1998 Contour SE Stalls in IDLE.
I have a 1998 Contour SE, which stalls when trying to idle, it also runs very rough when slowing to a stop sign as if it wants to stall.
I had a lincoln before and the same problem turned out to be a dirty IACV, which i took off, cleaned and away i went. On my contour when these symtoms started i took it to the mechanic cause I could not remove the IACV on this car, too tight a space.
My mechanic checked the error codes which came up "Bank 1 too lean" and "Bank 2 too lean". He tested the IACV and he said it was stuck in the open position. He replaced it and everything seemed fine for about a day, then the stalling in idle came back. I just took it in again today and my mechanic scanned the codes, "Bank 1 too lean" and "Bank 2 too lean", he removed the new iacv and it tested faulty too, so he had it exchanged for a new one, which seems to already be acting up 3 hours later, and the "Check Engine" light is on again.
Is there something that could be causing the IACV to keep blowing? Is there anything else I should be checking???
Thanks in advance,
