Posted by on

  • Anonymous Oct 15, 2008

    This problem is intermittent. 
    Idle is normally 900-1000 rmp, sometimes drops to about 500 rpm, and bounces up and down.

Stalling at low idle


I don't know this specific car. But, if it has one, check your Idle Air Valve. This can cause the engine to stall. If you can hold the gas pedal and the engine will continue to run until you let off the gas, it is likely the IAV. It will not necessarily cause the engine to run rough. That could be a number of things like spark plugs, wires or dirty injectors. It could also be a compression problem. Is the check engine light on?

CAR RUNS GREAT, STARTED DIEING WHEN A/C WAS TURNED ON, NOW A FEW DAYS LATER IT DIES EVEN WITHOUT A/C ON, RUNS BUT WILL NOT IDLE


CHECK IDLE SPEED SHOULD BE 650 - 850 RPM. IF IDLE TOO LOW AC WILL PUT DRAG SLOW DOWN ENGINE CAUSING ENGINE TO STALL IF IDLE SPEED IS TOO LOW.

My 1989 cadillac idiles low but once I turn the wheel it cuts off


remove and clean the IAC idle air control it is probably sticking and giving a low idle. or replace it if need be. it should idle at about 7-800 rpms, i think thats why it quits when you turn the wheel. it is putting more stress on the pump and the engine. check idle. Good-day !

ENgine idles too low and sometimes turns off?


If it has'nt been tuned up lately ----check tune and basically sounds like the throttle body idle circuit is plugged up with carbon----try spraying with a carburator cleaner.

adjust the idling, if too low then it can't sustain the power needed to keep the engine running when it engages.

Engine on idle runs high and low, high and low...


Had same problem. Turned out that antifreeze was low causing insufficient water pressure. Could also be a bad sensor. I would check both.
