If you remove the inside cover from between the seats the rotor is right in front of you. There is one screw near the base of the rotor that you can loosen. With the truck at idling you can slowly rotate the rotor left and right until you reach the desired idle. Tighten the screw back down and this should take care of the problem.

89 Cutlass Ciera, Check Engine Light, stalling, low idle


Have you checked the fluid levels? If you are low on oil, then this could be the cause. I would also try putting fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank to clean out your system. Especially in winter there seems to be more of a need to clean out your gas. It could be a dirty fuel injection system and this would help if it is.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.
Does this help? Let us know.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Starts and dies unless I rev it up then it will Idle


The battery might be low but I doubt it is causing the "no idle" problem.
You should have an idle air control valve that the computer uses to adjust idle speed. That valve could be faulty or dirty.

1989 VW cabriolet oil pressure warning light on at low rpm and idle. Oil pressure gauge shows sub 1 bar at same time. Is this a sending unit problem, or an oil pump problem? Where are sending units? ...


The Oil light is a dreaded sight, especially at idle. Usually if an oil pump fails, it dies, the same with an oil pressure sender. I had the same problem with a 97 neon, at idle the oil light comes on... (192,000 miles). If the oil used at the oil change was a thinner viscosity than what was in there, that could cause it. If not, it could be bearings going bad on the motor creating a low pressure situation. I fixed it by going to a thicker viscosity, from 5w-30 to 10w-30, and in a week the light went off... this was 7 months ago. Just food for thought, hope this helps.
