Adjust idle


Before i would adjust idle i would first check the timing. It should idle at or around 750 rpm. Secondly depending on how many miles you have put on the spark plugs i would also consider changing them. Changing spark plugs i a time consuming job. The ladt two plugs neareast the firewall are really hard to get out and when you put the plugs back in use a plug lubricant for the threads.

I have a 96 nissan maxima. It idles at about 1300 in park and 900 in drive. A friend suggested changing the spark plugs. Does this sound like a solution?


No spark plugs only produce spark to ignite the fuel mixture and do not control idle speed. Run fault codes to determine if there is a sensor fault as it should be idling around 900 rpm at idle and stay close to 900 in drive as the ECM will adjust the idle rpm to compensate for the extra load. Nissan maxima use special plugs that do not need changing

My 1993 jeep grand cherokee laredo idles rough after warm up. it also idels high around 2000 rpm at start up sometimes and needs to be shut off and restarted to calm idle speed. whats is causing the...


usually rough Idle is not noticable at high ildle. Once it is idles normally try Disconnecting one injector at a time. If the idle stays the same than that cylinder is the culprit. Remove that spark. If it is wet than do a compression test. Should read better than 100lbs of compression.If compression is good take a spark plug and hook it into the end of the plug wire.Lay it across the intake,start the car and watch for spark. If you have spark than you probably have a bad injector. A miss will cause the vehicle to idle high. The computer is trying to keep the car from dieing out. Hope this helps. No spark do a tune up.

Shaking problem


possibly could you spark plug wires or distributor faulting you will need a mechanic or a manual to adjust the distributor or just get new spark plug wires

I have a 1987 Susuki Samurai, 1.3 engine. Cold start is idles at 2000 rpm up to 2200 rpm. Is this normal? Its seems a little fast. How do you adjust the cold fast idle speed? Thanks, Randy


Yeah it sounds kinda high. There is no adj except for the idle screw on the throttle, the computer does the rest, if it has one. If not, then you can adjust it some how. If carbureted, check for 2 little screws in the front, and check the choke, If throttle body, then just the idle screw, the idle should be around 1000. Hope this helps.

1992 ford f150 xlt- when first started idle jumps from very low to very high repeatedly until warm. then idle is high


try un-plugging the IAC motor,then start it,if it idles low and stays there then replace the IAC motor----if no change then you may have a knock in the engine and the knock sensor is telling the computer to change the timing to compensate for spark knock due to low grade fuel,so it advances the timing back and forth due to too high of rpm then too low and the computer doesnt know how to smoothen it out that fast,but eventually does.The check engine light would usually come on in this case
