Post Cruiser revs up then stalls

Hi, i have a 2002 2.0 UK PT Cruiser Touring.
I have had a problem in getting it started over the last few weeks. It turns over starts and revs us then when the revs drop it stalls. The only way i can keep it going is to rev it up a few times till it warms up a bit then it runs fine. Anyone have any idea/experience on how to fix the problem?
I have put on new spark plugs and new ignition leads and changes the oil and filters. it also doesnt register any codes.
Also it stalls when the revs drop when i have it in full lock. Is this a common problem and are there any solutions to the problem?

Many thanks

Things to check.

Fuel pressure.
Camshaft sensor
Idle Air Control Valve
Catalytic converter
Throttle Position sensor


Anyone one of these could cause the vehicle to stall when the revs drop.
Mine ran like junk with low revs , turned out my IAC was gunked up.


Hope this helps

IAC is the first suspect as is the idle position. The first can be cleaned.

Thanks for your help. After cleaning out the IAC it now runs like a dream.
Cheers.

You might try some Lucas Fuel system cleaner periodically to keep things happy....
