If you take off the air filter pan you should see the throttle body there is a series of connections it makes, kind of like a Rube Goldberg machine, ok not that complicated, but we would need to see where you are hanging to give a clear answer. Go check out a junk yard, mechanic shop or old car dealership maybe to see what an in tact connection looks like.

Check the throtle linkage to make sure it is free. If it is, take the idle control soloneid off and clean it and where it mounts on the throtle body

Could be automatic choke stuck by bent spring or throtle linkage

Either the throtle cable is hanging or the idle control solonoid is not working

Driver side of the throtle body.Driver side of the throtle body.

If it has a cable attached to the throtle linkage, release it by moving the locking tang and pulling the cable all the way to the rear. Then get inside and floor the accelerator and it will automatically adjust the cable.

Probably idle control sosonoid located on the throtle body. Take it off and clean it and where it mounts. Also cleqan the inside of the throtle body where the throtle plate is as a carrbon ring forms there.

Potentially but they are cheap and easy to fix. the engine will tend to twist under torque so linkage etc. could bind. Just get a new one and you only have to raise it by balancer a few inches to get it in. Be careful though and look it up. YOU DO have to disconnect or loosen up a few things even when moving the block that slightly to allow for movement. The other side for example but do not take all the way out, trans mounts (same) etc etc. hard throtle linkage, shift linkage.

Hey Howard==It probably is the idle speed solonoid. Take if off of the throtle body and clean it with carb cleaner. Also clean the inside of the throtle body where the throtle plate is as a carbon ring forms around there. GoodluckJoe

It is in the ducting before the throtle body.

It is controlled by the computer and is not adjustable. If it is so slow that the engine wom't idle the idle control solonoid needs cleaning. It is attached tothe throtle body and clean it and where it mounts with carb cleaner. Also clean the inside of the throtle body where the throtle plate is as a carbon ring forms there.

The idle solonoid is probably hanging. Remove it from the throtle body and clean it. 240SX? remove the AIV box and plug up the hoses

User Avatar

Have you checked the thermostat the car might just think its cold all the time. Check the linkage and make sure everything is loose and moving freely. I assume it has a 4 barrel carb. make sure the secondary are closing all the way.

User Avatar

Hey Roger===If you stated the kind of car and engine you had it would be easier. Just guessing, it is either the cable to the throtle body or carb hanging or the idle solonoid needing cleaning. GoodluckJoe A sizable vacuum leak could also do that.

No. As of February 2012, Angie Carlson is not pregnant.

as you look at the throttle body (from the front of the vehicle) it is on the right side opposite the throtle linkage just under where the air tube from the air filter clamps to the throttle body. it has a two wire connector. yellow wire with a black tracer and a grey wire with a red tracer.

User Avatar

The type of car would be helpful. Carb. or fuel injected? In either case it may be the cable or linkage is broken or disconnected. If fuel injected, the throtle position sensor may be bad or unplugged. If the car has been sitting, rodents could have chewed through a wire. Computer is bad.

There is a small vacuum line for accessories in the engine compartment on top of the throtle position sensor that comes off and will cause this problem. very small hose...look on the intake throtle body for the sensor...it will have other vacuum hoses attached there also but this one is easily overlooked cause its so small. Hope this helps

The same problem that plauges most older Fords. There s a shift advance lever of of the throtle that connect to the transmision. Eith it is stuck or it poped off. Put back on and push it forward on the transmission
