Fast idle cold to hot


to fast hot and too fast cold that it?
well here is normal, its a G16 engine, a Vitara with Sidekick badge.
G16 in cold weather, start and race idle at about 1500 rpm
or more if in ALASKA, you never said that or how cold it is.
the IAC valve is thermal, it and opens more colder, a fact.
the 8valve engine (black steel top) is faster. cold idle
then drops in a few seconds, to 1500rpm
at this time, the ECU brain does NOT control idle speeds at all.
the the engine warms up by virtue of the thermostat
as it warms to 150F to on way to 180f stock temp.
the ECU then takes control of the idle speeds.
got that so far?
so at 180f the idle is 800 rpm (800 is hard coded in the ECU,
ad ECU regulates this, unless you turn on the A.C , and if that happens 1000rpm is called up.
if not the ECU cant control it or the ECU is in limphome mode or worse.

if you insert the diagnostic jumper
does the CEL lamp flash 12s
it must.
see this paper clip this is your only scan tool.
it is crude but that is all you get until 1996.

2007 Silverado 2500hd cruise control stops working when the weather gets cold. Could you tell me what is causing this problem.


Make sure your brake lights work.
May be bad switch,the cruise control runs through the brake light switch by the brake pedal.

My Chevy S10 2.8 idles fast in cold weather. What can I do?


Sounds like the fast idle screw needs to be adjusted on the throttle body or if it has an IAC, it may need to be replaced. A little more info on the vehicle might help to narrow it down.

How can i minimize the fuel consumption of my jeep 2000 cherouki laredo 6 cylinders ?


There are several things you can do. Make sure the engine is in good tune, replace the air filter, Air the tires up to 34 pounds air pressure to lessen the rolling resistance, How you drive is most important. Take off from traffic light and stop signs slowly. accelerate steady, don't be in a hurry to reach cruising speed, unless, of course, you are merging with fast traffic. Anticipate stops. Start slowing down sooner when coming to a stop sign or traffic signal. Coast on the downhill streets, and use the cruise control as much as possible. Don't waste gas warming up your vehicle in cold weather. It will warm up quickly while you are driving. Any time spent idling is zero miles per gallon.

2003 Chevrolet Venture Cruise control does not work anymore. I've checked both fuse boxes, all are ok. What now? Repair shop. Anyone have this problem and was able to fix it?


I read everybody's replies. Brake lights. Who would think? Before I read this, I ran my 2002 Venture all over at various speeds yesterday. The Cruise Control would not work - no matter what. Today, I had my wife tap the brakes and both lights and the roofline light lit up. I drove the van down the street and engaged the Cruise Control. It worked like new. Weird, huh? Very cold here 12/11/16 in Southeast Ohio. Maybe it was the cold weather and because I had not used it for a few months? Thanks for the answers. This is a GOOD SITE!!! JACK

Driver seat belt worn half way thru .engine just started to idle high. door lights stay on,it is a 1992 4 dr hatch back w/70000 mi


I'm sorry, what is your question?

Your seat belt can be replaced - the seat belt has nothing to do with the engine idle, or the door light. The light stays on because the door switch needs adjustment or replaced or perhaps it has beenturned on by the light interior light switch that controls the dash board lights.

70,000 is not a lot of miles.

I suggest you have your vehicle tuned up aat a garage to fix the high idle and assure economical operation. That same mechanic may be able to advise you on the light and how to replace the seat belt. Your car may be running fast because of the cold weather to warm itself up. I dont know where you live.

My 89 Toyota pickup idles too fast in cold weather


I would have a look at your coolant sensor, if it's reading the wrong temperature, it will cause a idle problem. If you can, get a scanner on it to verify it's operation.
