I had to same problem. My engine would idle to fast when stopped. And when I drove, it would accelerate on its own. And if I took my foot off the gas the speed would increase.

My fix was a little piece of plastic called the THROTTLE SENSOR.

But be careful some aftermarkets don't work right and you'll have the same prob. Make sure its manufactured by GM

1993 toyota tercel,idles up and down at a fast constant rate.but runs well otherwise,no engine light on,checked all vaccuum,egr,throttle bod


If it tends to cut off when no gas given but sometimes idles up very fast & then slows back down, probably the idle air control valve. If so, will have to be replaced to fix.

When the car is first started the engine idles


If the throttle plate is closing completely, then this seems to be temperature dependent. Probably the intake manifold gasket. These GM engines were extremely prone to that. When the engine warms up, metal expands, and seals the leak. A good mechanic can check out the usual other culprits: cracked vacuum hoses, bad pcv or egr valve, idle air control motor, etc. Then, maybe a smoke test, when the engine is cold.
There was a giant class action suit on these engines for that problem, but payments ran out 2008. So, use high quality gaskets, (FelPro is excellent) the newly revised torquing procedure, and precoated bolts from GM. Don't use the GM orange coolant. It dissolves the gaskets. Good luck

1993 olds achieva-gears won't shift-what sensors on transmission


Had this problem when I rebuilt my engine. Turns out, that I had plugged back in a sensor that was previously unplugged. There is a known manufacturer's defect on some Achievas where a sensor on the transmission was mounted upside-down. Symptoms caused by this are primarily the car staying in gear (and thus stalling) when stopped, and failing to downshift while slowing down. Just unplug this pesky sensor, located roughly underneath and to the battery side of the throttle body. Be careful, though, because I don't know if running long term in this configuration will lead to transmission damage (although my transmission doesn't show any signs of troubles now that the thing is disconnected.)

I have 1993 toyota Tercel, It start good but when I put in drive gear it pick up at very slow speed and when I press accelarator it will go fast, But as soon I left the accelarator it will slow down. Why


If you haven't change air filter do so and something you try to check is the catalistic converter may be plug and is not leading the engine perform good.

Vdc and engine check lights both on


under dash connect together the 2 green multiplugs. The CEL light (Check Engine Light) will flash. Slow then fast. Count the slow flashes then the fast ones. I.E. code 21 will give 2 slow flashes then 1 fast = 21.

let me know the code and I will diagnose for you.
