SOURCE: 2003 suburban idles to low.

the idle speed is computer controlled and not adjustable, slow idle is caused by a dirty intake, do the following.

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

How to Adjust idle RPM for a 2003 honda accord. some people were talking about a screw on the throttle body. but I can't find that screw. How do you go with adjusting this and where to find it ?


First, you shouldn't adjust the idle. If the idle isn't correct, that means there is an issue somewhere - not that the idle needs to be adjusted.

There isn't an adjustment screw. To adjust the idle, you will need to move the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) forwards or backward. To do this, you will need to remove the tamper proof bolt and replace it with one that can be loosened and tightened.

I have a problem with my1989 gmc suburban, the idle is set way too high ( apx 2700 rpm) where is the idle adjustment screw located on the carb?


there is no carb, and no adjustment. if it idles too high, there is a vacuum leak, so check the large hose going from the base of the throttle body to the valve cover. if thats OK, these are known to have a leak at the base gasket, usually at the rear of the throttle body. spray carb cleaner around the base and see if the idle changes, if it does, replace the base gasket.

2003 suburban overheating when aprox stop in trafic for 10 minute


how hot does the temperature get? if it's just above the usual this could just be a different thermostat that the one you had before. If it is getting too hot, especially at idle, I would recommend checking the fan clutch (for mechanical fan) or the electrical fan operation, if the electrical fan doesnt come on, check fuses.

Did you cap off the vacuum line for the heat/Air controller? Vacuum leaks will mess with your engine's sensors, particularly the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor, therefore messing up your mixture.

No way to be specific for all the ground leads.... Follow the main lead off the battery and obviously look for any connectors that are connected to the frame/chasis and check for corrosion!!

My 99 suburban idles at 1000 rpm in park with a new TPS at operating temp. What is the factory idle setting? how do I adjust rpm?


There no adjustment for idle, control by computer, TPS reading should be .50 volt's, you could have a vacum leak, check vacum line and check for vacum leak at base of intake manifold.

2003 Suburban LS 1500. A/C blows warm air when idling for ~3 min then returns to cold when moving.


Either the system is low on refrigerant , the electric fan is not working or the orifice tube is plugged. More than likely the system is low on refrigerant , have it evacuated and recharged.
