Idling Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a problem with the idle speed on my car. It happens once the car is warmed up. It will be sitting at normal idle (just under 1000rpm) and then it jumps to about 1800 to 2000rpm. It will say like this for a while and then it is an intermittent problem after that. Everything else is OK, I have no other running problems. This car has been main dealer serviced from new and I'm pretty sure it hasn't had any connectors cleaned etc. so I reckon that might be a start, but which ones?.

 

Cheers,

 

Steve Hart.

TPS is on the passenger side throttle body - black box. Usually just unplugging the grey connector on the flying lead coming from it and reconnecting sorts the problem....

how do i do that then bud

 

Cut the connectors off and solder the wires instead. Not really a good idea but if the problem keeps re-occuring then its an option...
