There to many reason why if you have an Idle problem. Here are some example.
1. You may have a vaccume leak.
2. misfiring (spark plug)
3. Sensors on the engine 02 or EGR valve sensor.or EGR valve.
4. manifold Intake leak
5. cloged trottle
6. coil or relay fuses.
7. fuel filter or fuel pump ( I hope is not the fuel pump) lol.
My best BET is use a high power clean GASOLINE for tree days and see if your Idle problem change, and if there is no change, GO to Autozone or any car parts dealers and kindly ask them to borrow there scanner to diagnose your car. Good Luck. Reginskie. :-)

Any chance this fault has happened just after topping up engine oil. Oil filler cap not seating properly will give same symptoms. The cap and surround have arrows that need aligned in order for it to be fully seated. Check oil cap first.

Hi billberger2

When the air conditioner turns on, the car computer also increases the engines revs to counter the load of the air con. It should not generally be noticeable however. Will do some research to see why. :)

Surges are usually from dirty throttle body's, idle air control motors, or airfilters. I would clean or replace these first. Other things could be O2 sensors, or bad catalytic converters.

the compressor that pumps up the air suspension does make a horrid noise, and if you can turn it off, like I could in my crown vic, just long enough to see if that is indeed the compressor making the noise you hear, then try that. My switch was located in the trunk.

Runs hot at idle and on highway replaced fan clutch thermostat flush and fill


Hi, you have either a bad cooling fan motor, or a bad relay for the cooling fan motor.

When it begins to heat up, look and see if the fan is running. You can go to a parts store and buy the relay, they will show you where to put it in. If that doesn't fix it, then you need to have the fan motor tested. It could also be a circuoit in the computer gone bad. This happens quite frequently.

The reason it heats while at idle but not while moving is, when you are moving, air flows through the radiator. When stopped, the fan has to push the air. If you have AC, all fans should run when the AC is on.

Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?
