This started happening when I got around the corner to my house but the car started sputtering while I was going around 40 mph. When I pulled up to the driveway I let it sit in park and the rpms dropped really low and it feels like its about to stall. It does the same thing when I let it sit in drive and sometimes it stalls as soon as I put it into drive. I'm not able to check the CEL its throwing right now but do you guys have any idea what it could be?  icon_scratch

Check your MAF connector. Did this happen right after a mod?

I would check all of your connections from your air filter to the engine. Sounds like something came loose.

No it didn't, I checked the MAF, cleaned it, and unplugged the negative terminal on my battery for 15 minutes. The car drove good for about 10 minutes and then it started doing it again.

Yeah I'm going to do that when i get home from school today. I was looking up what Ramil said and it sounds exactly like my problem I'm having.

if the car is stock it might just be a worn out vacuum line somewhere. they are rubber and get old and wear out and fall apart, even if the car doesn't have a lot of miles on it, its the age that does it.

Well all I have done to the car performance wise is an intake, exhaust and suspensions work. But i have had the exhaust and intake on for more than a year now. Do you think those could be the cause of it?

I still haven't been able to go anywhere to get my CEL checked because it won't even stay on for more than 2 seconds after I start it now.  cussing

I couldn't imagine it'd be your exhaust causing it.

I second the comments regarding a vacuum leak somewhere. Check your lines.

check all your intake couplers, have someone start the car for you and give it a bit of gas to keep it running, and try to hear if you have a air leak noise somewhere.  especially around the intake and battery box area, check the breather line hoses going into the valve cover.

If your CEL came on any time after you reset with the battery, the computer will store the code and you will be able to read it. The ligbt is supposed to come on then shut off when you start the car, its the computer checking the gauge cluster

Yeah so he CEL went away and the car runs now. I got it scanned and it is throwing P0000? I've looked it up and can't find out what I is. The CEL came on about 30 minutes later of driving it. I'm going to get it scanned again today.

Also, me and my friends ran some air through the intake and there is some noise coming from the battery box area. It almost sounds like a squeeling pig lol. We can't find out exactly where it is comming from though

the P1000 code is that the OBC-II didnt run a full cycle. It really wont mean anything since you did get an indicator light that there is another code. The scan tomorrow should tell you want code is really the culprit.

The light came on again. Checked the code and it pulls up P2187 car running too lean. Ive been reading online and some people that had this code ended up replacing the purge solenoid?
