Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer
Hi if anyone could help with this it would be great, i have small mechanical knowledge, so hopefully can fix myself with some info from you.... well its a mitsubishi libero ,manual, 1.8L turbo, it idles really wierd and when it is at normal idle speed it idles then stops then starts then stops then starts over and over, it doesnt actually stall the car but sounds pretty sick...i also turned the idle screw so it idles at high revs like 2000 rpm and it runs fine at that but i dont really want it to be driving around like this, does anyone know what this could be??? thanks in advance!!!
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.

OPTION A : remove the big hose which connects the air filter housing to the throttle intake. Spray with a carb cleaner to remove off the carbon deposits around the intake. Connect the hose, start the engine and rev up at high RPM. Repeat the process three (3) times until smooth idling is felt. If problems still occurs, it's time for you to perform OPTION B : have your servo cleaned.
