why is my car idling too low and sometimes stalling when I stop
I have a question I hope someone can help with. Just recently my 95 SC 5-speed with 102K miles developed a problem. When I stop at lights or other places, the RPM need drops way down below 500rpm and the car sometimes just dies which can cause problems because obvioisly I lose the sterring. It does not idle rough at all. It idles at around 900-1000 rpm when the car is sitting still. Just happens when I shift down then put it in neutral and let it coast up to the light. The car just wants to quit and I have to start it back up quickly then it runs fine. Can it be a fuel pump or vacumn problem? Thank you for any help.
What it does is that between 1st and 2nd gear and 1st and neutral: when I depress the clutch the rpm's drop to around 500. I think they should be higher. When rolling to a stop, the car will sometimes just idle way too low and quit, so I have to restart it. My speedometer stopped working at the same time this problem started. I have already ordered a new speedometer head. Any relation in the two problems.
