Q: After changing radiator and oil, car stalls when coming to stop. Is the motor damaged?

asked by on

Every time I come to stop the car stalling . This is happening 1 day after radiator changed because cracked- car was reheat . What can be the problem now, or damage?

My car has 138 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. Stalling can be caused by many things. If the engine is no longer overheating, then it is unlikely that the stalling is directly related to the radiator repair. A few common causes for stalling when braking are a faulty idle air control valve or vacuum leaks. The idle air control valve is the component responsible for maintaining and adjusting the engine's idle speed.

If the valve fails or malfunctions, it can cause idle issues and stalling. The same for a vacuum leak. A vacuum leak, if large enough, can cause stalling. Another thing to check, if the issue appears to be brake related, is the brake booster, as this component is vacuum-operated and can also leak. It may also be possible that a hose or tube came loose, if any of the intake tubes, or vacuum hoses had to be removed when replacing the radiator. I would start by checking the engine for vacuum leaks and then looking at the idle air control valve.

If you need assistance, then I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to determine why the car is stalling and suggest any necessary repairs.

Q: Car shaking and trying to stall.

It sounds as though you have multiple problems. The shaking when braking is almost definitely warped brake rotors. Resurfacing, or replacing the brake rotors, as well as replacing the pads, should solve this. The jerking and lack of power under...
