Occasionally the van will stop/stall at a stop light/stop

Customer Question

occasionally the van will stop/stall at a stop light/stop sign. It seems as though it is not getting enough gas and is chocking. Like you have bad gas. A friend cleaned the throttle body thinking that might be the issue. he had also replaced the spark plugs while he was replacing a cooling system hose that broke. it is running smother but is still stalling. He thought some acg? valve might be the issue. Do you have any ideas?
JA: Has the car been overheating? Have you noticed any leaks?
Customer: The car over heated the other day as a result of the hose break. there have been no leaks. There was a problem with the sensor and thermostat but they have been replaced.
JA: Are you fixing your Van yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Throttle body cleaning so far for the stalling. Assumed the sensor and thermostat were separate issues
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that could cause the engine to die. Te problem may be an idle air control motor issue, it could be a leaking EGR valve, or possibly the toque converter clutch staying locked up when you come to a stop.

What year and model is the vehicle and what engine do you have?
Have you checked for fault codes?
