SOURCE: computer reads multiple misfires rough idle trouble starting

The air fuel mixture sensor is probably starting to fail. You need to have a simple diagnosis done at the shop and then have it replaced - they are usually not much a reputable mechanical shops. When the motor warms up your air/fuel mixture changes hence the rough idle etc. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Exhaust pipe rattles when car idles. Had muffler

Check the heat shield on the Catalytic Converter, after a few years they start to rust off and rattle. Crawl under the Pathfinder and bang along the Converter and muffler area and see where it's coming from.   Good chances are, it's from the heat shield since you already had everything changed from the Cat back.
Good luck and hope this helps.

IAC valve has gone bad. Its located on the throttle body and is what controlls/keeps the vehicle running at idle.

black smoke from exhaust means a rich oil/fuel ratio, sometimes it causes by a clogged air filter or a problem on fuel injection system.

1999 toyota 4runner, 140K miles: for 2 weeks, have problem starting when cold in morning. takes 3-4 clicks and foot on gas pedal to start. now also problem starting when warm after driving for 30mins....


Sounds like a sticky throttle if you can't keep idle. It won't hurt to try.... you can try a quick cheap trick by spraying a little carbon remover (buy at any auto store i.e. autozone, oreiley's) inside the throttle, open the valve, spray just small amount, close it back up and rev it a few times and repeat. It removes the carbon film after long use. fixed my idle issue in my cars. If its really bad you might have to clean it thoroughly but i highly doubt you have to do that.

My car will not idle by itself...and to start it i have to put my foot on the gas pedal. i have to keep my foot on the pedal a little bit to keep it running by itself, but only for a little while....


There seems to be several issues. Can't say a lot about the gauges not working except that relays power groups of equipment functions and if a relay does not provide power then the gauges can't work.

For a fast idle, a sequence called the "cold start sequence" is suppose to increase idle. This is triggered by an engine temperature sensor. Some cars have 2 with one working the dash gauges and the other is used to work the engine controls. Yours is likely either sending a signal that the engine is hot (and it is not) or the signal is missing.

When the engine knows it is cold, the idle will speed up until the engine is warm.

The dim headlights can be dim from a power drain, or the engine is not idling fast enough to charge.
