Be more specific please. Engine Management is a very complicated problem it deals with alot of things the air/fuel ratios, the ignition and spark timing, the balance shafts, and if equipped VVT-I for variable valve timing shafts in SOHC's and DOHC camed cars

Why does engine surge only when a/c is on?

It is supposed to do this. The PCM commands a slightly high RPM when the A/C compressor kicks on and off.

When the ac is on car idols normally once the ac is off car idols very roughly like it wants to stall at times this is only when the ac is off. thanks..

Idle speed is probably too low. Most cars with electronic engine management automatically increase the engine speed when idling to compensate for the extra load of the air con. Unfortunately, with this type of engine management, a lot of cars don't allow you to manually increase the engine idle speed. It has to be programmed in at a Dealers with the correct tuning equipment.

How do you adjust the idle speed on a 07 zetec ka

The idle speed is not adjustable. It is controlled by the computer. If your idle speed is not correct, then your engine management system needs service.

Engine cuts of at low speeds

Ford has a history of problems with their IACV. Idle air control valve. When these go bad, the idle is usually uneven and the engine will die because it is not opening and allowing enough bypass "idle" air around the throttle plate to sustain the engine for idle. A word of caution, If you decide to buy one, don't get the cheap Autozone ones. they don't hold up long. Go for the Ford brand. I would however have someone check it before you spend the money, it may be something completely different.

Motor running uneven ignition timing unstable even at idle speed

If you mean that the idle speed fluctuates, this is normally caused by build up of oil in the throttle valve housing. This oil is blown through the crankcase breather and gets worse as the engine gets old and wears. To remedy this remove intake hose from the throttle valve housing and clean out the oil build up in throttle valve housing in the area of the throttle butterfly. Open throttle valve to enable cleaning.

Running real rough and uneven at idle and slower speeds

Seems like this car have the same symptom wherever it is, I have this trouble as well, I did the tune up, injection cleaning, change spark plugs and spark plugs wires, change the air filter, change the engine mounting but still the same trouble :(

When I start the car it idles high the rpms go up and down

Sounds like you have a dirty EGR (Exhaust Gas Recovery) Valve. There are three things that I think of looking at when someone mentoins uneven running at idle 1) Idle speed air control valve (IAC) - this is small port that is electronically controlled that allows air passed the throttle flap at idle to maintain idle speed. You say you have swapped out your throttle body but it might be good to check that the IAC is clean as most Hondas often fall prey to the same age related faults - spray inlet port with carburettor cleaner and use a bit of old wire to hep clear out any gunk after about 20 minutes. IAC faults generally have the symptom of the car being very reluctant to start but will fire up when given lots of gas. However,as soon as any demand is made on the engine such as power steering or simply engaging the brakes to come to a halt the car will often cutout. 2) Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) tells the engine management system whether the throttle is closed or if open by how much. The symptoms are random often wildly erratic engine idle speeds. 3) The EGR valve - this system is designed to introduce a little exhaust gas back into the inlet manifold to keep the engine ignition temperature low enough to avoid the production of nitrous oxides in the exhaust. This valve looks a bit like an alien space ship about 75mm in diameter. On it top face there is a small vacuum line connector, This vacuum line is connected to the inlet manifold but it may pass through a solenoid valve on the way. This solenoid is for the Engine management system to temporarily prevent the vacuum at engine start up from reaching the EGR thus keeping it closed; the engine temperature is not nearly hot enough, when starting, to cause nitrous oxides in the exhaust. The vacuum introduced to the EGR body pulls on a diaphragm which lifts a valve, immediately beneath to open and this allows a regulated amount of exhaust to pass into the inlet manifold. Connected to the underside of the EGR valve is a metal pipe connected to the exhaust manifold. Faulty EGRs are down to either encrusted carbon deposits holding it open or a broken diaphragm keeping it closed. If closed the engine runs hot and pinks and knocks all over the place. The pipe to to the exhaust manifold can get clogged with carbon deposits and this has the same effect as having a closed valve. If open the car idles unevenly behaving as if there is a leak in the manifold, the open valve is actually just that. Locate the EGR near the throttle body, from the above description you will know it when you see it. Remove the vacuum hose, any electrical connections and undo the retaining bolts and lift clear. Clean everything to like new - the carburettor cleaning spray is again useful here . Applying some suction to the hose connection on the EGR you should see the valve opening and closing. Push a bit of flexible braided (a cut off of handbrake cable is ideal) wire, frayed at the end, to sweep the exhaust connection pipe clean of encrusted carbon. Reinstall everything and fingers crossed job done

Hi the idle speed is to high on my daewoo lanos 1600, there is a soultion but i dont know where the power lead that goes to the speed valve in the solution it says top of engine, but i dont know what it...

there is a screw at the end of the throttle cable. get someone to rev the engine an your see it move.turn the screw anticlockwise and the idle should slow. clockwise will raise the idle speed.
