    My 1993 Ford Tempo is idling like a raped ape. Can someone give me some ideas as to what might be wrong?

  • Anonymous Sep 01, 2008

    idles real high until you turn on a/c then idles normal. Wont upshift until revved way up. Both problems started at same time. Search for vacuum leak turned up nothing.

What is high idle?


When a car is idling it is at rest.The idle setting refers to the engine revolutions or 'revs'.If the setting is increased so that the 'revs' are greater,the engine will not stall at rest.This is 'high idle'!

High idle o n a 1996 chrysler concorde. have change the tps and the idle air control valve. i think its a vacum line but i dont know which one. which one s effect the idle


High idle is usually caused by a vacume leak. First place to check is the cold air intake manifold. All hoses, throttle body, and sensors. Throttle Position(TPS), Mass Airflow(MAS), Idle Air Control Motor (valve) IAC. Controls Idle speed

A malfunctioning throttle system can cause both a high idle as well as an engine stall.

A dirty air intake or cracked air intake tube is often the culprit.
