SOURCE: Not idling well

Could be many things Mass Airflow Sensor, coil pack, O2 sensor , plugs ,wires right down to fuel filter. . It all depends on how well the car has been maintained . If you know the maintenance history of the car then you can start crossing things off one at a time till you come across something that hasn't been changed in a while like plugs for example .

SOURCE: 84 toyota pickup will not idle just happened on

have your TPS sensor looked at since that controls your idle and rpms. It sounds like it's causing your rpms to drop too low

Last weakend i drove about 400 miles ,the truck ran smooth all weekend untill we got off the freeway it started idling very rough ,i thought it was going to shut off so i cept the idle speed up when...


YEA, REPLACE EGR VALVE, ALSO, REPLACE AIR & FUEL FILTER, OXYGEN SENSOR SHOULD ALSO BE REPLACED !!!!! DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR CODES ARE @ THIS TIME, BUT TAKE TO A AUTOPARTS STORE, THEY CAN PULL THEM & LET YOU KNOW ! MISFIRE MAY BE YOUR KNOCK SENSOR, ACTING LIKE A MISFIRE . EGR VALVE IS KNOWN TO GET CLOGGED UP, SEVERELY ! MAP SENSOR MAY BE ACTING UP ALSO, ALL SENSORS WORK TOGETHER, IF ONE STARTS GOING BAD THE OTHERS TRY TO ALONG WITH THE COMPUTER TRY TO COMPENSATE, YOU ONLY NOTICED IT AFTER FREEWAY, BECAUSE @ HIGHER THROTTLE, IT WILL NOT SHOW UP, THE TRUTH CAME OUT WHEN YOU GOT OFF THE FREEWAY ! VERY CONDISENDING , ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU WHERE HELPING TO BLOW OUT THE ENGINE TO RUN BETTER,. YOU SHOOK SOMETHING LOOSE. BETTER AFTER FREEWAY, THEN ON IT.

Check engine light on, while decellerating on freeway offramp the engine dropped down to an idle. when pressing the accelerator the engine barely raises the rpm's. linkage seems ok.


Check engine light usually means some failure in emissions control
system. Kia will have to hook up and get diagnostic code or codes.

spark plugs? spark plug wires? coil? if it shuts off when hot, and starts when cold, coil could be problem....could be radiator stopped up causing it too heat, and will go off wait a few and it'll start back up...

shouldnt worry about compression ratio pressures as yet ,if all gauges going up the swanie then either altenator is overcharging and the voltage burnt things out or a gremlin got into works when you visited the mountains in whick case call ghost busters ,must go first customer has arrived
