have replaced computer aic maf or map whichever tps switch checked hoses ,just about everything i can think of. Idles at about 2100 rpm and now its started sputtering when so called idling. mash the gas and it goes just fine. but will not idle properly. any suggestion would be worth a million and a half.
I can't get my engine to idle down. I have replaced the IAC valve but that did not solve my problem. What else could be causing my problem?
