    the idle is going from 1300 to 1500. I was thinking throttle body gasket for high idle but im not sure

    changed out throttle body gasket and no change... any Ideas would be great. p.s. more worried about high idle then slight fluctuating

If your idle is going from 500rpms to 1000rpm's fluctuating at and idle your EGR valve is probably carbon up and needs cleaned or replace.

Kia Rio 2005 is Surging... just had Heads rebuilt after timing belt broke.


could be an ecm program problem
try and get a scanner to reset the ECM / cpu program as it can be corrupted after a long period of not battery connected
another possible problem is that the fuel pressure regulator / pump or possible dirty injectors
the relation to the head problem is , sitting for long periods can introduce dirt into the fuel lines or allow diaphragms to dry out
if your neighbor is mechanically savvy get a fuel pressure gauge to test fuel pressure as well

My 94 k2500 6.5 turbo diesel is idling high but when I tap the accelerator it goes back down and idle rough, when I try to drive it will jerk or surge, and it will also blows smoke what is wrong?pmd.


check that the turbo is fully operational ( variable vanes are free to move , actuator and vacuum hose are in good condition
the smoke is an indication that it is on on the job
the high idle may be from excess fuel and not enough air
and the rough idle and jerking indicates a air fuel ratio problem back again to the turbo
If you have fault codes run them and consider putting it on a chassis dyno for a full test of the pump and turbo

Hows do I fix the high surging idle on my 2000 chevy silverado?


I know this sounds nuts but I just did this to my Granddaughters truck and it works. Turn the key off open the door for 90 seconds close the door turn the key on but do not start the truck, press the gas pedal to the floor three times and shut the key off and wait 10 or 15 seconds and start the truck. This will reset the idle air control and should let the truck idle ok.

Transmission shifts hard into second gear(auto trans). However, when shutting engine off and restarting, the hard shift will go away. It will come back in a few days. Doesn't seem to matter how many...


it may be a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ). it causes transmission shift issues, bucking,jerking, idle surging, engine cut off, surge while crusing down highway. if this does not solve problem, it may be a sticking valve body in transmission. have a good day !! for an automatic tranny.

Engine pulsates during idle and from second to third gear


Try checking for vaccum leaks, use carb cleaner and spray it around the base of carb, vaccum hoses, edges of intake manifold, take pliers and squeeze the big line to brake power booster & see if it changes, pull the pcv valve out and cover with your finger see if it changes idle.
