HI, This vehicles engine uses a idle air control valve commonly called abbreviated IAC. If this valve gets carbon build up around it they sometimes fail to close properly. I have also found that customers complaints of high idle tend to be vacuum leaks around the intakes of these engines. I hope this helps.

Chevy Malibu 2001 with 89,000 miles idling too high during park


Back to the mechanic - sounds like either an IAC motor or TPS sensor is the problem, but also could be the throttle cable (sticking leaving the throttle not fully closed).

Where are the vacum hoses on a 1992 chev astro van


If, while you were in the engine area, you may have knocked the hose for the pcv valve off the carb. That causes the idle to get higher. Good luck.

Where is the idle air control valve located in a 2001 chevy astro van


You'll need to remove the interior engine cover(dog house).Torx screws for the covers, 2 bolts on floor. and bolts against the fire wall (i use a long extension with a swivel socket at the end). The IAC valve is screwed in to the side of the throttle housing (where the gas pedal hooks up to the engine).I can get a pic if you need it.

Saturn 2001 SL idles in neutral between 2000 and 3000 after engine gets warmed up. also blower for heater has bad resistor were is it located so i can replace it?


high idle concern is probably caused by either a sticking throttle plate, defective IAC or the computer is commanding the high idle for another reason.

the blower motor is found behind the glove box in the HVAC case

My 2001 tahoe dies while idling in park. After waiting over night it started and ran fine until allowed to idle in park for a short time. This a 2001 Chevy Tahoe with a 5.3 liter engine and 160,000 miles.


If the only problem is idle and it runs grat above ide then the most likely component is the Idle Air Control valve. This is providing you have no codes stored indicating something else.

How to locate idle air control valve?


It's located on the left rear of throttle body assembly. I looks like a small metal cylinder with two bolts and an oval plug with 4 prongs. Yes you can change it yourself. If you can't find it, go to your local auto parts store and have them show you a picture.

1999 ASTRO VAN ACCELERATES WITH AC ON


It is perfectly normal for the idle speed to increase with the AC on. This is done to ensure that adequate coolant flow is available for the increased strain the compressor puts on the engine.

If the idle increase is too high, there is a safety problem. There is an idle adjustment that can be made to reduce RPM to factory specification when the AC is on.
