Hi guys...
i have an 03 svt with almost 52,000 miles
and maybe 1 time a month i will be rolling up to a stop sign and i will push the clutch in and the cars rpms will fall all the way down to zero and the battery light will come on....then the rpms will just go back to normal idle
has anyone had this problem before??
thanks

Welcome to the infamous bog. This is a problem that plagues SVT's. This will get fixed if you get a tune. Plus, everyone recommends that you get a tune and it will be a different car. If you already have a tune disregard the beginning. There are many symptoms that can cause this. Dirty MAF or bad O2 sensor. Most of the time I would say this is the problem, but you have no engine codes. So get a tune.

Do Tom's Tune. It's a world of difference.

Perhaps, but it was a very common problem with the SVTs. More-so than the regulars.

mine's a 05 ZX3 with 20K miles on the odo, and when I'm moving at an idle RPM speed, or when I'm releasing the clutch slowly to let it idle-drive, the motor sputters and acts like it's gonna die. I was thinking maybe it could be the throttle?

Maybe. Or perhaps the TPS? I've heard of that being bothersome.

Tom's Tune, PM Mr. Tom (1TurboFocus) and tell him I sent ya. I believe it's a little under 400 shipped. It's SO worth it though. He will customize it to fit your mods.
