SOURCE: 1999 KIA Sportage idling too fast

You might want to go to your local AutoZ to have them hook it up to a code reader and give you any trouble codes that may exist, but chances are you problem is going to lie with one of three things. The first thing I would check is the Mass Airflow Sensor(MAS). The MAS sensor is usually connected to the plastic breather tube that runs to the air filter. The next thing I would check would be your Idle-Air Control Valve. Not too sure where Kia put their IACV's at, but AZ's website should have vehicle specific repair info through Alldata for your Kia. The last thing that I would check if you still haven't fixed the problem would be your EGR valve. Other than that, the only other thing that I can think of would be your throttle positioning sensor, but this possibility is least likely. Hope this helps guide you in the right direction. Have a great day!

SOURCE: 1995 Chev S10 4.3L V6 rough idle and under power

This make/model has a chronic problem with EGR clogging. If you have a dashboard indicator showing "check engine" most likely it is a trouble code indicating and EGR (exhaust gas recirculator) valve problem. Symptoms are rough idle, and surging and stalls.

What happens is sediments from the exaust manifold get sucked up into the valve when it opens, then stick in the valve and keep it from closing. When the valve is open when it should be closed, the engine runs very rough.

I removed my egr and then dislodged the sediment (pea-sized debris) and then re-installed the valve. Three days later, the same "check engine" and same rough idle. I must have did this at least three or four more times.

What I found that gave me a permanent solution was an aftermarket filter gasket that keeps debris from clogging. I don't remember the name of the product, but a search for "EGR filter gasket" may lead you to the product.

Install the gasket between the EGR and the exhaust manifold and you should be good to go. Note: on 1995 and newer models, disconnecting the EGR from the wiring harness (common on R&R) may require the computer to be reprogramed.

SOURCE: will idle high sometimes up to 3000 rpms when driving or sitting still

I have the same Jeep and same problem. The engine was running rough. The Jeep dealer fixed a vacum problem in the manifold and they then decarbonized and cleaned the fuel injectors. After these repairs the idle problem began, it would spike to 2000 rpm while sitting at idle, sometimes it would slowly come down, sometimes I would have to tap the accelerator. I took it back in and they then replaced the throttle motor and reprogrammed the PCM (Power Control Module?) Still same problem. Now they suspect a another vacuum leak and I am taking it back in on Tuesday, will let you know what happens, $ 1,300 so far.

SOURCE: p1613 fault code & engine will not rev over

Crank sensor or engine speed sensor is faulty.

Fault:
Irregular power loss on accelerating
The speed of the engine is limited till 2500rpm
Frequent loss of crankshaft position sensor signal

Cause:
It is caused due to leaking from thermostat housing into crankshaft position sensor harness multi-plug

Remedy:
Check and clean the crankshaft position sensor harness multi-plug contacts. Rectify the engine coolant leak from the thermostat housing if found. Take a note of the engine coolant level and monitor it for changes, showing a leak is indeed occurring.

SOURCE: Ran my sportage out of oil. cleaned out engine

Time for a replacement engine. At the very least running it out of oil has done irreversable damage to the camshaft, and the clicking will only get worse, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but rebuild/replacement is going to be the only true fix.

No power at high rpm


I'm guessing but this sounds like air problems. do you have a new air filter? The O2 sensor may be off but not technically bad yet. I'm pretty much stuck on something restricting the air flow.

Give another solution to make my Honda Accord rev above 3000 rpms


you would have to go to a dealer to see factory settings. they can put it on a computer to set at what ever you are asking for most cars on high ways now have a factory setting by the goverment to only go so fast. but at 3000rpm sounds a lot to low try ambien air flow sensor. but if that was a problem you should be getting a code on the dash.

1997 acura cl 2.2 revs up to 1500 rpm and down to 1000 rpm just several seconds after start


Cars are design to run at a higher idle at start up to warm them up quick. There is a sensor that reads water temperature and tells your car's computer how fast to idle. Your RPMs seem slightly high but not out of the norm. Does idle ever drop to around 600/800 after about a minute? If not, your engine temperature sensor maybe defective.

1995 Grand Prix se 3.1L V6 rpms rev up high in park


Does the engine slow down in drive, or is it still running fast and trying to pull away from a stop ?
The problem could be a vac leak, or a sticking idle control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters thru the control valve.

Vacuum leak or fast idle sensor inside throttle body. Also check to make sure throttle cable and cruise control cable is not out of place on the cable roller/pulley on top of intake manifold.
