My truck will start but i have to hold the accelerator down until i warms up (5 min or so). it seems like the idle is really low. does that have to do with the carburator acting up?

Engine idles up to 2500 and after 5 or 7 seconds, goes back down to 1200 rpm 2002 escort SOHC


Clean out the throttle body carefully and replace the auxilliary air idle valve. There is a resetting process for this valve so dont just fit and hope!
Check on Google or forums but i think ...when fitted you turn on ignition but dont start car , then put the accelerator pedal slowly to fully open, hold it for a min then release. start and drive car until warm and the recheck.
If the idle is high then settles it is not an air leak. It is something stuck that then releases which is only throttle flap or idle valve. It is always a goid idea to replace fuel, oil, air filters on normal service intervals.

Check coolant temp sensor if car runs okay after first start up. If it does not run OK after getting engine warm, probably idle air control valve.

98 explorer 4.0 SOHC wont idle and stalls when weather is below 40 degrees. worse when colder. Just had tune up, new airfilter new fuel filter but problem did not get better.


you have a bad idle air control valve. its job is to have motor rpm high until the motor warms up then turn it back to normal.

2500 HD chevrolet low idle problem


Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Chevy Malibu Cold Idle Problem


Check the water coolant thermostat. If it is stuck in the "open" position you are heating up all the water in the coolant system and this will take time. The thermostat keeps the water in the engine until warmed up to almost normal running temperature, only then does it allow the coolant to enter the radiator.

Hey when i start my car every morning my car idle going from 1500 to 2000 up and down after for like for 5 to 10 min or when the car warm it stop and goes back to normal and my check engine light it on can...


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
My car will not idle properly until after it is warmed up.(1995 Olds. Cutlass Supreme 3.4)
It wants to idle up and down between 1000 and and 2000 and will stall out if I don't keep it revved up at 2000 until it warms up.
Thank you and have a great day.

High idle/low idle pattern


This issue is caused by the egr valve being stuck open, more than likely. Just remove it and clean the plunger on it. Also clean out the two ports that are in the intake. Check out saturnfans.com for more information. I hope this helps.
