engine lopes with a/c on

cwalkerjr21 :

Hello, what kind of vehicle are we working on here?

Customer:

2000 chevy blazer 2 door

cwalkerjr21 :

Have you replaced or cleaned the idle air control valve?

Customer:

no

cwalkerjr21 :

This is very common when summer comes around. Do you have the 4.3 engine?

Customer:

yes

cwalkerjr21 :

I am going to load up the steps to replace so you can remove it and clean it. Give me a few moments.

Customer:

ok

cwalkerjr21 :

After you get it all cleaned up it should work like a champ.

Customer:

i'll try it tomorrow and let you know. too tired tonight. thank you

cwalkerjr21 :

There is a reset that can be done on the IAC. But honestly most of the times it gets a build up causes it to stick.

Customer:

thank you

cwalkerjr21 :

To try the reset its easy. Start the engine let it run for 20 seconds than turn it off for 10 seconds and restart.

cwalkerjr21 :

This will reset the valve pintle location on the IAC but if it is full of gunk it will do the same thing.

cwalkerjr21 :

Good luck and let me know if you need further assistance.

Customer:

i will thank you

cwalkerjr21 :

You are welcome!
