Bad idoling My Taurus idols up and down when it is first started (especially in winter) and almost stops completely on the idol down. After the engine gets warm for a few minutes it levels off but still doesn't seem to to be running with full power.

94 camaro v6 engine and the idol runs at 2000 rpms, runs even higher if heater switch is turned on. shop cant figure out issue any ideas?


Not much of a repair shop

Use the codes & reference material to diagnose
the problem

No reason a repair shop can't do that

Leave it there until they drive it & the light comes on

They have a scan tool & have to use it on a road trip
& record the data

Have a 1992 toyota corolla 3 speed auto, that shakes when stopped at a stop light, and when you take off it runs fine. changed plugs cap and rotor and still does it..


Check your engine idol. It could be that your idol speed is set to low. It should probably run at between 800 and 1000 RPM. If it is not then your idol is to low.

Idol to high


Try cleaning the throttle body, especially around the butterfly pivot pin, and the area where the butterfly sits in closed position. Over time, these areas are bad about carbon build-up. Once carbon gets built up, the butter fly can't completely close, which causes the throttle to still be open a little. This can cause higher idol (rpms). Very simple process. Buy throttle body cleaner for $6, remove your air intake hose from the intake. open your throttle and you're see the butterfly open and close. Spray the inside of intake, butterfly. You're see a lot of black carbon run out. wipe clean with a clean cloth. Repeat 2 more times until you don't see carbon running out. Put your intake hose back on, and you may have to turn the engine over a few times to dry the cleaner out. It's gonna sound like it don't want to start, but once the cleaner is dry, it will start and hopefully, this will solve your problem. Also, look at your throttle cable for any hoses, wire or anything to prevent the cable from closing the throttle.

Check engine light on,idols rough,fine at all other speeds.


I decided to check the idol air control valve,when I removed it I found the problem right behind it. The P C V valve hose was just about into where it fastens to the intake,the other end was bad also. Cost me aout $6.00 Where auto parts stores were telling me parts would cost two or three hundred $$.
