This could be a bad a/c compressor or compressor pulley bearing.Try removing the serpentine belt and turning the compressor by itself.The bearing should turn very easily,and the compressor itself should turn.If it is vety hard to turn,it is bad.

SOURCE: 1995 Eagle Talon Will not start

check the mass air flow sensor, if this is bad then the ecu wont get a signal and it wont send the right amount of fuel to the cylinders causing a no start condition

Usually a vacuum leak will make the idle bog down rather than speed up, even if the ECU is compensating. It will be rough, but as you say, it's fine through the revs.

This leads me to think the PCV (postive crankcase valve) is not connected or is leaking. This raises the idle, although the ECU will suspect the IAC to be the problem. Check the PCV valve first.

Check the MAF sensor for dirt too.

Another point to make is the throttle body might be clogged/dirty. Get the intake manifold off again and clean it with petrol/carb cleaner and a toothbrush, check the condition of the rubber seals, if they are gunked up, the air speed will increase, causing a high idle. Check the exhaust manifolds for any build up/rust.

Finally, when were the O2 sensors last changed? If recently, are they the right way around? If not recently, try those, but make this the last resort as they can cost a lot.

I hope I have covered every eventuality as I can see how annoying this is for you. As you already mentioned, reset the ECu after each attempt.

Good luck, fire any questions back if you need.

Both the error codes mentioned are related to your problem.

Get both the things checked.

If checked faulty replace the faulty part

Code 25..... Idle Air Control (IAC) motor circuits. A shorted condition is detected in one or more of the IAC motor circuits.

So first check the IAC .

The Idle Air Control Valve motor is bolted onto the throttle body . Its tan or black in color, and takes two screw to take out. Check the IAC valve motor (OK means idle speed fluctuates or motor sound can be heard). If no, check the idle air control motor circuit. If yes, check the throttle body minimum air flow.

Poor connection at PCM or IAC motor. Inspect harness connectors for backed out terminals, improper mating, broken locks, improperly formed or damaged terminals, and poor terminal to wire connection.
Damaged harness. Inspect the wiring harness for damage.
Restricted air intake system. Check for a possible collapsed air intake duct, restricted air filter element, or foreign objects blocking the air intake system.
Throttle body. Check for objects blocking the IAC passage or throttle bore, excessive deposits in the IAC passage and on the IAC spindle, and excessive deposits in the throttle bore and on the throttle plate. Check for a sticking throttle plate. Also inspect the IAC passage for deposits or objects which will not allow the IAC spindle to fully extend. If all checked ok then replace the IAC.
You can unplug the IAC or even remove it from the throttle body and plug up the whole and see if the problem goes away. In most cases the IAc needs to be replaced.

Code 11..... Intermittent loss of crankshaft and/or camshaft position sensor signals to PCM, complete loss of crankshaft position sensor signal to PCM, or timing belt skipped one or more teeth.

The crank positioning sensor is located on the oppisite side of the block as the timing belt.

The camshaft sensor You should remove the top timing belt cover and see it.

Check under the INTAKE cam gear. The plugs for it should be right around there as well. There's a black rectangular one and a grey triangle one.. I believe the grey one is the cam sensor.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Code 507 is for a problem with the idle speed control being too high, and code 741 is for a problem with the torque converter clutch circuit.
You would check for vac leaks and see if the idle air control valve is working, and check the circuit for the torque converter clutch.

Idle speed is very high most of the time


Check accelerator cable, idle air control system and idle speed control motor(ISC), air intake setting and sensors, check the vacuum system. Scan the PCM for diagnostic trouble codes. ISC, vacuum leaks and air intake problems are the most common cause for fast idle on this car.

With my foot on the brake and in drive I rev the gas but when I take my foot off the car idle drops and then it stalls

Check under the hood for a vaccuum leak. This could be a bad vaccuum hose. If no vaccuum leak then this actually sounds like your IAC is bad (idle air control motor) and needs replaced.

1995 buick riviera super charged

Check for vacuum leaks and EGR operation - If no vac leaks, I'd bet it was the IAC-AAC Valve -(Idle air control/Aux.Air control) - It can sometimes be cleaned and lubricated, but it depends - I usually replace them when I have determined that to be the problem...Hope that helps or gives you a start point...

Power surging

This could be a number of problems, first you will need to check for trouble codes. See what you get. It could be as simple as a vaccuum leak, idle air control valve, map sensor, maf sensor. You really need to pull codes first.

1995 cadillac eldorado revs up by it self

CSP, It sounds like you have a vacuum leak that is causing the IAC ( idle air control ) motor to move in and out trying to control the idle. Check all vacuum hoses on the engine for disconnect, cracked or damaged. If the hoses crack when you bend them, they need to be replaced.
Let me know what you find and we can go from there.
