The first things I would check is the TPS and the IAC. The IAC may be electronically fine but mechanically may be stuck. The only way to tell is to remove and manually try to push in the plunger or replace with a known good. The TPS will show higher voltage than normal for idle and should be obvious if the scan tool data shows this.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora that has a high idle; had diagnostic done, says to replace PCM. Replaced PCM after having programmed by Chevy dealership in town, and it still has a high idle of 1100 RPMs....


Why wasn't the Throttle Position Sensor replaced? The first suspect should probably have been the IAC (but you would have gotten a code), the next logical step would have been checking for something mechanical like the throttle body being gummed up and needing cleaning, but I would replace the TPS before I'd EVER think the PCM would need replacing...I'd hate to see that bill. I have a 2001 Aurora with a 4.0 and I have replaced the IAC (got one at a salvage yard, out of a Caddy, same one)-it did fix mine, but the next culprit would have been the TPS in any case, PCM's rarely go bad.

2000 oldsmobile alero fast idle


I'm not sure if you've found the answer to your question yet...but i'm having a simlar problem with my car it could possibly be the Throttle Position Sensor. Simple explanation from what I understand it tells the engine how much your pushing on the gas pedal and if this peice is off it can send misreading to the engine causing high idle. I replaced it in my car and it works fine now. Park was $30~ at Auto Zone.
