    Engine almost dies

    I got a 99 SS Camaro that will every now and then surge. What I mean is it will be idling smoothly then have a big miss and almost die. When it does this all the gauges will jump around like you start the car. Then it will throw a Engine Light but continue to run OK. Any ideas!

    Dirty throttle body or IAC valve, out of adjustment IAC valve, vacuum leak, or an electrical issue... just a few guesses.

    Engine almost dies

    Thanks for the responses. After reading some other threads it looks like I may have an electrical issue. I have had the alternator go out twice and replaced the battery. I had a PS leak that caused both of the issues on the alternator and have corrected that. I am going to check all the connections especially since it sits and the battery is usually down every time I get ready to drive it.
