help me with my idle issue PLEASE!
Posted 21 March 2009 - 11:07 PM
Just seems odd and i see my idle likes to rise sometimes to almost 1k. Then goes back to the middle at 500rpm. Then creeps up again. It is REALLY annoying for me. Also when I start it warm, seems like something is wrong. The rpm's bounce up and down and the engine shakes noticeably. I replaced the coolant temp sensor, but it is still the EXACT same. What really bothers me, is I bought a non OEM sensor like a idiot. Said made in italy, but I REALLY wanted to try it. I tested it with a meter the readings were like a OEM sensor should be.
Other things to mention. Recently things I tried. IAC cleaner down the IAC tube, plugs, and wires. Already seafoamed the motor as well. Also it won't do this, unless I have been driving around for a while. Not sure if low voltage could be the issue as well? At night my lights get noticeable dim so they are probably at the 11v range need to confirm tomorrow when it is at idle. Could the ecu be telling the iac to let the motor rev a bit higher to compensate? I am going to try a new battery and clean the contacts I am thinking. Any other ideas? Thanks!!!!
