Inconsistent idle After the car starts the engine's idle will drop low enough to cause the engine to die, and it drops in one second after the vehicle is started. The vehicle will run as long as I keep the accelerator down placing the RPM's above 2000 in-between gears. Vehicle drives somewhat boggy like if there is water in the tank. Also recently the power steering went out because somebody kept putting to much fluid into the reservoir.

My 1999 Grand AM SE 2,4 has a fine idle when slowing down ahead of a stop-sign/trafick light and idles on about 550-600 rpms, but as soon as the speed drops below about 5 mph, the rpm drops to 350-400 rpms and the engine shakes (there is a bent part inside the engine that is causing this, I think after talking to a mechanic and I also might have a bad engine mount or two, but the engine runs perfectly smooth above 500 rpms. I Have tried to change all mechanical parts, like airmass etc, but its


This is caused by the bypass valve - when dropping below 800rpm it should open, letting more air in, to keep the rpm up. In your case it doesn't. Take the car back to the shop and have the codes read, find out if the cause why the valve isn't opening ... 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

Problem Number 1: Sometimes at idle, which is already a little fast (1100 rpms) the engine will drop down to about 800 rpms just for a second and then idle back up again. I there an idle control valve located somewhere or what could cause this to happen?

Hi rn I have a golf mk4 estate and the fans keep on turning even if the car just started up for the first time in the morning and it keeps on turning for the duration of the drive. This in turn causes the car to **** and lose power as I think that it draws to much current from the vehicle.The temp gauge also in turn drops down to 0 immediatly. Somebody help me please!


Check the coolant sensor, the wiring associated with it for breaks and shorts and then the fan relay. The lack of engine power is because the coolant signal to the ECU is incorrect and the ECU is changing the injection times to suit. If the fans co ... 2002 Volkswagen Golf

Car was running fine, then at work, left the lights on. Dead battery, tried to jump and took awhile. Started, but ran like ****, it would idle but when you touch the excelerator it would try to die. Finally got it going but had to keep pumping the gas to keep it started. Once on the road it would run smooth. But then when you let up would try to die. Thought maybe blew a fuse but all were ok, checked for vacuum leaks or anything else that might cause. I'm totally stumped. Any help would be great

My 1986 MR2 dies after running for a while. When its cold, no problem, but when its hot it sometimes idles down until it dies. I flushed the cooling system and was thinking that it might be the EGR valve, but then discovered that with the headlights ON, it doesn't die. I can even keep it from dying by turning the headlights ON. Is this a symptom of a problem other than the EGR valve? Battery and Alternator are both ~ 1 year old.

I have a 1994 GMC Safari 4.3 Vortec, W code. It is missing at low speeds but will accelerate fast to 70 and run smooth. When I pulled the plug wires to locate the miss I found 2,4, and 6 would each cause the engine to vibrate badly. When I pulled 1,3, and 5 I could not see any change in the motor, although I do have fire on each plug. I have new plugs and plug wires. My fuel pressure runs 58-60 pounds with a little drop when I first accelerate.

I have a 90 Lexus 400 LS, when engine is cold it idles on regula 1500rpm. When it warms up it drops to normal rpm. But if i turn it off for more than thirty minutes, it idles back to 1500 rpms and it takes 5 minutes to drop to normal. If i dont wait the 5 minutes and i drive off, it runs on 1000 rpms for about 1 mile, and it makes it hard to brake on red lights because it forces the car to go. After that 1 mile it drops to normal.
