Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. What have you done so I do not recommend something that has already been done? Is the check engine light on? Thanks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No check engine light haven't did nothing yet but check spark plugs fuses and disconnect battery
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
The most likely cause is a dirty throttle body which will cause stalling, hard starting, and low idle without turning on the check engine light. When the throttle body gets dirty it cause airflow restrictions during closed throttle conditions. So next step is to get some throttle body cleaner and use that with a rag to wipe out throttle bore good. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
The throttle body would be the carburetor looking thing on engine where air gets sucked into. Here is a picture, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

That is correct, a dirty throttle body fits your symptoms perfectly. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
