I've been on here a lot and I've fixed a lot of theirs problems myself so I know what thread to look for lol I hope this helps.
But if that's not it I'll bet it's the alternator.


I'd check that and probably check, clean, or replace the IAC valve.

zpellicone How many miles on it? Don't forget that these 01's had major fuel pump issues that caused stalling. Specifically, my 01 would stall and attempt to die when it shifted sometimes. Just another possible cause.

kano601 it will help when it comes to the slipping issue if it still exists with the car. but i did send the guy a message concerning the car stalling when engaging drive/reverse from a stop, and stalling when coming to a stop.

girfriends car was slipping out of gear, brought it in, tried lucas oil, didnt help, changed the tranny fluid, and filter. i believe it stopped slipping although now when you drop it into gear, it stalls unless you first put it into neutral, rev it slightly, then put into drive. also stalls when coming to a stop once you get around 10-15 mph. im thinking possible torque converter gone bad, but im not 100% so here i am asking for more experience opinions.
