2002 Buick Rendezvous CXL will idle very high & idle too low & stall when going slow or stopping.Replaced IAC valve. Service engine soon light not on, but service vehicle soon light always comes on.

Check for applicable trouble codes. Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.

You may need to clean the throttle body and clean those small passages. With a high idle block off mouth of throttle body, should have a big effect on the idle? There are several issues that could cause idle to act up. Vacuum leak--maf and or map sensor. Don't replace anything unless testing points you in that direction.

How do I find the stepper motor on a 2003 Buick Rendezvous?

On the Throttle Body

Doubt it failed

Best make sure you have no cylinder misfires
& are not loosing throttle plate data or tps data

DO NOT replace parts
Have a professional road test with scan tool, to look at data

You need to do every thing to learn the vehicles systems
& find a problem & avoid replacing the throttle body, due to
lack of knowledge

Get some CRC Throttle Body Cleaner & read the
back of can

How and where to adjust idle on 2005 3.4 buick rendezvous?

Idle is adjusted by the car's ECM and can not be adjusted manually. Its most common when there is idle issues, there is carbon build up in the throttle body and will need to be cleaned out and can be done in under 5 min.

Buy a can of throttle body cleaner and clean out the throttle body and pay close attention to the IAC (Idle Air Control) passage way. Just follow the instruction on the can and you should have your idle issues resolved.

Good luck, be safe and keep us posted. Thank you for using fixya

Temp gauge only goes to a 1/4 of the way up. does not heat up

Because its real hard to gert to. Most likely the throttle body needs to be removed and maybe part of the exh crossover. Check if the INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKETS are leaking. If they are have them replaced and the thermostat at the same time. Intake gaskets are REAL COMMON. Once the intake is off, its a 5 minute job.
