Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
I've got a 2001 Malibu with 2 problems. Sometimes when I come to a stop the engine wont idle down. It stays at 1700 to 2200 RPM. And also the Torque Converter doesn't always lock in which I notice by the RPM gauge. With both problems I've hooked up my EZ-Scan 6000 while these problems are happening and haven't seen anything out of the ordinary. The oxygen sensor changes between .1 and .8. The engine is in closed loop.The coolant temp is 195. No check engine light. Thank you for your help.
I would check the iac valve on all three of your vehicles and on the ones that are sticking and wont idle down i would also verify that the throttle plate in your throttle body is not hanging up on a bur or something.
