Well I think that it is most like the timing is of have it check asap it takes FIVE minutes


Throttle position sensor That would depend on what year and make of the car you have. If it's an older vehicle that's carbuerated, you simply adjust your idle screw on the side of the carbuerator (look for your throttle cable where it attaches to the carb) until it idles at the proper speed. It could be a dirty air cleaner or bad fuel filter. It could be a vacuum leak. It could be missing on several cylinders - does it shake as it tries to idle?
