1995 chev monte carlo high IDLE

When i bought my monte 3 years ago. It was "fine" but only 2000 miles later...It started high idling for a few minutes then to low or "correct idle". Now, Its high idling all the time like 1500rpm or so. Boy,...Im going through allot of brakes lately. I replaced the well-known problematic INTAKE GASKETS. but it did not solve the problem. I replaced the Idle air motor and throttle position sensor. Unfortunately, all of that has not solved anything . Now im thinking the EVAP system??????? Its definitly starting to get frustrating now.

What it basically sounds like is you have a vaccum leak. chances are either the vaccum line to the manifold is got a hole in it or your mps(manifold pressure sensor might be on the fritz) if you replaced the manifold gasket it was because you thought you were sucking air and you thought you were leaqning the fuel air mixture some how. take a look for the vaccum leak and i'm sure you will solve this problem... please rate this..thanks

Don't replace anymore parts yet.Do you have access to a scanner that can see live data? You need to have this scanned, checking the block learn , interrogator and the O2 sensors. This will let you know what the PCM is seeing and doing. Also check the maf sensor, the idle air temp and the coolant temp sensors. You might also check your fuel pressure and volume.At that point, you will have a better handle on whats happening. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can access the link to find a garage in your area who will help you.If you decide to continue with this and still need help,hit me back and include the engine size and we can go on from there.Good Luck.

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.

Wont keep idle, car stalls out


I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.

Idling high and running hot


did you change the thermostat? and it sounds like you have a vacuum leak that will make it idle high

High idle


I have the same exact problem, but with idling roughly between 700 and sometimes upwards of 2000+ RPM.  I don't have the problem you do as far as the engine heat goes, but I definitely feel the tug, hear the engine sounding bogged down at stops, and when in neutral, finding it idling extremely high.  My check engine light had come on just this past month (with this problem occuring for a little over a year now), and it turns out I have a bad Throttle Positioning Sensor, which my mechanic says can cause the high idling.  I'm replacing the sensor this weekend with a dealer part, which I got for $102, so I'll post again once it's done to let you know if that fixed the problem or not.
Hope this helps,

Nissan 2000 ac hot when idle


the a/c condenser has a fan in front ( there is actually 2 fans if you sit on the car it will be fan on right side ) if this fan does not
come on immediately when you are parked and engine in idle
there is a problem with power to it, or motor failure. If you drive it
on the highway and a/c operates fine that's because air is circulating though condenser (thats what the fan is supposed to do at idle or slow traffic)
