SOURCE: Intermittent rough idle on 2002 toyota highlander

before you do this I would get some wooden qtips - the long ones auto detailers use. take off the air filtrer assembly and spray carb cleaner into the air\fuel intake and use the qtip to wipe out the inside of the intake. I had the same problem with my highlander a year ago and this fixed the problem.

If you are using that much oil you either have a BIG leak or your BURNING oil through bad rings

Where is the idle control valve located on a 2001 toyota highlander


I have a 2003 highlander and when I brought the car in for the "free" computer update at 110,000 miles they told me the idle air control valve needed to be replaced before they could do the "free" upgrade! Cost from dealer $00 labor, $500 for parts.
I cleaned it like other said and it worked for awhile but eventually I went to the parts store and bought the part for $200. Trying to find a good breakdown of exactly where it is on the throttle body was impossible. Everything said I had to disconnect the cables to the throttle body. I didn't want to do this for fear of changing the settings. Once I had the part in my hand I climbed up into the engine bay to see behind the throttle body and ther was the control valve! 2 screws, removed it, cleaned the gasket, put it on the new valve and replaced the valve. Works great at 136,000 miles. I have the old one all cleaned up in case I need to change it again. Total cost just a little over $200 with tax and cleaning solutions. Time to replace 30 minutes if you take your time!
I don't go back to toyota any more, they want to rip you off everytime.

I have 98,000 miles on a 2001 Highlander and don't know when I last change the plugs. When should I change the spark plugs and what elso do I need to do to tune the engine. Thanks


Generally, spark plugs used in cars today are supposed to last up to 100k. Most experts recommend replacing the plugs and fuel filter every 35,000 to 50,000 miles. The timing belt and serpentine belt should have been replaced at 75,000 miles and the transmission fluid should have be serviced by now.

My toyota caldina won't idle


*** could be caused by an air leak in one of hoses that are part of the engine management system. They run everywhere so don't take them all off once but check each one in turn to see if it is cracked or broken.There is also the possibility that you simply need to increase the idle speed adjustment.

I have a 2001 Toyota Highlander with 128,000 miles. It has started using oil on highway miles. When driving on a 12 hour trip, we had to add oil 3 times. I have always taken the vehicle to the Toyota...


have your dealer inspect it for leaks, with this kind of mileage your valve cover gaskets, oil pan sealer and seals start to develop leaks, also try to use a good quality oil because areation is worst with cheap oils,

2003 toyota highlander will not idle, must keep foot on the accelerator to keep engine running. AS soon as my foot is removed from the accelerator the engine cuts off.


The first place I would look is the IAC motor (idle air control) usaully on throttle body and possibly dirty throttle body and one last thing could possibley be EGR valve exaust gas recir. as if it stuck open it will lean out engine.
