Why is my engine not staying on when I let off the gas pedal? And Why does this occur more often in colder wheather?
As this winter has been approaching, my car has been getting harder to keep it running without feeding it gas, especially when it is not moving - like at a red light or stop sign. It got a little warmer yesterday and actually stayed running after we got home and let off the gas - I hadn't yet turned the key off and realized the motor was still running. I turned it off, then back on - and it stayed running again until I shut it off.
The car has a lot of miles on it, but has run well since I got it in 1997. Does any one think this might be a thermostat issue, and if so, what's the best way to go about fixing it.
