Idle air control valve or iacv is most likely your problem. common on civic's you need to do a search to find out where it is because it is different depending on what model you have. take it off and clean it with brake clean and put it back on with a new gasket.

01 volvo s80 t6 2.8 surging at idle and hard brake pedal. Could a missing or bad gasket on the electronic throttle module cause this problem


The power brake booster runs on engine vacuum to provide the power assist. Since it surges at idle and you mention that hard brake pedal application causes the surge as well, along with the knowledge that the engine was recently replaced, I'd be looking for a vacuum leak somewhere.

If you had the engine installed by a reputable shop, you should take it back to them assuming it started doing this just after the engine was installed. If they have a smoke machine for locating vacuum leaks, that should make the search even easier.

97 expedition 5.4 doesnt idle very good


Surging idle is usually caused by vacuum leaks. Ford 5.4L engines are notorious for the PCV hose elbow leaking back behind the throttle body.

The PCV tube goes from the right (passenger) side valve cover and loops around behind the valve body. Inspect this hose on BOTH ends.

Got a 99 Nissan Altima 2.4, t-chain broke... replaced head and all t-components... start up surging idle and whistling off idle... engine runs smooth and great power off idle


the surging and whistling sounds like there might be a vacuum leak that is causing this.recheck all vacuum lines and surfaces were this is a gasket that seals a vacuum source.smooth running and good power off idle suggest this leak only affects the motor at a low(idle)rpm.

1997 Nissan Hardbody has rough idle/surges/stalls


the 2001 altima is what i have and I had the same problem as you. turned out to be a bad head gasket factory used cheap ones for a few years before they found the problem. one way to test this is to get a can of carborator cleaner and spray it around the area where the head meets the block under the intake problem should be around the 4th cylinder or close to driver side. if the head gasket is bad the rough idle will smooth out while you are spraying the head.
