Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual / Powertrain / Internal Combustion Powertrain Control / Q38 Throttle Body: Throttle/Idle Learn Engine Control Air Metering/Acceleration Throttle

Description

The engine control module (ECM) learns the airflow through the throttle body to ensurethe correct idle. The learned airflow values are stored within the ECM. These valuesare learned to adjust for production variation and will continuously learn duringthe life of the vehicle to compensate for reduced airflow due to throttle body coking.Anytime the throttle body airflow rate changes, for example due to cleaning or replacing,the valuesmust be relearned.

An engine that had a heavily coked throttle body that has been cleaned or replacedmay take several drive cycles to learn out the coking. To accelerate the process,the scan tool has the ability to reset all learned values back to zero. A new ECMwill also have values set to zero.

The idle may be unstable or a DTC may set if the learned values do not match the actualairflow.

Note:Do NOT perform this procedure if DTCs are set. Refer toDiagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List - Vehicle.

Engine idling for 3-minutes.Observe the scan tool Desired Idle Speed and the actual Engine Speed parameters.The ECM will start to learn the new idle cells and the Desired Idle Speed should startto decrease.Ignition OFF for 60-seconds.Start and idle the engine for 3-minutes.After the 3-minute run time the engine should be idling normal.

Note:During the drive cycle the check engine light may come on with idle speed DTCs. Ifidle speed codes are set, clear codes so the ECM can continue to learn.

If the engine idle speed has not been learned the vehicle will need to be driven atspeeds above 70-km/h (44-mph) with several decelerations and extended idles.After the drive cycle, the engine should be idling normally.If the engine idle speed has not been learned, turn OFF the ignition for 60-secondsand repeat step-6.Once the engine speed has returned to normal, clear DTCs and return to the diagnosticthat referred you here.
