Low idle rpm up and down

To solve your distributor oil problem you unfortunately need to replace the distributor assemble. It is not serviceable.

94 nissan altima won't start and iddle after cleaning IACV valve


An IAC (idle air control) motor is designed to adjust the engine idle RPM speed by opening and closing an air bypass passage inside the throttle body. The cars computer or PCM (powertrain control module) receives information from various sensors and will output signals to adjust the idle air control motor in or out to adjust engine idle speed by controlling engine idle air. An idle air control motor can fail one of two ways, either the motor short circuits and stops working or the motor will develop high resistance and cause the idle air control motor to react slowly, either failure can cause the engine to stall at idle. When a trouble code scan is performed it sometimes won't always detect a failed or weak idle air control motor.

If i turn on my a/c my car will be shaking


It can also be your throttle body is really dirty, bad sensor.When you turn the air on, does the engine speed increase, especially according to the tachometer? if not,I would check the simple stuff.Have you had any tuneup work done lately?If not,you might want to checkout the tune up items.Distributor cap,ignition rotor,spark plugs and plug wires.Sounds like you are overdue for a tune up the idle is supposed to increase when the ac is turned on. it is possible this is not working or the idle is too low. the car have compensation systems to increase the rpm when the AC is loading the engine, and slowing it down. Newer cars idle speed often isn't adjustable, so the problem's in the ECM (computer) or a sensor. does the car idle on correct RPM, should be around 700 with no AC on. If its run below 700, you might need to adjust your rpm up, however, try to get a tune up first and get the RPM to the proper spec. if the engine already running low RPM, it will drag the engine idle down very low which will cause the engine to shake or stall.

CAR RUNS GREAT, STARTED DIEING WHEN A/C WAS TURNED ON, NOW A FEW DAYS LATER IT DIES EVEN WITHOUT A/C ON, RUNS BUT WILL NOT IDLE


CHECK IDLE SPEED SHOULD BE 650 - 850 RPM. IF IDLE TOO LOW AC WILL PUT DRAG SLOW DOWN ENGINE CAUSING ENGINE TO STALL IF IDLE SPEED IS TOO LOW.

Got a 99 Nissan Altima 2.4, t-chain broke... replaced head and all t-components... start up surging idle and whistling off idle... engine runs smooth and great power off idle


the surging and whistling sounds like there might be a vacuum leak that is causing this.recheck all vacuum lines and surfaces were this is a gasket that seals a vacuum source.smooth running and good power off idle suggest this leak only affects the motor at a low(idle)rpm.

I have this problem for quite a bit. The idling speed when engine started cold is between 700-800 rpm. As the engine gets hotted idling rpm increase to almost 1000rpm. If idling is adjusted back, the rpm...


There appears to be a thermal movement of choke mechanism that comes about once vehicle is warmed up. Check the chock connections, hot water pipe and linkages tight or clear.

94 Camry idling is low


have your IAC valve (idle air control valve)checked, replace or cleaned. Clean intake with carb/intake cleaner including MAF sensor(V-6 only). Hopefully this helps

Engine idling varies depending on light or aircon is on/off


dude its normal for first start or cold start that the idle is ok but it must high than normal... its normal because the engine is warming up it self... when it gets warm, the idle speed will return normal idle... your engine is 1200cc, it has not much HP for a great load... and i know its a carburatored engine and its an old engine, your head lyt and a/c fan and aux fan and all the electrical system on your car, uses the HP of you engine and its a lot of load to the alternator driven by the engine to generate an electricity they need and thats why the engine rpm speed lowering down to dead and its shake. thats why when you use your lyts or all electrical, you engine is weakening... the best remede is adjusting you idle speed... its located behind the carburator.. its a small black knob.. just make a twist each eighter way and you'll find out if your idle rpm speed ts incresing or decresing.. just increase it and try opening your lyts and other electrical, if its still shaking then adjust it a little more
