The solenoid in the transmission it has to be checked.. It may also possible that the transmission has a very low amount of transmission fluid. However, if the fluid level is enough, another reason is Bad fluid pump or Gear selector linkage problem.Most probably the shift solenoid is got faulty in the transmission and it has to be replaced. --------- Check out.Keep updated. Thanks.

Honda crx with auto transmission idles roughly in drive or reverse. AC on makes it worse.

There are two coolant lines that connect to this Honda IAC to help quiet the operation of the valve. The part number for a OBDI 1992-1995 Honda Civic Idle Air Controller is 36450-P28-A01. While the OBDII version of this valve is 36450-P2J-J01, and the two units are very similar in design and execution. The EACV or Electronic Air Control Valve is a big part of maintaining your Honda Civic idle. If you've checked your IAC and your Honda still suffers from a surging idle, check your FITV. This Honda Idle Air Controller or IAC is under the throttle body and incorporates into the throttle body passages o locate your Fast Idle Thermo Valve, remove the intake snorkel and locate the FITV beneath your throttle body opening. If your SOHC engine is still having problems, check our guides above on how to check your FITV as well as your IAC. To check this operation, remove your air intake pipe and use your fingers to plug the passages in the lower left hand corner of your throttle body opening. If your idle surge does not go away, unplug your Idle Air Control valve and if that stops your idle surge, your IACV must be replaced. Follow our instructions on how to replace your Honda Civic Idle Air Control Valve. Need to raise your Honda Civic idle or having problems maintaining idle? You can adjust the base idle by unscrewing or screwing in the Idle screw on your throttle body. This screw allows air to bleed into the passages on the backside of your throttle body, as shown above. To learn how to adjust Honda Civic idle speed, you will not need to remove anything. With a standard screwdriver, simply locate your throttle body and Idle screw.

Have an automatic transmission, 2001 Kio Rio. Problems when idling, sometimes high, sometimes low and will stall but starts right back up. I've replaced the Mass Air Sensor, spark plugs, air filter, coil....

It sounds to me like you have replaced everything except the most likely cause of your idle control problem...The Idle Air control. (IAC) (or Idle Speed Control Valve) It is located onthe throttle body and looks like the picture below.

2003 chev impala cold engine every thing works properly. drive until engine is hot go into store for 30 start engine i have to press accelerator just a little.

Clean out your throttle body, the IAC (idle air control) valve may be sticking from carbon build up. You can get a can of throttle body cleaner at Auto Zone or most auto parts store and follow the instruction on the can.

Make sure you use all of the can and you may want to do it twice with two cans of throttle body cleaner just get it all cleaned out. The IAC controls the amount of air enters the engine to get it started and to idle smoothly with the different loads. A stuck IAC valve will give issues to what you have described.

Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

How t0 ajust the ilde screw on chev lumina

There is no idle adjustment screw. Idle is controlled by the ECM (Engine Control Module.) It controls what is called the IAC (Idle Air Control) motor, located in the throttle body. The throttle body and the IAC motor pintle have a tendancy to develop carbon deposits from the PCV system.

In order to fix your problem, you'll need to wipe the carbon deposits from the throttle body. First, purchase a can of throttle body/air intake cleaner from your local auto parts store. Remove the air intake boot from the throttle body, exposing the throttle blade inside. Open the throttle and spray it and the throttle blade down liberally with the cleaner. I like to let it soak for a little while, re-spray, then wipe it all clean with a rag. Repeat if necessary until it's clean and clear of deposits. If it has never been cleaned before, you'll notice a lot of black 'soot' deposits in there. When it's clean, you'll notice that the throttle blade most likely moves better, without sticking.

Re-install the air intake boot and start it up. It will be a little hard-starting at first, as the engine needs to **** in all the rest of that cleaner and burn it off. It'll only happen this one time and once it burns off, the engine should idle normally. If it still appears to be a low idle, you may need to consider taking a closer look at the IAC motor.

I hope this helps! :)
