Exclamation GP stalls when idle or braking

Hi all,

I've got a 2006 GP Eleganza 1.4l 16V which stalls when either idle, ie. the car is not moving, where the revs go below 10x; or when I hit the brakes coming to a stop, in which I noticed that even here the revs are really low.

I have done my research and found that the problem could be one of the following:
  • Fuel Dirt
  • Electrical/Fuel System
  • Fuel Filter/Injector
  • Plugs
  • Carbourator Calibration
  • Vapor Lock

I'm asking here to check whether there's a known problem with the GP or FIAT in general, since what I found was for other car makers.

Thanks in advance.

Re: GP stalls when idle or braking

I assume you have no EML light on.
Check for a split crankcase breather hose, which will allow excess air in to the engine.
Also consider the Idle control valve.
Driving like an idiot and meeting another one coming in the opposite directions has dire consequences.
