    The idle problem was a bad computer and speed sensor. Runs better than ever before.



    We parked another Cobra next to mine and proceeded to change out sensors and computer....earlier had fixed 3 vacum leaks..but that did not solve the problem..tps,egr valve, dirty mass air wire. dirty throttle body,compression test Great,changed out plugs bypassed MSD dis 4 ignition...we had tried everything unti we switched computers

CHECK FOR VACUME LEAKS,A PROPANE TORCH WITH A 3 FT PIECE OF HOSE ATTACHED (DONT LIGHT IT) WILL FIND A LEAK.TURN ON THE GAS AND RUN THE HOSE AROUND THE INTAKE,BASE OF CARB OR TBI AND ALONG ANY VACUME HOSE . WHEN A LEAK IS DETECTED THE ENGINE RPMS WILL RISE AS THE GAS IS SUCKED IN THE ENGINE

98 ford escort zx2 dies when it drops below 1000 rpms


I doubt the two problems are related.
The computer uses an idle speed control valve to regulate idle speed. The valve controls the amount of air entering the intake.
You should have a check engine light on and also a stored trouble code for the valve. It could also be a problem with the throttle plate in the throttle body.

94 jeep grand cherokee. starts,idle. throw warmup. as soon as I touch the excellerator let up the rpm drop & engine stalls.


Most low idle speed problems on these engines are due to a faulty idle air control valve but since you state the idle will go up and return to idle then i would say it is working properly i think you have a throttle body coking problem ( dirt and grit accumulates around the butterfly valve in the throttlebody ) to fix this simply remove the fresh air hose from the throttlebody and open the throttle all the way up use a clen rag and wipe clean you may use a solvent such as B12 on the rag but dont use too much 1_4_2013_4_54_06_am.jpg

I have a 1992 Honda prelude that when it starts up it idles at 1100rpms fine but after it runs for like five minutes it drops idle to 900rpms and as soon as I hit the gas it stalls out..... It starts right...


on a cold start car will idle fast till it warms up then will drop to about 1000 rpm, try increacing idle speed so when it warms and drops it should stay idleing

I am currently having idling problems at stops the engine will drop well below 1000 rpms and sometimes stall but will restart right away. However the car still runs good on the highway.


hey im having the same problem for the most part....and i would try turing on the lights and the AC basically anything electric...if it gets worse or dies than i would say its your alternator. good luck

Cobalt not running at low rpm.......


All are possibilities but EGR valve makes the most sense. It's famous for causing poor idling and/or stalling at low RPMS. Best of luck.

2001 Cadillac Deville; noise after the engine starts


The whine sounds like the power steering or the alternator, as far as the idle issue goes try this clean the intake throttle body and idle speed control valve with carb spray, disconnect battery for 5 min. then reconnect and drive a few miles to reset idle strategy. The car will try to die when you spray the intake, hold the idle up to prevent that, use at least 1/2 the can of carb spray.
