Remove the air cleaner intake tube and buy some throttle body cleaner spray on a rag open throttle manually and clean the most carbon you can from around the flap. If you remove the throttle body and clean it outside of vehicle it will be much better. If the intake is plastic then you will have rubber o ring behind throttle body no need to replace it is reusable. If the intake is aluminum then it will have paper gasket and the possibilitys of breaking it is high. So if you decide to remove make sure someone has gasket in stock whether its dealer or local autoparts.
Idle air control is built in to throttle body it gets excessive carbon deposits if you use low octane fuel like (87) when it fills with carbon it restricts the air amount at closed throttle and cause car to shut off. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more questions.
Look at the Idle Air Control first. Also, make sure the air filter is clean; if it's really loaded, you won't get enough air to run with a closed throttle. Check the throttle body idle air intake passage(s) to make sure they are clear.
Check for vacuum leaks at intake, and snorkel. Moniter short term fuel trims. Check Freeze frame of when code P102 sets. Make sure you are using stock air filter system aftermarket filters cause havoc.
The low coolant light could be caused by trapped air in the cooling system. If the mechanic didn't doa diagnostic scan, that needs to be done. Even though the service eng. light didn't stay on continuously, there could be stored codes in the computer.
there not suppose to be any adjutments made for idle. high idle is usualy caused by a problem the computer is trying to confresate for something by keeping idle high ,check see if check eng light is on .check for bad coolant sensor corroted batt cables,poor battery connections, 02 sensors functions.if you really want to take down idle there is a small screw on throddle body in some model look for a air screw ,a large straight edge screw near air intke or on throddle body .but i dont recomend adjusting idle unless you ve fixed the problem that causing the pcm to raise the idle to prevent stalling of the eng
Your mechanic did a good test by externally adding more fuel to the engine. The fact that the addition of the extra fuel to the engine changed the engines behavior would suggest he is on the right track.
So did you replace the timing set first, or after ,it would not start after the intake was replaced. Replacing just the intake would not alter the timing components. The intake is a pretty straight forward job. Does the engine have spark? fuel pressure? The injectors should have power on one side with the key on,check one do they? All wires connected to ign coils? ground wires hooked up? Does the CK. ENG light come on with key on? have ALL fuses been checked?
I would trash the cold air intake, the filters that it uses lets dirt through, and thats what kills engines. If you want long life, stay away from any type of non stock add ons. there is no way to have more power without shorting engine life.
depends if yours has the flat panal filter or the round type both can be changed for a k&n performance filter wear you never ever replace it again only clean and re-oil at every service
the round type is on the front lower side pass side 3 spring back clips hold the front cover on
the panal filter is squire and has 3 or 4 spring back clips just lift the lid and change
