Q: The rpm drops when stopped. It feels like it wants to die then catches to normal, it will do this a couple of times.

asked by on

No check engine light is on, and my Verizon Hum isn't picking anything up either. I have replaced the crankshaft sensor, spark plugs, battery, PCV valve and it still does it. It also has a problem starting when the temperature is between half and 0 degrees. Nothing else is wrong with the car, perfect condition. I just can't figure out the drop in rpm when stopped. And it starts doing it when it's warmed up. There is hesitation when I press the gas after the rpm drops too. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi, thanks for writing in. I would recommend checking the idle air control valve which is what regulates intake air as it is mixed with fuel at idle and upon slowing down to an idle speed. When this is not functioning properly, it can cause the RPM's to fluctuate and hesitate when accelerating from a stop. It is a common problem.

If you would like further help, consider having an expert automotive technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to inspect and diagnose this issue for you, and make or suggest any repairs as needed.

Q: Car is dead, no signs of "life" at all.

Since you ran the battery dead several times before you replaced the alternator, you caused the battery to get sulfated internally. The lead acid inside a battery will only last for so long. Most batteries will last between 3 to...

Q: Steering wheel makes clanking noise

I would not delay an inspection of your car, judging by the variety of noises it is making. A worn axle or “halfshaft” can click when going around corners. A worn wheel bearing gets louder with speed. I would have...
