Default Re: 2003 ION Stalls at Stop....Now Dangerous to Drive

Now Happy to Report Problem, Fixed !
Crank sensor was replaced and synched in by a shop, and that cured my problem 99%..... leaving an occasional minor tendency to stall , without stalling. This morning I cleaned throttle body again , from a few months ago, and engine is very happy, no stalling or attempting to stall, just smooth throttle take off from stop. It took me 6 months to get this devil , but it was worth it ! So to summarize it all ....it looks like it was the crank sensor all along, but initially , it never threw a code. So I have replaced every sensor on engine, but not a waste for a 18 year old ION with 232,000 miles. Now hope to get at least 50, - 60,0000 more till I retire, in 5 years.... but by then I'm sure we'll all be in electric cars anyways....hope I'm wrong.....lol GTSRider Hudson Valley N.Y.
