    Thanks. No light on dashboard. Problem started occuring after I took it to the dealer for the 90K service which included all of your suggestions. I think I'll just make the dealer fix.

2002 GMC Envoy idle goes low when AC is turned on

There is usually an idle solenoid on the throttle body that is designed to bump up the idle when the A/C is switched on, this could be bad, or out of adjustment.

I have a 1997 Mazda 626 LX 2.0 Do i have to reset

Not sure, but I think it is preset meaning there is no adjustments. If the mounting holes are not slotted, then there is no adjustment. If they are, check underhood sticker for timing specs and procedures

1997 honda accord ex idles at 400rpm when warmed up how do i adjust it to raise it lil bit

If this is fuel injected with actual injectors you may find an adjustment on the throttle cable at the motor. If it has what appears to be a manifold mounted carborator there will be a throttle idle adjustment that you can adjust to increase idle.

The suspension system on my 2006 GX470 is acting up. If the car sits idle for a period of time, when you take off, the ride is extremelty bumping in the comfort setting - by bumpy - mean bouncing up and...

you have a failed height control sensor. there are two on your vehicle in the rear. they need to be removed and checked for being frozen and or corroded inside.
75% of the time it is the left rear(driver side). on an 03 it will only be covered if you have an extended warranty.

1999 Acura 3.2 TL has 87,000 miles changed spark plugs but starting RPM still low about 500; sometimes it takes two starts using gas pedal. Can you adjust Idle or does it need timing adjusted.

You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

My 89 Honda Accord LX 5 speed wants to die when its in neutral after being warmed up and drove for about 10 minutes, or I drop it down into second around a corner. I just had the muffler and exhaust fixed...

if you didn't have the exhaust replaced by a shop , I would check to see that the flow direction on the new muffler is correct. It should have an arrow indicating which way the flow direction is supposed to be right on the muffler itself. A muffler hooked up backwards would cause excessive back pressure and cause this type of symptom.

Let me know if you need any more on this.
