Question about 1990 Subaru Legacy

Car doesn't idle consistently--revs & almost cuts out

When idling, especially when the car is cold, it will rev up to about 2000 rpm, then back off, almost killing it, before it revs back up again and repeats, over and over.

Check airflow meter, they can sometimes burn out after backfiring. If this is the case the car will struggle to induce air to idle nicely. Once you are up and running things will be fine but when you come to a stop the idle will play up. A burnt out flow meter caused by backfire is the problem.

03 corolla petrol revs up on its own when idling and then settles down again


R u start the car in cold morning or any cold condition? If so, it is normal revs up itself. Sometimes I see some cars revs up to 2000 rpm for 2 to 5 mins, then drop down to 1000 rpm.

When in park honda odyssey revs up and down between 1000 and 2000 RPMs


is the check engine light on also? it sounds like the idle air control valve is bad. this controls the idle of the vehicle. when it is stuck open it causes too much air into the engine and causes it to rev. when it gets to a set rpm, the pcm cuts fuel. then it turns the fuel back on, then the engine revs, then it cuts fuel........code p0505 will prob be set

Wont idle when cold. Especially on cooler mornings. Eventually it works fine. Sometimes it will clear after a hi rpm rev.


have someone check the engine temperature sensor to see what temperature it is telling the computer,if it is not telling the computer the correct temp,the computer won't give the engine more fuel on cold mornings

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
