After throttle valve cleaning engine RPM level increased at idle to 1,000 RPM's and at neutral increased to 1,300 RPM's. How to fix the problem? The same cleaning on the Pontiac Montana was no problem and increased performance.

Hi,

How did you clean it?

More than likely the throttle position sensor is not reading properly. You will want to back probe the position sensor and see what the voltage is when the idle is high. You will want to see what both TPS A and B are when then is acting up. Also, see what the green wire is doing as well.

The PCM uses the throttle actuator to maintain correct idle speed and that is part of the TPS. If you cleaned the valve, it is possible that the TPS is no longer accurate which is causing the PCM to keep the idle high.

Let me know what you find and we can go from there. Thanks

Sorry my response was of no help. Here is the procedure that you requested. The first is for a 2.4L and the second is for a 3.5L since we don't know which engine you have. They are the same except one has a step 6 and the other doesn't.

Please let us know how you make out. Thanks
