Turbo throttles when idle

I replaced my engine less than 1 month ago. When the car is in park the turbo throttles up on its own, the other day it throttled up so high the car shut down. What might be the problem?

You mean the engine speed? This is not good. have not heard of this before. Take it back to who did the engine work.

Eradic idle when in park


Just went through this madness. They replaced the throttle body and it didn't fix the problem. They did the vacuum lines, another NoGo. Replaced the main engine wiring harness runs like day 1. I was told that the harness begins to break down and the performance of the automobile becomes majorly compromised. I would appear that you are having a multitude of performance issues including check engine lights with no registered codes in the computer. Have your mechanic do a engine harness shake test. This will induce the experience.

1996 dodge caravan 2.4 code p1294


on dodge motors
fitted a lot of parts and still no better

the fault code clears and comes back as a intermittent problem

could be electrical voltage drop off or heat related failure

i wonder if your 02 sensor ,the catalytic converter
or other related sensors
are causing the fault to come back
if needed .....fit a new air filter...

how the test is determined

P1294-TARGET IDLE NOT REACHED 3.3L/3.8L
When Monitored and Set Condition:
P1294-TARGET IDLE NOT REACHED 3.3L/3.8L
When Monitored: With the engine idling and the transmission in drive, if automatic.
There must not be a MAP sensor trouble code or a Throttle Position Sensor trouble code.
Set Condition: The engine idle is not within 200 rpm above or 100 rpm below the target
idle for 40 seconds. One trip fault.

POSSIBLE CAUSES
INTERMITTENT CONDITION
IAC MOTOR PASSAGES
VACUUM LEAKS
AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM
THROTTLE BODY AND THROTTLE LINKAGE
TEST ACTION APPLICABILITY

Not knowing exactly what engine you have, I will tell you this much. You'll have an IAC (idle air control) valve on the side of your throttle body, with an electrical connector on it. Not TP sensor that is on end of throttle shaft. The IAC keeps the idle up when engine is under load conditions, such as power steering load when turning, AC turns on etc. They either get dirty on shaft and pintle (pointed part inside throttle body) or just get worn out and don't catch engine to boost idle as required. If you remove it and clean it with throttle body spray cleaner or similar, and spray cleaner in the hole (port) it came out of, you may get it back working ok. If it works good for a while and then starts to act up again, replace it. Don't move the shaft when you get it out, just spray clean the pointed end and shaft as best you can, and put it back in and try it.

You have two coils on this engine. Test each wire for spark with the engine running. You'll find at least one wire not sparking. replace the coil that has the wire that's not sparking.

1994 buick park avenue, idling up and will not idle down


If it's not sticking throttle linkage, and i assume it isn't because you have an engine light on, it's probably a faulty idle control sensor. You can get one at any parts store, and they aren't hard to remove and replace. The parts guy can show you exactly where it is on his screen.
