2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse, 2.4L, 4 Cylinder
I had some rough acceleration at times, so I got some of that spray cleaner and cleaned the Idle Air Control Valve and Throttle and now it drives a little better but the the idle is terrible. It’s a real battle trying not stall at stop lights and at start up.
On cold start I will hold the gas pedal to get revs a little high, but it revs back and forth 1000-3000 rpm, even thought I am holding the pedal steady. Once it gets warm it will no longer rev high like that, but it will stall on its own. I did spray the idle air control valve (unplugged) with that cleaner, could I maybe have fried the valve by spraying it? Any advice would be appreciated.
edit: I just realized looking at the spray bottle that I used Carburator Cleaner, CRC Brand instead of Throttle Body / AIr Intake Cleaner. Could that have caused the problem?
