Question about 1990 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Very high idling

Vehicle has a mind of its own. It idles sometimes 4000 rpms, then drops. At times it seems like i have cruise control on while driving. Have lubricated all of the linkage that i can find. Not sure on what to check. Could it be the TPS or Idle ControlValve. Please help.

Hi, try disconnecting the linkage from the butterfly shaft on the carb. You should be able to turn this shaft thru a quarter turn by hand, and self return by means of the spring. If this is not free it may well be your problem. Is it a twin throat carb? then check that the secondary butterfly is closing fully in the throttle "off" position.

2001 Cadillac DeVille RPMs revving dying


battery not charging , means the charging system is not working , Doesn't mean the battery is bad . The charging system on your vehicle is computer controlled , If the BCM doesn't see the correct voltage , it will raise the idle RPM to over come any load on the system . Probably has DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM or PCM , These codes do not always turn on the money light ( check engine ) . Your best bet , take it to the Cadillac dealer , auto zone or any of those has no clue about this . Oh also it will shut down systems . http://www.esghotwire.com/0213_Pit.pdf
Battery symbo - Charging System Indicators

BATTERY NOT CHARGING - 7Charging System Indicators

BATTERY NOT CHARGING - 7
The IPC illuminates the BATTERY NOT CHARGING - 7 indicator in the DIC when the PCM detects a malfunction with the generator output. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM requesting illumination.

I work for Cadillac , have for over thirty year's . Have seen people mess this stuff up big time . So do yourself an take to one of my fellow tech's.

Electrical Load Management
The power management function is designed to monitor the vehicle electrical load and determine when the battery is potentially in a high discharge condition. This is accomplished by using a high accuracy battery voltage reading as an indicator of battery discharge rate. The following six levels of load management will execute in the load management control algorithm when there is a high discharge condition:
The first action requests a vehicle idle speed increase to the powertrain control module (PCM) in order to raise alternator output.
The second action requests a greater vehicle idle speed increase to the PCM in order to raise alternator output.
The third action begins to shed vehicle loads in an attempt to remedy the heavy discharge condition.
The fourth action requests another vehicle idle speed increase to the PCM in order to raise further the alternator output.
The fifth action begins to shed further vehicle loads in an attempt to remedy the heavy discharge condition.
If the above five corrective actions fail, the sixth action of power management further sheds loads in a final attempt to remedy the high discharge condition.
Loads subject to reduction include the following:
• The A/C clutch
• The heated mirrors
• The heated seats
• The rear defog
• The HVAC blowers
The power mode master (PMM) calculates the battery temperature, voltage and charging rate at all times while the engine is running. The PMM calculates the battery temperature by factoring in:

99 mercury sable automatic trans vehicle idles very low randomly even stalls out sometimes high idle occurs as well reaches about 4000 rpm at times. engine light threw 4 codes, all to do with o2 sensors...


Sounds like a broken or torn vacum hose, pcv valve clogged, or bad Idle air control motor. Did you spray carb cleaner on vacum hoses or near the plastic intake., and did the motor rev up or down? Those codes represent a lean condition which means most like a vacum leak or clogged idle air motor. Sometimes the intake manifolds crack or the intake manifold gaskets crack. FInd that vacum leak or inpect iac motor
