Question about 2006 Saturn ION

1 Answer

How do I get my 2006 Saturn ion idle to relearn?

I changed my Throttle body recently due to a constant code of low idle coming up. It was changed and now the idle sits at 1500-2500 and sticks even in neutral. Any suggestions, I'll take them all?

Where is idle adjustment screw on 1989 nissan sentra


on the throttle body. the gas pedal cable from inside the car leads under the hood on drivers side to the throttle body. throttle body is attached to the intake.
*****you should not have to adjust your idle. itusually means that there is a bad sensor if your idle has changed suddenly,****
what exactly is the car doing? ex.fluctuating rpms?, low constant idle?, high idle?

Throttle sticks closed when engine is running


It sounds like you are saying it sticks in idle. The throttle valve shafts may be binding, or it just may need a good cleaning. Buy a GM approved product cleaner for your throttle body. Many have a special surface coating on the inside for smoother air flow, and the trusty old wd40 or even regular carburetor cleaner can not be such a good idea, or so I've heard.

Sounds like you may have disconnected the battery. Does the rough idle only happen when the defroster or A/C is on? If so clean your throttle body with throttle body cleaner with the battery disconnected. When finished, drive it for 5 or so miles with the defroster / AC off to let the computer relearn the settings. This will solve your problem.

Code comes up as low rpm,s changed plugs and wires air filter and added injector cleaner to the gas still comes up low rpm,s but runs great


you have to remove the throttle body and clean it really good there is a small hole through the butterfly that usually gets plugged up with grime also remove the idle air control valve that needs cleaning while you have throttle body out. do this and clear your codes and i am sure you wont have a low idle again. in any case do not adjust the idle screw that is never the solution.

P2176=Throttle Actuator Control System - Idle Position Not Learned
Did you use all you old sensors,or is some of them from the new engine,I would swap out the IAC sensor or check for wires not hooked up.
If it can't relearn to idle the Idle air control might be different then your old one,but its not registering with the computer

Sounds like idle air control valve sticking. If i remember correctly, the idle air control valve is built into the throttle body. This is the part that connects between the air filter and inlet manifold. take this off and clean thoroughly with carb cleaner. if this does not work, then renew part.
