23 Apr 2002 12:18:17 -0600, suggested: : I've been digging myself in a hole trying to figure out what is causing my : car to idle strangely. Ever since I got the car in January it has been : exhibiting a strange behavior where when I first put it into Drive or : Reverse the idle fluctuates sharply up and down at about 1 : cycle-per-second and then gradually smooths out to an almost smooth idle. : This problem reoccurs when I come to a stop at stoplights. : : I recently had the AIC valve (and intake O-rings) replaced to correct an : issue with the car stalling when it was cold, and I'd hoped that it might : resolve this problem as well, but no such luck. : : Could this be a transmission problem? It's a little bit of a nuisance, but : not worth an expensive fix in my opinion unless it's an indicator of a : more serious problem on the way. : : Thanks for any insight. Update: Now the car is stalling fairly regularly. -- agreenbu Return to Main Index
