Its not being told to speed the idle up under load ,now on the back of the steering rack just behind where the steering goes into it is a sensor that increases the RPM on idle when steering is turned but i have found that if this sensor isnt working not only does steering slow engine down but also AC ?? why when they are not related i dont know i just know it does ??

2008 pt cruiser problems. At idle with Air Cond on get frequent RPM drop. 50-100 RPMs. Withour Air Condition on car idles fine (no drop) Also can hear a single click sound when drop occures.


The click sound would be the air conditioner compressor engaging, the engine will slow down do to the additional load. If it idles rough you probably need to think about cleaning the throttle body.

Wont idle


you start up and as you let off the gas pedal then it goes way low in RPM? Then stall out,if it does this is vindictive of the Idle air control, you can take a chance and do 2 option you can relace the idle air control or use a throttle body cleaner,why would a cleaner work well to begine with the idle air control is pulse width control and blow by gases gums it up making it rate of keeping the iar control slow in response thus giving low ilde,then stall out, This is if it start and just wont idle, then there is its famous start up and 10 seconds later turns off,this one is different that is you ralarm not recognizing the key to fix this you ll have to reboot the memory disconnect the battery (roll down a window) put the terminal together and and allow 30 seconds then reattach the battery tighten down put key in ignition in the ACC wait 10 seconds then start up. now if the alarm is not the problem you may have a fuel pump problem this happens when the pressure it must supply to the injector are too low for proper injection,

Idle irratic


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
