Default Stalling !!

Can any one give any light to why my recently purchased PT 04 plate sometimes stalls and dies when in idle. The weather is awful but don't feel it's anything to do with it only got her Saturday !!!

Plus how hard is it to change the front grill I'd prefer a chrome one !!! ??

Any help would be appreciated x

There's a couple sensors that affect your idle and may need cleaning or replacing. The Idle Air Controller or the Throttle Position Sensor. You might need the throttle body itself cleaned of carbon buildup.

The front grill can be changed in a matter of a couple minutes. Just find a chrome one, maybe eBay, that fits the 01-05 cruisers and replace yours with the new one. A couple screws on each side and carefully lifting up and out and the grill comes off.

There are also chrome covers that only cover the grid itself which I think look the best. CREWZIN's got you covered on the idle I think.
