If vehicle was left outside or in an unheated garage, there is a strong possibility that condensation has contaminated your fuel. Easiest way to check is to remove fuel filter and pour contents into a glass jar. If you see two different layers of liquid in the jar, the bottom part is water. Replace with new filter and drop the tank. Remove sending unit. pour contents into a large container and clean out inside with clean dry rags. Remember, fuel is dangerous to work with and fumes travel pretty far on the ground. So, no open flames electrical stuff, cigarettes etc for a good perimeter around work area. Generally, you can re-use top 3/4 of fuel you removed by syphon. Don't use remainder in your vehicle. Part can be used for lawnmower etc as long as you only take the part above the water line.

SOURCE: Rough idle

I had the same exact problem on my 2004 Colorado (3.5L). Cleaned the MAF sensor (with MAF sensor cleaner) and throttle body/plate - cleared it right up.

My 06 Chevy Equinox is idling high. How can you reduce the idle. It's at 3,000 RPMs just sitting still.


The number one cause for high idle is an imbalance in air pressure, An engine that is idling too high may be caused by a faulty idle air control motor valve that has completely failed or that has simply become weak and is not functioning correctly. God-Bless!

Zack, did the Engine light come on?? If you can get it over to one of the big-box auto parts stores, get them to check for any codes. May be Throttle position sensor (TPS), cracked hoses at connections.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

I am having a problem with the car turning on and off constantly and when driving on the freeway when i hit the excel orator it looses power to the gas peddal and comes back over and over again. while on...


It sounds like you have a loose connection to you coil packs. The speed sensors actually could be causing the problem also. If they are shorting out and shorting out the ECU then the car would die. And if they are just momentarily shorting, then it would cause this exact problem. When the car dies going down the freeway does the speedometer jump or the transmission act up?

06 Equinox won't run with A/C on. Runs fine with A/C off, but when we turn on the air the engine starts sputtering and dies. Check engine light has not come on. Anyone got a clue to what's wrong?


The ac maybe trying to lock up,if it effects the engine performance at ,lets say a 45 mile a hour run,then the ac compressor maybe trying to lock up,if it does not ,then it is a idle problem with the ac turned on,the computer is not idling up with the ac turned on.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

1998 Dodge Durango 318 V8. Engine won't idle. Car has been sitting. Battery was discharged - had to jump start. If you keep your foot on accelerator, engine runs smooth. Once you take it off, it dies....


Probably lost idle memory,all computer controlled keep it running for a period it should regain the idle memory if not make sure no rodent chew damage to wires to the throttle position sensor, if check engine light is on scan for faults.
