if this is the 8valve engine.

the Dashpot vacuum device must not be actived on a running car (after 10seconds)

or the VSV to it is malfunctioning. (this device DP is behind the throttle body)

or lost vacuum to it .

on 16v, the IAC thermal air valve most not be stuck open hot, it must be closed hot.

100% make sure coolant hits 180F (150f is threshold) or the IAC will fail.

and scream it will.

All 8v engines scream for ANY vacuum leaks. Speed density tech.

all 16v scream cold but go lean and stall for vacuum leaks. (unmetered air rules)

look for a vacuum leak on top of the intake towards the front. on mine it was the line connected to the two valves attahed to valve cover.mine is a 1989 so i don't know if yours is in the same place but it's either a vacuum leak or the idle speed control.a

where can you find the idle of suzuki verona?

not easy. idle is the last thing that works correctly on any EFI motor. i recommend joining our experts on our forum and ask there. interactive , is the only way to discuss this complex subject. first , you must tell us the motor type. 8v or 16 valves. they are night and day in the idle department.

== == what engine. there are 2 and both are different. but the answer is , adjust the idle bleed screw on the throttle body in both cases. but high idle , means something else is wrong. re post , what motor you have. 8v or 16v == == == == Try this web site, It's for the 1993 suzuki swift but there is also specs on the sidekick as well. Otherwise your local library should have service manuals that you can make copies from. Other than that your local auto partsstore should have Chiltons brand manuals for sale. Hope this helps!!

What causes a car to idle good and run rough when you give it gas?

Most often it's an oxygen sensor, but it can also be plugs, wires, burned valves, vacuum leak, air filter or any of a number of problems. Connect a code scanner and see what the computer says, that can often be the best information.

With the timing set at 10 degrees BTDC it is 800 RPM.

hi I have. A 1988 samurai and when I start it up it will not idle up at all I have to give it gas to idle up wondering if there's something I can do.

Your idle should be set to between 1000 and 1050 RPM to prevent low oil pressure at idle.

1,300 +/- 100 RPM. I got this info from my Clymer book.

i hade the same problem with mine turns out mine was caused by the distributer being faulty. not sure if it is the same with yours but it is worth a try. if that does not work try testing your O2 sensor or idle sensor. . jmm

Fast idle motor is not working. This is allowing the idle to fall below the threshold of what it should be when the A/C is on.

You may want to check for sticking throttle linkage/cable and also your ignition timing may be advanced

It shouldn't idle that high the factory idle setting is around 900 RPM's check to make sure nothing is sticking and check vacuum lines. Good luck fixing your problem.

When the ac is running the idle should be raised to compensate for the extra load. If the idle isn't rising then the car will cut off.

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

Because the engine is running. Shut it off or give it gas and it will not idle.
