What causes erratic engine idle?

Causes of a rough idle. Many different problems could result in a rough idle for your car or truck, including: dirty fuel injectors, clogged air filters, bad spark plugs, and a variety of exhaust system issues.

What causes RPM to fluctuate while idling?

Why does my engine's RPM seem to fluctuate (runs rough)?

Engine hunting and surging at idle is usually caused by a fuel delivery, air leak, or governor system problem. Cleaning/overhauling the carburettor, adjustment of the governor, and/or changing the air filer may be required.

Why does my engine stall when I give it gas?

The car will stall if the valve is too clogged or when it finally fails. If, while holding the accelerator pedal down, a small amount of pressure keeps the car running at a stop, the idle control valve may require attention. In most late model cars, this problem will usually trigger the Check Engine light.

What could cause rough idling and stalling?

The fuel pump, which is responsible for pulling fuel from the gas tank to the fuel injectors, can become clogged or defective. If this happens the engine will not get enough fuel, which can cause a rough idle, sputtering, stalling and even slow acceleration. ... A rough idle is one symptom of a clogged fuel filter.

What are the symptoms of a bad idle control sensor?

Usually a bad or failing idle control valve will produce a few symptoms that can alert the driver of a potential issue.

Why my car rpm goes up and down?

Hi There, It sounds like you may have a dirty or failing idle air control valve causing your engine idle to fluctuate. ... When this happens, the job of the idle air control valve is to bring this deceleration down to a slow and smooth idle rather than suddenly cutting off the fuel supply causing the motor to die.

Why is my engine surging at idle?

If an engine is not getting enough fuel (this is called “running lean”), due to fuel pressure (regulated by the fuel pump and regulator), restricted fuel injectors, a vacuum leak or really anything that throws off the fuel mixture going in to the engine, this can cause the surge.

Why does my Jetta idle go up and down?

When the engine RPM drops below the normal range of 750-800 RPM (for most cars), this often times will cause the engine to stall indicating a dirty or faulty idle air control valve. Since your car is idling up and down, this may suggest that it may be receiving incorrect voltage causing it to fluctuate erratically.

How do you fix an idle surge?

The cure for this condition is to clean the valve with some aerosol throttle cleaner or engine top cleaner. Here's how to clean the IAC valve: Disconnect the air intake ductwork from the throttle body. Start the engine, then increase and hold the idle speed to 1,000 to 1,500 rpm.

What does it mean when your car starts but wont stay on?

Answer: If the engine cranks but won't start, check for spark and fuel pressure. If it doesn't crank at all, check the battery condition. ... Usually, when the engine warms up and then stops, it is an indication of a problem with an ignition coil, ignition module or even the fuel pump.

How can you tell when your fuel pump is going out?

A damaged fuel pump might make a loud, whining sound that you'll hear from your gas tank. The pump may also make this noise if you're low on fuel or the fuel in your tank is contaminated. The normal noise your pump makes is a low hum. Loud whining indicates there is a problem.

Why does my car feel like it wants to turn off?

The vehicle can have idling problems when there is an issue with fuel or exhaust issues. You can have the fuel pressure tested at the engine to see how much fuel is being supplied to the engine. If the pressure is low then you may need a new fuel pump and filter, but should at least change the fuel filter and retest.
