A dirty throttle body might be the problem. Or check the IAC (Idle air control). More than likely its a dirty throttle body which is not that big of a deal to get it clean. Hopefully its not the IAC. That will run you a couple of hundred dollars.

low idle when cold but it goes normal in few minutes

I will talk about fuel injected engines since they have been common on most cars since 1987. Idling problems could be several problems. A dirty idle air control motor , dirty mass airflow sensor or dirty air filter will cause idle problems. Spark plugs that are wore out will cause a cylinder to now fire correctly. A wore or sticking injector will cause idle problems. The most common problem I find as a mechanic for idle problems is a faulty coolant temp sensor. So the three major systems to check are the AIR, FUEL and SPARK .

There isn't one...the idle speed is controlled by the engine management computer and is not adjustable. Idle speed problems are typically caused by a malfunctioning IAC (Idle Air Control valve), dirty throttle plates, or vacuum leaks.

The most common cause of a 1996 Ford Escort to idle rough is bad spark plugs or bad spark plug wires. A plugged air filter will also cause it to idle rough.

To adjust idle on a 1996 Yamaha Virago 110o, locate the throttle body and remove the rubber casing for the idle switch. Disconnect the idle air adjustment valve and turn the idle screw.

Idle speed control or Idle air control.

There is a "belly pan' under the intake that commonly blows gaskets causing oil consumption, idle problems, heater shifting to default, etc, etc. Remove the intake and reseal..

Two of the most common causes are throttle position sensor and idle control valve problems.

Idle is computer controlled and is not adjustable.

A failing throttle position sensor will cause idling problems when the car is warm. The failing sensor can also cause the car to stall when idling.

I don't believe you can change the idle if it is fuel injected, the idle is controlled by the computer, one of the most common problems with low idle is a faulty (IAC) sensor, Idle Air Control. I don't know if you can check these or not but they are available at your local parts store, they usually have a diagram on their computers to show the location of these sensors. Hope this helps.

The correct idle speed is 1RPM x4.2-7.888

There is no adjustment, the idle is controlled electronically. If you have idle problems you may have a vacuum leak somewhere.

Idle speed is computer controlled and is not adjustable. Is the speed is incorrect, you have a malfunction with the idle airflow control motor, another sensor, or the computer could need reset. A weak battery can cause the computer to "forget" how to idle. Unhooking the battery for five minutes resets that.

A common cause for a stalling 1996 Honda Civic is a vacuum leak. Check the vacuum diagram for the vehicle and is if there are any leaking air lines.

Idle speed is not adjustable. The computer controls the speed with the idle air control motor on the back of the throttle body.

This engine will be fuel injected. This means that if the engine will not idle at the correct speed there is something wrong with the fuel injection system. The most common problem leading to a high idle is a vacuum leak. The second most common problem is a bad or fouled spark plug If neither of these is the problem a scan with a correct tool may tell what component has failed .

The idle is controlled by the ecm, no adjustment needed. If you are having idle problems look for a vacuum leak or possibly a faulty idle air control valve (IAC).

User Avatar

you have to replace the t.p.s (throttle positioning sensor ) that's how i fixed the idle on my Plymouth breeze

User Avatar

it has a low idle. Can also be a vacuum hose leak.

Please you check cooler system, fan, whewn idle overheat.
