Idle drops way low with fan,lights,ect..., on@ operating temp195, IAC is good power,no leak, power from computor;yes,under load, lights ect..,what am I overlooking? 91GeoMetro 3 banger


The electrical load on the alternator will pull the engine RPM down. It takes 10 H.P. to run the alternator. The only recourse to low RPM at idle would be to install a larger diameter pulley on the alternator. Extended idle could result in low battery charge rate. Should be fine at hi way speed. The alternator will not put out below 750 Rpm.

I have audi A6 2.4 model 2006. When I start the car in morning, the battery sign appears after a couple of seconds. But when I accelerate a bit it goes away. The normal position of the rpm should be about...


Afraid not. Although the light goes out it still may not be charging very little charge will put the light out. the other reason I feel it's the alternator is instead of rpm increasing it should decrease as a properly charging alternator should pull the engine which should decrease the rpm

Check the idle rpm (efi around 900 rpm ) carby around 750-800rpm. Very few alternators charge under 750 rpm as it requires 14 volts to charge the battery and at low revs the alternator will be producing around 11.5-12 volts. Check tension and condition of drive belt.

2006 envoy at idle of 500 rpm, voltage meter shows low charging, air conditioner quits cooling, lights dim. is the alternator bad?


This is too low an idle speed, it should be around 620 RPM. You probably need to have the throttle body cleaned.

I boost jeep and it starts up but soon as i let off gas it dies and kills battery


probly your alternator. at real high rpm it may still charge but not at low. also my be the battery it wont hold a charge then the alternator is trying to power everything at low rpm. then u drop to low and stop charging enough and the coil or fuel pump havnt enough power. if you use a volt meter and watch it. u should have 13 or more all the time and not morethen 15.5 if its working then probly the battery. another posibility is both check ur battery cables. corrosion can cause it to not charge. also make sure ur headlights arnt on because thats putting more on the altornator

I cannot find the place to put r134a in my 1998 Chevy malibu ls


Follow the Accumulator (round silver cylinder) low pressure hose to the fire wall. You will find the low pressure service port valve just before the fire wall.

Make sure you don't over charge the system, add small amount at a time and check the temperature every 3 min to 5 min by placing the A/C on max with the engine at 2000 RPM.

Once the temperature coming out of the vents are cold as ice with the engine at 2000 RPM. stop charging. So turn the recharge valve on for 20 seconds and then off then rev the engine to 2000 RPM for 3 min and check the temperature at the vent.

Once the temperature is ice cold, stop and don't over charge the system. Over charging the system will cause the A/C compressor to shut down and at worst break, causing a $500.00 repair cost.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Won't start, engine wont rev above 2000rpm


Have the alternator tested. You are providing a low charge to the battery when you jump it and when taking it above 2K RPM requires more amperage resulting in the engine dying and the rough idle
