Try to reset your valves to specs... I find in many Honda's I work on that people think they can adjust there valves because they make a tapping noise.... If your car ran fine then this happened you can check under the throttle body directly under neath there will be two 10 mm bolt on the bottom inside there will be a plastic screw make sure it is all the way in sometimes they loosen up..... when that happens runs fine cold then the erratic idle begins when warmed up..... hope I was able to help.... :)

05 Taurus very high idle and surges when low.

Check all VAC lines before throwing parts at it. Ford has been PLAGUED with vac related issues for years and has failed to make it right. They have sold tons and tons of replacement IAC's and sensors to people trying to fix this problem. Yes, it's true IAC's by nature do fail due to their constant fluctuations during operation, but a *BUNCH* of them are changed erroneously. It's a simple (for mechanic minded folks) philosophy - unmetered air entering the system causes idle flex/spikes/surges. A vac leak is the #1 reason idle issues occur, so don't forget the basics when tyring to diagnose this issue.

My 94 nissan patrol won't idle

if you mean it stalls at idle speed then it needs a service, the idle jets seem to be blocked and need a clean.
if you mean the engine stays and high rev and will not go down to idle this might mean the automatic choke is stuck on or the throttle cable is jammed and should be looked at.

I hope this was useful.

When air conditioner pump clutches ingage and disengage the RPMs drop up and down... bad gas mileage... stalled once when i was at a four way stop and went to go... when temperature was all the way down...

Well, lets see...
The engine RPM going up and down when the A/C clutches engage and disengage sounds like it could possibly be caused by an Idle Air Control (IAC) that cannot properly control engine speed.
The headlamps dimming on the other hand, leads me to think that you may have charging system problems - loose cable connections, bad alternator diodes, shorted cell in the battery, etc.
Then again, if the engine is not idling correctly due to a bad IAC, it can cause the headlamps to fluctuate if the A/C is kicking on and off at idle.

So here are my recommendations:
First, get your charging system load-tested. Correct any problems found and see if this fixes your problem with the stalling and the dimming headlamps.
If a load test does not identify any problems with the charging system, try replacing the IAC.

Also please review this article: What Else Could Be Wrong?

Idle malfunction

You need to replace your idle air controller (IAC). IAC basically opens and closes the throttle at idle so it stays at constants RPM.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.
