Hello Kelly


I'm Chris, Thanks for allowing me to help you here on Just Answer.


If you hold a little bit of throttle pressure to about 1500 rpms and it still dies then you have a transaxle concern with low fluid pressure to the torque converter. If this stops the stalling issue then you have a faulty idle air control valve.

thank you
power braking above 2000 rpm and the motor wont die,im looking for a repair or replace recomindation and why does it work normal after a complete warm up?

Once the idle air control warms up it is more able to move especially when its worn out and weak or binding.
