Little background information before i explain the problem..
New transmission: 3-4 years old ( Only major work its ever had )
Problem started around 3 or so years ago and it mostly happens in the winter time..
Some times when you first start the car after about 12-24 hours of it sitting it will start normal but the rpm will just drop and it will die..
Most times after that you cant get it to start again unless you hold the peddle to the floor and crank over the starter and then it will turn over and you have to keep your foot on the peddle holding the rpm at about 1k for 5 minutes..
After 5 minutes it is fine and idles on its own
This problem only happens every so often but the next problem ill explain seems to be linked to this problem.
Problem 2 Summary:
When driving if you let off the gas to slow down for a stop sign or whatever it might be you let off the gas for the RPMs will drop under 1k down to probably 1/2 grand some times all the way making the car totally stall..
When the RPMs go down the lights and everything fade..
I am guessing the 2 problems are linked together as they are pretty much alike..
I am hoping someone can give me some insight on what might be the problem
I dont want to have to take it to a mechanic without trying to find out whats wrong with it myself..
I might post a video of it happening to give a idea to the members what exactly is happening but its pretty self explanatory, RPM fades down some times to total engine stall.
Questions if i didnt explain myself good
