2003 mitsubishi montero limited...

2003 mitsubishi montero limited. just started today that when put on heater the engine will stall. from what i have seen online it says to look into the idle air control valve. just called parts house to check on price and availability and their computer system says the 2003 does not use one. i am confused. what can be causing this? thank you

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

I did have to put some coolant in last week, but an unaware of any leaking.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Montero yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have not tried anything yet. just checking on line as to what can cause this

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really i guess the only issue is that this occurerd and then later it was not happening and then about an hour later it happened again.

If you hold the rpm higher and turn on the HVAC does it still stall?

What is the battery voltage at idle speed?

Holding rpm higher and turn on hvac does keep the engine from stalling.Do not know the battery voltage at idle speed. Will need to have someone check that.

This is going to come down to the electronic throttle body needing to be cleaned or the alternator output is not correct. Can you try cleaning the throttle body while open?

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me.
