The engine idle speed is not adjustable. You probably have a problem with the Idle Air Control Motor on the side of the throttle body.

My 96 nissan altima dies at idle


Could be a dirty throttle body, vac leak, or a defective idle air control valve. The computer adjusts idle speed by controlling the amount of air entering the throttle body via the control valve.
Is the check engine light on ?

The car wants to die when we stop at lights. i have put a new mass air flow sensor in it.


That is normally caused by too low idle speed. The increased load on the engine caused by the stop lights lowers the idle speed even more.

1989 Cadillac Sedan De Ville engine stalls when air is turned on...tries to take off when stopped at stoplight..sometimes dies while driving..


It sounds like the idle compensation circuit for the engine is dirty or faulty. Have your car checked at a shop. have them check the idle air motor for dirt or malfunction. It could be that it only needs to be cleaned or replaced.

The compensation circuit adjusts the idle/slow speed of the engine. The air conditioner puts a load on the engine and this circuit adjusts the engine speed to compensate. Also, when the car is cold this circuit adjusts the idle speed to prevent stalling and help the engine warm up faster. I hope this information helps you.

idle speed is not adjustable on this engine, here is what i do for the probelm.

, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Poor Idle, dies at stopsigns


I have used this fix for your problem for 20 years.
Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Setting idle speed on a 2001 vw beetle 2.0-


The engine doesn't have a mechanical idle speed adjustment - VW/Audi have a software called VagCom (the diagnostic software they use) that is used to adjust the idle - it's completely computer-controlled. You have to change the idle speed using the software.
