If it won't idle check the fuel filter. Could be stopped up. The air filter Could need to be changed. Also it could be just needing some fuel injection cleaner put in the gas tank.I hope this helps.

Rough engine idleing, stuck in high idle and also low idleing when stopped

you did'nt specify what year the vehicle is,but i suspect a bad idle control sensor. located on the intake manifold. usually. the cost of part is around 20.00 and replacement involves removing 2 bolts. just disconnect the battery before the replacement.autozone can assist with the location with a print out on paper,or advance auto,o'reilleys auto parts. all should be able to print it out for you with parts location and should be able to explain how to replace it. the rough idle up and down describes a bad idle control sensor,but if you want to be sure,,have them code read your cars computer for free just to be sure. it is a free service. thank you for choosing!

91 Buick Century-About 75-80% of the time I will start my car the service engine light will stay on. It idles really high then when I put it in gear it sputters and almost always dies unless I give it lots...

Sounds like carbon build up on the ( IAC Valve ) idle air control valve. Take IAC valve off and get a can of non-chlronated brake cleaner and a wire brush and clean carbon out of valve.If this does'nt fix it take the mass air flow sensor off and do same but do'nt use wire brush just the cleaner.Afterwards reset the computer by taking the ground off the battery for 30 seconds or pull the ECM fuse out then put it back and this will reset the computer.HOPE THIS HELPS!!

Car will start but will not idle. If RPM's not

Possible low fuel presure at idle. If new fuel filter does nt fix , then it will
require a new "fuel pump". Have you driven this car on low fuel level often?
