I was driving around today and the car stalled on me, i didnt even feel it stall, no jolt or nothing. I then started it up again and had to keep my foot on the accelerator when ever i put it in drive cause the revs would drop so low the car would start surging. As soon as i would put it in Park or Neutral the revs would go back up n back to normal. No codes come up.
Anyone have this problem before?
Cheers.

Sounds like the IAC valve on the throttle body just needs a clean out. Common problem.

Hey mate. This is a different problem now. The car was running good for a while. Never ends does it?
