Does the engine stall? if not the motor mount is the issue, it is allowing engine vibration to be sent along the frame to the driver, the mounts have 2 functions, the 1st is of course to hold the engine in place, the 2nd is to isolate the vibration from the driver, engines vibrate allot, but if all the mounts are good you seldom feel it.

Wont idle rite runs real ruff


Could be low idle and needs raised but may be the IAC sensor. Take off air intake assembly and clean the throttle body real good. Let it air out and then put assembly back on and try.

Where is Idle control valve located and how do you know if it's bad? My 1994 Toyota pick is idleing ruff and skips a little while running down the road. I've changed the plugs and wires also had the head...


Idle air control valve only controls air into the engine while idling. If your vehicle is running rough and skips, its misfiring. Make sure that the new plugs are properly gapped and timing is set right on the distributor side, intake hose isnt leaking. Re-inspect the sparkplugs for fouling (black, burnt, brown etc). if ok, have the computer scanned for the error at autozone (free). Post the code online...hopefully this helpd
