2009 Camry 5 Speed Manual trans. Has a rough, low idle below 500 RPM whats the cause?


Clean the throttle body bore and plate of any carbon deposits. Also, clean and check the IAC idle air control circuit . If it has electronic controlled throttle body it will not have the IAC. Carbon deposits around the throttle body bore and plate (butterfly) can restrict airflow at idle causing the low uneven idle.

Where is the location of the idle air control valve in a 2004 chevy malibu?


If there are no cables coming off throttle body to control throttle there is no Idle Air Control valve. the idle is controlled electronically by the computer. If car is idling rough you can clean throttle body to correct this problem. If you do have cables to control throttle the IAC valve is located right next to throttle body attached to it. Hope this helps

The check engine light is on and the car is idling high and jerking while stopped?Does anyone know whats wrong with it. I have a 2009 chevy hhr. Thanks


No one is going to know what is wrong with it. You must find out why the engine light is on. The PCM has detected a fault in one or more of its systems. In order to know what the fault may be you must retrieve the codes stored in it. Most auto part stores will hook up a generic OBD II code reader for free. But since its an 09, it should be under warranty. If you tinker with it, can't fix it so then take it to the dealer, they may deny your warranty claim because you worked on it first.

My 1992 chevy lumina z34 dies when I come to a stop sign.


I'm pretty sure your car has an "Idle Air Control" and this may be bad or the connectors to it could be corroded.

92 Grand Marquis chugs and dies when at an idle. Also jerks alot


The throttle speed control valve must be cleaned. The valve is located near the throttle body throat. It has an oval flange with two bolts. Unplug it, take it off and clean it out with throttle body cleaner. You will notice a big difference. This is a common issue with this engine.
Please remember to rate this fix.

2002 Honda Accord - slow engine start and jerking


Most likely a dirty idle speed control system follow the guidelines below to clean it.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
