\015 As long as I'm on the gas it runs fine,the second Ilet off it stalls.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 27-01-2020

Answers :

You may have a plugged catalytic converter. When you are on the gas, the engine is basically forcing the air through, but at idle and much lower exhaust pressure, the gas pressure builds up and suffocates the engine.
\015\012It should cost around $10 to take it to a shop where they will test it for you. They drill a small hole BEFORE and then AFTER the cat and use a gauge to measure the PSI of airflow. They then weld the 2 small holes shut.
\015\012I had this happen to me with my 1995 Neon. It was very confusing until my father suggested I try the "cat" solution. Pretty neat!
\015\012Hope this cures it for ya. btw- a new "cat" should run around $200 installed.
