SOURCE: Low idle rpm up and down

To solve your distributor oil problem you unfortunately need to replace the distributor assemble. It is not serviceable.

I had the same trouble with my 93 Trooper.

I went on a sensor-changing spree.

The one sensor that fixed this idle problem was the throttle position sensor.

You can get one here.

Throttle Position Sensor

It's very easy to change, and fixes the problem instantly.

Good luck.

After searching around, I found several posts that suggested reseating all the relays and fuses under the hood. After checking, I noticed nearly all of them were not seated well. I pushed them all down and I haven't had the problem since.

I had a similar problem on my 2002 Impreza RS 2.5 (same engine and engine control system). In my case it was the O2 sensor on the intake manifold. This happened at 34,xxx mi. so it was covered by the warranty. Replacing the part is very easy. (two bolts and a wiring harness). Obviously I would start simple and cheap and work your way to expensive and difficult.
From my understanding its all caused from the engine missfiring. If its been a while or never, I'd change the spark plugs first. (stick with the Subaru Parts plugs, I went after market and the dealer claimed the plugs were not the correct "temperature" and had to pay for the new plugs and install although they did it without my permition. Thats a whole nother story).
Could also be the manifold pressure sensor.
Either 02 or manifold pressure sensor may cause intermitent check engine light.
Where I live Brookline,MA , Autozone will run a free diagnostic on your car by hooking up to your ECU and will give you the trouble codes and possible remidies. Of course there are no guarentee's but it will point you in the right direction.
Good Luck

Why does my Accord intermittently start and die?


Look at your tachometer, it should be at least 750 RPM...if you have a manual, look for the exact Idle RPM.

If the idle speed is too slow it can cause the engine to quit, sometimes even if you just step on the brake.

Hope this helps.

Oil light coming on when clutch engaged


idle is too low?
look at the tachometer. What RPM is it? 800 ok, 300 bad.
the silly switch comes on at 3 to 5psi, (bad bad horror that)
if the light comes on, the oil pressure is horribly low.
running 5w oil?
low rpm, or wrong oil., or bad news.

if rpm too low, fix that first.
all cars.

Engine overheating on low rpm


Could not agree with you more - was thinking that it was a circulation problem with coolant when you mentioned your suspicions.

How do I check and possibly replace the engine oil pressure sensor in a 2006 GMC Envoy Denali?


Oil Pressure Test Check for proper oil pressure at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge. A tachometer may also be needed, as some specifications may require running the engine at a specific RPM.
  1. While the engine is cold, locate and remove the oil pressure sending unit.
  2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, connect a mechanical oil pressure gauge and, if necessary, a tachometer to the engine.
  3. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  4. Note and record the oil pressure reading when the engine is cold. The engine may need to run at a specified RPM, if so check the vehicle's specification.
  5. Run the engine until normal operating temperature is reached.
  6. Check the oil pressure reading again with the engine hot and record the value. Turn off the engine.
Compare the hot oil pressure reading to the specification. If the reading is low, check the cold pressure reading against the specification. If the cold pressure is well above the specification, and the hot reading was lower than the specification, the engine may have the wrong viscosity oil. Change the oil, making sure to use the proper grade and quantity, and then repeat the test.
Low oil pressure readings could be attributed to internal component wear, pump related problems, a low oil level, or oil viscosity that is too low. High oil pressure readings could be caused by an overfilled crankcase, too high of an oil viscosity or a faulty pressure relief valve.

My 1999 pontiac grand am will idle low, but does not cut off.


Sounds like your oil pressure sensor may be faulty. Or your oil level is very low. Your engine should idle as low as 650 rpm without your light coming on.
