    Engine cuting out when coming to a stop.

    Hi All

    I have just purchased 2005 WRX and just this morning i was driving home coming up to a set of lights with my foot on the brake and changed into neutral and then the car's idle went to zero and the engine cut out just like that!!.

    And then it has done it 4 times today completely out of the blue with noooo engine lights etc etc.

    PLEASE IF ANY ONE CAN HELP ME OUT WITH SOME SORT OF SOLUTION THIS WOULD BE GREAT THANKS.

    Is the car completely stock, or is it modded? If modded, what exactly has been done to it?

    Try cleaning the IACV and check for a leak between the airbox and turbo inlet.

    Also make sure battery connections are secure, as well as grounding points.

    The engine needs more sand... J/k you might want to clean the mass airflow sensor too...
