Loud idle running hot in park but not in drive


double posted
post RPM in both modes,
it must be the same
the ISC idle controls system controls idle at all times.
post RPM. 800 is normal. the exact valve is in the FSM
and posted under the hood in USA.
no country stated in 4000s posts so.... well, gee....
here, open the hood, look up, see EPA vacuum map
that is also the the engine size and type , and most state the normal
hot RPM clearly there, and is in the FSM.

here is the acid test. hot.
in park hot, rpm 800 if not the ISC fuction is dead
"idle speed controls"
good? yes.
then select drive. if RPM drops ISC is malfing.
now back to park. (all this is in the FSM to read)
now 800 hot. you turn on all heavy electrical loads
the rpm does not drop. Head lights + heater fan, and defrost.
all these test he ISC, if it fails its bad.
what does bad mean, that means its out of control
and you do further testing to find the reasons.

vast reasons.
Ill name 3:
intake air leaks. aka vacuum leaks.
ISC valve dirty , clean it.
throttle cables , misadjusted.
cold start air valve stuck open hot.

When I start the car it stays at 2000rpm for a few moments then drops down. I'll drive for a few minutes then put it in park and it revs up and down.


idle air control valve is bad replace it. at start up choke control runs till warm up while driving throttle opening controls engine at idle ,the idle air control valve.

Idle drops way down in drive gear in park it's fine or running the A/C


what car is this, could be normal or not depending, like my 73 nova dogs down when put in gear but its suppose to with a 3 speed turbo. if its a newer car its not. and would sudject checking transmission fluid/filter or even replace both. if your fuild is low or old the transmission wont slip as easy and will make you car work harder to idel while sitting still.

I have 2000 V8 LS thatruns rough in park and at idle in drive.


That is normal.
If you rev it in park it will not rev over 3500 rpm before it hits the rev limiter.
