Its your idle control valve it is located under your air injection on the right standing in front of the car, toward the firewall, there will be a black hose connected to it aprox. 2.5" in diameter, remove the air intake hose (black hose), remove the throttle cables and hoses. For best results, use different color fingernail polish to mark the hoses and where they come from, remove the 3 or 4 bolts, slide the air injection unit off, turn it 180 degrees to bottom side,remove the bolts from the idle control valve, you will know the idle control valve because when removing the hoses they will have antifreeze in them.

First, do a tune-up. Make sure your air filter is clean and the idle air passages in the carburetor are clear. I assume at one the idle mixture was properly set, so if it's no longer idling properly, something else has changed. Fouled plugs or bad fuel could be a cause. In particular, ethanol-blend fuel that has been in the tank for several months will not work well in engines without electronic controls.

98 ford escort zx2 dies when it drops below 1000 rpms


I doubt the two problems are related.
The computer uses an idle speed control valve to regulate idle speed. The valve controls the amount of air entering the intake.
You should have a check engine light on and also a stored trouble code for the valve. It could also be a problem with the throttle plate in the throttle body.

Rough idle 95 astro van, I did a full tune up , plugs,wires,cap, rotor,air filter,and fuel filter and cleaned egr vavle.


I actually had to replace my EGR valve and the gasket. I clean the valve well and reused both. I don't think the gasket sealed well enough though. So I went ahead and got a new valve, gasket and changed them. It runs a lot smoother now.

1995 Saturn SC2 sputters


pull spark plugs check if any are excessively white or have a mineral deposit. This would indicate a head gasket problem. Also check the oil stick & cap for milky substance,also indicates head gasket. Another thing to check is pull the ignition coil off clean up the rust to get a better ground. Basic tune up changing the plugs & wires, filters ect may solve the sputtering.

1988 Isuzu Trooper II LS 4dr/4wd I changed fuel pump and inline filter about month ago, it will run but only if i keep it runinning with gas peddle at high rpms, will not idle as soon as I stop with...


Hi,
That looks like air in the fuel system. Bleed the fuel system by loosening the bleeder nipple, pump the bleeder( top of the fuel filter cartridge ) remove any bubbles that comes out from the bleeder, if there are no more bubbles tighten the bleeder and start the engine.

Hope that helps you out!

when cars idle super low this ussually mean that you fuel filter is clogged.........change the fuel filter.......and if that does not help.....check the air filter.......if dirty change it.......and if that still does not help......check the o2 sensor......and if that does not work......"when was the last time you had a tune up on your car"?

you might need new plugs...........also try runing a fuel injector cleaner....sometimes it is because the injec are dirty......

Sounds like the coolant temp sensor has a problem. Check the wiring first then try a sensor. They are relatively cheap.
