Hi. Just got a used mazda 626. With 104k miles…everytime I stop it has a rough idle and the engine shakes like it wants to turn off. The moment I start to drive it goes smooth …there is no check engine light on. So I cant think of why is it happening. Please let me know, thank you.

Which engine do you have?
Try cleaning the throttle body and IAC first.

Hi. And thank you for your advice . The idle is the right timing 650rpm . It still shakes when Im stopped and I cleaned the IAC valve. Could it be the timing belt? The valves? Because when I drive it is perfect . Please let me know .

650 might be too low. Try increasng to 750 and did you use a jumper between the TEN terminal at DLC-1 and ground?

Check the engine mounts, they could be bad.

Hello. And thank you. The screw for the idle is tightent in max, doesn't go more. So I really cant change the idle at all. And what is this jumper you are saying with terminals. I have never heard of it at DLC-1 please let me know. And can you tell if the engine mount are bad just by looking at them?

Tightening would decrease the idling speed. You need to turn it outwards.

Refer to link below for information on the DLC-1
