Change your coolant temperature sensor for the computer.(not the one for the temperature gauge).They are located one beside the other,under the distributor cap.The parts supplier will know which one you need.When you start the car cold it usually idles 1800 to 2000 rpm for a minute or so and as the resistance starts to decrease,the rpm drops.after a couple minutes the rpm goes to 1000 rpm.People that are in the habit of driving the car right away at 2000 rpm are putting a huge stress on the axles,and find that they are replacing them every 100000 km.It also wears out your brakes faster .When the sensor goes bad,it causes a fluctuating idle .

Why would the rpm for my 1997 Nissan Maxima go down to 550 when the car is in the idle position? The RPM's of my car go down to 550 when the car is at a stop light.


I don't really know where they should be in idle on your car, but if you don't apply your gas pedal, the RPM's should be low. My 18 wheelers RPM's are down to 500 in idle position and go up to 2300 when I step on my "diesel" pedal. If in neutral or park and you step on the gas...do your RPM's go up? If yes, all should be okay.

My 1997 Chrysler Concord idles at 2500 to 3000 rpm when first started and when it warms a little it idles at 2000 rpm and stays there. When I start it right after I turn it off, it starts at 2500 rpm then...


Maybe a short to the TPS or something shorting it out. There's also the IAC that really controls the idle but usually it will cause the RPM's to go up and down a little erratic if bad. The MAF sensor can cause major problems as well but since you already swapped the TPS and it helped and then stopped I would focus on that sensor and especially it's wiring to and from the ECM. Be careful with the sensor signal wire to the ECM can blow it if more than 5v passes or spikes.
