my car has trouble starting and when it does it is in park and the idle is at between 1k and 1200rpm
and it revs up and down by as much a 300rpm either way.
when in drive and stopped at a stop light it idles at 1k
i know for a fact the car is supposed to idle at 800rpm.
after a long drive I park the the car and the idle is at 2000rpm and reving up and down slightly from that.
its not good I know, cause when I shift gears the whole car lurches and the enging throws itself fowards in the motor mounts.
its at waayyy to high of and rpm for idling.
ive been told that the problem is the IAC valve.
i took off everthing to get to it and the darn thing is part of my intake system, it will not come off, no screws.
whats worse is that all the replacement parts online are $200
please tell me there is something I am missing here?
have the same problem?
