Default Stalling

Hi,

I've got a '91 Legacy that stalls or just about stalls after the rpms fall by letting the clutch out. I've pulled all the vacuum hoses I can find, plugged the end and revved the engine to try and duplicate the effect, allways the same, it just about stalls. This happens in any temperature range. If it isn't air it's got to be fuel. Could a low pressure fuel pump do this only at low rpms?

It could be as simple as a dirty throttle bore. I hate to sound like a jerk, but if you don't know what you're doing, you're probably just going to cause yourself problems in the long run. Take it to a competent mechanic you trust and let them at least diagnose it for you. Then you can make an informed decision if you are capable of fixing it or not.

could be a dirty throttle body, a toasted O2 sensor... have you done a tune up(plugs, wires, cap, rotor) recently/ever? it's probably just some basic maintence item...

IIRC scoobies have been DIS(Distributorless Ignition System) for a VERY long time. But yes there is a multitude of possible problems.

Lightbulb Simple check...

Make sure all your vacuum lines are all connected properly, and that there are no vacuum leaks as well.

LaterZ!

Found out it was the Idle Air Screw. Would have taken me years to figure that one out, thanks for all the replies though.
