Stalling or Low Engine Idle Speed Due to Dirty Throttle Body on Chevrolet Suburban 1500

A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal idle and an engine stalling condition can develop. Performing a throttle body service will generally correct this concern.

Low idle engine stalls occasionally. RPMs are at 500 dipping to 400 but they should be around 600 to 800 I believe.
my suburban runs very strong but sometimes when i go to park my car it stalls when i start to turn into the parking spot.please help
My truck was stalling and shutting off at stop signs or red lights. I had the throttle body clean and had no more issues.
My Chevy suburban just stops when turning or at a stop.
Ours will say traction control off, stabilitrack off, and then say reducing engine power. It also can not sit and warm up or it will die. We have been waiting on a new throttle body for over two weeks.
cleaned throttle body
vehicle would stall at red lights,turns,and shifting into reverse. I used CRC throttle body cleaner and CRC mass air flow cleaner. Problem solved instantly!!!
My 2009 suburban behaved the same way, rand rough, stabilitrak light, traction control light, service engine - the whole 9 yards, this all happened at 0500 hours on the way to work. My husband got it to the dealership and they indicated it was the throttle body, we will see when it is picked up...not very happy about any of this, what a dangerous situation...
