Engine is under load in drive and kinda tames it right? I suspect IAC or idle air control valve, now these can usually be cleaned so don't let someone tell you to get a new one (pricey)
search online for a parts store and when you find your part see if they come up with a picture so you can tell what it looks is attached to your throttle body w/ electricalplug on it....Good Luck to you friend.....Tim

2004 freelander hse erratic idle in park, fine in drive

Do you know what engine scan data is ? Disconnecting sensors is not the way to find a problem ! What is the computer seeing as data input signals . Is the vehicle in closed loop fuel control , is the EGR opening when it shouldn't be , Is the PCM controlling the idle air control valve or is the vehicle drive by wire (electronic throttle control ?

93 accord goes back an forth from 1000 to 3000 while parked only when it gets turned on.. put in drive or reverse its fine


This is likely due to an air / vaccuum leak somewhere in the EFI / Emission circuits, or a bad sensor.

When there are air leaks, the sensors cannot read properly and cannot provide the EFI computer with the correct data, hence the EFI computer will give erratic idling.

1993 S-10 Blazer has erratic idle and stalls

Check the tps "trottle positioning sensor, on mine the idle would not stay steady, and shift so hard that it would sound like it was going to break something. it is located on the drivers side of the throttle body with a push in electrical connector.

Could be a transmission issue. Did you hit any objects while driving ? Have you performed a visual inspection under your vehicle ? Have you checked to see if you have any loose vacuum hoses ? Any codes in your engine control module or transmission control module ?
