Check for engine vacuum leaks, most likely around the upper intake manifold arear, look for vacuum hoses that have come off or a missing vacuum port block off cap at the rear of the engine drivers side, large cap.

Why does 02 camry idle high when started?


It only revs up when u start the first in the morning? If so, it is normal, once it warm up it will back below 1000 rpm.

My opel Corsa lite Revs itself while idling or when I press the clutch while driving. The rpm stays @ 2.. What is the cause of this


A similar thing happend to me turns out it was the idle rev cold switch thing>
basically the switch which provides more fuel and revs when the car is cold, so that when you start the car it doesnt just die off.
the switch itself is a bit mechanical and is perhaps jammed on the full on position. If it happens more when the car heats up. then it is this switch.

what you can do is start your car one cold morning and see how high the revs are, if its still high then its probablly not the switch

Won't start, engine wont rev above 2000rpm


Have the alternator tested. You are providing a low charge to the battery when you jump it and when taking it above 2K RPM requires more amperage resulting in the engine dying and the rough idle
