No,only on carburated engines it,idles down to the set point,on yours,it's fuel injected,pushing gas pedal won't kick idle down,should go down after a certain amount of time,does it automatically,If you start and drive a 5 mile ride and stop at a stop sign,it should idle at it's set point if there's no engine problems,which may be.5 to .7 on your tac.When you normally first start,it will idle between 1000 to 1200 rpm's,don't push on gas,let idle say 15 seconds,put in drive and go.

You have a vacume leack, most likly on your PCV valve, or on the intake manifold there are a few rubber hoses that you should check for cracks and or leaks. When you find it go to the part store and buy then replace, you may e-mail me if you have any other questions bharris9@gmail.com

SOURCE: Check engine light on, car RPM stays at 1000 even

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to know for sure, or at least a good idea of where problem is, would be to stop at one of the big autoparts stores and ask for free diagnostic code scan. They will usually do it free, and if that doesn't point you in right direction, get back to us with those codes that were retrieved, and we will gladly help you out.

SOURCE: Oil light comes on and "bings" when the tack shows 1000 rpm.

I have no idea how many miles are on the van but 1st lets talk about the oil lite, it is telling u that the engine has less than 10 PSI of oil pressure, this may be the pressure sending unit on the engine is defective, if it does have low oil pressure then severe damage to the engine bearings can result, the click is most likely the contacts in the starter solenoid are burnt, they act up more cold and give the click you hear. I have no idea about the steering issue, without hearing it is almost imposs to diagnose such concerns. In closing I highly recommned that you address the low oil pressure concern ASAP

SOURCE: Chrysler Concorde LXI 4 door - 2004 The car starts up and seconds after, the RPM drops and the car shuts off. The code P0513 comes up on the computer.

That is a code for an invalid skim key. If you have another skim key try it. If it does the same thing then the skim module may be bad.

Check trans light pops up when I put the key in ignition and start the truck up then it goes off and the Rpm rev for a little bit


You didn't mention the year, make, or model of your truck, but it's irrelevant.
As long as the light turns off once the engine is running, nothing to worry about.
It is normal for an electronically-controlled engine to "rev" momentarily when it is first started but, if the RPMs stay over 1000 for more than a minute, there's a problem.

04 ford pick up when I let go of the gas it wants to die


It can be the fuel or engine settings. If the RPM drops considerably when you let go of the gas (less than 900 - 1000 RPM), the fuel might be the problem. I had the same problem with my 2012 Ford Focus Mark II and my 2011 Ford Ranger XLS (gasoline version). My suggestion is that you let the tank get almost empty (less than 1/4) and then put high-octane fuel (you don't need to fill the tank, just about enough to drive and test the car's behaviour). Personally, when I did this, the car's engine RPM didn't drop below 900 RPM and the response was much quicker.

1997 acura cl 2.2 revs up to 1500 rpm and down to 1000 rpm just several seconds after start


Cars are design to run at a higher idle at start up to warm them up quick. There is a sensor that reads water temperature and tells your car's computer how fast to idle. Your RPMs seem slightly high but not out of the norm. Does idle ever drop to around 600/800 after about a minute? If not, your engine temperature sensor maybe defective.

Hi, I have a 1999 Chico/Citi Golf. The revs stay above 1000 and do not want to drop, I do not even have to pull the choke out. How do I get my revs to drop back to 1000? It use to Idle just below 1000,...


Check that the choke accelerated idle cam is not stuck. Check that the throttle cable has not dislodged and the outer casing is riding on the bracket. Check that the throttle linkages are free and the throttle returns to the idle adjustment stop. If all these are correct, adjust the idle adjustment to obtain the correct idle speed. 700 - 800 rpm is about the right speed.
