    My car is having trouble. :noes: I can start the car just fine but when I let it idle for a few seconds it dies. This happens with the clutch in, or when it is in nuetral and the clutch is out. Any suggestions?

    i think the idle engine speed may be too low, i had that happen to me on a saab once and once i raised the idle speed it never died like that anymore
