Code P0506-Air Idle problems...
So, upon starting the '06 foz this afternoon it began idling below 500 rpm... Pulled code P0506-Idle control rpm lower than expected. Depressing the accelerator gets a sluggish response, but once the foz is moving there seems to be no serious issue with engine performance. A couple of times when turning the wheel all the way to the right pulling into a parking spot I have noticed an odd sound (vacuum issue?). No clue what's up with this.
I've looked around for any other threads with the same set of problems I'm having, but I haven't found anything that seems to be close enough to help. The extended warranty just ran out, so a dealership can kiss my @ss.
Anyone ever experience this before? Any suggestions on what to do? Might an air idle issue cause some kind of problem with the steering?? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
