If the engine is surging fast and then slow every few seconds it is most likely the air mass sensor MAF. It is sited on a collar on the air ducting just after the air filter box. Start the engine and leave it it to idle. To confirm the diagnosis there is a simple and free way to check.Start the engine and then disconnect the plug to the MAF. If the engine now begins to idle evenly (it might be faster or slower than usual but no longer surging) this indicates that it is the MAF at fault.

How do I adjust idle on 2009 Toyota Corolla 1.8 liter


There are no provisions for adjusting the idle . The computer through the use of the IAC valve - idle air control controls the idle . There is a base idle set at the factory an should not be changed or messed with . What idle problem are you having ? low or high Could be IAC valve or air passages plugged . High idle the throttle plate could be gummed up an sticking ! If you were to change the base idle you cause check engine light problems .

My van is idle high i cleaned the throttle boady and it idle down the a few hours later its high idle again why i replaced two sensor and still idle high


Hi Alexandra, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

There are several things that can cause high idle, but the 2 most common problems are as follows.

(1) You could have a vacuum leak somewhere on the engine. Here is how to check for that issue. Here's what I want you to do: Buy a can of CARB Cleaner and while the engine is running spray around the Intake Manifold, the manifold is the thing the throttle body sit on. Also spray around all the vacuum line as well. If while spraying there is a change in the idle speed then you have found your leak. If there is no change then move on to step 2.

(2) Sometimes when you have a high mileage vehicle parts begin to ware out or can also begin to stick in place. Here something you can check. Idle Air Control Motors can start sticking from corrosion build up and can cause a high idle issue. Here what I want you to do. Start the engine and let it idle, while its idling I want you to tap on the Idle Air Control Motor If it idles down to normal idle speed replace the motor. The motor mounts onto the throttle body and most of them are round. Once you replace it and start the engine you'll notice that its idling real high, :This Is Normal, just let it idle until the engine controller resets the idle speed to normal.

Hope this helps and should you need further help please visit my auto repair website. http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

I have a check engine light on. I had 2 O-2 sensors replaced and the next day the light came back on and it reads bank 1 sensor 1 and bank 2 sensor 1, engine running lean. I took car back and mechanic said...


Probably a faulty Mass Airflow Sensor.These have a high failure rate.Road test with scanner and watch the MAF readings under load,should be able to reach 120 grams per second.If the readings are low,replace sensor.

Check your IAC motor (Idle Air Control) It could be sticking open.
Ps. Might be called Idle Speed Control motor it depends on the make and i forget what chevy calls theres.

Idled high, replace IAC and PCV, now idles low and stalls


On modern day cars the parts that get fitted need to be adapted to the ECM using a decent diagnostic machine. I bet that this was not done and the car is now suffering as a result.
Something to try is resetting the ECU, simply disconnect battery for 10 minutes, reconnect, then start car from cold *without touching gas pedal* and leave idling until the rad fan comes on (this resets all the base idle settings) then take it for a drive - hopefully will solve the problem

2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low


yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

2003 MR2 will not idle


Possible throttle control motor failure. Possible Idle Air Control Valve failure.
Is the "Check Engine" light on? Hard to determine without more info. Sorry.
