Clean the throttle valve and air bypass valve, they are most likely full of gunk, after cleaning them disconnect the battery for a few and then drive for a day or two.

Idle fluctuating rpm check engine light


run the fault codes as the engine idle is being affected by a faulty sensor . The vibrations are probably because the idle rpm's are too low.

2010 ford fusion vibration at idle and acceleration.


Chances are its a minor miss in one of the cylinders. You don't feel it neutral at idle or until the trans goes into overdrive because those times the engine is not working very hard.
If it is a miss fire the check engine light will come on when it gets bad enough to affect fuel mileage.
If you have not yet changed the plugs I would start with that. There is also a chance you damaged the engine when it overheated.

RPM problem


Check and lube the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve,

This tiny electric motor is mount on top valve cover and close to the accelerator cable.

The function of IAC motor is to idle up the RPM when more load is added.

Example: A/C on,light on,stop light on and radio on.

A stuck IAC can be free by few soft tape on the body of the motor.

To lube the worm gear,you will need WD-40 to free up the old grease and lube white lithium grease.

Clean the electrical contacts with CRC electric part cleaner.

This electric motor is very expensive.

Please handle it with care.

This engine does not have a harmonic balancer. This is the cause of the rough in gear idle with the automatic transmission.

My car threatens to die during idling...the rpm drops down low and then goes back to normal. It started doing this during driving too. I just had the fuel filter and a few other fuel related things...


Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
