I suggest to take it to the nearest Autozone and ask them to hook their handheld meter to it and find out what that code is. It sounds a little like an air idle control valve,

    Most places will only have scanners that fit and analyze autos 1996 and up. Your 1994 is an older style. You'll either have to find a larger, well equipped auto mechanic shop or take it to a dealer. But that code really does need to be decoded.

Have you had it scanned for codes?

    You need to find someone with an older scan tool or you can buy a jumper plug from most parts store that will flash a light on it to flash codes. You can also do this with a jumper wire, but I will have to look up the procedure.

If you have a hih miles truck,it is very possoble you have aclogged cat.Have a muffler shop test pressure in front and behind by drilling small holes,checkin w/gauge,then welding back.This should be free if you replace the cat.

Would the catalytic converter cause jeep to idle low?


Not likly but possible. Cat Converters usually only play up after some contamination causes blockage and usually only affects high rev range

My 94 nissan patrol won't idle


if you mean it stalls at idle speed then it needs a service, the idle jets seem to be blocked and need a clean.
if you mean the engine stays and high rev and will not go down to idle this might mean the automatic choke is stuck on or the throttle cable is jammed and should be looked at.

I hope this was useful.

When I start the car it stays at 2000rpm for a few moments then drops down. I'll drive for a few minutes then put it in park and it revs up and down.

High fast idle at start up.


On most newer cars there is a fast idle motor controlled by the computer that will hold the fast idle till the engine reaches a preset temp in the computer then the engine should drop down to the set idle according to specs for that car. If the oil pressure continues to stay low after the idle goes down you may need to replace the oil pressure sending unit or if worse case the oil pump.
