I replaced the cam sensor, and it got worse. It only did it with the AC on.
The crank sensor tells the computer how fast the engine is running so that's next. Then the chassis speed sensor. Of course though the obvious is to do a thorough search for a vacuum leak.

I did hook up an OBD11 scanner, and drop the idle down. It was at 12.2 %.
The lowest it would go was 11.4% without the screw touching the tab.
I brought it up to11.8%, However there was play in the throttle pedal, but it's only noticeable when driving, which I found odd.
Suprisingly the engine became quiter with an increase in acceleration and smoothness. Not a huge amount but noticeable. It also leveled out at a steady 800 rpm. It was slightly higher before. I'm keeping a wrench handy, and keep making tiny adjustments after driving to zero in on the exact spot where the play is gone.
With no Scanner a good starting point 1/2 turn after the screw touches the tab. The drive it and make small adjustments until the play in the pedal is gone. Stop there.
My 2001 Sportage runs like a champ.

Cheap electronics replacement parts can really screw you up. Been there done that. Bought a cheap IAC valve online then spent months, or more looking everywhere else for the problem. Then one day I checked it with an ohm meter. Dang thing never worked right from the start. Pep boys has Bosche parts that match OEM. Saved money and have a choice online at Rock Auto too.

This is a horrible website. The user interface is 50% useless.

Sorry for the complaint Ron. Tried to avoid getting my Laptop out. Seems it's the only option.

My Sportage did all that weird Idling stuff. It was a cheap IAC I installed. Then I was able to adjust the Idle. Once in a while it has a quick drop in throttle, but it runs like a car should.
Also you should always disconnect the battery when you change anything, and allow a few days and miles for the ECM to re-learn.

Location ???

When do you expect you'll be able to get the location added using your laptop?

Other's have managed it with their smart phones.
