    97 Eldorado idles low at stop signs then stalls

    Just bought the car a week ago and that is the only issue..i cleaned all valves and replaced spark plugs and wires..i put all new everything under the hood. I have no check engine and no codes..car drives like its brand new..just cant figure out this issue..if i put it in neutral at stop lights it helps last about 30 seconds longer then the idle drops but it always starts right back up..i am lost on what to do.. Also 3 other mechanics looked at it and couldnt believe it was messing up sine it drives so well..someone please help

    ---------------------------

    check/clean the throttle body - and IAC - Idle Air Control valve -

    I have no check engine and no codes
    because you are new - and we don't know your level of knowledge -
    I have to ask if you are "pulling" the codes correctly? -
    using the OFF and WARMER buttons method -

    Check your fuel pressure, probably needs a pump.

    Also check to be sure your PCV hose in the rear cam cover is tight.
