Question about 1992 Mercury Topaz

1 Answer

Ringing noise coming from engine area while my 1992 Mercury Topaz is idling in drive, reverse, or while wheel is turned.

Buddy of mine said it could be the harmonic balancer? Sound goes away if car is moving, or car is placed in neutral. Doesn't do it while idling in park unless the wheel is being turned one way or the other.

Any help, and wisdom would be greatly appreciated!!

How do i turn up my idle


idle is preset at the factory .. but some cars are equipped with an air conditioner adjuster . which will actually speed up the engine when you turn on the AC .. look at it when you start the AC and you will see it is adjustable to speed up the engine some ... thanks Jerry

I had the same problem. It was the idle air control valve. It sits on top of the intake just downstream from the throttle. There's a valve rod inside that gets worn over time and starts to stick. If that's what is causing your problem, you need to replace the unit.
