You need to adjust the timing on the belts. This can be adjusted with a wrench. Adjustments should be made with slight measurements, a hair can change it. After adjustment, turn the car off and restart. Drive for a block and see where the RPM goes to when at idol. Keep adjusting until you get around 700-1,000 RPM.
Let me know if this helps.

1992 4runner idels rough sometimes

Check the intake hose to make sure that it doesn't have a whole in it also check the air box that the filter goes in also. Mine was idling rough also and we found a whole in the filter box and the intake hose had a whole in it. Hope this helps.

My 91 4runner idels at 1300 for days at a time turn the car off around 800 to 1000 turn the car back on back to 1300/// 97%of the time at 1300

When was the timing belt last changed? Check vacuum lines going to airflow sensor box near radiator on left side top. The smaller one affects airflow sensor readings. If it is cracked it will affect performance and idle speed.

Car wont idel and revs some times for no apparent reason its a hyundai xl 1995 duz it sound like the iac valve

If it has a carberator check to make sure that the throttle linkage is in a relaxed position when the car should be idoling in other words if the linkage is too tight then while your gas pedal may not be pressed the linkage is so tight that it is still pully on the throttle linkage and causing it to rev. The only reason i can think of it revving on its own though is maybe a tension spring on this linkage is broken and the linkage is loose and flopping back and forth from idel to throttle with bumps and other distrubances.

Rought idel

Your idle air control valve (IAC) is going out or your coolant level is low. This valve operates on the water temp. There's a 1/4 water line that goes to this valve. If the water level is low, the valve doesn't know what to do.

Hi, I have a 1994 4runner and I want to turn the idel down , how would I do this thanks so much. v6 3.0

here is the same disappointing news i got.. with the 3.0 you can adjust the idle .. which is good and bad! good being it will adjust itself,, bad being if its idling a lil high you cant turn it down some...most common reason it will idle high is due to a bad sensor or a vac, line leak.

in my case mine was idling about 1200 to 1500 rpms and huge power loss,,, i just dropped heads off today at cylinder head shop with burnt valve lol
