Hi, i want you to clean the air intake valve and idle speed control valve, follow the procedure below.

Here are the common cause of surges, cold stalls, 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.

Stalling issue?


This sounds like the idle control valve or stepper motor as it's sometimes called needing a good clean out or replacement. When faulty this would cause all the symptoms you are describing.

2006 F 350 6.0 diesel hesitates, stutters when giving fuel around 1800 to 2400 rpm.


This problem is caused by a MAF sensor or even a clogged file pressure rail check both and if those aren't your problems then it could be bad diesel or your idle control is bad check all of the above and replace all if possible

I have a 2002 durmax diesel with a Low fuel rail pressure code and with surging at idle. How difficult is the sensor to replace?


Is it the sensor of air in the fuel rail. Have the fault codes read.
Replace the faulty units with genuine one because most aftermarket units are not set for OEM cpu units and are not completely compatible

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

Hi I HAVE A ISUZU WIZZARD 3.0 WITH 4jx1 engine,it hard to started,diesel knock when it idle,engine light stay on with a code p10193 or p1393,already replace fuel filter,engine oil,train and renew a diesel...


Hi, you problem is the rail oil pressure sensor having a high voltage input -  P0193 code set . This will also cause your faults . 
Change the sensor which is under the cam cover and the smaller of the two there and it will run ok .
You need the sensor set up on a tech II after fitting to run at its best.

Unstable idle


You will need to check the Mass airflow sensor and the Idle position sensor.
