94 Camry no high idle

I have no high idle on a 94 Toyota Camry 4cyl. There seems to be a vacuum controlled diaphragm that looks like it's supposed to extend outward and increase the idle by pressing on a cam attached to the throttle body. However when started, the diaphragm sucks inward actually moving further away from the cam that it looks like it should be pressing on. Any ideas?

That diaphragm has nothing to do with it, it is working as it should. The problem is the idle air control (IAC) valve located on the bottom of the throttle body, it's a common problem they can stick in one position. the remedy is to remove the throttle body, then remove the IAC valve then clean the carbon deposits from both, use a can of carbon cleaner/air intake cleaner and a brush, be sure the movable part of the valve can be pushed open the close by itself to where there is about 2 mm gap when cold.

1997 toyota camry V6 high idle

The idle is controlled by the car's computer, so it is getting wrong signals, or its controller is faulty. This is the Idle Air Control Valve, which may need cleaning or replacing. IAC is expensive, about $150, so try cleaning first. See here p271

Also possible is a failed A/C idle up vacuum switching valve (VSV), See p67, 209 and 295 in the above link. If testing this, do so when hot, as that is when they fail.

1991 Toyota Camry 4cyl idles at 1300 RPM... There is no idle adjustment screw. bad sensor of some sort? Can't pass my smog because the idle is too high. Runs okay otherwise.

look for a vacuum leak into the intake manifold (possible brake booster vac leak), check the idle air control valve for proper operation, check for EGR valve with bad diaphragm or stuck open.

Need help with 2003 toyota camry 4cyl idle

Changing the belt on your car will not make it idle rough, it would not matter if you put it on backwards, upside down, or inside out. The car would just spin the belt off or chew it up. I think that possibly a sensor wire or a vacuum line was broken or knocked off when you were installing the belt. Look for something like that and I think you will find your problem.

94 Toyota Camry has rough idle.

check for a small vacuum leak speciallythe lines going to the throtle have someone look at it while you seat onthe car , idle ,FOOT ON THE BRAKE ! a way to test for leaks if to spray a lil wd40 around the lines an listen if the idle gets better or worst, sometimes the reason the engine runs to rough or lean are vacumm lines that are slightly broken.

Idles to high

You may need an Idle Air Control Valve (a common problem), I would also change the thermostat as well. If its reading cold it will cause the car to idle high.
