I found out with my Yukon that it needed a new IAC (Idle Air Control) Valve. The first timeit happened to me the dealership only cleaned it without replacing it, but it did it again, and I replaced it myself. Idles a great deal better now and doesn't sputter or idle down. Try that.

AnswerI own a 2001 Yukon Denali w/a 6.0 Litre. Basically the same problem. Believe it or not, fuel injector cleaners are not enough to correct this problem. Pull the air intake hose off the front of the throttle body & use spray THROTTLE BODY cleaner NOT CARB CLEANER. Works like a charm!! Drive for a couple days & repeat. This is a very common problem on all Yukon's & Tahoes..

Good Luck!!!

Thank you for the help I went with the Throttle body cleaner trick Worked like a charm gave me just enough rpm to keep the idle smooth and saved me alot of money for the Idle control valve

The idle is computer controlled

It's likely that the idle needs to be adjusted higher, especially if it is an automatic.

The idle on a 2001 24 valve is computer controlled and is not adjustable.

Idle is automatically set by the computer with the use of an idle motor.

The idle is not adjustible. You may need to clean the throttle plate to improve the idle.

The idle setting for a 2001 ford escort zx2 is something that is not owner adjustable. It the idle is off, check for vacuum leaks or a clogged air filter.

It is on the air intake near the left side of the alternator.

The idle speed on a 2001 Honda Civic is adjusted through the idle air control valve. The valve is located behind the intake manifold. Open the cover using a screwdriver and tighten the valve to lower the idle.

If a 2001 Cadillac DeVille shakes when the car is idle, there could be an issue with the powertrain. There could also be a problem with the crankshaft position sensor.

The idle air control valve controls the neutral idle of the 2001 Honda Accord. A faulty idle control valve leads to an erratic idle. To replace it first locate the valve on the intake manifold. Unplug the unit and remove the three bolts holding it to the manifold.

You don't. If the idle is not within factory spec there is a problem that needs to be diagnosed, such as the idle speed control unit for example.

User Avatar

The idle position sensor sends a 4 to 20 mil-amp signal to the Microprocessor, that set the optimum idle speed.

On idle speed control actuator is located on the front of the air intake plenum

Idle speed is computer controlled. It is not adjustable. It can vary from 550-1200 rpm.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

I believe the idle adjustment is on the choke plunger, twist clockwise or counter clockwise.

You can't. The idle speed is controlled by the Engine Control Module or ECM.
