Have a 1993 Mitsubishi Libero that revs high on its own when in idle

Idle control valve is stuck and may just need soaking overnight in carb cleaner, if that doesn't work it must be replaced.

My 2002 Montero Sport is overheating while idling but does not do so when I am driving.

See if the electric fan motor is coming on when you are at an idle. If it is not, then you may need to replace the motor or find out if there is a problem with the relays. A good mechanic can check these things out for you at a small expense. The motor does not cost a great deal and it might simply be an electrical problem.

Hi there, my headlights for my 2001 Toyota Corolla just stopped working. Brought it in to the dealer and they said it would cost up to $350 to fix. Does anyone have any suggestions how I could fix this...

There are several parts that usually breaks down in the lighting system of a car, the most expensive one would be the light switch assembly.
Did you try to go to any small garage to ask them for a free estimate for fixing your light?
The parts can be bought from a wrecking yard/used parts store, for that model or you could ask the mechanic to help you out for the cheapest good condition parts.
They will surely help you out!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Mitsubishi idling problem!!??

Am not shure the kind of engin you really have but see if your stepping mottor is damage or need relpacing. that problem can happen if you have a faulty unit . it also called the step up unit or sensor, if your car have air condition is turned on and the rpm goes up and down that can be the problem , the unit can be found attached to the throttle body. just below.

1995 Galant Idels between 1500 and 2000rpm.

hi, i would say the automatic choke spring broke, this is what controls the cars idle at cold and hot engine tempatures. if it's broke it is no longer able to automaticly regulate the rpm's the for making it idle at hi rpm. hope this could help you.

Idle air control

all the sudden the check engine light came on and it started to idle funny and dying at stops. I had a diagnostic done on it and changed out the idle air control valve but it doent seem any different. and the check engine light is still throwing the same code. we adjusted the idle up so i could drive it with out it dying but it is still acting funny.
