Where is the air control sensor in a 2001 oldsmobile silhouette?


It's called IAC - idle air control valve > Did the RPM'S stay at 2000 or drop back down ? The PCM engine computer controls IAC valve according to engine load . Put it in gear , turn on electrical loads , headlamps , A/C etc... an the RPM raise's up so engine will not stall . More then likely the throttle plate needs to be cleaned , they get gummed up an stick at higher idle . Quick Tip Throttle Cleaning EricTheCarGuy If the IAC valve were gummed up the idle would be low or erratic . On some engines a vacuum leak will cause high idle . Videos on youtube checking for vacuum leaks .

My welder will run and weld fine at high idle speed but shuts of when the low idle kicks in. Checked fuel system to see if it was a fuel issue, no problems there. Any ideas?


If you're trying to weld at low idle it may be that the load on the engine stalls it before it can automatically go back to high idle.
You may need to "trick it" back to high idle before you begin welding.

Bike will sit and idle for over hour but if u ride it after ten 15 min it will lock up back tire and die then hard to kick after cooling down will fire back up


1. idle speed is a "no-load" situation.
2. Riding is a "load" situation. - This is when the problem occurs!

This could be something simple or very complicated to diagnose ... its time for a top notch professional... not just some parts replacer!!!!!

I gave seen a quad that would idle fine, even when warmed up, but try and race it and it would overheat and lock up. The problem was a BENT connecting rod, from forcing the engine to turn over when the engine was FULL of gasoline! (Forcing past a hydraulic lock situation!)

My Woolf 900 generator starts fine initially. When put on load (600w) it is reluctant to get up to speed (45secs) but eventually gets there. When load is taken off it doesn't go back to idle and event


Does it have and automatic idle? If so cut it off and see if engine can run at 3600rpm no load. If still stalls, your jets(brass tube) have something blocking holes and carb needs either a real good clean in a dip, rebuilding, or replacing.

I HAVE A POWERMATE 5000 THAT SHUTS DOWN UNDER LARGE LOAD . I THINK I NEED AN IDLE CONTROL MODULE.THERE IS A 2 WIRE MODULE IN THE START CKT. #21009XA IS THIS IT AND WHERE DO I GET ONE .


Idle control comes into play when there is no power draw forcing the engine to idle with an electro magent. If you feel that the electro magnet is interfering with governor, temp remove the wire to the solenoid. Usually the idle control will not effect how the engine /gen output power. An overloaded condition will cause the engine the go the full throttle as the internal governor of the engine will try to maintain 3600 rpm. Overloaded condition will greatly shorten the life of the generator/engine. Try to use only about 80 % of rated power. Large motors can draw three times running amps. A compressor using 12 to 18 amps to run can draw over 40 amps to start.
If your generator could handle the load in the past, check the engine for loss of power, or the generator for faulty voltage regulator or capacitors out of range. Easy to check. Connect digital volt meter to plug /load and look at volt reading while running with no load and loaded. Voltage should stay between 110 to 120 under load and with no load (unless goes into idle mode). Good luck

When car is idling with AC on and power brakes applied, the idle goes back & forth between fast & slow. The AC Up Idle VSV and the Idle Up valve itself are both working. The brake booster check...


Check another vac source in/around engine. When you load engine with brake booster, then lower vac pressure w/Up idle, it's amplifying another vac source that might be weak.

My 02 Camry v6' battery was removed for 30 min and put back on - good battery. Engine starts no problem but stalls at idle. No error code. Is a computer-code reload or IAC cleaning ? Seems the car computer...


idle learn procedure:

turn off all electrical items (AC fan, audio, lights, defogger, etc.)
Start the engine and hold it at 3,000 rpm with no load (in park or Neutral) until the radiator fan comes on or the engine coolant gauge shows normal running temp.

Now let the engine idle for a minimum of 5 mins with no electrical loads. If the radiator fan cycles on during this time, you must add the fan running time to the 5 mins.

When Brake is applied the Idle tends to drop on my 1995 toyota pickup EFI 22R engine


this is absolutely normal with a well maintained broken in engine. the engine is at rest when stopped,so the ecm lowers idle till you drive,which puts the engine under load.if it causes the engine to stumble or die,then replace air filter and set up the idle.

Adjust the motor idle on a 1974 evinrude 50


Seat the idle mixture screw. Turn counter clockwise 1 1/2 turns. With engine running in gear under a load at idle slowly turn the screw clockwise until the engine bogs down and then turn back out 1/2 a turn. That is your correct mixture.
