Check the setting for the auto choke and adjust the linkage with it.. Adjusting screw on the throttle butterfly that runs on the fast idle cam of the auto choke.

SOURCE: High Idle

I have a 2001 Nissan Altima and mine did the same thing. We replaced the intake gasket. It costs around $5.50, but it requires several different kinds of tools. We spent over $100 in special sockets, etc. But once you replace that gasket, it will idle better.

Got the same make/model/year, but haven't had that problem. Does your temperature gauge run at half or above when this happens? If so, start with a cheap fix - new thermostat.

Another thing to consider is that some of the QR25DE engines equipped in the 02 Sentra SERs has an active recall on the crank position sensor. This fault would cause the check engine light to come on and the car would stall unexpectedly. It should start back up but the frequency of this will only increase without repair.

Also, no need to change plug wires, you have coil pack ignition - there is no distributor. If a coil pack is bad, you will have constant misfire and SES light.

1999dodge ram has cool heat at idle gets hotter when you drive or rev engine


Sounds like a bad thermostat, REPLACE IT! And make sure coolant is at proper level. A thermostat should be closed when cold, and wide open at hot engine. if it fails, it will not stay closed at cold engine, or its stuck. When stuck water flows through by pass at thermostat. and does not heatup because thermostat does not hold coolant back until it gets hot. God-Bless!

Idles erratically, just changed rocker cover? gasket .now it revs high, not sure why, can I fix this suzuki swift 1990


rocker cover, i edited it for you. (my guess high is over 800rpm)?
hot engine or cold engine or both?
if hot is water temp, 180F? or stuck at 149F"? too low...
are you in neutral or drive? or park.?
which engine?. is it there are many sizes used on Swifts,
one if the largest number of engines on car.
my guess is a "G" engine family.
High idle is usually a vacuum leak,
is this a CARB or EFI engine?, (TBI, throttle body injection:?)
if it is EFI and if TBI
any air leaks will cause too fast hot idle.
here is the list: EFI only ! electronic fuel injected.
  1. Vacuum leaks. (hose left off, or now cracked?)
  2. sticking ISC, idle controller.
  3. TPS set wrong, and no longer has a working idle switch.
  4. ECU in Limphome (if CEL lamp (dash) glows running , bingo)
  5. PVC hose fell off.. sucking in fresh air , and higher idle.
more if you have answers to what your engine and driveline
consist of.




here is the lineup
GEN2 Swifts (the G family used)
1.0 L G10 (LP2) I3
1.0 L G10T (LS3) turbo I3
1.3 L G13A/BA (L72) 8V I4
1.3 L G13B/G13K 16V DOHC I4
1.5 L G15A 16V I4
1.6 L G16 16V I4

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.

01 Bus on Savana 3500 frame. Start ok when cold hard start when hot. Engine revs very high and levels out again. This goes into cycle of idle and revs. Bad exhaust smell! Sometimes black smoke and fuel...


Try disconnecting the wire to the mass airflow sensor, and see if the symptoms change drastically. It's a three wire connector right behind the air filter box. This is what it looks like on a 97 4.2 liter v6. If the vehicle runs better, get some MAF cleaner fluid, and try cleaning it. It may need replacement, but only if the symptoms change with it disconnected.

Cold days 94 f-150 high rpm start


probably is a emissions sensor problem, lots of these parts are plastic. check out the throttle cables, lub em wd40. there is a type of valve somewhere on top of engine, it may be cracked, pcv valve stuck. lots of possibilities, almost too much for solution online. something emmissions with an electronic sensor is acting up.

Heater blows cold on low revs


Try looking at the theromstat housing and check it very close for a hair line crack either when the engine is cold or hot. They have had problems with the housing getting a small hair line crack and leaking and getting air in the system. Also keep a close eye on the coolant and make sure its clean and full if there is any air in the system it wont heat great at idle when you are going down the road or idle it higher you have more coolant flow thus making it hotter.

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
