My gl salvia is idleing very hight onky just happened today it idles high but when I turn my ac on it goes normal but not for long even with it on the idle still still picks up to much


Check for vacuum leaks would be my first thought.

Check engine light on? Check the trouble codes.

Idle air control (IAC) stepper motor stuck, dead or carboned up.

Low coolant will increase idle speed if a sensor is uncovered. Makes the computer think the car is running hot.

Sputters when i give it gas and jumps when picking up speed and sometimes idles rough?


You don't say how many miles its done so is it due a good engine service? Its no good sticking it on a diagnostic unit if its already sick. Get the basics done first.

Oil light comes on when the car is idleing or when I let off of the gas it blinks what could be the problem?


Low oil pressure maybe? Oil pressure will vary depending on engine speed-higher speed=more psi, lower speed=less psi. If there is a mechanical reason for low oil psi then idle is when it will be low enough to turn on or flicker the light. Also, you could very possabily have a slugged up oil pick-up screen.

When my 2003 buick rendezvous is at a complete stop it bogs down at taking off or strains at taking off. Once its rolling its fine even if i have to slow down it picks speed right back up.Just stains or...


Observe if you go down to the first gear when you slow down and pick up speed after. It may be an issue with the torque converter. If you have rough idling , you may have a dirty or faulty IAC valve.

Erratic idle speed


Have the fuel pressure checked. Could be an erratic pump or pressure regulator.
