Problem Description and Possible Solution
Debris can get into the idle air control valve. This will restrict the air flow into the engine, causing idle speed and/or stalling when cold. The valve can be cleaned or replaced to correct this concern.

I got this car about a month ago, and put 300 miles on it. It started idling rough today and when I drove,it was really power deprived it seemed, so I'm taking it to my mechanic.Wierd thing is, no check engine light.
I just had the engine replaced, but got the car back with check engine light on, and very sluggish . After driving about 10 miles the car stalls on idle. The codes I am receiving are 55 and 71. Once the rpm is passed idle she's fine.
