Your idle speed is either too low or your ECU is not sensing it correctly. The dealership would have to help with either of these. Other than that you may have a weak or bad fuel injector that is not pumping gas to the motor.

What is the solution to stop idle car racing?


Spring on throttle body is not working. Or, throttle plates sticking, clean them. Or Accel cable sticking. Have someone push the pedal while you look for the problem under the hood.

While driving my tachometer doesnt go straight to 0 when i stop. It stays around 3/4 close to 1. Is this a concern? 2001 acura cl type s


Hi Eveerei, If you're asking about the tachometer and not the speedo meter, that meter records the engine RPM speed and not the vehicle ground speed The tachometer at idle (when you stop at a traffic light, stop street or any other stop) should record an engine speed of about seven hundred to seven fifty revolutions per minute, at idle. It will increase in relationship to how hard you push your foot on the accelerator pedal. Hope this info helps you. Happy new year and regards John

Idle speed too low


Sounds like you may have an issue with your idle air control or your mass air flow sensor. The IAC can cause a vehicle to stall when up to temperature, especially when warmer outside.I would clean or replace that for starters.

I'm traveling and my 07 Chevrolet Tahoe died when it was idling in traffic. It finally started and the check engine light came on but then went off. It died on me again when I was at a traffic light...


{: ) It could be that your idle speed control need some resetting. But before that, you need to check your throttle body for accumulation of carbon deposits. You should have it cleaned first. And then do the reset by a scan tool.

This sounds like a bad idle air control valve, but also make sure the throtlebody is clean, use a toothbrush and some throtlebody cleaner, spray and clean with brush, make sure to open plate by having someone hold gas pedal to floor, after cleaning if truck still stalls then replace the idle air control valve,
