Question about 2004 GMC Envoy

RUNS ROUGH WHEN AIR TURNED ON, LOOSE RPM'S

When I turn the ac on, if the engine is at idol, it will actually drop my RPM's so low that it kills my engine. It is somewhat affected by turning the heat on but majorly affected by the AC blower. I can only use my AC if I am driving more than about 15 mph so the RPM's stay high.
Also, I have an issue with the instrument panel occasionally. Without any known cause, I will occasionally turn my car on to find the gauges flickering and completely unresponsive. I will drive for a few miles while they flicker at the zero position and they will beep as if I just turned my key to the ignition position and they will all return to the proper positions.
Any ideas? When I turn the ac on, if the engine is at idol, it will actually drop my RPM's so low that it kills my engine. It is somewhat affected by turning the heat on but majorly affected by the AC blower. I can only use my AC if I am driving more than about 15 mph so the RPM's stay high.

Hi..my 2009 1.3 toyota avanza had a idle problem when the a/c turn on.idle goes up and down and click sound on and off of the aircond compressor.normal idle if i turn ac off.what could the problem be.


there is an idle up solenoid on the the carburetor. adjust the idle speed at 800-900rpm. RPM up and down is due to a/c compressor engaging. if the rpm drops too low, a/c compressor disengages. observe your idle speed with engine warmed up, turn on airconditioner and adjust the idle compensating vacuum diaphragm adjustng screw underneath the carburetor to the same rpm when a/c was off. that should correct your rpm problem

Why is it that when i turn on my ac my car idol drops low and the car turns off


If you gassed the ac system your self then it mat be overfull and that is why it is not working and if you did no check for leaks (why else would need gas) then it may be all pumped out . The AC compressor takes a lot of power to drive and all cars loose around 300rpm's when it cuts in so if you have an idle too low then it will drop below needed idle rpm's . Most cars have a compensating unit the raises the idle rpm when the ac is working so check out your system for a faulty unit there.

Cold start low ideling


You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Overheating problem, what is the most probable cause?


You need to stop using it immediately before you
cause some damage or more than you may already have
That is just common sense. It should not overheat or
be any different than it was in the past without problem

The car has to be checked over/diagnosed,tested,etc for
various issues to resolve

Borrow or Rent a car until resolved

No way to guess at the problem

You should have some type of codes avail even
if the check light isn't on,you need professional help
to get a start on resolving

The timing belt maybe worn & jumped or the head gasket
bad.

Over heating isn't usually a cheap repair unless the thermostat
sticks partially closed

The RPM moves around the car is 11 years old,so it may just
need a though going over

Timing Belt,O2 Sensors,Exhaust Converter,Spark Plugs
and such

If you depend on a repair shop to do things & don't
have the knowledge to request work done throughout
the year,then you run into a lack of proactive preventative
maintenance situation. Most things are simple looking
back, once resolved

When starting my 95 camaro and the rpm drops to idol my car vibrates like it is not getting enough gas and acts like it will shut off


Is the RPM correct,should be 800RPM, You have a MAF (mass air flow) and a MAP sensor,also a IAC.(Idle air control) Depending on the engine size you have both a MAP and MAF, so basically you need to inspect for a broken vacuum line at the MAP sensor,you also need to look for false air,which is a broken vacuum hose affecting the idle.3_17_2012_3_31_56_am.jpg

When first starting the 2000 jeep grand cherokee the oil pressure is fine, after driving 15 to 20 miles when you stop the oil pressure guage indicates the pressure dropping near 10 pds or less and the...


When the pressure reads low, are you hearing any knocking or tapping noises from the engine? If so, you may have worn engine bearings. I'd check the actual pressure by having a mechanical gauge installed on it in order to determine the actual pressure (your gauge is electro-mechanical and not quite as accurate) If pressure is actually that low the oil pan must be removed and bearings, oil screen etc need to be checked.
The reason pressure is always higher at first is that when cold the oil itself is thicker...as it gets hot and thins out pressure will drop somewhat, but should not go that low. Only other thing that can affect pressure in that way would be either a bad sending unit (you will know that after testing) or gasoline contamination in oil (happens if an injector is not working properly)
Good luck with it!

1992 chevy blazer idols too low when engine is cold it idols around 800 rpm but when it warms up it drops down to around 400 rpm n alittle lower when i put it in gear


The problem is in the idle air control motor. It is mounted on the throttle body with two bolts, you can pull it off and make sure it is not caked with carbon also check where it mounts on the throttle body and make sure it is not caked with carbon.

2003 Nissan Altima, Air condition makes loud noise when the unit is turn on. It slows down where u cant almost hear it after you turn the fan off.


When you put your A/C on, there is Vacum Motor or Solonoide, that increases RPM of the Engine to compensate the load of an A/C. If the vacum hose is leaking or raptured the RPM of Engine remain low and Engine Shakes. When you put the A/C on and the RPM of Engine Increases, but a little, then your Selonoide is working but not adjusted properly, so adjust it for the proper RPM of the Engine. Put all the loads on, I mean Head Lights and A/C on and then ajust the RPM.
