Question about 1993 Saturn SW2

1 Answer

1994 SW2

I have a 94' SW2. I just bought it and it has a high idle around 2500 rpm. I was told the throttle positioning sensor was changed and it still persists. I disconnected the battery and touched the cables together and checked for vacuum leaks and still the same thing. What would be my next step?

Thank you,
Ron

Still sounds like a vacuum leak or Idle air control valve sticking open. May want to recheck the tps sensor because sometimes they can be put on wrong and hang the throttle open. I you still have questions please ask. Hope this helps.

98 eclipse 2.0 idles high at 2500 rpms an I just replaced the throttle positioning sensor


sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. any air entering engine not passing through the throttle body will cause engine to race. a whistling sound is sometimes a sign of vacuum leak but not always audible. propane is the recommended method finding leak but I find this unreliable. spraying carb cleaner around suspect areas and listening for a rpm change is more successful. just remember carb cleaner is extremely flammable and caution must be used.

Throttle position sensor may be at fault or the throttle body may need cleaning. If so equiped, the egr valve could be at fault.

ok a couple of things to try one is loosen the throttle cable so it has a little play in it and then you can check for vacume leaks using carb cleaner if rpms change you have a leak

sounds like your throttle positioning sensor is not set right so i would undo the two phillips heads that hold it and turn it till the idle doesnt fluctuate should be turned most of the way to the front of the truck. Also check your idle screw that throttle body could be set different.

My 1987 turbo toyota supra will only rev up to 2500 rpm then cut out like a governer. when it drops to about 2000 rpm it will rev back up only to 2500 rpm. at an idle it runs rough


The throttle position sensor has an idle switch in it that tells the car's computer that the throttle is positioned at idle. If the idle switch sticks in the idle position, the computer will not allow the engine to rev more than 2500 rpm. In your case, I think the switch is stuck.

First, see if you can get the trouble codes to come up. Rig a jumper wire and jump between the "T" terminal and the "E1" terminal in the car's "Diagnostics" box. It is a small black box on the driver's side of the engine compartment near the battery. Open the lid and on the inside of the lid it has a map of the terminals.

Once you hook up the jumper wire, turn the ignition switch to on but do not start the car. If there are codes, the check engine light (orange) will blink the 2 digit code. It blinks the first digit, pauses, then blinks the second digit. The code for the throttle position sensor is code "41". That is, four blinks...pause...then one blink. If this code comes up, change the throttle position sensor. (If there are no codes, the check engine light will steadily blink once per second until you turn the key to off.) Don't forget to remove the jumper wire when you are finished.
