I have a 1999 GT and I am having really bad idle surges when the AC is on and I come to a complete stop. The idle is fine when I have the AC on and the car is in in traffic...the idle surges from 300rmp to about 1400rmp and does this for the duration of time that I am stopped....sometimes it almost shuts off...

I've cleaned the MAF, clean the air filter (K&N), replaced the IAC valve, the EGR valve, PCV valve and I have a new ECM (about 3 months old). Am I not checking something??? Could it be low on freon or something.

It only happens when I come to a stop!!! Any advice...Thanks.

Is your CEL on? I had the exact same symptoms when my upstream o2 sensors were not responding. As soon as I replaced them it cleared the idle right up.

Could have to do with your IAC valve...

I'm going to assume TPS is Throttle Position sensor or am I missing an acronym??


How hard was this to replace? My 2000 GT just started showing these exact symptons this weekend when it was 96 degrees outside.

Mine is also blowing hot air out the vents, so I don't know if this is exactly the same problem, but I'm willing to give it a shot.
