Icon2 car stalls when i hit the brakes

i just bought an 88 (2nd gen?) lude , the previous owner refered me to this sight..

so i was wondering .. what would make the car stall if you press the brakes to slow down with the car in neutral , is it just a matter of messing with the idle screw or is there another part that needs my attention?


your advice would be much appreciated

Re: car stalls when i hit the brakes

dude, mine's been doing the same sh*t lately. i have no idea if this has anything to do with it but i just happened to check my oil level and it was prettly low. and every time i go to hit my brakes for a complete stop, in gear or neutral, my oil light flashes and then it stalls. i know preludes are known to burn oil like a mother so i added a quart and it seems to be doing it a lot less. check ur oil level. i might be on to something here... i have a 5th gen btw. let me know if you figure this out. hope this helps

Re: car stalls when i hit the brakes

no i haven't looked in to a new starter. is there any way to tell if it needs replacing besides buying a new one? the car starts like a charm so i wouldn't think that would be the problem. i don't exactly have money to throw down and i know you can't return electrical parts. what's the EGR plug?

Re: car stalls when i hit the brakes

starter...? lol thats a little random, no offence
egr=exhaust gas recirulation, it'll be on the intake manifold and I'm pretty sure for the 3rd gens its on the right side just behind the oil cap (it kind of looks like a little metal alien space ship lol)

Re: car stalls when i hit the brakes

checking to make sure its plugged in good would be a good start, if you have a volt/ohm meter you can test the plug and the egr valve (..what that plug plugs into)
