1997 acura cl 2.2 revs up to 1500 rpm and down to 1000 rpm just several seconds after start


Cars are design to run at a higher idle at start up to warm them up quick. There is a sensor that reads water temperature and tells your car's computer how fast to idle. Your RPMs seem slightly high but not out of the norm. Does idle ever drop to around 600/800 after about a minute? If not, your engine temperature sensor maybe defective.

My 96 ford taurus revs high when starting then works it way from 1500 or more down to 800 but fluctuates from 800 to a little over 1000. When putting car in rverse or drive from park engine revs up to...


You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

time has come to pay someone to pull the motor out and replace the clutch, do all the clutch components and resurface the flywheel. If the pedal is up then you do not have an actuator/hydraulic failure, your problem lies within the bellhousing. do some research for clutch kits, i have seen several on ebay for less than a hundred bucks. labor is not going to be cheap.

97 Saturn sc1 engine lacks power after warming up.


Check to make sure that one of the pulleys are not sticking on your serpentine belt line, or better known as the belt drive. Such as an alternator that is that seizing up, or a bad power steering pump.

Problems accelerating


the engine tickover is too slow when the engine is cold its running on cold start, ie:choke,, after it warms up the engine slows down this is what is causing it to stall in gear,, get some one to hold the brakes hard on and with the engine running in gear ajust the tick over till its reving at 750 - 850 rpm the revs will go up a bit when its out of gear,, before you pick a gear to go into push the foot brake down to stop the car lurching,,,

97 SATURN SC1, WONT GO INTO REVERSE AND GOES VERY SLOW


Transmission is not junk. You need to replace the valve body with a rebuilt one. The cause of reverse not working is because the booster valve cannot create sufficient pressure to get into reverse (reverse requires the most pressure). The booster valve is worn down and the valve body needs to be replaced, rebuilt is the way to go. This is from not changing the fluid and filter every 20,000 -- 30,000 miles to keep gunk from building up and wearing down the valve.

The transmission is fine, don't let anyone talk you into putting another one in, especially for thousands of dollars, NOT THE PROBLEM.

2002 ls2, starts, engine revs high and then shuts off.


this is a problem within your throttle body assembly.your idle control valve is most likely blocked and your throttle body is dirty.if this is not it another popular saturn l series problem is a leak in the intake manifold.

Overheating, and reving up and down at idle.


You need some new head gaskets, my friend. Or you have a cracked head... either one = BIG BUCKS. bummer.

If you have runaway reving, you probably have a clogged MAP sensor.
