Question about 2008 GMC Yukon
I can not find these codes, could they be pulling due to the code P0121 also coming up? Also what is the best option to start with on the P0121 code to fix it? I have been told by some to clean the throttle body and others to replace the sensor.
Some times the E.G.R. will stick half open. This will make the engine surge or have high idle. Try replaceing the E.G.R. located under the upper intake. Do not go with after market E.G.R. The spring in them are to powrefil and the E.G.R. wil not open. Also try replaceing the O2 sensors. This could give the engine more fuel thus a higher idle. Some vehicles the T.P.S. can be ajusted, do some checking to see if yours is adjustable.
Please contact me if your problem presists.

See or call your local auto parts store such as AutoZone or O'Reillys for the trouble code definition. Also, make sure your gas cap is really secure, and I mean tight.

SOURCE: Code P0121 on 2006 GMC
Classic signs of idle air control not able to cope with sudden engine loads. Cleaning should resolve this. Remove ducting from air cleaner to throttle entrance. Spray with carb. choke cleaner or WD40 spray and wipe back to the alloy finish. clean the the throttle plate and push the throttle open with your fingers and clean in behind as best you can. Clean the passageways to the idle air control valve. Remove the valve and give it a thorough clean up. Reassemble and it should all be good.

You never replace anything, on a Wishing,Hoping,Pushing,Poking,diagnostic approach
You learn the vehicles Systems,Test,then Replace,if you have a failed component.
Work on the Misfire Issues.
Then you lean O2 Codes will go away.
Not a the plugs.
Think lean---Vacuum leaks,EGR Valve leak,EVAP System leaks,anything with a hose that lets air into the intake system.
Exhaust System leaks,near sensors
