Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is appreciated. I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

Do you have a check engine light on?

Is it a smooth stall or does it jerk and buck?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
very smooth stall sometimes I press the gas and then notice
Expert:  Cary York replied 3 months ago.

Have you had any repairs done recently? And are there any other warning lights on during normal operation?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I had front wheel bearing replace and the right speed sensor replaced
Expert:  Cary York replied 3 months ago.

It sounds like a dirty throttle body or idle speed control circuit issue. Are there any other warning lights on during normal operation?

Expert:  Cary York replied 3 months ago.

If you have no check engine light on I would clean the throttle body first thing. I can walk you through it via phone if you want to do it yourself. If so let me know. I will initiate a phone call.

Remember if you rate me we can still continue to discussion

Expert:  Cary York replied 3 months ago.

Its not just one phone call. We can call back several times if needed till the problem is solved.
