SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry IAC cleaning

1) remove the black intake hose from the throttle body
2) get a can of throttle body/intake cleaner
3) be VERY careful if you decide to use the straw included with the can of cleaner, it can detach and go inside of your intake manifold.
4) spray inside and use a rag to remove junk from throttle plate(front and back side), hold the straw on the cleaner can and spray into the hole just ahead of the throttle plate, let soak for 10 minutes or so
5) reattach intake hose and start engine - you may get black smoke/rough idle for a minute as junk exits the engine

SOURCE: CLEAN THROTTLE BODY ON AUTO - TOYO CAMRY 98 -WANT

have been spraying into throttle bodies for years, never had a problem messing up plugs. but if you are insistent, you can remove the throttle body from the intake and clean it outside of the car. note that you may need to replace throttle body gasket after removing it depending on how well it comes apart and how well it seals once put back together.
Here's one more idea if you're careful, though i don't think i recommend this. You could stuff a small clean shop rag just through the throttle flap so it's actually in the intake manifold (make sure you can get it back out when you're done) and then spray all through the throttle body. The rag should soak up any excess fluid and then pull it back out when you're done. The reason i don't recommend this is because you may get fibers or other unfiltered debris in the intake and then into the cylinders which could theoretically scratch your cylinder walls and compromise compression to a degree or cause you to burn oil (yeah i guess it's not likely but it has to be possible).

SOURCE: on a 04 camry with 2.4 ltr engine, can I replace

I think the terms "Throttle Positon Sensor", TPS and "Throttle Body" can be misleading at least in regards to the 04 Camry.

My 04 Camry gave a diagnostic reading of P2121 for my problem "Throttle PEDAL position switch D circuit". However, we changed out the complete Throttle Body/TPS (Toyota Part #22030-0H020) that did NOT fix problem.

The 04 Camry TPS Electronic Module "Throttle Positon Sensor" is factory assembled and riveted to the side of the throttle body. The only way to service/inspect it would be to cut off or drill out the rivets. Not sure you could open the darn thing if you got it off, but that seems to be the only way Toyota sells them!!

Hopefully a new Throttle PEDAL Position Sensor (Toyota Part # 78010-33010 PEDAL ASSY, ACC)
will fix it. This is located under the dash near the accelerator pedal.

So, now I would recommend FIRST to replace the "Throttle PEDAL Positon Sensor" (it is much, much cheaper) and then the Throttle Body/TPS assembly!! Unless of course, you get a diagnostic code as you did for "faulty throttle body!!

2009 Camry 5 Speed Manual trans. Has a rough, low idle below 500 RPM whats the cause?


Clean the throttle body bore and plate of any carbon deposits. Also, clean and check the IAC idle air control circuit . If it has electronic controlled throttle body it will not have the IAC. Carbon deposits around the throttle body bore and plate (butterfly) can restrict airflow at idle causing the low uneven idle.

How to clean the throttle body and the idle air control valve


I typically remove them to clean but they can be cleaned on the car. Get throttle body cleaner from the store and spray all over. Manually open the butterfly valve and wipe after. I would take the idle air control vavle off to clean it.

After replacing the ALT 100A fuse in my 2002 Solara the idling is so low the car won't stay on unless I give it gas; it turns off at any full stop I come to. Any ideas what could be causing this?


Your throttle body has built up gunk in it. When the power was lost from the blown fuse, the learned values in the ecu for idle were lost. After this the default values are used, which are too low for stable idle when there the throttle body is dirty.

Remove the intake hose from the throttle body and clean the inside of the throttle body with a rag wetted with throttle body cleaner or non-chrlorinated brake parts cleaner. Be sure to open the throttle plate to get it totally clean.
Your idle will return to normal afterwards.

Changed battery and now Camry will not idle.


Was it idling before you changed the battery? If you were to clean out the throat of the aluminum inlet manifold just behind the throttle body with a parts cleaner product that is safe for plastics (sensors) the car will idle.
The engine features a intake valve cover vent that goes back into the front of the throttle body. After time, the vent tube deposits a lot of oil and gunk in the throttle body assembly and just behind it into the intake manifold.

I changed the air filter and my car bogs when i idle, like if their was a leak but no leaks found.


if you have never cleaned the throttle body, it is possible with the a/c engaged and vehicle in gear that the idle will drop down low. clean the throttle body of carbon buildup. should idle around 725 or so.

Replaced the battery in 2002 camry now it won't idle


When you replace battery in 2002 Camry ECM tries to reset to factory levels. The reason it will not idle is that the throttle body is dirty and ECM thinks it should be new!! Clean throttle body with cleaner that is safe for tbs and this will fix your idle problem.

My gas pedal is sticking in my 2000 camry


This is due to the throttle flap sticking within the throttle body. The throttle flap is operated by the accelerator cable which turns the semicircular control on the throttle body. Remove the air hose to get access to the throttle body. Use carburetor cleaner to clean out where the flap sits in the body. There'll be lots of black gunk to remove with cleaner on a clean cloth. Reassemble and no more sticking accelerator.

Need to locate toyota aurion/camry iac valve


the MAF sensor is between the air filter and throttle body. the idle controll is at the throttle body.  Its located on the throttle body on the left side. Follow the air intake to an intake manifold which sits on top of the throttle body.
