2001 Toyota Avalon quits when at idle

I can start the vehicle and it will continue to run as long as I keep my
foot on the accelerator. As soon it goes to idle it quits immediately.
I had a similar problem like this before and the vehicle repair shop
cleaned a part in the fuel injection system. ( I believe it was a flap
sticking) It's been running good for 4-6 months and just started this
without any warning. Thanks for any advice.

Just had the same problem on the 2002 Avalon. Pulled the throttle body off and removed and cleaned the Idle mixture control valve which was caked in deposits. Runs like new now. About 2 hours of work or less. Common problem with this model I heard. Hope this helps. Some one gave me this info over a year ago and I finally got around to doing it.

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.

Idle too low on hot starts 2001 Avalon


Sounds like you idle air control valve is going bad. They start acting up on a hot engine due to sticking or high resistance through its internal windings. It will get to the point where the engine will stall every time you take your foot off the gas.
I suggest getting it replaced and the throttle body cleaned at the same time since it will need to be removed to replace the IAC.

2000 Avalon won't start and idle. Only while foot is on the gas


Avalons are prone to the the throttle body and Idle control valve getting gunked up over time. I took mine off, spent about 45 minutes cleaning it well with carb cleaner and q tips, and reinstalled. I haven't had the problem since. It is relatively easy, the hard part is not stripping the screws. Everthing is righ on top of the engine, not a hard repair. Mine did not have the smoke issue, however, it would start but would die as soon as you let off the gas.

Engine wont idle unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal


First, try a new accelerator pump. They're less than $10 and easy to install. On the side of the carburator, near the linkage. It's simple a small rubber diaphragm.
