I've a 1981 Vette that idles very rough with a cold engine start.


You need to have the choke adjusted so it runs on a fast idle so the engine can warm up or you may need the carb to be rebuild and adjusted properly.

98 explorer 4.0 SOHC wont idle and stalls when weather is below 40 degrees. worse when colder. Just had tune up, new airfilter new fuel filter but problem did not get better.


you have a bad idle air control valve. its job is to have motor rpm high until the motor warms up then turn it back to normal.

Engine idles up and down radicaly when first cranked , check engine light is on auto-zone put their reader on truck and it pulled up code for mass air flow sensor, so i replaced it still no change.


your idle is compensating for poss air leak like vac or idle air motor,does it settle down as it warms up .if so then a poss coolant sensor is thinking that it is 50 below.hence a very rich mixture and a idle which will hunt.idle air motor maybe plugged with carbon.also disconect the battery for couple of mins.start and hold idle high about 2000 rpm for 5 mins if all above does not work.

intake manifold gaskets leaking. when engine warms up they re-seal- somewhat. if you change them yourself ( bunch of silicone type O-Rings) careful that the brittle plastic clips of fuel injector electrical connectors dont fall off and into the intake ports of engine.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
My car will not idle properly until after it is warmed up.(1995 Olds. Cutlass Supreme 3.4)
It wants to idle up and down between 1000 and and 2000 and will stall out if I don't keep it revved up at 2000 until it warms up.
Thank you and have a great day.

I want to adjust the idle on a 2003 ford f150


The engine Idle is adjusted by the PCM (power control module) If your having idle problem, cleaned the throttle body real good (just to make sure there wasn't a problem there) then do a "IAC relearn" by unhooking the battery, letting it sit for about 5 minutes, then hooked battery back up, let it idle for 3 mins, put in gear and held it there for 3 mins, and then neutral for 3 mins, then back into park. Go for a test drive and this should fix the problem.

When its warmed up, in park or in gear, RPMs are about 600-650 at warm idle. At cold its about 850 or so, Good luck and thank you for using Fixya
