Sounds like something is going on with your timing or vacuum advance. if it runs well and has normal power at higher rpm's that's my call. you didn't say what year your car is.

Loss in engine power, sluggish responses, low top speed, etc.


If your car has
  1. Poor fuel responses
  2. Lost its "power"
  3. Low RPM
  4. Lower top speed
  5. Burns a lot of fuel
Then it could be because of carbon build-ups in your engine's combustion chamber. This is left behind with unburned fuel. It causes poor acceleration, a loss in power, lower top speed, and burns more fuel than it really has too. Not to mention causes smoke belching.

The best way to get rid of that would be to have a carbon ridding solution injected into the combustion chamber. The solution will liquify the carbon and other build-ups, which would then restore the "power" of your car. You'll get better acceleration, higher rpm and top speed, save fuel, etc. have a mechanic do it for you. It's alot cheaper and faster than having the engine overhauled (overhaul could trigger "loose compression").

Rpm problems with no check engine light on


If the RPM is high check for a vacuum leak. Examine all vacuum hoses for cracking or disconnections. If no problem is found, spray carburetor cleaner on the intake manifold and any other gasketed areas on the top of the engine. If, when spraying, the engine RPM fluctuates, then suspect a gasket leak where the spray is entering the engine. Also check throttle body for sticking. Clean it with carburetor cleaner.

Low RPM could indicate a clogged fuel filter, low gas, dirty or bad fuel injectors. If engine idle is low because it is running poorly (e.g., a misfire), check engine for misfire. Misfires can be caused by bad spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, bad fuel injectors, a bad coil pack, low compression in a cylinder, etc. Check the obvious cheapest things first.

If RPM is varying up and down, check Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) for sticking or obstructions. You may need professional help at this point.

Low rpm 500rpm


IF you have changed the air intake system then you interfere with the air velocity that the sensor reads to judge how much air is required by the engine You will probably experiencing other problems as well such as poor fuel economy and lack of power at certain revs.. If you want to use the mods you have made you may have to have the chip reprogrammed

2 problems: (1)Intake gasket leak (2) low power above 2500 RPM


sounds more like 1 problem.
Fix the intake gasket to get the proper fuel/air mixture and that will correct the poor running condition.

Oil lamp lights at 750rpms


750 rpm?

your revs are too low.

The engine speed drives the oil pump via the timing belt.

too low revs = poor pump speed = low pressure.

I'll bet when you rev the idle speed faster, the warning goes off?
