Model Years Affected: 1996, 1997, 1999, 2004

Average Mileage: 165,424 mi (107,000 mi - 225,698 mi)

The idle air control motors tend to become carboned up at around 100,000 miles and will cause a start and stall and/or stalling at stop sign problems. Many times these valves can be cleaned, however, the sure bet is to replace the idle air control motor and clean the throttle body.

    Shakes, jumps , vibrates & sometimes dies but, only while in idle for example while sitting at traffic light, or stop sign . it has NO regular routine times it does it times it does not , i have noticed if you stop the eng. let it sit 5 min. or more it is fine maybe for 1 mile maybe 100 miles. i have used some of the best fuel system cleaner one can buy
    still it returns in short time span .
