same here 600, so 500 isn't terrible. I wouldn't think low enough to be alarming

It drops from 500 to 450 then flutters and shuts off. Before the shutting off wasn't bad at all. Not it shuts off if I slow down to make a turn or hit a stop light.

ya it needs to be looked at ASAP.

I KNOW there are plenty of people on here that could be of way more help but not sure why they aren't responding. I tried :/ I don't know THAT much

It could also be a fluke and by changing up the programming of the ECU something just went poof. I wonder if she put in a performance tune in it if it would solve her stalling?

I told her she should have done a performance then from the start.

yeah I mean it's worth a shot but still doesn't help fixing the underlying problem. she still needs to get it looked at. it was shutting off intermittently before the tuner too. just got worse with it on
