    Engine stalling each morning

    Every morning when i start my car, it seems to stall. I reverse off my drive then it dies, turn the key and its fine then all day. Seems to happen most days and today i tried it by turning the engine on and leaving it for a minute or so, without reving it. After say a minute, it just cut out..

    Its not a major problem, as i say it seems to be fine after that, just wondering what it could be? Maybe the idle valve thingy?

    the engine starts fine no problems, but if i dont rev it, and leave it for a bit, it idles just over 1000 revs first, then moves down to about 900, then 800, then just slowly cuts out. it then starts fine and is fine from then on

    My car used to struggle for revs on cold mornings. Turns out it was low on oil. I filled it up with Magnetec and it's cool and the gang now. Have you checked the oil level?
