So I cleaned my TB and the Idle Speed Sensor and now I am getting the engine light to come on and a code P0507 to show up. I have messed with it for over a week now and the same thing. I took the sensor back out today and looked it over and replaced it. Everything is hoked up right and it is still throwing the P0507 code andthe car does seem to idle faster.
What can be done to get it to run normal and quit throwing the code? The damn thing never done it until I decided to clean the Throttle Body.

Re: Idle Speed High?
Just for clarity, that is a valve, not a sensor. Sounds like it is working OK. How about the linkage? When it is idling high, can you force the throttle plate closed a little more? If so, that is your problem. If not, check the over pressurization valve at the other end of the manifold. It's a spring loaded flapper door so to speak. Listen for a vacuum leak. It's tucked way back in behind the P/S pump.
Ranger, that could be the culprit. I have had a loud whinning noise come from around the P/S pump area ever since this has been happening. The whinning could be a vacuum leak. I will check it tomorrow and let you know. Thanks!
Ranger, it is definately that flap your are talking about on the other side of the manifold. I don't know if I can open it or close it from where it is whithout removing the darn manifold. I have got a screw driver in there and pushed on it to close it and it will stop making the noise but once you rev up the motor it will open up a bit and make the high pitched squeeling agian. Well on the positive side I guess it isn't my P/S pump going out.
How difficult is it to remove the manifold? Looks like it might be a chore. Anything I should look out for, etc.?
Well i am still getting the "idle speed high" code and a service engine light. I have checked all of the vacuum lines and have made sure the Throttle Body plate was closing and the cable is not hanging up. Any other thoughts?
