UPDATED SEE LAST POST 06 Cobalt Rough Idle/Stall when Stopping or Quick Deceleration
Here is the problem I have.
06 Cobalt LT 2.2l 103065 Miles
When decelerating on the freeway to come to a virtual stop for traffic, when stopping at a stop light, when pulling out of the driveway, or at any point when the RPM's fall quickly to idle speed I have an irratic idle.
Idle will fluctuate between 300-750 rpms
Normal idle is around 750 rpms
This morning it actually stalled when I was pulling up to a stop sign to pull out of my subdivision. It did restart right away.
When the Idle is rought the lights dim on the car, power steering becomes weak, and other problems you would expect when your idle drops and your car is about to stall.
No check engine lights come on at all (I wish they did, I have a nice scantool).
If I decelerate slowly, or have been driving at even driving conditions (not alot of accelerating then decelerating) this doesn't really happen.
Any ideas? Has anyone had this happen?
I just bought this car alittle over a month ago and rely on it so I need to figure this out and get it fixed.
