Why does the engine revs drop too low and sometimes stalling when I engage any gear?


This can be either an engine management issue (bad idle air control) or a transmission issue if an automatic trans (torque converter lock up problem). Idle air control can often be cleaned so = cheap fix. Trans problem not so easy.

I have a 2001 Toyota Corolla. The revs fluctuate whilst idling.


could be a bad TPS or stuck, bad, dirty idle air control solenoid (IAC). check fuel pressure and check for vacuum leaks after the air flow sensor. more info is needed because what you describe could be many different things or a combo of different things

Why won't my 99 beetle idle when its cold ?


If it's petrol it should idle about 800rpm and if it'd diesel it should idle around 900rpm so below 1000 i't normal when warm. When cold is should be around 1100rpm.

My 99 dodge durango idles @1500 when i start it then when i rev it up past 2000 it stays idling @ 2000


Check for vacuum leaks, this is a common problem on the durango. Unmetered air enters the engine and creates a high idle condition.

I wish to adjust the idle tickover speed a wee bit on a 2007 Ford Transit 2.2 Duratorq engine. It is currenlty ticking over at approx 800 rpm and is hunting at this rev. If I could raise it a wee as I do...


First ensure that the throttle interior is really clean, a surface layer of grime can upset the ECU's ability to meter and govern the air entering the engine. If the throttle body interior is found to be really oily and dirty check on the idle air control valve and make sure that it too is cleaned up. Next put the ignition switch in position 2 (on, but no start) and depress the accelerator fully and release. If there is an issue with the throttle position sensor this procedure can help the ECU relocate the throttle plate position. Start the engine and if it is still hunting locate the air mass meter (AMM) on the air ducting immediately next to the air filter and disconnect the electrical connection. Does this remove the hunting aspect?... the rev speed might change but for the moment concentrate on the evenness of the tick-over. If the idle is even when the AMM is disconnected but hunts when connected then look at replacing your AMM. Try spraying the AMM with no residue electrical cleaning spray to see if this improves matters.

The engine will start and idle fine. Engine revs


Definitely an electrical problem. Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.
