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.

Idles high when braking


Look for a vacuum line that is leaking, oyu canspray starting fluid around the vacuum lines when you hear a sudden change in the engine you have found your vacuum leak, Replace vacuum line accordingly.

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.

Upon starting 99 ram 1500 it starts to idle down and almost die but once i give it gas its fine for a while what to do?


Have someone check the idle air control valve. When you are idling the intake air takes a different path into the motor than it does when you depress the accelerator. A hunting / erratic idle is a good indicator of a faulty IAC. Sometimes you can clean them but best to replace.

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 revs up when its is idling


Sounds like either an idle air control valve or a TPS sensor. These items will cause a check engine light to come on as well.. I recommend heading to an AUTOZONE or an AAMCO and you can get the check engine light checked for free. Hopefully you dont live in California cause then you can only go to AAMCO cause AUTOZONE cant do it in California. Good luck
