Happens to me to, when ever I go to lunch I only warm the car for bout a minute and go, so when I stop it feels like the car wants to shut down but only when I'm not warming it up, I thought its cuz of the intake but I dunno.
This should not be accepted as normal and therfore ok. It drives me crazy!
I have the '03 SVT and I have the same story. This car will drop far enough where the battery light comes on because the Alt is not spinning fast enough. If I am going slow (10 mph in first) down my street, the car bucks and lurches. What gives?
I have been starting my car, idling it for only a few minutes as opposed to letting it warm-up for 10 minutes, and then driving away.
When I go down the street for let's say a 1/2 mile and stop, the idle will dip down heavily, the car almost dies and it does this about 2-3 times and then it is smooth as glass. It will do this usually once or twice at stops until the car warms up to temperature.
I have no idea what to think. I baby the car - no racing, shifting around 3k, oil changes every 3k, new air filter at 20k (has 21k right now 2001SE), and so-forth.
Any suggestions? Reply here and/or send me an Email.
