Default Had timing replaced but engine stumbles then stalls.

Hi there I'm new to the forums.

I had my timing belt replaced after it broke on me but now it just stumbles while idle then stalls. It drives ok but stalls coming to a stop. Does anyone have any suggestions about this?

Default RE: Had timing replaced but engine stumbles then stalls.

Possible causes:
Weak fuel pressure
Throttle position sensor
Vacuum leak (hose not put back)
Manifold absolute pressure sensor
Idle air control motor
Dirty throttle body
Something else?????????

Some or all of these will generate codes. Grab any codes in the computer and come back here to the forum. Many AutoZone stores will read codes for you.
