SOURCE: Engine Idle speed

Yes that is most likely normal for your car. But there you could be other factors playing into the potential high idle, for example if your timing is off the computer could be compensating by advancing spark. When was your last tune up done?

It could be a fluctuation in oil pressure due to the cold temperature, or it's due an oil change with a new filter. The oil pressure switch might also be faulty.

Low idle


remove and clean the Idle air control (IAC) it may have carbon build up in it. make sure pcv valve is working properly. you can use carb cleaner to clean IAC valve. after IAC is removed, clean at throttle body side also. good-day!

Good day. My Volvo XC90 has check engine on, and the scan result is P2188. Can you explain code P2188 and what to do to fix the problem. Thanks


It means the engine is running rich (too much petrol) at idle speed. It probably has a rough idle now? The most common cause seems to be the Mass Air Flow - MAF - sensor at fault. It will need to be cleaned or replaced if so.

My 1998 Dodge Neon manual transmission DOHC idles high. WHY??


Without actually seeing the car, I would first look at the linkage and springs from the accelerator to the fuel intake. Could be as minor as dust build up or loose cable. Start with that, should that not fix the problem, try adjusting the idle set screw. Turning it clockwise will increase idle, counter clockwise will decrease. Try to have idle around 500-600rpm.

1999 Volvo S70 Stalls at stop signs and traffic lights


These models had a problem with the electronic control modules, and this is what controls the idle speed. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned, but sometimes they are defective. Volvo has extended the warranty on some of them to 10 years or 200,000 miles if it is found to be defective.

not a oo2 but maybe a IAC (idle air controll ) you should try and clean it with carb cleaner before replacing it.
