Typically you will have a check light on . Im so get it scanned !!

if not it may be a few things such as a vacuum line off or broken.
could also be a MAP sensor .

Why does my 2006 chevy silverado 1500 5.3 ltre have an uneven idle when running and in park. no check engine light.


You need to clean the throttle body and the idle air control motor. Use brake clean and a toothbrush. Clean inside the throttle as far as you can and clean especially the back of the throttle plate and where it sits when it is shut. It's best to remove the Idle control motor and clean it with the brush. But you can start the engine and clean it some by revving it up and spraying into the throttle around the hole for the motor. It will take a second or two to start after cleaning.

What's your problem?my 96 blazer is revving at about 3100 in park and neutral and accelerates on its own to about 40 45 mph anyone know why this is happening?


You have a stuck/defective IAC(idle air control) motor or a HUGE vaccum leak.Or,your throttle cable could be binding,causing the throttle to stick.

99 saturn loud revving sound in engine


Start the car and use a spray bottle to spray a bunch of water mist around the top back of the engine where the intake meets the head. If it starts to die you have an intake manifold leak. It\'s kind of a pain to change, but not really technical. Also, clean your throttle body and clean the idle air controller (IAC). Alos consider replacing the Throttle position sensor (TPS). Both are located on the back of the throttle body.

Air conditioning causes car to idle or die.


Depending on whether your car is Injected or Carby induction, The aircon system has an IDLE UP circuit which is supposed to raise the Idle while the Aircon Compressor is engaged. The Compressor cycles on & off to charge the system pressure as required. The Idle up system typically uses an IDLE UP SOLENOID which is usually mounted directly on the throttle linkage at the Carby or Throttle body itself, or a Vacuum Solenoid which switches vacuum to a Diaphram which is connected to a linkage on the Carby or Throttle body itself, or a Vacuum Switch which ports air into the throttle body to raise idle (This type on injected vehicles only). It sounds as if the IDLE UP system has failed or is not adjusted properly. Revving the engine spins the compressor faster thus charging the system sufficiently to dis-engage the compressor, which in turn removes the load from the engine, allowing it to idle again. A simple way to test is to disconnect the Aircon clutch wire (make sure it cannot fall into belt) & switch on the Air with the engine running. The RPM should raise typically around 300 RPM. If it doesn't the IDLE UP is not working. Hope this helps.

How can i idle the throttle down on my 93 S/10 blazer 4.3L 4wd


It's computerised. If it's revving, check for vacuum leaks, or the throttle position sensor. Make sure you don't have a loose spark plug.
