HELP ASAP!!!

Cleaned my maf and throttle body today. Completely removed tb to clean it when I put everything together and restarted my car my idle was all over the place. At first it was like a chugging or throbbing sound. I turned it off and disconnected my battery. Waited a few mins and reconnected and started the car and turned on all my accessories. The car is now idling extremely high. Around 2000+ rpm and really wants to pull even when I'm pressing on the brake. Someone pls help me get it back to normal!!!!

I know about the threaded rod to reset base idle but I'm not sure what to do with it or how to change it. Does anyone have any info?

Sounds like your tps or throttle position sensor isn't functioning right. Did you take it off when you cleaned everything. If you hooked it back up wrong it can do that. Also sometimes when removing the tps it can be ruined in the process. Happened to me when I put a new throttle on my car.

The front right bolt* didn't line up when replacing and over tightened it I guess. Everything else was flush and went back easily. Really weird

Lol I cleaned my maf a few months back, forgot to plug it back in when I put it back together, the car drove like I was towing an f150 followed by the check engine light, only drove it 2 miles than pulled over when the light came on, i started freaking the f out and almost posted a quick help me thread on ME, popped my hood before i did so and slapped myself in the head when i saw the maf was disconnected lmao!

did you clean your IAC while you were cleaning the MAF and TB...if not it's just two bolts and can really make a difference in how smooth it idles even though you got it back to where it needs to be. I clean all three about every 6 months

No I didn't, to b honest I'm kind of a newbie. Dnt know my way around an engine too well yet. Trying to learn as I go. Taking apart the tb was probably the biggest job I've done to date. I would def b interested in cleaning it if u could give some details and descriptions of the IAC. Cleaning the maf, tb, adding fuel injector cleaner, and seafoaming vacuum line and engine really woke up my car. It was like night and day. I was so impressed w the outcome.

You've got a good start. Just keep tinkering and staying up with the forum and you'll be a know-it-all gear head like most of these other bums here. Lol
