Yes that is most likely normal for your car. But there you could be other factors playing into the potential high idle, for example if your timing is off the computer could be compensating by advancing spark. When was your last tune up done?

My van is idle high i cleaned the throttle boady and it idle down the a few hours later its high idle again why i replaced two sensor and still idle high


Hi Alexandra, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

There are several things that can cause high idle, but the 2 most common problems are as follows.

(1) You could have a vacuum leak somewhere on the engine. Here is how to check for that issue. Here's what I want you to do: Buy a can of CARB Cleaner and while the engine is running spray around the Intake Manifold, the manifold is the thing the throttle body sit on. Also spray around all the vacuum line as well. If while spraying there is a change in the idle speed then you have found your leak. If there is no change then move on to step 2.

(2) Sometimes when you have a high mileage vehicle parts begin to ware out or can also begin to stick in place. Here something you can check. Idle Air Control Motors can start sticking from corrosion build up and can cause a high idle issue. Here what I want you to do. Start the engine and let it idle, while its idling I want you to tap on the Idle Air Control Motor If it idles down to normal idle speed replace the motor. The motor mounts onto the throttle body and most of them are round. Once you replace it and start the engine you'll notice that its idling real high, :This Is Normal, just let it idle until the engine controller resets the idle speed to normal.

Hope this helps and should you need further help please visit my auto repair website. http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Good day. My Volvo XC90 has check engine on, and the scan result is P2188. Can you explain code P2188 and what to do to fix the problem. Thanks


It means the engine is running rich (too much petrol) at idle speed. It probably has a rough idle now? The most common cause seems to be the Mass Air Flow - MAF - sensor at fault. It will need to be cleaned or replaced if so.

My car starts hesitates the engine vibrates oil light comes on then sputters and cuts off


run the fault codes . Check for idle speed sensor and MAF sensor. It should be idling around 900rpm and the oil light coming on ( assuming you have enough oil in the sump) will be because of the very low idle rpm not pumping enough oil to maintain pressure.

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.

I would test both the tps and map sensors.
map sensor is here:

Testing

Check the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor circuit as follows:
Ignition OFF, disconnect the MAP harness connector at the MAP sensor.Ignition OFF, test for less than 5 ohms of resistance between the low reference circuit terminal 2 and ground.If greater than the specified range, test the low reference circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.Ignition ON, test for 4.8-5.2 volts between the 5-volt reference circuit terminal 1 and ground.If less than the specified range, test the 5-volt reference circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.If greater than the specified range, test the 5-volt reference circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.Verify the scan tool MAP Sensor parameter is less than 1 kPa.If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit terminal 3 for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.Install a 3A fused jumper wire between the signal circuit terminal 3 and the 5-volt reference circuit terminal 1. Verify the scan tool MAP Sensor parameter is greater than 126 kPa.If less than the specified range, test the signal circuit terminal 3 for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.If all circuits test normal, test or replace the MAP sensor.

Check the Throttle Position (TP) sensor circuits as follows:
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the throttle body.Ignition OFF for 90 seconds, test for less than 5 ohms of resistance between the low reference circuit terminal C and ground.If greater than 5 ohms, test the low reference circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM. Ignition ON, test for 4.8-5.2 volts between 5-volt reference circuit terminal E and ground.If less than 4.8 volts, test 5-volt reference circuit for a short to ground or an open / high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.If greater than 5.2 volts, test the 5-volt reference circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM. Verify the scan tool TP sensor 1 voltage is less than 0.1 volt.If greater than 0.1 volt, test the signal circuit terminal D for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM. Verify the scan tool TP sensor 2 voltage is greater than 4.8 volts.If less than 4.8 volts, test the signal circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM. Install a 3A fused jumper wire between the signal circuit terminal D and the 5-volt reference circuit terminal E of the TP sensor 1. Verify the TP sensor 1 voltage is greater than 4.8 volts.If less than 4.8 volts, test the TP sensor 1 signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM. Install a 3A fused jumper wire between the signal circuit terminal F and the low reference circuit terminal C of the TP sensor 2. Verify that the TP sensor 2 voltage is less than 0.1 voltIf greater than 1.0 volt, test the TP sensor 2 signal circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM. Ignition OFF for 90 seconds, disconnect the harness connector at the ECM.Test for less than 5 ohms of resistance on all TP sensor circuits between the following terminals:ECM C2 signal circuit terminal 65 to TP terminal DECM C2 signal circuit terminal 63 to TP terminal FECM C2 5-volt reference circuit terminal 3 to terminal E If greater than 5 ohms, repair the affected circuit for open/high resistance.Test for infinite resistance between TP sensor 1 signal circuit terminal D and TP sensor signal circuit terminal F.If less than infinite resistance, repair the short between TP sensor 1 signal circuit and TP sensor 2 signal circuit. If all circuits test normal, replace the throttle body.

Throttle Body Relearn Procedure
NOTE
Do NOT perform this procedure if DTCs are set.

Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.With a scan tool, monitor desired and actual RPM.The ECM will start to learn the new idle cells and Desired RPM should start to decrease.Ignition OFF for 60 seconds.Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.After the 3 minute run time the engine should be idling normal.
NOTE
During the drive cycle the check engine light may come on with idle speed DTCs. If idle speed codes are set, clear codes so the ECM can continue to learn.

If the engine idle speed has not been learned the vehicle will need to be driven at speeds above 70 km/h (44 mph) with several decelerations and extended idles.
After the drive cycle, the engine should be idling normally.

If the engine idle speed has not been learned, turn OFF the ignition for 60 seconds and repeat step 6.Once the engine speed has returned to normal, clear DTCs.

Just changed battery. Rpms are lower than normal at idle. It's dying when stopped for any length of time.


All you can do is drive it tell it relearns, This is common when the car losses power. You could try clearing codes. This puts the Idle Air Control valve a a preset postition. Disconnecting the battery sets it at 0.

Do you have a check engine light on? First thing I would do is unplug the IAC motor when the engine is warm. If the idle speed doesn't change you have a vacuum leak or a bad IAC motor. If the idle speed goes down you might have a bad TPS or IAC

It should be around 900RPM. But you are not supposed to adjust it on the throttle body. The computer does this by manipulating the idle air control valve.

Mitsubishi space star (x reg) stalling on idling and on stopping


This problem apears when the battery has been diconected for some time. Start the car, and leave in in idle without driving it for about 10 min. The car runs fine after that.
