Spark plugs have problems replace genuine accessories. If you can confirm that the spark plug is genuine, you can try to change high-voltage ignition coil

SOURCE: surging and high idle on 94 silverado

If your idle is going from 500rpms to 1000rpm's fluctuating at and idle your EGR valve is probably carbon up and needs cleaned or replace.

SOURCE: idle is high unless I tap the gas pedal

To me this sounds like the return spring on the carby has lost its strengh or your carburator needs a good clean as the throtle linkages could be dirty. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: starts/stalls won't run until pedal tapped, 2

Check your IAC motor (Idle Air Control) It could be sticking open.
Ps. Might be called Idle Speed Control motor it depends on the make and i forget what chevy calls theres.

SOURCE: car stalls

the problem sounds like it is not getting enough of fuel. check or replace fuel filter to see if this helps, also make sure fuel pump is pumping the fuel at the right pressure. have pressure checked if need be. if not enough fuel a vehicle will run at idle, but stall under pressure.

1998 jeep cherokee wont start unless gas pedal is pressed to the floor will idle fine but revs high when i touch the gas pedalal


Had this problem too, and you need to check that your TPS sensor plug.harness is tight, the best way to do that is to actually unplug it, blow it out and then plug it back in. But the same problem happened again and it turned out to be the CPS plug had come loose, again check it and make sure it's seated well, and everyone will tell you to replace them, but if take a wooden dole, or stick and can tap yours gently down towards the transmission I've found that it works well after that.

2000 dodge stratus 2.4l dohc stalls at stops starts up with very light touch of gas pedal may or may not stall again for a coule stops but will again rpms go from around 800 at idle to 500 then 200 th


If it's fuel-injected, you may need to have the injectors cleaned, and also, any air filters should be changed at the same time along with gas filter/s. If it's carbureted, the same as above, but have someone clean the carburetor completely. Make sure all air hoses are attached correctly, securely and NOT broken. If broken, replace them.

Idled high, replace IAC and PCV, now idles low and stalls


On modern day cars the parts that get fitted need to be adapted to the ECM using a decent diagnostic machine. I bet that this was not done and the car is now suffering as a result.
Something to try is resetting the ECU, simply disconnect battery for 10 minutes, reconnect, then start car from cold *without touching gas pedal* and leave idling until the rad fan comes on (this resets all the base idle settings) then take it for a drive - hopefully will solve the problem
