Transmission slipping i would say changing the trans filter would cure that problem unless your are having valve body problems

RPM's rev high and low


"Could this be a throttle positioning sensor problem?" - probably not. The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) tells the computer how hard you are stepping on the gas. It does not really control idle speed.

Your problem is more likely the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. This is a small electric valve that the computer can open and close in small steps to set the idle RPM at the desired point (a little higher when cold, then down to normal speed when warm). The IAC valve is notorious for getting all crudded up inside. Then it sticks open too much (really fast idle speed) or sticks shut (really low speed).

You can try taking it off the engine, cleaning it with carb cleaner spray, and putting it back on. That is easy and cheap.

If cleaning does not fix it, you need to buy a replacement valve and put it on. Pretty easy to do but costs more $$$.

I have mitsubishi pejero IO 2003 model car. RPM of the car shows high when driving (around 4000 rpm at 100km speed) but rpm is normal without accelerator. after travelling 60km car gives jerks and speed...


Pull your transmission (gearbox) oil dipstick and look at the oil. It should be a clean red colour. If brown or black change the oil as soon as possible because it is burnt and old ... you have slipping.

My 2003 suburban seems to run at a higher rpm.


Hummm, 2000 rpm does not seem high, really. But another item to look at is your FAN. The clutch fan fails and drives the fan full engauge. Sounds like a jeep...massive sounding, relating to engine RPM, but not necessarily different.

I mentiont his because a trans does not typically fail and give a few hundred RPM. Usually a slipping sensation is described....

Change your main relay assembly under the dash on drivers side. I was able to get my small hands under there and change mine out readily--not easy to get to as I didn't want to take the dash apart, but I got it done. If you have other problems after then find you a used TCU unit and change it out (passenger side where they put their feet, pull the carpet up, you will see easy, easily replaceable).

Intermittent High Idle, Dies on cold starts, bad mileage


These cars are notorious for intake manifold leaks. This could also be a throttle position sensor. If you have a MIL (check engine light) I would scan it with an OBD II scanner and pull the relevent code off the scanner it will give us a much more accurate direction to proceed
