Idle speed for Kia Rio 2007 is 1600 RPM. How do I reduce this to normal 750-800 RPM?


If your Rio has fuel injection then you cannot adjust the idle speed.

The idle speed is controlled by the ECU and the Idle Speed Control (ISC or IAC) valve which is mounted on the throttle body.

You should not adjust the throttle stop screw on the throttle body - this is factory set and should stay as it is.

If you're having trouble with idle speed , then it's more likely that the ISC valve has fouled up and needs cleaning with carb cleaner.

While the malibu is still it shakes a lot seems like it wants to turn off. I put in Neutrol and the shaking is less, what can this be?


Is the check engine light on ?
Usually when the engine is shaking you have a miss where one or more cylinders are not firing or not producing power.

It takes several try to run my suzuki van f6a automatic transmission and after running in the idle speed the engine is vibrating for several minutes before running normal. Many thanks


you might have a broken motor mount or ****** mount,as for the overheating you might need a new thermostat or water pump,but check your antifreeze first to make sure its strong enough for this time of year

I have a 2000 chevy metro that has a rough idle and check engine flashes


The flashing light is indicating a misfire which is what you are describing. When is the last time you had a tune up? Most likely just replacing the spark plugs/wires will fix it.

P0300: SOMETIMES rough idle, shake a lot OR less power above 50mph then got this code


Spark plugs in your car are good for 100,000 miles. try changing fuel filter and add a can of B&G 44K fuel additive. This stuff is the best on the market and only available at dealerships. It conditions fuel pump and injectors, also absorbs water in fuel (methanol). Try this first, your car is too new for any other problems. this should help drivability and fuel mileage. If Nissan does not have B&G, I know Toyota does. Also stay with 91 octane fuel. Check oil and coolant often. do not risk overheating in traffic, watch your gauges......

2003 HD Road King - starts fine, idle normal. Once it is warm, idles at 2000 rpm. Does not come back down, even after riding for an hour or two. Only idles normal when cold. Help??


If you bike is equipped with a carburetor, the idle stop screw is located at the top of the carb on the right side. Counterclockwise turn slows the idle speed.

If you bike is fuel injected, a dealer or shop will have to set the idle speed electronically.

Good Luck

Interesting story but other than the low idle, you never said how the bike was running. I must assume that it's running alright other than your concern that it may be running lean due to your fuel mileage. You're mileage is about nornal for an engine as large as yours. My 1340 Evo gets about 45 miles per gallon. If you had a vacuum leak on the manifold seals, you would notice it mostly at idle speeds. The idle speed would probably vary considerably while sitting still. It may even cause one cylinder to miss. As long as your bike seems to be running good, ride it and enjoy it.

2005 honda crf450 cant get the idle right & is


Bigger jetting (a higher fuel/air ratio) will not cause overheating. But an air leak between the engine and carburetor can cause overheating - and an erratic idle. Make sure the carb is correctly connected and there are no air leaks. An air leak could also be the cause of the popping that you were attempting to address by re-jetting.
Once any air leaks are corrected, adjust the idle mixture screw to attain the highest idle speed when the engine is at normal operating temperature. Then, use the idle speed screw to set the correct idle speed.
Finally, ride the bike at full throttle for a short time, pull the clutch and coast to a stop. Remove the spark plug and check the color; a tan or light brown color indicates correct jetting. Too light = too lean. Too dark = too rich.
