I had the same problem. I changed the throttle position sensor (TPS). I haven't had any trouble since I replaced mine about three months ago.

I would check your Idle air control, this is a common problem, that usually causes this exact thing, Hope I have helped you! Merry Christmas!

I have a 2005 grand prix gt temp guage reads normal and heat is on and warm when start driving heat gets colder or if i change to defrost its cold air doeasnt stay hot car doesnt over heat though changed...


The heating coil is probably getting plugged up. You may have heat at idle or slow speeds, but once you get going, there is not enough coolant going through it to stay warm. Get the system flushed or replace the heating coil.

Engine problem idle speed


Hi goodafternoon,
I think the problem is your thermostat is bad, because I had similar issue that the rpm would be normal and then rpm goes up by itself for a while without any warning. I got an accident because of this in the winter. Hope this helps.

What is the rpm on a 1995 z71 4x4 with a 5.7 should be at when it is in park any one know that ???


Normal idle speed in park is around 750rpm.
The code means there is a problem with the idle air control valve in that the computer can not control the idle speed. Sometimes it is the valve, but it can also be a wiring problem, dirt or sludge in the throttle body, a vac leak, or other issues.

Got trouble code p0125. Car starts then idles way low then climbs back to regular idle. What is the problem?


I have a 96 Towncar, which had a P0125 trouble code set. I changed the thermostat and cleared the code - only to have it reset in a couple minutes after starting. The car was hard starting, and died several times before it actually ran. I did also noticed that while running the idle speed had risen to over 950 RPM.

I changed the Temperature sending unit located next to the thermostat housing, and again cleared the code. After starting the car again it performed excellently and did not reset the P0125 trouble code.

sounds like a catalytic converter - runs good but lacks power - the back pressure keeps the engine from being able to accelerate under load - good luck :O)

What is the idle speed for a chevy express 1500 2005 at the time of a tune up.


you never adjust the idle speed, it is computer controlled, if there is a problem then you must clean or replace the idle speed control valve and the throttle valve (clean only), final idle speed with a clean control valve is around 575 RPM

I have a high idle/overheating 1989 Toyota Carona GLXi 2.0 litre DOHC fuel injected. (New Zealand/Japanese import) I have 2 problems, and probably related. the car is overheating (heaters have stopped...


Check the hoses - especially all the little 10mm hoses that connect vacuum pipes, etc.
There is a device in the throttle body called an Idle Stabilisation Valve - they get gummed up, especially on such an old car, and with NZ's low-petroleum fuel - lots of additives in NZ gas.
They are easy enough to clean - look for a lead plugged into the throttle body near the butterfly - you can unclip it and pull it out complete - they are usually about 15cm long, by about 4cm wide.
Spray it liberally with carb cleaner and make sure it can move freely. If not, a wrecker is the best bet - they are pricey new.
Good luck.

1999 Lincoln Continental 4.6 32v engine...idles smooth in park & in gear. In park I get a engine miss when revved to 4000rpm. Also seem/feels like I have a miss at lower engine speed when being driven....


hello, i first must ask why that engine would EVER be reved to 4000 RPM? it is likely you are up against the rev-limiter and your ignition is made not to over rev. be very careful....4000 RPM on that engine could/will severly damage your tourque convertor........very expensive it is common for the EGR passages on that model to plug up with carbon, remove valve, clean ports, and retest for low speed miss/hesitation, good luck....marty
