    2007 Escalade -stalling when rolling to a stop

    My 2007 Escalade (82,500 miles) just started stalling when I roll to a stop after it has been running for a while. It runs perfect otherwise, no loss of power or hesitation on takeoff or under a load. The problem is intermittent and seems to be more frequent when I slow from freeway speeds. I have seen a post on Just Ask with an identical issue on the same year model car but the discussion ended with the dealer tearing down the motor. Does anyone have any suggestions? BTW: I took it to a chevy dealer and they said it could be the fuel pump but they couldn’t find anything wrong and it has done it since.

    I have seen this problem before in customers vehicals and most the time it turns out to be the drive by wire throttle body, It needs to be replaced but try cleaning it first.

    Could also be a stuck converter clutch solenoid in the transmission. Throw it in neutral when coasting down to a stop to verify.

    Re: 2007 Escalade -stalling when rolling to a stop

    was there ever a solution to this problem?????? I also have a 2007 escalade higher mileage, 180,000, and experienced the same stalling problems this weekend while towing my bass boat to the river. VERY FRUSTRATING AS WE STALLED 6 TIMES!!! After the first stall we called a tow truck to pick us up assuming it was the fuel pump that needed to be replaced. When the tow truck arrived it started and we drove it to a shop where we replaced the fuel pump. We left for our trip after having the work done and the problem continued when we hit the desert as we would come to a stop sign or light it would stall. every time we could get it restarted after 30-60 minutes of cranking on it and pulling out and putting back in the fuel pump relay.

    This made for a horrible trip and obviously now I don't have any confidence driving the vehicle. I have read all the posts on this forum and it seems nobody has found a solution to the problem?????? We were actually putting it in neutral when coming to a stop after having the problem just trying to get home and it did not stall? BTW without towing the boat I have not had issues at least for the day, been driving and stopping and restarting all day. How can I fix the problem if I don't know what to fix???????

    Re: 2007 Escalade -stalling when rolling to a stop

    Would a throttle body that's drive by wire have an IAC valve? (Idle Air Control)

    I ask because I've have this happen on several other cars I've owned over the years that had a few miles on them. Basically it's job is to allow air in for combustion even though you let your foot off the gas.

    Over time the internal plunger can get plugged and either start to stick periodically (which causes the stall when coming to a stop) or completely gets stuck closed meaning the vehicle will only run with foot throttle applied. Hope this helps...


    edit: oh and in previous times I've had this problem it never once threw a problem code/engine light.

    I don't believe our drive by wire system uses an IAC valve, that is why throttle body cleaning is so important

    Yeah doesn't look like it does have one from a quick check.

    Re: 2007 Escalade -stalling when rolling to a stop

    Just experienced this same issue with my 07 (104,000mi) Escalade this weekend. Any suggestions on what to clean the throttle body with? Seafoam,etc! Also is Lucas gas treatment wrong for this type of car? I am so use to adding lucas treatment before a long travel to help engine cleaning, I did it to this truck with out thinking.

    +1 on the crankshaft position sensor. Have replaced this in 2 of my cars with >100k miles. Symptoms were random stalls especially when hot. Otherwise ran fine. No codes thrown.

    Same problem with my 07 Denali. Have you found a solution?

    I've posted this before and nobody seemed to take note, so I will say it once again. Check for your TCC being stuck "on". My 09 ESV wouldn't actually stall, but it nearly did every single time we would come off the freeway or stop at a light on the highway. Especially after driving at highway speeds for 45+ minutes. Never a prob in city traffic. Anyways, they replaced something called transmission control valve body (I think that was the name or something close to that) $950 at the dealer and the truck now runs amazing. Haven't had a single issue since and we have taken it on numerous 7 hour+ trips. Hope this might help.
