Are the plugs correct? and gapped correct? The list is extensive, take it to a shop worth their salt in troubleshooting to check it out. Knowing what the data stream says will give a clue as to what is happening. Is the check engine light on? A bad MAF sensor can do this, egr system failure, weak fuel pump, plugged fuel filter, leaking intake gasket-the list goes on. The $75.00 or so to troubleshoot will save a lot of time, greif and $.

You can pour it in at any time, but the level is checked with it idling in neutral.You can pour it in at any time, but the level is checked with it idling in neutral.

Have motor mounts checked.AnswerYeah, it's most likely the motor mounts, I had mine replaced, it was also vibrating when the heat or a/c was on. it could also be the flex tube

The engine should be hot and idling in park.

Um that's not right, that's a red flag. Get it checked out.

Try adjusting the idling speed - sounds like idling speed is too low so when you take your foot off the gas it can't idle (Tick over)

The automatic transmission fluid is checked idling in neutral.

the only thing i can think of is a crack in the intake manifold. my cavalier's manifold cracked and it was idling at like 2500RPM as opposed to the normal 1000-1500, also i had trouble with my brakes and misc other problems because of the crack. if it is just idling too high and there are no other problems i would guess that it is just compensating for the cold. if there are other little issues, i would look into having your intake manifold checked out. gotta take care of your baby because cavaliers are such great cars...... :p

I'd check the coolant level first, then the thermostat.

Possibly a defective torque converter lock-up solenoid. Disconnect the solenoid and see if that cures the problem. If so replace the solenoid.

Your Dodge Durango may stall when idling at a stop light for a couple of reason. One reason may be that a part needs to be replaced on the car.

The transmission fluid on a Chevy Blazer can be checked by idling the engine and allowing it to reach operating temperature. The dip stick can then be removed and checked based on the markings provided.

The most likely cause of a 1992 Ford Aerostar stalling while idling is bad spark plugs. The plugs should be changed and the timing checked to resolve the problem.

Have it checked for codes. There will be a misfire code that will let you know what cylinder has the problem.

I have the same problem. I believe the idle air control valve either needs to be cleaned or replaced.

my idling on my 2001 ford focus is not idling correct, tried to adjust idling but there is no screw or way to adjust why?

This is happening to my car right now and Im just getting the car idling fixed. It can't be for sure, but your car may need the idling checked.

Sounds like the throtle position sensor is bad. Have it checked on a computer at a garage. The parts store computers cannot give good codes to narrow it down.

User Avatar

check the wires, if they are crossed up you get bad ilding. my aurora was idling around 1500 rpm's, but after having all the spark plugs and boots replaced it went back to around 600...see if that helps

If your vehicle is idling high to low when its not moving, chances are you have an issue with the transmission. It may need to be replaced fully or simply fixed.
