car cuts off when idling, have replaced fuel pump and filter, when car cuts off I usually have to wait 10 min. before it will start again, usually have to drive with one foot on the brake and one on the gas,now "cruise control not available" light comes on. Have cleaned throttle body and changed spark plugs as well. Took it to firestone, they said lower intake manifold gasket has a leak. I don't think thats the problem. Please help.

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Tommy, A failed intake manifold can cause these drivability concerns, you may want to seek a second opinion if you feel otherwise. A faulty Idle air control valve can cause this concern as well.
