    Super high idle - 1992 Fleetwood

    I have a 92 Fleetwood 60 Special. It idols way too high and I can't for the life of me figure it out. Does anybody have any idea on what the problem could be?

    I'm checking into all that in the morning. Intake, injector ports, all lines and EGR. Any other possibilities would be appreciated. Thanks

    Idle Control Motor or Idle Speed Controller.
    I don't recall exactly what it's called. It mounts to the front of the throttle body and has a plunger that pushes against the throttle plate to control the idle speed.

    Check codes, vacuum, throttle linkage, and ISC threads on this forum.

    I checked that out and even unplugged it. No change, get a 55 code which is TPS out of adjustment??? It bolts on doesn't look like it is adjustable.

    The TPS is adjustable, it's giving the wrong reading to the computer, which in turn is commanding the ISC to move the throttle up until it sees the reading that it wants. Unplugging the ISC simply locks it into its incorrect position and your high idle remains. You have to either retract it fully until it does not touch the throttle lever at all or remove it entirely so you can observe the true TPS reading and adjust it accordingly. You want it to read 0.5v when the ISC is not touching the throttle. Search for the procedure on this board. You cant just slap a new TPS on there - it must be adjusted properly. Don't wait too long, high idle is hard on the transmission.
