is the check engine light on ? if it idling high chances are you have a vacuum leak take a can of carb cleaner and spray the egr valve and if the engine rpm changes replace egr valve the throttle body may also be plugged pull the vacuum line off the map sensor start vehicle and see if you have vacuum if not remove throttl body and clean vacuum passage hope this helps

Not sure if this will help. I have seen this happen!!! remove the cover under the steering column and locate the ignition switch. Get a flash light. You really need a flash light to see this. Set the E-Brake real good. While watching the ignition switch. (actual SWITCH not where the Key goes) . Turn the key back and forth with out starting and see if the switch is loose. (it has 2 hex head screws in it ) and is like 4 inches long with a bunch of wires in it and mounted the passenger side of the column under dash. If you cant see it move then try removing it from park and see if it moves. The switch is mounted on slotted holes. and if it is loose it will only move with the legnth of the column or front to back of vehicle. any ways if it is loose there is a way to put it back right ... as fallows:
key needs to be in the off position. loosen screws 1/2 turn each,
use your finger to push the switch up towards the key but not force it. like pushing a key on a key board. Tighten both screws and check it out. This seems like a long process to go through but it costs nothing but time.

A vehicle that old will suffer from brittle and cracked vacuum lines. I would say there is a bad, or several bad lines leaking away vacuum from the intake manifold. Don't forget to check the hose going to the PCV on the valve cover. A vacuum leak will also cause the engine to stumble and miss intermittently when idling.

SOURCE: my 1988 chevy s10 idles but when accelerating has

check the fuel pressure to determine that the fuel pump is still good. there should be a schrader valve with a plastic cap on it on the fuel supply line that goes to the throttle body or if you have one fuel injector per cylinder, you will have a fuel rail that feeds each injector that will have the schrader valve that you screw the fuel pressure tester on. most fuel injection systems run 30 to 40 psi, but check a service manual or call a dealer to get the correct psi for your vehicle. if the fuel pressure is within specs, it sounds like the MAF (mass air flow) sensor is the culprit.

Check your IAC motor (Idle Air Control) It could be sticking open.
Ps. Might be called Idle Speed Control motor it depends on the make and i forget what chevy calls theres.

Too fast an idle speed. If an engine without computerized idle speed control is idling too fast and refuses to come down to a normal idle speed despite your best efforts to back off the carburetor idle speed screw or air bypass adjustment screw (fuel injection), air is getting past the throttle somewhere. Common leak paths include the carburetor and throttle body gaskets, carburetor insulator spacers, intake manifold gaskets, and of course, any of the engine's vacuum fittings, hoses and accessories. It is even possible that leaky O-rings around the fuel injectors are allowing air to leak past the seals. Another overlooked item can be a worn throttle shaft and a defective idle speed speed control motor/valve stuck in the extended (high idle speed) position/throttle position sensor. Also the throttle plate could be binding in its bore and kinked accelerator cable, coolant temperature sensor might not be operating properly misleading the computer that the engine is still cold and computer throwing fuel at it raising the idle speed.----------

Getting this possibilities checked will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

With temperature related problems, check your intake manifold bolts for tightness. Our intakes are plastic and have a tendency to become loose, causing vacuum leaks. When it warms up, the plastic intake will expand sealing any leaks. But when it's cold, will contract, causing leaks. Easiest to check are cylinder #5 & 6 near the fire wall.

Also, clean your throttle body, a dirty throttle body will cause idle problems, especially in TB's because we don't have a true PCV valve, so gets dirty which causes sticking of the butterfly.

I have a 2006 Solara that idles too fast. The mechanical adj. is all the way out. How can I get the idle down to around 8-900?? The car pulls itself uphill w/o any gas pedal. Thanks, Steve


on most of the newer cars theyre is no idle adjustment it is controlled by the ecm. if you do not have a check light on you may have a vacum leak or a throttel position sensor problem you will have to connect to a diagnostic tester to find out what the computer is being told .

Check the base plate gasket under the throttle body, some time the gasket start to leak, and will cause a high idle, if possible with engine running get some water and pore it at the base of the throttle bode, you will hear a suction sound, that's the gasket, replace it.

Vaccum hose diagram for 88 chevy truck. I put a 350 motor in my 88 chevy 1500 truck from a 95 suburban. I cant get the throttle body to stop idaling to high. I may need a vaccum line diagram for this motor...


it may not be a vacumn leak from a line,check the throttle shaft for movement,for example,i had a 89 1 ton 350 and my throttle shaft was moving around a lot and in order to keep it from idling high,i had to kick the throttle pedal.But also check the idle air control valve,which is the round sensor on the side of the throttle body.
