2005 Mistubishi Lancer ES won't Idle, stalls...help

Died 2 days ago while I was parked with car on. Had to keep the RPMs above 1000 or it would die. Engine light came on..so I limped it into Autozone..and they said
MAF and IACV ...error codes with their scanner
So I bought MAF cleaner..
Cleaned MAF, Throttle Body...

Still stalls, still rides like ****.
Had to get to work this am..hah..zip tied throttle cable tight at 1000 rpms..
Runs now, hah, although I'd like to fix the problem..which is?

Bad iacv? hope not, cheapest one I could find is $370.00

unrelated or related..
My A.C...started making a loud click when on.
I opened hood...again... to see what looked like the compressor locking up, then releasing..
could the compressor be slowing down the belt? and killing the idle?
or is this just a new problem.

I dont want to mess anything up..with my zip tie fix...So help me fast..Please..

Thanks, Josh

Have tried tried changing the inline fuel filter. If I remember correctly it is in the tank, but I had issues with mine not getting above 20 mph and have almost no acceleration.Come to find out, it was my fuel filter that was so clogged that almost no fuel was making it to the injectors.

How to check the idle speed? my car stalls at the light


Hello Patricia Kennedy.

Besides a dirty air filter... listed below... idle air control valve... the idle speed is pretty tamper proof...

If the car has not been tuned up RECENTLY... that would be a STRONG recommendation before fine-tuning the idle speed.

The problem I am seeing ALL OVER the web... is the idle is too fast... (absolutely will cause STALLS).

All things being reasonable... your tachometer should show an RPM OF 650 to 1000 rpm... above that is quite EXCESSIVE...

A real TUNE-UP MANUAL would be required to properly set the SPEED ... but only after EVERYTHING had been serviced, cleaned and replaced...

Tuning up a car with DIRTY FILTERS & WORN spark plugs is an WASTE of MONEY!!

What I am seeing EVERYWHERE... is a HIGH IDLE problem... (above 2000 RPMs... That will ABSOLUTELY cause your car to stall at a STOP... because your TORQUE CONVERTER is designed to lock up (quit acting like a clutch)...

If your idle speed it above 1000 rpm... that WAS a BIG RECALL issue for GM engines...

Check out the links below... a high idle can stall an engine better than a low one...!!

Comment me back if I am not being particularly clear... or wwatch some of the videos I have attached.

Good luck.

How to adjust idle


Should idle between 550 or 650 RPMs. If it wont stay running under 1000 RPMs there is something wrong. Idling at or above 1000 RPMs it' going to be slamming into forward and reverse.

Hello, I read your problem, and a lot of the symptoms you are describing seem like itmis possible, that you have a bad 02 sensor, this is part of your emissions, relating to the cadilac converter, it mostly acts up at lower speeds, like coming to a stop or slowing to make a corner. Sometimes also a bad fuel filter could cause this when rpms are down such as slowing or on corners. That is the two things I would check. Thanks mike

If a mouse chewed the wire into you may need to check all the wires. It sounds like you need to check the operation of the idle air control valve and it's wiring circuit. Good fortune!
