Question about 2002 Toyota Highlander
When I start the vehicle it will run for a brief moment and then it will cut off. your asisstance would be appriciated.
I am having the same problem with a 2002 Highlander, V6. I have read in other posts that the Idle Control valve may be to blame. I took out the throttle body and cleaned it out thoroughly. Solved some of the problem but it will occasionally be difficult to start when cold and I drive a short trip. I plan on replacing the idle control valve in the near future. I found a temporary fix is to turn on the car and keep the idle up near 2000 rpm for about a minute (allows engine to circulate oil) and then rev up the engine to about 5000 rpm a few seconds at a time. I am then able to drive off with minimal problems.
