Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Is the check engine light on? Does it always restart right away? Thanks.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Check engine light is not on. Yes it starts up again
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Do you have the 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder engine? Have you cleaned out throttle body? Thanks.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Four cylinder. No I haven't. Changed cam and crank
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Most other things would turn on the check engine light besides a dirty throttle body so I'd start with that. Get some throttle cleaner from parts store, spray onto a rag, then wipe out throttle bore and throttle plate good as possible. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.

Can I do this myself ? Is it hard ?
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

It is something you can do in about 15 minutes. Remove intake tube from throttle body and wipe out, it is really simple. Let me know how it turns out or if you have questions, thanks.

Where's the throttle bore and plate ?

Ok. I am a female. I will try. Lol Think I can do it ?
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Definitely, all you need is a screwdriver to loosen clamp to remove plastic/rubber intake ducting from throttle body. THen make sure to spray rag, not into throttle body. Let me know how it goes, thanks.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Ok. Will do. Thanks. This should stop the stalling ?
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Yes it should stop the stalling. Feel free to reply at any time, thanks.
