High idle speed is usually caused by a sticking idle air control valve or a vac leak. The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake manifold.

Hi Fareseedjr, high idle on fuel injected models can be casued by a faulty IAC valve located on the top front of the induction module. It has either failed electronically and needs to be replaced or mechanically getting gummed by contaminated engine blow by. You can try cleaning the unit by removing the air cleaner and backing plate, unplug, unscrew and remove the IAC. Using carb cleaner and " LOW " volume compressed air to clean the metal pintle and shaft that is spring loaded and has an operating length of just under 1 inch. Aventurous souls who did not heed the low air warning have launched pintle and spring into parts unknown. There is no guarantee this will work but worth a try since a new one is $50 Good luck

Idle speed control valve located on your throttle body. It has the engine searching for idle, internal plunger is not backing down. This will cause the check engine light to light . if you wont, i think they still offer free check engine light checks at auto zone, i now they still do around here

'02 Yamaha XJR1300 Rattle/vibrating noise from bottom of engine


how do you adjust the headlight beam on a xjr1300 naked 2002 bike, is it as simple as undoing the 2 bracket bolts at the sides of the lights and re-setting the lights to a new level ??
currently it seems to be set for riding with a pillion passanger or heavy load at the rear as the lights are set low, no one flashes me even if i ride at night with full beam on !

thanks xjr cambs

2003 toyota avalon gets check engine light and goes when idleing


Take the car to a local Auto Parts Retailer, and have them check the fault codes on your on-board computer. Given the year of your car, it is probably an OBD-2 type computer. They can print out whatever the computer diagnostic says the problem is. I am going to guess the throttle position sensor is to blame since it sounds just like what my sister's Mazda Mommyvan was doing.
