Sounds like either a bad O2 sensor, or a bad MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor, both of which are fairly cheap and easy to replace.

Some times my 1984 ford f150 idels fine when its in park(some times)but when i put it in drive or reverse idel drops about 500 or so rpm sputters for a little bit and then dies. Some times it runs fine...


In general, yes. This is a carb tuning issue. Another possibility is a vacuum leak somewhere, but most likely, it's a carb issue. You'll typically see your rpm drop a bit when you put it in gear, but that it sometimes stalls out points to a carb issue.

Starts but will not idle


Most Lesabre have the 3.8 engine. The engine has a device called an automatic idel speeed motor or AIS for short. It's held on with two torx 20 screws and a 4 wire electrical connector on the side of the Throttle body. BUT BEFORE YOU GO REPLACING THIS DEVICE THAT CAN COST OVER $50. Try this first. Don't drive the car around this way just test it! Remove the big vacume hose from the power brake booster and put your finger over the end of the hose going to the motor. Have an asstant start the car and hold the gas so it'll keep running, trying to go as slowly as they can. Slowly remove your finger from the end of the hose and the motor should pick up speed. you should be able to get a good idle with your helper completly of the gas. if you do the idel motor is'nt working ( right) so your not done checking. Let's say you can't even get a fast idel that stays. The timing chain needs checked and other vacume or engine control codes need checked. Has the check engine light been on? ( with the engine running) . If it has the idel motor will set a code as will a cam senser and all the other sensers on the car. Follow code charts if a code is found. Most auto parts stores will check your car for free for codes but their recomendations very with the experience for the operator of the tool, and if they were good enough to make the mechanics money why are they in a parts store? If you can acheive a good idel playing around with the vacume hose then put it back on and go to the next step. Remove the Idel motor and clean it and the hole it came out of with oven cleaner. Just like cleaning an oven don't get it on you or the wiring part of the motor. With an OHM meter the pins will show two different pins hooked together ( two Pair) If you get only one it's bad. Every pin is connected to just one other pin. If not it's bad. You can get new cheap ones that are bad. I use cheap ones and cross my fingers. If they work the first time their good for a long time. Then you have to learn the idel. Try to learn the idel with the old one cleaned first. Start theengine and hold the idel with the gas pedel. after holding the speed at 2000 Rpm for two minutes ( a good engine will do this easy) let off slowly it should idel down slowly then (catch) and speed back up on it's own. If it does your fixed and go on your merry way.

GIVE IT A FILTER CHANGE-AIR, FUEL. MAYBE PLUGS AND WIRES DEPENDING WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME. FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER, DON'T MESS WITH THE IDLE SCREW-THAT'S WHAT THE COMPUTER IS FOR.

Car ideling roughly ...not stalling


sounds like you may have a problem with your Idle air control valve, located on the throttle body. this is what controls the idle when coming to a stop or stopped and turning corners or basically when your foot is not on the gas pedal
