When I crank my truck it runs wide open for a minute of so and then it starts to idle down. What causes this? It is a 1992 Chevy S10 v6 pickup. How can I fix this problem? I have no manuel on this vehicle for a diagram of the engine at all.

Thank you. Dave

Sounds like the fast idle screw needs to be adjusted on the throttle body or if it has an IAC, it may need to be replaced. A little more info on the vehicle might help to narrow it down.

Do this

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.

It is the gasket underneath the throttle body. It is being sucked in at one corner causing a big air leak which caused the engine to idle at about 2500 rpms. You will probably have to buy a throttle body repair kit which will include a new gasket. This should fix the problem. You didn't mention engine size, but I think the 2.8 v6 is the engine that had this gasket problem.

Chevy s10 engine running fine then idles real fast all by itself


Your going to have to get the ECM scaned, there are to many things that can cause that. most places like Auto Zone or Part Source can scan your S 10 free of charge and can also give a how to's if you want to replace the part your self.
Good luck and hope this helps

Idles fast


Most likely an air leak/vacuum hose problem. There could also be an issue with the throttle body base gasket. The 4.3 engines are known to rev a little high but a small air leak can make them rev really high when they should not.

Idles to fast


Sounds like a vaccum leak at the throttle body or the intake. check for loose lines hissing with the motor running. Had a brake booster line come loose on my 92 and it ran at about 3000 rpms.
