Check the fuel supply particularly the fuel filter and pump. Also, check the mass airflow sensor and check the engine intake system and hoses for vacuum leaks.

1986 dodge d100 225 engine dodge oil light goes off when idle stays on when giving it gas

It sounds like the oil sending unit is bad. the safest way to check it is to pull out the sending unit and install an oil pressure gage directly to the motor start it up, bring the RPMs up and see what the oil pressure is. Ideally you want at least 15 psi at an idle and prefereably anything above 25 psi at crusing RPM.

I have a 2003 grand am. When i hit the gas in park or neutral the rpms get to 4k then dip down back to 3500 and bounce around there

on most newer vehicles the rev limiter is lower in park or neutral than in gear. i dont know why gm is doing this i just know that its normal. i dont know what year they started this but im guessing that is what your seeing. does it run fine in gear?

Car engine will not idle engine idles at 3500

Sounds like a defective IDLE AIR CONTROL valve, but before you can confirm you need to proof it out and also look the engine over for vacuum leaks and/or wiring problems. Also find out if you have an engine light and any stored code/s.

(1995 Cadillac Eldorado) - Service Engine Soon light is on.

If this problem just started I would try to get a jump on it. It will be easier to track down if the light just started coming on. Otherwise other problems may come into play and the mechanic will need longer to sort them out. At around 70.00hr.Cheapest fix is to try and drop in a set of plugs. Good luck.
