Rpm running high when park, and running at very low speed when on drive


I am guessing the idle air valve isn't operating because it is either stuck, defective or not receiving signals causing it to adjust or maintain the idle speed.

Stops running


What kind of car is it? Is it manual or automatic transmission? Also, I would suggest checking your idle air control valve. That allows the cars idle to rise when you come to a complete stop. If it sticks then the vehicle will idle too low and stall. Or it could be that your idle adjustment is too low, that is a screw located on the throttle manifoldddepending on your vehicle type. I hope this at least put a you in a better direction.

I have a 93 crown victoria and it runs great but more often when I put it into park it doesnt want to start again. I have to reput it in park 3 or 4 times.


Bad PRNDL switch(park/reverse/neutral/drive/low).May be adjustable,but most likely the switch is bad.As a temporary/free solution,try starting in Neutral(USE YOUR PARKING BRAKE!)

Transmission fill, how do you fill


If adding from empty, (just installed new or used unit) put at least four or five quarts in (through dipstick tube). Then, start the engine, leave it in park on a level surface and continue filling 'till it reads full on the dipstick. After it's full put the rear on jackstands and run it in drive and let it shift gears, idle down and shut it off. Don't attempt to put it into park 'till the rear wheels stop turning. Then put it on the ground and re-check level.
If adding to a low unit or after a filter change, just fill on a level surface running till it reads full. In either case, when finished, drive it and when you return re-check level. Always check for leaks.

My car is cut off complete when i drive, but in "P"parking is no problem, what can be?


To answer your question I must put this in two parts , Firstly if the idle is low and you shift from park to drive and the engine stalls this is due to the idle being too low. When you shift from park to drive the transmission puts extra load on the engine causing it to idle lower and thus can stall. Remedy to fix is to either screw up idle adjuster but most times it's because of built up carbon in the intake throttle body causing the accelerator flap inside to not fully close . This causes the throttle positioning switch mounted on the side of the throttle body to send the wrong signal back to the computer saying that the car is not at idling position when it is. Remedy to fix this is to spray in some Carby Clean into the throttle body and then some more while the car is running, all while holding revs up on motor so it will not stall ( use the whole can ).
Now the second part is that you can have a bad wiring problem with either a broken wire or bad connector . When you put the car into Drive from the park position the engine will rock ( this is on all front wheel drive vehicles ) If you have a broken wire or bad connector some where between the motor and cars wiring loom by the engine moving it can open circuit any connection that controls engine running . Remedy to fix is to put the car into park and physically move and jiggle wiring in engine bay until symptoms occurs , then it's up to you to repair the fault

I have a 2000 chevy silverado, i am looking for curb idle and tune up specs , it seems that the idle is low when parked, 500+ -- and when done running around it may be as high as 950 rpm, when i turn it oo...


T here are no adjustments they are computer controlled, you can not adjust them, what you need to do is check the idle air control valve it sounds like its bad and not working this is common, when start the truck it should idle up and slowly drop to idle replace that valve.heres a picture of it.its located on intake on throtlebody. hope this helps.also idle spec is 650rpm at idle.f3cecb3.jpg

Runs good but idle really rough


Hi,
I think the solution to your problem is to check the idle speed which should read 850rpm. If it's less then you should adjust the idle speed screw on the throttle body.
Cheers.
