an01sts Posted June 25, 2005 Report Share Posted June 25, 2005 My car is stalling. About a week ago, I noticed that the car seemed just a tad sluggish. I installed a new air filter, but when I pulled the old one, it seemed obvious that it wouldn't make a difference. When the car is first started, it has a mis/runs rough, and slight tap of the accelerator pedal smooths it out. (It also stays on high idle longer than usual.) If I'm poking along whithout the tranny shifting up, it runs smooth. The problem happens when the cars gets up to speed and into the higher gears. When you let off the gas, when the tach droppes to around 2k, the tach drops instantly to zero. Then it flutters around between zero and 1.1k to 1.3k, always ending up stalling. The car also bucks as it drops into first gear. When slowing down, if I give it just a tad of gas, it doesn't stall. Pull codes! I know! How do you pull codes on an 01 STS?
