i have a 94 2.0L and im having a problem with keeping the engine running at the idle position. when i start the car the engine just stalls right way with no throttle, but if i hold the throttle down when cranking the engine it will run, but i have to keep the throttle applied at about 2000rpm to keep it running. no CEL when the engine is running. CEL is only on when the ignition is in the on postion. so i got codes and i only read 2-1-1-1. i remember someone saying you will always get 2-1-1-1 when the engine isn't running either the engine speed or cam position sensor can't remember, so i don't think its any of those. anyone have any ideas.

Re: engine stalls at idle (olds kool 84)

Could be a small vacuum hose on top of the Throttle body/manifold that might be dislodged
