not enough fuel but i don't know why it would because my only mods are cai and gt takeoffs. my girlfriends 2002 5 speed v6 does the same thing and its completely stock. any ideas how i would go about pin pointing and fixing this issue?
i actually tried the fuel injector cleaner no too long ago, probably 3 weeks or so and that didnt seem to help. maybe ill try replacing the plugs wires and coil with the nice performance stuff and see if it still happens.
I would pull one of your plugs and check for scorching and excessive carbon build-Up. I actually just ordered a set of 8.5mm MSD wires and new plugs for my car. I had some really bad carbon build-up from the previous owner.
the MAF is the first sensor on your intake after the filter. and id say a little compressed air would be the best war to clean it. as for the IAC i dono im just going to check my book when i get home. very handy thing to have
random question. but chris did the tranny you got from the junkyard come out of a 99-04 mustang or something else? because i can find a yard within 50 miles or here that has a anything newer than a fox body... not that i need one but it just crossed my mind.
