Can an Idle Air Control Valve for a 1989 Mustang 2.3 litre be cleaned? Because I can't get the idle any lower than 900 rpm and the idle adjustment screw is as far as it can go. I've cleaned the throttle body, but did nothing, I'm assuming that it's the Idle Air Control?

97 Chrysler Concorde high idle speed A 1997 Chrysler Concorde starts fine, but idles at 2000 rpm. The idle increases to 2500 as it warms up. Vacuum is at spec, and no signs of intake leak. We have replaced the coolant temp sensor (previous code), idle air control motor (previous code), one front O2 sensor, EGR valve and control, and MAP sensor (previous code). The previous owner had the PCM replaced with a used unit, with no luck. We have not yet replaced the intake air temp sensor,

I have a 1992 Pontiac Sunbird SE with 3.1 V6, automatic transmission and air conditioning. When the engine is started, the idle speed immediately revs to 2900 rpm. When I put it into gear, the rpm drops to normal. This extra high idle speed only occurs when it is in park or neutral. The check engine light has not come on but I've checked for codes and there are none. I've checked the EGR valve passages and the Idle Air Control Valve passages and there were no blockages. There was just a sm

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer with a 4.0L V-6 engine. It had a low idle problem and was diagnosed and repaired by replacing the Idle Air Control Valve. After replacing the valve, I am now experiencing a high idle situation. When the engine is cold, and at first start, the engine idles at around 2000RPM and slowly backs down to about 1200-1500 RPM. When the engine warms up it idles around 500-900 RPM. The engine increases RPM after putting the vehicle into park, between shifting and when the a

Bad idle on my 1995 GMC Jimmy. 4.3 Vortec CPI 4x4. 163k miles. When I turn the truck over, fires right up, and then goes into a sick idle cycle.

I have replaced the head on a 1987 Mazda Capella 1800c (carburettor model)and it will now not idle. It has butterfly valves in the inlet manifold and I have checked all the obvious things such as air leaks, cut off solenoid and float level. I have also blown out all the jets on the carburettor. It appears the idle switch controls a number of different functions including the vacuum operating manifold butterfly valves. Do you have set procedure for setting the idle?
