Hello. My son called me tonight about a problem with his 1993 Chevrolet Corsica with 4 cyl. & automatic trans. He says that if the car has been setting and not running for a while, at least 30 minutes , that when he then cranks it, the engine will die when he takes his foot off of the brake pedal. Does this make any sense to anyone ???? He had his gasoline filter changed along with the oil & filter last week. What do you make of this problem ??? Thanks for any help.

Hows the battery? Sometimes computers do goofy things with a weak battery

ALSO, how is your idle speed? Does it seem to be slow and almost quitting? I also turned up the idle on the lumina (idle set screw was ~LOOSE~), and it fixed the problem

My guess would be a vacuum brake booster vacuum leak causing lean condition.

Does it die as soon as it is pulled into gear?

If it feels like a manual trans that you just dumped the clutch and it killed the engine - it is most likely the converter clutch being stuck on. You will need to replace the converter solenoid - unplugging the connector will only help if it is stuck on electrically. Most of the time the solenoid itself is bad. Pull the side cover to change it.

In that case it could be that the locking converter clutch is not unlocking and it pulls the engine down. I believe that he can unplug the converter clutch an that model so it would be an open converter. That would determine if it is the converter clutch and also allow him to use it until fixed. It just won't get as good gas mileage as when it is working properly.

I agree with Vern. It's a simple thing to test and a fairly easy thing to fix. You just have to remove the side cover on the driver's side of the tranny and replace the Converter Clutch solenoid in there. I've done dozens of them. It looks harder than it really is. Just remove the driver's side front wheel and the little plastic splash shield in the wheel well, and there's plenty of room to get to everything.
Good Luck and God Bless, Tommy
