car idles low at 550 to 450 up and down,,, never steady .. car has lost power and will not even spin tires, its a 2011 ss v8 with 38000 miles.. checked the maf sensor and replaced i did a fuse pull checked all vac lines and nothing...
Car shakes a lot, I believe because it needs new motor mounts and transmission mounts. The car idles low and has sometimes caused the car to stop while at a stop light due to being in drive and on brakes.
stability lights on and engine states reduced speed. Dealer states I need to replace throttle
When having to drive slowly, like at a car cruise, smell raw gas. Then car begins to run rough, stall. At other times, like after fueling car and driving away it will stall, because the idle will not come up to acceptable levels. Problem not fixed as of this posting.
