Problem sounds like IAC (idle air control) or EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) Is there a check engine (MIL) light on with rhe issue. I just replaced an EGR valve on a camry this weekend with the same issue.

Starts up, can give it gas, but won't accelerate?


Could be. Or the fuel pressure is low, or something is blocking the exhaust or air intake.

1995 toyota corolla, car will not turn over, hs power and wants to turn over, but does not


While the engine is cold, try starting it and giving a little gas while you start it. If it starts, release your foot and see if it keeps running. If it stalls out, start it again (by giving a little gas again) and then keep your foot on the gas slightly to keep it from going to it's normal idle. Once the engine is warmed up, let off the gas and see if it stays running again. If it does then you need to clean/reaplace the IAC valve that is on the throttle body.

If you can, remove it and clean it out with carb cleaner (like B-12) and an old toothbrush. It could save you some money from having to replace it.

My Toyota tercell, 1997 has started to shake pretty bad while idling, it stops some when the AC kicks in but shortly after starts to shake again. Runs fine while driving.


Sounds like you may have a bad motor mount. While driving and under a torque situation you wont notice it as much,but at idle you will as it has extra room to move.

1993 toyota tercel,idles up and down at a fast constant rate.but runs well otherwise,no engine light on,checked all vaccuum,egr,throttle bod


If it tends to cut off when no gas given but sometimes idles up very fast & then slows back down, probably the idle air control valve. If so, will have to be replaced to fix.

Running problems


Idle air control valve or a vacuum leak, the idle air control valve controls the amount of air let into your engine when you start or while running you holding your foot on the gas lets more air in.

1989 Toyota tercel smoke coming up by ebrake


I think maybe that you have a plugged catylitic converter. When cats get plugged they get hot, very hot. If there is anything onit ie. dirt, road oil, anything at all, it will burn it off. The best thing I can suggest is loosen the bolts upstream of the cat and remove the dougnut gasket. replace the bolts and drive the car. if it runs better then replace the cat. It will be loud, but we just want to look at power and idle.
