Adjusting my idle

Hi -

I need to adjust my idle so my car doesnt stall. How can I do this myself? My RPM is nearly "0" and my engine is very mildly shaking. Seems that it may die on me. I appreciate anyones help.

    hi, i recently replaced my toyota corona engine with a new one which does not have a provision for the sensor behind the engie like the old one thus leaving the capble hanging; could it be the cause of the engine check to come on whenever i immediately start accelerating and never goes off until i hve packed? help.

To itsgr:
What make, model, year is your car? What engine? How many miles?

To deb:
The location you describe may be where the "knock" sensor normally would go. If it is no longer there, it will set a code and turn on the MIL (check engine light). A cheap fix would be to find out for sure what went there, and if it is the knock sensor, find one at a salvage yard, plug it in, and tie it up out of the way so it doesn't move around.

Honda civic low rpm


changing the exhaust system can alter the gas flow and may create problems for the sensors . The HO2s sensor and the O2 sensor may now be operation on the edge of the parameter settings and any exhaust coating on the sensors may be affecting their performance. Run fault codes to check the sensors and sometimes removing them and cleaning them in vinegar to remove the coating will improve the situation. What ever is the problem if it started after the manifold change then that is the area in which to seek answers.

Hi.

Check idle air control system (valve, hoses and wires). Check air intake and check the sensors installed in the air intake. Check vacuum for leaks.

Those listed are the most common faults causing fast idle in this type of engine.

When i turn the A.C. on my RPM flucuates and asks like it bogs my engine down.


This is common. The A/C is drawing power from the engine. The ECM should respond by adjusting idle flow. If A/C causes engine to stall or if "check engine" light is on, get a tune up

1991 Chevy Caprice has a mild miss fire and stall at low rpm: This is my latest update: I checked and cleaned the EGR,PCV,IAC valve, M.A.P sensor and Throttle body(bore/butterfly). with carb cleaner....


Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

Automatic vehicle stalls at low rpm


This is proplem with the IAC valve , try clean the valve and if that doesnt work replace it.

An IAC (idle air control) motor is designed to adjust the engine idle RPM speed by opening and closing an air bypass passage inside the throttle body

If you have a carburator still then you need to know more.
screwdriver method on feel/rpm gauge
Proper exhaust measurement.
Run her up to 650 rpm idle start adjusting mixture screw until max rpm obtained. back out a bit too be lean. Ajust Idle screw again for 650.
Turn on appliances as lighting and airco. If engine starts/tends to stall, vibrate increase the idle a bit more.

You are not ready with the engine if not doing ignition settings and valve clearances as well, etc.
