Q: Stalls when slowing down or at idle

asked by on

Vehicle occasionally stutters like it wants to stall sometimes. Only happens when slowing to a stop or slowing to make a right turn. Has stalled out once but started back up right away. No dummy lights on dash. Cleaned throttle body, fuel injectors, changed spark plugs, problem remains.
