Low / uneven idle problem can cause by a lot of components.

Dirty air filter

Dirty injectors + o-rings

Vacuum leak at intake manifold and vacuum hose.

Bad Idle Air Control Motor (IAC)

Low compression (170 psi + is OK)

Start cleaning and repair these trouble spots and see is there any improvement.

====

For more advance DIY'er then you may try this.

Use a can of Berryman carburetor clean to locate the vacuum leak.


SEE SAMPLE PICTURE HERE


This is a 20-30 minutes job.

Vacuum leaks can occur in following locations.


Intake manifold AND/OR vacuum lines.


Intake manifold is not accessible unless the engine head if off.

You can still check the potential leak by spraying some Berryman near the intake manifold.

Listen for rpm increase after you introduce the Berryman (FUEL) at idle.


Do the same starting from the brake booster unit (the round unit) on the drive side fire all.

Carefully listen for increase of RPM right after to spray the Berryman to the potential vacuum spot.

Get a friend to HEAR the ROM increase or monitor for RPM on the tech.

DO NOT AIM the Berryman into any heat source.


PLEASE RATE my answer if it is useful to you.

Tehe I.A.C. control valve on the throttle body controls idle ,after time it gets sluggish due to fuel vapors leaving deposits ,pull off the throttle body and clean it with a can of throttle body cleaner,should do the trick ,if not check for vacuum leak.

My ford escape 2008 hybrid suddenly runs at higher rpms and idles at 1500 rpms. yesterday it worked fine and idled at 1100 rpms


You need the engine computer scanned for faults first, if nothing shows up you likely have a problem with the transmission, likely it is not shifting into overdrive.

2006 GMC Yukon, 3/4 ton with tow package will not idle above 1200 rpms/10-15 mph


check ICS for correct operation
engine idle speed is 850 -950 rpms for auto and 750-850 for manual
at 1200 rpms you are not on the idle circuits but on power circuits
run the fault codes

How to adjust idle


Should idle between 550 or 650 RPMs. If it wont stay running under 1000 RPMs there is something wrong. Idling at or above 1000 RPMs it' going to be slamming into forward and reverse.

I have a 1999 nissan frontier with a 3.3 automatic 4x4. At idle the rpms are at about 1200 to 1400. At 60 mph the rpms are at 3200. Is this normal or is there something i can do to fix this?


There is no connection between the idle revs and revs at speed .The revs for 60 mph sound about right but the idle revs are controlled by the idle speed sensor and various other sensors Have the fault codes read Replace the faulty units with
genuine one because most aftermarket units are not set for OEM cpu units and are not completely compatible.

Low oil pressure indicator at low rpms (idle) '97 olds V8


Thicker oil is all you need. 5w30 is too thin when it warms up and the sensor cant pick up the flow going past. 10w40 should stop all the issues
