No compression = a major leak in the cylinders. If the chain got loose then the timing went way off. Because of the very tight tolerances in the engine, when the timing went off the pistons have started hitting the valves, bending them out of shape and jamming them open.
At least all the valves will have to be replaced, probably the pistons also. The head will have to be almost surely planed.

Where is the aic on a 94 sierra

Its located right on the throttle body. If your talking about the air intake temp sensor, thats mounted by the air filter or in the plastic tube that goes off the throttle body to the air box, its a 2 wire hook up. The idle air control "iac" is located on the throttle body side. "iac" idle air control. "ait" is air intake temp. 2 totally diff sensors.

Im wondering if the IAC would make my idle flucuate after its warm and it only jumps down 200 rpms and then back to normal. ??? weird??????

Hi Dirtcrazy, Depending on which type of climate control is fitted to your vehicle, (if it is automatic or manually controlled) it will have either one or two 'up idle' solenoids. These are electrically operated vacuum controls which are sometimes adjustable and sometimes preset. They or it will be fitted in different places on different vehicle. It is difficult to know where on your vehicle as we do not know which vehicle it is? locate the 'up idle' solenoid and make sure that the vacuum tube connections are not cracked, broken or loose. The defects noted would result in the fluctuating idle speed you're referring to. Regards John.

I have a 1991 mercury cougar with a 5.0 .the idle is very high approx 2500.

check the air idle control valve , its located in the air tube that leads to the throttle body of your motor,, also, clean the throttle body with carb cleaner, just remove the air tube leading to the motor,, clean the part that it attaches to on the top of the motor, a few sprays will clean off all the black stuff that accumulates inside of it,, open the flap and clean around that too, wipe the excess out with a clean rag,

Lean idle air control valve

Idle Air Control valves are not "LEAN" or "RICH". They can either control the idle speed correctly or they cannot. What kind of problem are you experiencing?

Idle cotrol vale

Its on the side of the thottle body, two 10mm bolts hold it on, its cylinder shape and will have bright metal on the ends of it, with a wiring harness plugged in on one side, if you locate the air cleaner follow the black intake tube up to the engine, the black tube hooks onto the thottle body, then on the side should be the idle air control valve.

2003 Lancer OZ Rally - Erratic Idle while sitting. Acceleration and normal driving is fine but when I stop for more than 10 seconds it bounces between 400 and 1000 rpms. What could be wrong?

You may be having a problem with your IACV idle air control valve. It is located on your Throttle body(follow the tube from your air cleaner to the throttle body) It will be on the the right below the tube. It is held on by three screws. It runs $430 at the dealer. I got one off of a junkyard throttle body for $30 and recycled the rest of the throttle body.

Saturn 1999 sl Engine has a high idle speed. How do I find, replace, inspect IAC?

The Idle Air Control valve is located on the throttle body. If you follow the intake tube from your air filter all the way back to the intake manifold, where the intake tube connects to is the throttle body. Remove the intake tubing and you can see the throttle body.

There are two sensors on the throttle body and a vacuum line. You'll see two harnesses going to the throttle body, one is the IAC.

However, a quick diagnostic check can be done without touching the throttle body to confirm your problem. If the car has a normal idle when initially started but then rises to a higher idle and stays there BUT then if you were to shut the car off and restart it and it comes back to normal that is the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). This is also located on the throttle body (the other sensor to the IAC). If it is the IAC it will be high and maybe fluctuate a bit.

Can I change the electronic idler motor on my 1998 camry or does it require

The air intake tube is the plastic or rubber hose that connects the air filter box to the throttle body. It should be about 3-4 inches in thickness..... The motor is relitivly easy to change. Although, you will need to remove the throttle body to change because it is located on the botton of the throttle body. Let me know if you have any problems.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
