SOURCE: Revs surging up and down

sounds like your intake gasket broke, creating a vacuum leak, thus resulting in idle surge and un-even idle.

The Key Fob needs to be syncronised to the car........Try this it works for many Mercs1....ensure the battery in the "Key Fob" is OK............Press either Lock or Unlock button for more than 1 second, the lamp on the fob will light if OK. Change battery if it does not illuminate!  2.....if battery on fob OK.......Re Syncronise the key fob to the car by:.... a brief press on either button twice and within 30 seconds turn Key to position 2 on the ignition lock 
Hope that fixes it...let me know?

SOURCE: Mercedes C200 just idling accelerator does not work

Try this. Turn the ignition to position 2 and leave it about two minutes(you should hear components moving/making noise under the hood). This should relearn the throttle stop(sounds like your vehicle lost synchronization). After that period of time, start the car and see if it helps. If not, then it will probably have to go to the dealer so they can use the computer to try and relearn it.

SOURCE: windscreen wiper on Mercedes C200 not working

you should check the connection to the main board and the connections to the motor for the wipers. these sometimes become gunked up, so when you pull them apart to check them clean them with sand paper or something that can scrub them like a green scratch pad

Revs high when i change gear


Is it possible the clutch pedal is interfering with the throttle? Start the engine in neutral and allow it to idle. Press only the clutch pedal down and see if this increase the engine speed. If it does speed up the engine and slows back down when you release the clutch then somehow this operation is where your fault lies. If it doesn't alter the idle speed, then rev your engine and release the throttle to see if it returns to idle immediately. If it is slow to return to idle then your throttle cable could be sticking. This means when you change gear lifting off the throttle has little effect and depressing the clutch to change gear causes the engine to race as the throttle is still partially open.

Engine starts and idles fine, but will not rev up (2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 diesel auto)


If it was a fuel shortage the engine would rev but to limited speed. This is a lack of air to throttle body. Check for clogged air filter and all the piping and the throttle body.

How to adjust idlefor 1992 mercedes benz 190 e 2.6


do you want to adjust the idle up or down? If your car has too high of an idle, you probably have a vacuum leak. buy a can of starting fluid. Start the car and lightly start spraying starter fluid all over the intake. You will hear the engine change RPMs. When it does, that is where you have a leak. If you want to idle your car up, you will need to adjust your throttle plate. Where your throttle hand moves when you rev your engine, it has a little screw that you can adjust to make the throttle arm stop sooner, allowing more airflow into the engine.

When driving at 15 miles, the car is usually on second gear, when pressing the gas pedal, one of 3 things happen, it easier feels as a little jump occured, or an increase in RPM, that settles down shortly...


I would suggest a service of the automatic transmission where the filter will be cleaned, bands tightened and new transmission fluid put in. the autotransmission is often forgotten about in our car servicing.
Good Luck

Lotus Esprit S4 NOT idling correctly


the se esprits the s4 and s4s series are programmed to speed up engine rpm and close off the exhaust back pressure valve to speed up the heating of the catalytic converter to operating temperature and is quite normal regardless of engine temp. if you quickly blip the throttle pedal a few times it should settle as the cat temp rises if that is the case then it is all working as normal.
