SOURCE: Starts but won't stay running

I would sooner think it was caarbon on the throttle plates and a very dirty idle air control
Take off the air intake tubing so you can see the throttle plate on the rear side of the throttlebody there is a small round electrical item the connector will likely come in from the side on the end of this item it will have two (2) TORX head screws holding it on you can see the tim if you get a bright flashlight and look straight down into the hole in the throttlebody near the idle air controller you hould see a tapered plunger its likely all coated with carbon. its best to remove the IAC and thuroughly clean it but some good carb spray may do it on the plunger. Now open the throttle and put a stick or a brick on the accelerator pedal of course with the engine off!!!!! the throttle plate will wide open dont put your fingers in theere in case the accelerator snaps shut it will cut your finger nearly off, clean BOTH sides of the place till its spotless and the walls as far down as you can reach all around rinse it good with carb cleaner and take the block off the accelerator , put everything back togother and start it it will start hard but it will start and rev it up gently a few times and see if it idles better if not you need to remove the IAC and clean correctly.If this information helps please give me a fixya Rating thanks,Randy
contact me if you have any questions
you should use about half the can of carb cleaner to do this.

SOURCE: saab 9-5 need to give alittle throttle for cold engine start

the idle air control valve may be bad or just needs cleaned out. idle air control valve acts the same as a choke. if it is messing up it will cause engine not to run right.

I have a 2001 Toyota Corolla. The revs fluctuate whilst idling.


could be a bad TPS or stuck, bad, dirty idle air control solenoid (IAC). check fuel pressure and check for vacuum leaks after the air flow sensor. more info is needed because what you describe could be many different things or a combo of different things

Hi,
Sounds like a tune up is in order.
You can mask the problem by changing the fuel filter and spark plugs.
Also there is a small adjustment screw at the throttle linkage. Open the hood and stand close to the battery. Have someone rev the engine and look for the circle or half circle looking spring like mechanism.This is your throttle. Take a small screwdriver or other wrench [ some have different adjustment screws] and simply turn the screw you will see as the adjuster in about 1.4 turn until you are happy with the idle.

Vw polo maintains engine revs when foot is off the accelerator.


You need to check the cable the runs from the gas pedal to the engine, it might be rusty and need some drops of penetrating oil at the point it meets with the engine accelerator valve.
