I have already posted this under Repair Technical Discussion, but I'm not getting any activity with that. So I'm reposting here hoping to catch a break:
"Hi, I'm new here and I have a very annoyong problem with my 1999 Mirage 1.5l auto.when the car is first started up, after sitting for several hours, it idles fine, but when it starts warming up the idle drops and sometimes the engine stalls out. Usually when it gets warm enough it runs fine, although it hesitates like crazy.
During the warm up process, if I'm driving and come to a stop and it decides to act up, I have to either hold the brake and give it gas or put in neutral or park to keep it running. but sometimes that doesn't always work.
I've had the for about 10 months or so and have put in a low mileage transmission it it. Here is a list of the crap I have changed in this car to attempt to get it running right:
1. MAP sensor
2. TP sensor
3. Post Cat 02 sensor
4.Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor
6.Fuel Pump, fuel sending unit(even though that's just for the gauge), and fuel filter
7. Cleaned fuel tank
8. Spark plugs and wires
9.Installed an air intake
12. Flushed Coolant because it was brown
There is also no cat on the exhaust, even though i said post cat 02 sensor, the car came that way. I also get the codes p0170 and p0125. thanks for reading all this and for any and all help in advance.
