    Late last year I replaced the water pump and timing belt
    on my 3.0 l 97 Voyager. Since then, it will occasionally stall
    when you first put it in gear and give it too much gas. When
    I drive it, it isn't a problem. I am just light on the throttle
    for the first couple of minutes. This doesn't work to well
    with my son, who seems to stall it all the time. Where should
    I start looking? Is it likely to be a vacuum problem? On an
    older car I'd be looking at the choke and the idle setting.

    To me, it seems like it is idling to low when it is first started?
    Would the coolant temp sensor cause this kind of problem?

    If it's idling too low. I'd put money that your electrical timing is too
    retarded. Get a timing light and check you timing. The only other possibility
    is that your automatic idle control motor might not be working properly as

    Idle control motor? What does it look like? Where is it located?
    Somewhere on the near the throttle cables? Perhaps I have a bad
    connector. I had the entire intake manifold off to replace the
    coolant return tube.

    Timing seems correct.

    it is located on the throttle body. There are two sensors on the throttle body.
    The throttle position sensor, which is on the axis of the throttle plate. and
    the automatic idle motor. It's located on the bottom of the throttle body
