Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

Richard :

When the engine stalls does it start right back up? Can you keep the engine running if you hold your foot on the gas?

Customer:

yes

Richard :

If you can keep the engine froom stalling by holding your foot on the gas then the usual problem is a sticking idle air control valve or possibly a vaccum leak. I see issues with those intake seals as well as the EGR tube seal creating vacuum leaks.

Customer:

where is it located

Richard :

It is located on the intake.
