Hi, I have a VW EOS 2007, check eng light on, 008583 - Bank 1; System too Lean at Idle P2187 - 004 - - MIL ON, then, 004369 - Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor Regulation: Bank 1


The O2 sensor is most likely the issue. Also, try cleaning the Throttle Body Injector with cauberator cleaner or tbi injector. Build up within the TBI may be causing a gas deficiency which causes it to run lean. If that doesn't help, try running a higher octane fuel, about 93 octane minimum. This will causes ANY debree in the injectors to be cleared.

My daughter has an '88 F250 with the 460. Recently the engine races when starting and running, never going back to idle. Check Eng light is on


Have them spray (lightly) starting fluid around the intake with the truck running. If there is a leak the engine will idle up even more. They may also just need to adjust the throttle linkage.

My 2003 Dodge neon shakes pretty violently while in idle. The acceleration is also off, yesterday I tried to pull out of a gas station and it wouldn't accelerate past 10mph until i hit the brake a


Before you start checking and touching sesitive parts such as map sensors, and 02sensors, or even think of buying $40.00 - $100.00 parts, I'd suggest you scan over all of your vacume lines(hoses), just in case one of them has a hole,cut, or torn. That's what I experienced. My 84 GMC pick-up didn't pass inspection because the check engine light on, and idle was rough and shaking. Everyone was suggesting same parts as here, on my expense. I was a little sceptical on guessing $40.00-$100.00 parts. So the next day I was looking at my engine, and heard a small hissing noise. I followed the noise, and low and behold! A torn 1/2"x 3"-90 digree, $5.00 vacume hose, that was resting above the hot valve cover. Had a small burnt hole. I replaced it,disconnected battery,drove the truck about 45 miles. No ckeck eng. light,smooth idle, and past inspection. Good luck, Frank.

Hello: Remove the ducting going from the air cleaner to the throttle plate, clean the carbon off the throttle plate and the throttle body bore. Do not spray excess carb cleaner into the throttle body. Hold the throttle plate open with your hand and spray carb cleaner on a soft rag and clean off carbon. When finished key on engine off for 10 seconds key off for 10 seconds do this a total of three tines.
