    2000 Camaro Will not Idle

    HELP! My 2000 Z-28 just died while I was at a red light. I will not idle or start unless I give it gas. When it is running its rough and as soon as I take my foot off the gas it dies. Any Ideas? Thanks!

    Take it to an auto zone and have them check the PCM engine codes

    No but it's worth a try. I was thinking more of the throttle position sensor.

    Your best bet is to pull the code or codes so we can direct ya further. is the light flashing or just steady on?

    Keep a can of MAF cleaner handy anyway. Just to be safe. Could be minor.

    P0174- system to lean bank 2
    P0171- system to lean bank 1
    P0101- maf circuit range
    P0300- random multiple misfire
    Check the connections on the Maf and pull it off and clean with some CRC Maf cleaner, Just curious but what air filter are you running?

    I had a feeling you would say that, clean the maf because its coated in oil from the filter, then toss it in the trash and pick up a simple paper filter from the parts store. They flow the same and provide the same amount of protection.

    If you really want a nice reusable one go for an amsoil AE filter
    vaccum and its clean and you don't have to oil it
    If not a paper one is your best bet
