1993 Saturn SL2 Repair Question
New brake lines. problem with brand new caliper grabbing
clutch is fine. cuz i can hold the accelerator a little moment and it idles right above 1k as it should. it just idles really low when im coming out of gear and when the engine rpms are coming down to a stop.
Have you checked to see if the idle air control valve is dirty?
i have not. tonight, 8-29-12 driving across town it didnt do it once. hmm. im at a loss. ill check that out. where exactly is it located?
Bolted to your throttle body with two torx screws.It looks like a little motor has a flat plig going.Clean the port and the plunger of the valve use some carbon cleaner.If that doesnt work I have another thing that comes to mind.
well now the car is completely quitting almost 75% of the time when im stopping. hadnt had a chance to take the part off because for a while there it wasnt doing it at all. then about a week ago it started acting up again. would i just be able to replace the part? winter is drawing near and i work 36 hours a week on top of full time school so i have very little time to be taking things apart. thanks louie
You could just try replacing it there not super expensive. any codes?
no engine codes, just replaced the part now. went for a test drive. when pushing the clutch in to stop the engine revs at around 2kRPM and when completely stopped for 3 to 5 seconds engine speed starts to come back down as it did before. this is normal correct?
Try this take the negative battery cable off for about one min then put it back on and go for a drive.Also did you clean the iac port before putting the new iac on?
yes. my father reminded me to spray carb cleaner in and around it. car idles at 3k for about 45 seconds after finishing.
Yeah it will until the computer adjusts the iac back into the port.Did you try unhooking the battery for a min an hooking it back up?Also how is the coolant temp sensor?
