Q: Car shuts off when I come to a stop - 2007 Dodge Charger

asked by on

When I come to a stop the car cuts off. It serms to happen more when the weather is cooler.

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. This behavior suggests "lean running" problems at low speed, a scenario which gets worse with colder weather. This could be caused by a clogged or malfunctioning idle air controller and/or throttle body, dirty or clogged injectors, an EGR valve sticking open - even partially - or intake air leaks.

I would recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to determine why the car is shutting off and suggest the repairs necessary to get your car back in proper working order.
