Question about 1987 Toyota Pickup

2 Answers

High idle when you let off on accelerator pedal; dies when engine speed goes down

This toyota has known carburetor problems. The idle speed stays high when you let off on the gas. The throttle does not return the way it is supposed to. A rubber band (at least it's not duct tape!) currently provides return tension.

Recently, when driving to Seattle, we came to a stop and it really wanted to die. When the engine speed dropped to idle (after hitting the pedal once or twice), the load seemed to want to kill it (this problem is newer than the high idle thing). When you shift to neutral and give it some gas, it still runs rough, but won't die. When going down the road at normal speeds, it seems to run fine.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I have a 2006 Toyota 140i manual transmission. Whilst waiting at the stoplight with the engine at idle ,the revs suddenly race up to 4000rpm & come down on its own. What could be the problem .


Following are the reasons for unstable engine rpm:
- Vacuum leak at intake manifold or Cracked intake manifold.
- Idle speed control valve is not re-learned.
- Weak cylinder compression or intake valve clearance is too low.
- Mass Air Flow sensor dirty or faulty.
- Fuel pump pressure is too low or high.
- Accelerator pedal sensor faulty.

2000 Toyota coaster it is a EFI.1HDE-FTE engine. While trottling it is fine but if I press the gas pedal and let go, the rev doesn't come down,it stays high, just keep a high rev,what could that be?


Do you have a check engine light on? Are you saying that the engine idle speed is excessively high? If that is the case have you checked for intake manifold vacuum leaks?

High rpm on its own when on idle and gear?


Check with your local Toyota dealer, this model may have had a recall notice out for this problem, if so they should fix it for free.

Engine not idling


When it's cold the idle will be high and it will go down to normal when it's warm. This is normal.

Toyota Rav 4 1997 .Check engine comes on .Codes are P0301,302,303,304116 . What to do.


The engine coolant temperature is high. Your other Codes are for missing cylinders on cylinder 1,2,3,and 4. Get the Codes cleared and start over. Changing the plugs and wires,etc could have generated the missing cylinder Codes.

Autozone,Advance, and Oreilys will scan for free.

Check your engine for an IDLE SPEED CONTROL SOLENOID, which may be in the intake. Or a fuel pressure regulator.

A lot of times people work on the spark side and forget the fuel injectors. They can cause a miss.

I have a 93 honda del sol manual when the car has been turned on it accelerates by itself and it has a check engine light dont now what is wrong with it


You probably have a bad Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). In fuel injected carburetors when the throttle valve is closed the IACV opens and closes to control the idle speed. If it malfunctions the engine may rev up allowing the car if in gear to accelerate on its own . When I had a bad IACV in my Mitsubishi Lancer it would drive down the road at 50 mph with out touching the gas pedal. Fortunately, it could be slowed down by using the brakes (unlike the Toyota stories).
