4.9 V8. My caddy has idling and running issues. Car RPMs race up and down when idling. Recently car has shut off while idling in park and while driving. Replaced Idle Speed Control Actuator. The arm still moves in and out of the actuator, moving the throttle body up and down.

Daily driver and need help!

Welcome to AF, any check engine lite on, has a full scan been done? The usual suspects here are a vacuum leak, bad tps, carboned up throttle body, sticking egr.

How do i go about this process without blindly replacing parts. Would these potential issues show up on a scan?

New Idle speed Control Actuator still malfunctions, after new one was installed.

The t' body should be cleaned, the egr removed and cleaned, then leave it disconnected for test purposes, a scan should be done for tps operation and any vacuum leak source should be checked.

Did you adjust the ISC motor after installing it? Also, as noted, a common cause of the idling problem you experience is a dirty throttle body and plates.

Sorry for the delayed reply. I cleaned out the throttle body and plates and car runs much smoother! My car still idles too high, at startup it races to 2000 RPMS. I did adjust the Idle Speed Control Actuator. I am wondering the proper way to adjust the idle.

This is how you adjust the idle? What do you mean by enter diagnostics? What is the CCP? And i do not have an AC Compressor, i have a dummy pulley.
