SOURCE: battery indecator light on on dash

Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.

SOURCE: Hi my 1999 Ford escort when it goes back to idle

sounds like a vacuume leak, take some soapy water in a spray bottle and spray the hoses slowly, when the motor levels out you found your leak, being 11 yrs old, i would change all the hoses anyway, they are overdue

SOURCE: ford escort won't idle sputter out rpm go below 1000

This is usually caused by having a vacuum hose come off or
connected to the wrong place. The diagram is under the hood.
Also the cold air bypass could be dirty and need cleaning. I use
carb cleaner in a spray can.
Other check air filter, plugs, wires.

Lights flickering at idle stops when accelerating


increase idle rpm's to around 750-800 and there will not be a problem. another way is to put a smaller drive pulley on the alternator or a bigger drive pulley on the crankshaft.

Have the fault code read as it may be a throttle position sensor or idle speed sensor that is at fault.

2004 oldmobile alero stumbles at about 4000 rpm, particularly on hill. battery light comes on briefly when this happens


pushing the accelerator to the floor causes it to go into clear flood mode .the control module reduces the fuel injector pulse width in order to increase the air to fuel ratio. It could be get to much fuel , leaking fuel injectors or a bad fuel pressure regulator . Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator an see if fuel drips from it , if it does the diaphram has a hole in it .

Wont idle or rev


theres a throttle position sensor and one part is connected to the accelerator pedal underneath,its like a rheostat in a radio,when you press on the gas pedal it sends a signal to the computer to increase the rpm's (just as a radio increases in volume),if this component opens up,it will not increase rpm's with pedal pressure or change

Can you tell the location of the idle speed valve on a 1998 escort gti please


You will find idle speed controllers in the area of the throttle plates. In order to work, air must bypass the throttle plates.

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

Battery voltage/rough idle


you need to have the altinator checked while under a load. if its checked with no load on it then it will test ok. in other words you have a altinator that is going bad.

1999 Ford SVT Mustang Cobra and a rattling sound


as for the rattling sound have you checked the heat shield on the catalytic converter, mine was loose and was causing a rattling sound when it was at idle, and would go away as the rpm's increased.
