Make sure there are no broken hoses on the intake manifold, or anywhere else under the hood. There are many hoses of many different sizes to be considered,, so check them all. Listen for rushing air, or a whistling sound. If you suspect an intake leak, briefly spraying small amounts of WD-40 ( without the long red straw attached) at a leak will change the speed of the idle....this would indicate that you are on the right track. A leak would cause a high idle, but maybe not enough power to keep the car running under load at low speed. As unwanted extra air is introduced into the manifold from any source, the fuel mixture can get leaned out causing a higher idle and a loss of power. Good luck.

Why does my 2005 monte carlo idle high at stop signs/stop lights but not when i start it only when driving then when i shut the car off and start it again the idle is normal


check if the condition occurs when you have your foot on the brake at stop signs-stop lights. It may be an air leak in the brake booster that is allowing air into the manifold and altering the mixture to lean.

Come to stop truck wont idle it shutts off


That's a very high rpm for an idle! It should be between 700 to 9oo rpm. This truck needs a tune up, at least!

Idle is high at start - 1800 rpm. Seems like excessive white smoke from exhaust. Put into reverse and back out of driveway it has a regular shudder (bump bump bump) but not hard metal grinding sound.....


white smoke out of the exhaust would be a sign that it is burning coolant... if it goes away after it warms up, it could just be condensation inside the exhaust pipe. 1800 rpm is a very high idle, maybe have your IAC motor on the throttle body checked... check engine light? if so have the code read at your local auto zone.

Car wont always start. idles high and wants to stall when taking off from a stop sign or traffic light. engine light stays on


you may have a bad idle control sensor. is your check engine light on? if so,then you can have it coderead at autozone or advance auto for free. but the check engine light has to be on in order to diagnose it,for free.thank you for choosing fixya.com.

I cant remember what I had replaced about 5-6 months ago, seems like it was a sensor. My 1993 Ford Explorer is not running or idling at normal speed. When I pull up to stop it is like it stays engaged and...


listen for a hissing noise(vacuum leak around the pcv elbows or upper intake gaskets) this will cause a high idle set off lean codes which will say bad o2 sensors alson check idle air control valve which is located by throtlle body this will stick causing the vehichle to not run at idle sometimes taking it off and cleaning the carbon buildup out will fix the problem use some break cleaner
