Car wont idle - Montero Sport Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks

    I work at UPS and the mechanic at work says its probably the throttle position sensor... but I dont know where the sensor is located or how to change it. Sometimes the car won't idle at all... its a 5 spd and sometimes even just shifting between gears it dies. It runs great as long as I keep my foot on the gas... but that isnt always possible. Every once in a while it will idle a little high... right around 2000, but most of the time if it idles at all its under 1000. I recently had to replace the fuel pump... but other than that i've had no problems with it. Its a great car and I just want to keep it on the road for as long as possible.

How to set idle for 1984 mustang 3.8L, 6cyl


Technically the idle speed is not adjustable. The computer controls idle speed with the idle speed control motor.
Base idle is around 500 RPM with normal idle in park at 800.

89 dodge shadow. hard start. normal idle cold, fast idle warm. sometimes it wont start until i hear fuel pump activate.


Hello,
The car may be hard to start because it may need a normal tune-up. If the spark plugs are pretty used, they will slowly stop burning as much fuel because the spark slowly gets lesser and lesser. On a cold day the fuel is harder to ignite with a small amount of spark.
Normal idle when its cold means that your cars idle is probably too high. If you lower the idle, the choke on a cold day will keep the idle a little higher until the motor warms and then it will kick back off. If the idle is too high, it will run very rich, smothering itself with fuel, and causing the idle to stay low. When the car warms, its creating better spark when its warm, and with the idle being too high its running at a fast idle.
The car wont start sometimes can be the cause of a few things. If the ground is bad on the fuel pump, it wont make a good connection sometimes for when you turn the key on, the fuel pump dont pump the fuel to the engine. Another one can be that your accessory switch can be loose going to the fuel pump. I think its your ground though. Good luck! Hope this helps.
Have a nice day. -Steve
