86 Buick Regal T-Type w/ idle issues

Asked by Aug 16, 2012 at 10:16 PM about the 1986 Buick Regal T Type Turbo Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Runs fine, except when stopped, the car idles erratically, jumping up and down in rpm's every few seconds,
sometimes shutting off completely. I already replaced the idle air control valve. Any other suggestions?

When you replaced the IAC, did you clean the throttle body plate? Check for vacuum leaks too.

Check your EGR and PCV valve.
