Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
96 toyota camry LE 2.2....on hot humid days the idle will stay high or stick when letting off the gas sometimes going as high as 6-7000 rpm. Stomping on the fuel pedal seems to kick it back to normal but not all the time. After it has cooled it will start normally at 2000 rpm then go down to about 900 rpm but even that seems to take longer than I would think normal to warm up.

sound very much like a vacuum leak.... also maybe your timing is off? possibly advanced? try retarding it with the distributor if thats the case...

SOURCE: need marks for timimg belt
On the crankshaft gear there is a VERY small dimple that aligns with a mark on the motor. The mark on the motor (a small triangle) is at roughly 11 o'clock. After you line these timing marks up look at the camshaft gear and you will see that on one of the spokes there is a hole. You need to use a mirror to line this hole up with the dimple on the cover that is behind the camshaft gear. (It is at roughly 1 o'clock) If this hole is 180 degrees from where it should be you need to rotate the motor 1 more revolution at the crankshaft and it should now be lined up, or close. Once lined up I like to take a silver (metallic) Sharpie and make my own mark on the camshaft gear and on the backing plate that is behind it. You can make this mark where ever it is convenient for you. As long as you know where your marks line up, that is all that matters. This way I don't have to use the mirror as often.

the engine management system is trying to find correct idle speed/no fuel (when you take your foot of the gas above 850 rpm no fuel goes into the engine.help economy/egr system to burn off.try using a higher/lowe octane fuel to see if any change occurs.also try a gas treatment like unwins/redexe

Testimonial: "Hi I tried your suggestion on gas treatment and it seems to be working.I noticed in the actual owners manual it says to use 91 or higher octane gas."
