  • Car Chokes and dies when coming to a complete stop

    Hi there, I have a 1991 Ford Festiva GL Automatic. It is my first car and I love it to death but my main problem is that after a few minutes of driving it around town and stopping at a red light or stop sign the car just chokes and dies and when I try to start it up again, it takes off really slow. What could be the problem? I love the car and would like to resolve the issue ASAP. Thanks.

    Have you checked for Vacuum leaks? When was the last time you changed the fuel filter? Also check your Intake hose for leaks.

      What is the idle speed when in park and in normal operating temperature?
