How do you set the idling on a 1990 chevrolet cheyenne?


If it has a carburator (not fuel inj) there is an idle adjustment screw at your throttle linkage.
With fuel injection, check for vacume leaks.

I disconnected my battery in 08 tundra and now it wont idle


disconecting batt resets the computer. now it needs to learn how to set everything to run again. disconnect batt for atleast 60 seconds, re atach, start car it will start and die(dont press gas) do this over and over until it idles (could take up to 10 times). by pressing the gas you make the computer think it is idling to high so it keeps turning down the idle. it will idle fine after reseting computer and starting several times without hitting gas peddle.

Start with the idle needle screw first, the idle mixture screw. Seat it all the way in, first-don't overtighten and damage it, just seat it lightly, and back out two full turns. Run the engine and set the adjustment by ear to get your best lean idle: start turning the screw in (clockwise) 1/8 or 1/4 turn at a time till engine stumbles, dies, or runs rough. Keep the engine running, and turn screw out (counterclockwise) a little at a time till you hear the idle dropping. Now between those two settings is your best lean idle. Turn the screw in, a little at a time and wait for engine to respond, tiill you get the highest idle speed. Now set the other idle screw, curb idle, to the idle setting for your truck, probably about 700 rpm. You can move back and forth between the screws to get the best steady idle. Just don't over do it on the idle mixture screw.
Good luck.

1992 Lexus S300 Automatic. Car drive perfectly fine. Problem is sometime when I start the car, it should idle and shut off within 5 seconds. Doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes. Sometimes it d


Without any other symptoms it is hard to diagnose; could be water in the fuel or a plugged up air filter, that effects idle first, take it out and see if it idles fine, if so get a new one. Take out fuel filter and dump in a glass bowl and analyse for water... get a new one... Is it different when the engine i hot or cold?

Really rough engine idle at cold start up,, reving the engine seems to smooth it out,,,,


Some causes about rought idle could be:
- Valve adjustment
- Incorrect ignition timing,
- Vacuum leaks
- Bad ignition wires (Test w/ ohmmeter)
- Incorrect idle speed
- Cold Start Injector always "ON" (Revised injector time switch avail.)

A source of rough idle in EFI engines is air leaks or vacum leaks these leaks will upset the fuel mixture without triggering any codes. A bad oxigen sensor will also cause a rough idle, but you should see a code for it ( I think is number 5, but check it).

A good place to start would be an inspection of the spark plugs, plug wires, ignition timing, and idle speed. Next would be valve adjustment. Don't overlook the simple things.

Hope this helps, keep us updated and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Car won't start the first time, batteri low voltage so after many tries ,finally it starts


well you ve to use a voltmeter check the battery before it stars and then while idling while idling volts must be about 13v or so. if you got your 13 while idling just replace your battery, if you got less then 12v while idling your problem is the alternator. if you got good volts at any time, motor off or idling your problem is your starter...

1979 cj replased carb idles tohigh


Even with a rebuilt carb you have to make the adjustments. Check the choke adjustment and set the fast idle. If choke is to tight it will be hard to start and take a long time to idle down. The fast idle sounds like it is high also.
