Here are a few things to try. You could be venting vacuum with a bad intake gasket. Use a spray bottle with water and go along the seams with the engine running to see if you can find any openings. The engine will change RPM if it draws in water.

Autozone or Oreillys will check the engine free with a scanner. Usually a TPS throttle position sensor will code a "check engine" light and a manifold leak won't. The TPS is like a carburetor and controls spark and fuel as it works. It is cheap and simple to replace.

Ford bantam1.6i xlt rocam 2006 .the idling does not stay level it goes up and down


If the battery has just been replaced or discharged this could be normal.

With a battery disconnect the learned calibration of the cars computers are reset to factory settings including idle,

The car needs to relearn the idle and running settings. It can take several minutes and driving for this to occur. The car will in many cases want to stall during this learning cycle.

Note this problem usually will only occur during battery replacement or discharge.

If not associated with a battery disconnect then borrow an OBDII scanner and read the codes. If the car is derivable take it to your friendly auto parts store for a complementary scan tool code readout. The computer information will lead you to the likely sensor culprit.

Hope this helps?

I have a 2002 PT Cruiser. On a cold start it starts on fast idle which is excessively fast. It is actually unsafe to put the car in drive. It will stay on fast idle for 5 minutes before dropping, but then...


code p 1193 refers to inlet air temp sensor problem --circuit high
a faulty ambient air temperature sensor or barometric pressure sensor will cause this effect as the idle control in the ECM is not getting correct temperature readings to set idle speed

Will not drop down from fast idle when first started


It sounds like an automatic choke system. Let it warm up for 5 minutes and then give it gas up to 2000rpm and release.

PVC valve is not metering air correctly, it will appear ok shaking it but looses it ability to maintain proper position causing a medium to gross vacuum leak.
