SOURCE: Rough idle, no power, steamy exhaust

The answer was the plug top coils. The plugs and coils were replaced and the car is fine. The steam was not steam - it was white smoke from the catalytic converters.No mayo in the oil and no coolant level drop should have eliminated the head gasket. The steam turned out to be a red herring.

I'm sure you have installed a fuel pressure gauge and monitored the fuel pressure while the problem is occurring?Another diagnostic tool which is easy to do,is while the problem is occurring,unplug one sensor at a time beginning with the Mass Air Flow first,.if it uses one.Many times,not always,depending on the sensor,if the sensor is taken out of the picture as far as what the PCM is seeing,like unplugging the MAF,the PCM will substitute the missing sensor output with a generic value that will allow the engine to at least run,and if unplugging for example the MAF,the engine idle speed returns to normal,you know you're onto the problem.You didn't mention if the engine ran ok other than the idle problem.As far as checking for vacuum leaks,i use something like brake cleaner or WD 40,more of a liquid,and it does sound like a vacuum leak.Plastic intake manifolds do develop nearly invisible cracks that open up more with heat.Revsisit the possibility.And as for the PCM,it is possible,but more likely a mechanical problem.Lastly,remove an O2 sensor or two before the catalytic convertor,run the engine and see if anything changes.Cheap way to verify the catalytic convertor is flowing and not restricting engine airflow,as i have seen bad cats cause misfire codes and strange problems.Good luck.

SOURCE: Check engine light is on and high idle (1500rpm)

Check for a vacuum leak.

This may be because your cooling pump is either cam or belt driven from the engine rotation, the faster the engine revs at, the faster and better the pump pressure is.

The higher the pump speed the better coolant flow is and the heat exchanger can work better at cooling it as it is cooled faster.

Therefor, the faster you drive, the better the output, but at low idle revs, the performance is affected - not ideal if you are sat in traffic on a hot day!

Some people consider having the pump changed to an electric motor drive, but this can be costly and not really worth it.

Hope this helps.

1992 volvo 940 has alectronic controlled idle. Idles at 850rpm when cold, but when engine is warm idles at 600rpm and oil light flickers on. any ideas please.


It could be a fluctuation in oil pressure due to the cold temperature, or it's due an oil change with a new filter. The oil pressure switch might also be faulty.

if that 2000rpm is start up from cold,,,its still a bit high! but only a bit,,,should be nearer 1500rpm cold out of gear,,,,
when warm it should run at about 850---900rpm-----out of gear-
950rpm for an auto out of gear,,
in gear an auto will drop to about 850rpm so that the motor wont stall when holding the brakes down i would take the car back,, but they may wont it over night so they can set the revs up from cold,,i have a felling that auto choke is still playing up a bit

2002 pontiac grand am, idle fluctuates at cold start in parkp0102


Sounds like a vacuum leak. Do you hear a sucking sound? Check your vacuum hoses, around the throttle body and intake for the sound. p0102 can come on when there is unmetered air getting to the engine and it could be fluctuating because the idle air control valve is trying to compensate.

1. Check your water sensor and plenum temperature sensor.

2. The throttle body has a wax element air valve used for cold idle. As the water temperature increases, the wax element closes the idle fast port. Being the highest part of the coolant system you may have an air lock, which can be solved by bleeding the hoses on the throttle body.
