Could be a bunch of stuff. Check for codes first. If no codes, check vacuum connections, especially around the throttle body. May also want to clean your MAF sensor if you have more tha 100k mikles on it.

03 corolla petrol revs up on its own when idling and then settles down again


R u start the car in cold morning or any cold condition? If so, it is normal revs up itself. Sometimes I see some cars revs up to 2000 rpm for 2 to 5 mins, then drop down to 1000 rpm.

Hi Fatima, Have the intake ducts checked for any breakage and make sure all vacuum tubes are fitted correctly and not broken or loose. Also have a diagnostic scan carried out on the vehicle to determine if there any faults recorded. Regards John

I need to know how to get my rear passenger window in my 2005 vw beetle convertible back on it's track


If the glass fell down you need a new window regulator....take a chair with you to the VW parts counter so you can sit down when they tell you how much they cost !!

Last one I did was in a 2004 VW NB convertible..... $800.00 installed

Vw polo maintains engine revs when foot is off the accelerator.


You need to check the cable the runs from the gas pedal to the engine, it might be rusty and need some drops of penetrating oil at the point it meets with the engine accelerator valve.

Dash noise from VW Beetle


Must be a bad front wheel bearing. Does the pitch change as you speed up and slow down?

BMW 535 auto gearbox issue?


hello jimandsuecla, you could potentially have a trans torque converter that is staying engaged. If the converter does not release, it would be similar to slowing down a manual transmission in first gear and not pushing in the clutch. You could also potentially have an idle valve that is sticking/binding and not responding enough to change in rpm and load. Does the car stall when the a/c is on and when the a/c is off? Have you had any shifting concerns. What is the current idle rpm reading while in gear with the a/c on or off?Any additional info will be helpful.Thanks

VW Golf MK3 1996 P - Car cuts out when slowing down. Battery and Oil lights come on. Restart the car then starts juggering. Its not a fluid purring from the engine.


i would start by cleaning out the throttle body. they collect soot and not have to be a lot either for it to mess up the idle speed, i had trhis on mine soon as i dipped the clutch to slow down the rpm dropped to about 400 to stall, i cleaned throttle body out ( taking air intake off and wipe round inside and the butterfly will be enough) and now it idles and the rpm dont drop below 900
