Rough Idle Problem With My 2002 Sportage

2013 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Axe Man
I'm having trouble with my 2002 Sportage 2wd. It's shaking when the car is at a standstill (rough idling) or even in reverse sometimes. What could the problem be? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is the check engine light on? If yes, have the engine computer scanned. Unfortunately you are in California and in that state Autozone WON'T provide the free service that they do in the other 49 states. CARB told them they can't. So you'll have to go to a mechanic and pay upwards of $40 to $60 just to have them connect up a code reader and pull the code. That code can really provide important details as to what the problem is.
No, the engine light's not on, but someone recommended I clean my Idle Air Valve so I'll try that today...
I agree with that recommendation. Try cleaning the IAC.
