If your idle was fine and then just became high, don't adjust the idle control screw. Your problem would be indicative of another issue. Perhaps a vacuum leak. turn the idle control screw to the left ... no neither of those.....your are getting air that is accounted for by the mass air flow sensor....there for its either a) throttle plate not closing or b) idle air controller stuck open.

To fix high idle problem on a 1996 VS Commodore, first locate the idle air control valve. Unscrew and unplug electrical connector running to the valve. Turn the valve over and clean the sensor for debris.

Before you can fix the idle problem on your Vauxhall Frontera, you need to find out the cause of the problem. If the problem is with the fuel pump or fuel filter, they would need to be replaced.

The idle is automatic. If the speed is not corect then you have to fix the problem with the idle motor.

Because something is broken, or your idle speed has been set WAY to high. Try to fix this soon.

when the engine starts and is warming up the idle is supposed to be at around 1500 rpm but when the engine warms up the idle should drop to between 700 and 1000 rpm. if it doesnt drop then see a mechanic because it is a very complicated fix

Check to make sure the belt it tight and not slipping at idle. After that try a fluid change. If those things do not fix the problem then you need a new power steering pump.

Your alternator is not functioning per the manufacturers standards. When it is at low idle the pulley is spinning considerably slower resulting in less output. A new alternator will fix your problem.

You can start with the 02 sensor. if that does not fix the problem then you may have to consider the ECU.

If the Polaris 50 Scrambler only runs for about five seconds and shuts off, it could be a problem with the idle setting. This type of ATV has an adjustment screw on the carburetor for turning the idle up. This should fix the problem.

Assuming the engine is bolted securely, then I would think it is indicative of a problem with the idle being too high and affecting the centrical clutch or just the clutch.

I have the same problem with my 03. I havent figured out the check engine light but take it to a dealer and they will fix the idle problem. they know about it and if you take it to them they'll fix it for free. it has something to do with the computer needing to be cleaned out.

The idle control valve needs to be replaced. It's mounted behind the throttle body. Just replaced mine to fix same problem. Cost $65.00 at auto parts store.

User Avatar

yes. use brake cleaner to find the leak. However replace your ects and clean your throttle body. This is normally the reason for a high idle. ----------------------------------------------------------- THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR ANSWER!
