Idle drops way low with fan,lights,ect..., on@ operating temp195, IAC is good power,no leak, power from computor;yes,under load, lights ect..,what am I overlooking? 91GeoMetro 3 banger


The electrical load on the alternator will pull the engine RPM down. It takes 10 H.P. to run the alternator. The only recourse to low RPM at idle would be to install a larger diameter pulley on the alternator. Extended idle could result in low battery charge rate. Should be fine at hi way speed. The alternator will not put out below 750 Rpm.

94 chevy g10 4.3 idle fine spuder at speed automatic kick down loss of power van shick runs roughly


Its hard to say exactly with out looking at it .But if it idles ok I would tend to think its not the basic electrical system .
I would look at the fuel system test to see how much fuel you are getting .You need more fuel to run at higher RPM under a load so check pump and filter's .See if if reves up under no load ..
If that's not the problem check the exhuast system the cat may be clogging at higher Rpm's do you hear a rattle in the system thats a sure sign the converter on the way out

94 nissan quest has started idling at 500 rpm. I


Jeff did you figure this out. I am dealing with the exact same thing currently. Things to look at are Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF), Throttle position Sensor (TPS), Air Idle control valve. I have played with everything but the Air control valve. I tried three different MAF, including a ghost sensor (circuit to match ressitance). I'm going to investigate the air idle control tommorrow. Let me know if this helps or if you get it figured oot
