Engine stalling on start up

Recommended Posts

OK I have a problem with my engine when I initially start the engine up. It will run for about one minute then stall

It's probably due to the cat delete, mine does this often. A new O2 sensor may help.

Not sure but think you should have short circuited the vac pipes back at the soleniod and not at the sensor.

Pretty sure thats what I did on mine when EBV deleted. Haven't got it here though so can't check I'm afraid!!

After I did the de-cat, mine would start up, run well for a minute, then run really rough like it was about to stall, but rarely actually did stall. After 30 seconds of running poorly, it would pick up and be just fine. I reset the ECU, and it hasn't done it since. I also noticed the problem was the worst in hot weather, but I doubt you've experienced any of that lately :)

The IACV should be able to keep the car ticking over, it's its job after all. Try resetting it to give it a chance to start in the right position, it may be misaligned.
