    Do you have an aftermarket intake? Check the intake conection to the throttle body. If its not tight you lose air and the car stalls happened to me a few times. 5 min with a screwdrive and its fixed.

    Check your battery connection, tighten the cable connecters to the terminals as tight as possible, I had the same problem because battery wasn't connected correctly.

    I'm getting similar odd sputter feel and sound and for some reason my tach goes back and forth and then my temp guage goes towards cool and then it mellows out again. Noticed it after turns on inclines when i stop. No mods, and had all services done to car, and new fuel pump. [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

    Mine's stalled a couple times. It only happend when I started the car drove for a few miles then stopped at a stop sign. It hasn't done it for a few months now, so I don't even worry about it anymore.

    Sorry but I cannot agree with your actions.All she has done for you and you are going to ruin her credit by doing this?

    im gonna bring this post back from the dead. i have a 2002 zx3 and its stalling every once in a while when i stop. the rpms drop and come back up. they keep doing that ans sometimes it stalls. my car is a mtx and it only does it in neutral.

    i thought they fixed the fuel pump in the 02s? any suggestions. or should i say **** it and bring my car into the shop.

    1) Check that your battery cables are tight.
    2) Check that there are no loose intake or vacuum hoses or connectors.
    3) Check that your intake ducts are all in place and tight.
    4) If none of the above is the problem, then you most likely have a malfunction in the Idle Engine Speed Control sensor/valve. This is not a consumer serviceable part, unfortunately, and it is buried behing the engine. :-( Your dealer will have to replace it. It's about a $40 part, but the "standard hours" to fix it brings the total cost to about $200. The good news is that it only takes about an hour, and is covered under your warranty (or maybe your extended warranty).

    OK, I have a small issue along this line....
    My wife's '02 ZX-5 has stalled on her a couple of times.
    I've never been able to duplicate it.
    It ONLY happens shortly after COLD Startup.
    Basically, she leaves the house, drives a block or two, and there's a Stop sign. If she Stops, and has to wait, she puts the car in Neutral, and lets off the clutch. This is when it dies.
    It Restarts just fine. It doesn't do it if she keeps the clutch depressed. It doesn't do it after warm-up.
    Any Ideas?
