I just changed the engine in my Corolla and it's idling rough and sounds bad.


sounds like you have not connected the wiring correctly, don't think there are any free manuals, you could ask in the toyota owners club.

My 2005 Ford Focus won't stay running unless my foot is on the gas. It starts just fine & the check engine light is NOT on. What could be causing this?


It is likely that the engine management system has lost its base line calibration. If the battery is weak and during the crank to start the voltage dipped low enough the Engine Control Module lost its calibration. If the pedal is depressed during the crank the TPS (Throttle position sensor) will lose the idle position for the throttle. The hunting and surging and resultant stalling is the ECM seeking out the limits and re-establishing the throttle idle plate location.

If battery is OK than running the car allowing the calibration of the vehicle to reestablish itself will correct the problem. My experience is that this happens if the gas pedal is depressed during crank with a very very low battery voltage. Always the best way is to not touch the pedal during any cranking starting procedure. Or after a battery replacement.

To accelerate the calibration process attempt to run the car ingear tring not to allow the car to stall. After afew munites the car will have reestablished its normal running calibration and you will be allset.

F22a engine produces strange noise most obvious at 2000 rpm, what could the problem be?


Without a general description of what the noice sounds like, squeal as compared to knocking, it is impossible to help you. Engines make a lot of different noises, so try and help by describing noise. I would suspect it is belt related, or tension pulley related as these are RPM variable noises, belts tend to slip when you accelerate and can be quite loud with a serpentine belt as example.

I have a 1995 suzuki sidekick that is revving hi then low while in nuetral also when driving now it revvs up very high while sitting at a stoplight


at what RPM?,sure the 2wd has no tachometer,

Sidekick, with what engine? sure 5speed and 2wd,
but what engine.?
in 1995 they (last year this) 2 engines
the 8v and 16valve,
both, night and day different, EFI.
TBI and MPI injected, 8v is black top, 16v says 16 valves on top.
but both engines, will fail ISC controls like that if there are problems.(idle speed controls)
the surging (hunting) is one of 2 things.
  1. (too lean, or air leaks)
  2. or ISC lost control)
the ECU on the car will in fact hunt the ISC if it can not attain
800 RPM hot IDLE, that is its JOB, to do that, endlessly.
in fact 200 times a second.!
but is not working. (this control, its out of control for sure)
to find this can be easy or hard.? (luck and true causes)
depends on true cause.
I cant do both engines here, be like 10 pages.
The 8v engine races with all air leaks. and hunts. (races)
the 16v goes lean with all air leaks, (air density system is unique)
and goes slower, RPM and may hunt. no RPM stated so cant wax smarter...sorry.

so its a dirty ISC? cant close fully, ? clean it? first.
the 8v has air leaks. caused by vast reasons.
cracked hoses. leaking diaphragms, even the brake booster can leak. lots of leakage patch possible
or some one fiddled the idle air bleed screw making it fail.
try closing that valve (screw) turn it CW directly clock wise.

this page covers both systems.

this ISC cleans just like the EGR that leaks.
egr leaking cause, low RPm and it too, can make the ISC go nuts.
so, but no RPM stated. so.....
eg: hunting from 1000 to 1500RPM
or hunting from 500 to 700 rpm?

i pinch all hoses first.
if RPM drops the hose is cracked or the other end is leaking air.
every 50k miles?

does RPM go below 800 RPM HOT engine?
yes ./no
this a is key factor.

RPM is over 400 rpm higher than it should be with no gas pedal.


Could be several things.. I would suggest replace the neutral safety switch, all O2 sensors and fuel and air filters, PVC valve and if needed plugs n wires..
The issue could also be a bad throttle body.. Should be a good idea to get it hooked up to a diagnostic machine - get the codes and then you will know more of what you are dealing with..

Have a great day !!

1986 Nova: engine stops while standing and at low RPM. OK before I got rear ended. Next start up: would not idle without revving. Next startup: OK but died while driving home; kick started without any...


Is the choke opening up all the way after it warms completly up ? and have you checked the fuel lines to the gas tank they might have got pinched in wreck.
