SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus will not idle down

several things can do this but most likely would be
1 TPS trottle postion sensor = replace
2 stuck butterfly valve inside the trottle body = clean out with trottle body cleaner try to get most of the black build up with a old tooth brush
3 bad trottle cable= feel the cable make sure it moves freely if not replace it

If there is no check engine light on I would go the local auto parts
store and check out the TP sensore first and then the Mass air flow...

SOURCE: 1999 VW Passat low idle

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.

2007 V8 diesel sport. Missing badly at idle (650 RPM) when cold, runs smoothly if revs raised to 1000 RPM. Does not appear to miss under full power, and will generally run smoothly at idle when warm.


most likely bad injector tips
have them serviced and raise the idle to 750 rpms as the lower idle speed may not be raising the combustion pressure temperature to ignite badly sprayed fuel ( diesel has to be atomized not squirted )

I think my care is idleing high


Manual transmission approx 500 - 650 rpm's
Automatic Transmission approx 800 - 1000 rpm's
each manufacturer has slightly different specs. for idle speed variations from carbureted to fuel injected..

This rough idle business; With the AC on at a stop, the idle is about 600 to 700 rpm and vibrates the cabin. Can the dealer change a computer setting to correct this?


Problem on focus too . Without A/C on it idle's smooth . With A/C on the PCM - engine computer should raise the idle rpm. 850 . The only way to raise the idle would be to have PCM flashed programmed with up dated software . Adjusting the idle anyother way would cause check engine light problem , Wouldn't be able to get it to go out. Your best bet ,take it to the ford dealer and have the PCM reflashed .

How to set idle for 1984 mustang 3.8L, 6cyl


Technically the idle speed is not adjustable. The computer controls idle speed with the idle speed control motor.
Base idle is around 500 RPM with normal idle in park at 800.

Engine idles higher at stop light


It has a problem with the idle quality..when you use the heater with the a/c compressor it will raise the idle and get the fuel it needs to run...look for vacuum leaks.....hissing sucking sounds
