the MAF sensor is between the air filter and throttle body. the idle controll is at the throttle body.  Its located on the throttle body on the left side. Follow the air intake to an intake manifold which sits on top of the throttle body.

SOURCE: Intermittent rough idle on 2002 toyota highlander

before you do this I would get some wooden qtips - the long ones auto detailers use. take off the air filtrer assembly and spray carb cleaner into the air\fuel intake and use the qtip to wipe out the inside of the intake. I had the same problem with my highlander a year ago and this fixed the problem.

    I have a 1998 toyota corolla fuel injection. when starting in the morning it does not idle until engine is hot.

    This is a well known problem with your engine. The idle is controlled by the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC), which is driven by a little motor controlled by the car's computer. The valve is dirty and sticky. Once cleaned it should work fine. There is a lot on the Net about it, just Google Corolla Idle Air Control Valve

    My 89 toyota pickup 22re fuel injected serges when idling when its warmed up

    The Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) may need cleaning or replacement.

    This valve lets air bypass the throttle plate so that the engine can idle. The more air, the faster the idle. If this valve is sticky, the computer may have a hard time regulating the idle properly and may surge.
