Question about Land Rover Freelander

1 Answer

Idle speed is too high on my Freelander 1.8 petrol. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it sits at 1500rpm although sometimes it sits at 3500rpm. In every other respect the engine performs 100% to spec.

The Idle air speed control of the car is starting to go or the Mass Air Flow sensor is starting to go. I would have the vehicle checked out by your local Mechanic. The HIgh RPM at 3500 on start up is going to cause internal damage to the engine over time. The engine oil can not circulate fast enough on initial start up to all the lubricating parts.

The idle is so high about 1500rpm i already clean the trolley how can i adjust the idle please help


Hi Loret,
The idle control is electronically controlled. If the idle speed is too high, its likely that the cold start unit which is fitted to the throttle body is defective and should be replaced....
One thing I've noticed living in a hot climate....Many of our mechanics remove the thermostat believing it serves no function in a hot climate. The thermostat in fact is a critical component in all climates and must be fitted, particularly with fuel petrol injected vehicles. If removed the the result will be incorrect temperature signals being sent to the management system, which in turn could result in the fast idle you are describing. The computer will be told that the coolant is cold and therefore increase the idle speed as if the engine is still cold!

Check the hoses - especially all the little 10mm hoses that connect vacuum pipes, etc.
There is a device in the throttle body called an Idle Stabilisation Valve - they get gummed up, especially on such an old car, and with NZ's low-petroleum fuel - lots of additives in NZ gas.
They are easy enough to clean - look for a lead plugged into the throttle body near the butterfly - you can unclip it and pull it out complete - they are usually about 15cm long, by about 4cm wide.
Spray it liberally with carb cleaner and make sure it can move freely. If not, a wrecker is the best bet - they are pricey new.
Good luck.

Erratic idoling when warm


sounds like the air idle valve , if you can get hold of valve to test, try this find valve on inlet manifold and pull hose off going to throttle body,reconect hose to new valve so valves are i line to each other, start car and let it idle for a few moments till the fast idle slows down, then disconnect the wirering goint to the original aiv and connect to the new one , hopefully the original one would have been diconnected in the open position , reconnect wirering to the new valve and turn engine off. disconnect battery for 20 seconds . recon battery and turn ignition on, pump gas pedel 5 times to reset . start engine and let it idle for a few moments ,then try to turn steering wheel , engine speed should rise slightly due to load from power steering pump and then settle back down 875 1075 rpm.this is what the air idle valve should do. if it doesen't look at wiring goig to aiv might have scuffed through.

High idle in a 2004 Grand Am

Check engine light is on and high idle (1500rpm)


Some times the E.G.R. will stick half open. This will make the engine surge or have high idle. Try replaceing the E.G.R. located under the upper intake. Do not go with after market E.G.R. The spring in them are to powrefil and the E.G.R. wil not open. Also try replaceing the O2 sensors. This could give the engine more fuel thus a higher idle. Some vehicles the T.P.S. can be ajusted, do some checking to see if yours is adjustable.

Please contact me if your problem presists.
Thanks, Charlie
