Thread: Idle jumps up with air inrush sound.

  1. #1

    Default Idle jumps up with air inrush sound.

    New install of Sniper on SBC. Engine runs great. Idles perfect, but I'm noticing an intermittent idle increase when coming to a stop. It happens maybe 2 or 3 times on a 15 minute drive. I notice a sound of air inrush from engine compartment when this occurs. It lasts for 3 or 4 seconds and the sound stops and idle returns to normal. What can cause this and how do I fix?

    Danny, thank you for the response. I checked that out and now I'm wondering if maybe my issue could be from when my Electric Fan #2 comes on, since it seems to happen when temp goes up a little when I come to a stop. My car does not have A/C, and I'm not using the A/C Kick. This morning I set A/C Kick to zero, even though wire is not connected, and I did not notice the intermittent IAC idle increase. Also found that IAC motor wires were very close to a plug wire. I corrected that as well. Hopefully this solved my issue. Dennis
