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?
high idle speed at times when clutch is depressed.
Revs high on start up and contines when idling. Has not been fixed
Engine steadly idles very high
High idle changed air idle control valve,checked for vacuum leaks still running rough and high idle.
higher-than-normal idle when clutch is depressed slowly returns to normal
It idles at 3000 rpms or on a good day 2000rpms
Not always but a lot of times idles high with clutch depressed or in neutral.
I was not able to repair. New throttle body.
