If your engine is equpped with a carburetor, idle it down some. Take the air cleaner outer cover off and look just forward of the top of the carb. You'll see the idle stop screw. counterclockwise slows idle speed.

My gl salvia is idleing very hight onky just happened today it idles high but when I turn my ac on it goes normal but not for long even with it on the idle still still picks up to much


Check for vacuum leaks would be my first thought.

Check engine light on? Check the trouble codes.

Idle air control (IAC) stepper motor stuck, dead or carboned up.

Low coolant will increase idle speed if a sensor is uncovered. Makes the computer think the car is running hot.

What does it mean when the car jerks when you put it into gear?


The car pulls suddenly hard in forward or reverse direction at the moment you change gears.

Idle problem integra


check the MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure). The ECM (car computer) uses that to keep idle at minimum 750 RPM. It's normal for it to run high when cold. These small 4 banger motors typically run hot, and they won't run right IF they're NOT running hot, ergo the idle is usually high when it is cold so as to cause it to warm up quicker. If the RPM's drop below 750, suspect the MAP sensor, &/or ECM.

Have your timing checked. Retarded timing can cause the issues you have. A quick adjustment could fix it.
