Low / uneven idle problem can cause by a lot of components.

Dirty air filter

Dirty injectors + o-rings

Vacuum leak at intake manifold and vacuum hose.

Bad Idle Air Control Motor (IAC)

Low compression (170 psi + is OK)

Start cleaning and repair these trouble spots and see is there any improvement.

====

For more advance DIY'er then you may try this.

Use a can of Berryman carburetor clean to locate the vacuum leak.


SEE SAMPLE PICTURE HERE


This is a 20-30 minutes job.

Vacuum leaks can occur in following locations.


Intake manifold AND/OR vacuum lines.


Intake manifold is not accessible unless the engine head if off.

You can still check the potential leak by spraying some Berryman near the intake manifold.

Listen for rpm increase after you introduce the Berryman (FUEL) at idle.


Do the same starting from the brake booster unit (the round unit) on the drive side fire all.

Carefully listen for increase of RPM right after to spray the Berryman to the potential vacuum spot.

Get a friend to HEAR the ROM increase or monitor for RPM on the tech.

DO NOT AIM the Berryman into any heat source.


PLEASE RATE my answer if it is useful to you.

The high idle sounds like the computer not telling it to idle down.....2nd,check the thermostate. 3rd if still no heat the heater core could be plugged with sluge....take the hoses off and put the water hose to it..it should push out the crude...you may have to do this more than once. It worked for me.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse coding P0102; running rough at idle and seems to be in default; won't tach past 4K...any ideas? V/6


P0102 = MASS AIR FLOW (MAF) circuit - low input. This sensor tells the engine computer how much air is entering the engine. The engine computer uses this sensor's signal to calculate the fuel map (fuel-to-air ratio). The 'Low Input" means the computer isn't getting any signal from it.... this is why it won't go past 4k.
