Slight stalling when idling...?

Recommended Posts


I have had a couple of times (in addition to some "hunting idling" at times - throttle body and MAF to be cleaned this summer...) the unpleasant experience of engine stalling when idling in a downhill position. My guess would be fuel filter and/or fuel pump. Any other ideas before I fork out the money for parts?

I'm not sure about the cost for tools in Norway, but here in the US you can pickup a fuel pressure tester for about $40 USD, which might be a good investment since the fuel pump costs considerably more to replace.

I'm not sure about the year of your car, but a searching idle can sometimes be due to a dirty or faulty idle control valve and/or throttle body. You might try to clean them first before trying with the more expensive repairs.

Thanks, but I decided life with my 97 boxster will be better without having to worry about fuel delivery.....so I ordered from Pelican wihat I needed. And, by the way, tools and parts are insanely expensive here. Strange considering how close we are to Germany....Anyway, are there any articles/howtos on pressure testing ?
