Question about 2006 Lexus Is 250

1 Answer

Shaking when in Drive, but Idle

Over the past few months, every now and then when I come to a stop at a red light and sit idle for anywhere from 20 seconds to a few minutes, something in the engine causes a vibration to travel from the engine down through the car. This is only when I am not moving (i.e. not pushing on the accelerator) so I am thinking that there may be a problem with the pressure in the fuel line.

You may just need the throttle body cleaned.I have seen this quite a few times on Toyotas and it could transfer to the cousin.

I have a 2003 Harley Davidson edition F 150 that when you drive it consistently for greater than 15 to 20 minutes and come to a stop dies


I recommend you hook up a scanner and view the data coming off the tps, map, etc. while driving. I'm thinking the tps may be going out and does not drop properly when you take your foot off the pedal. The pcm may not be engaging the iac until the truck dies and is restarted. You need live data to solve this problem.

have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for pump-regulator pressure and filter performance. You state that the filter was last changed in 2007 so it is well past it's blocked up date .. Run fault codes . replace the canister . Have a compression test done as the engine is getting long in the tooth and may need refreshing .. Check that the cat converter is still operational as they will block up the exhaust system and cause poor performance

My MAzda 2003 MPV ES.The evap and EGR still incomplete, need reset on the monitor- drive test; everything else passed the smog. no codes show on scanner. FEw months ago, I chage the battery, but I was told...


Here is the procedure for allowing system to run each of the separate mode tests.
EGR : Start engine and warm up completely. Make sure all electrical loads are off (A/C headlights, blower fan, and rear window defroster) Accelerate to between 49-57 mph and hold a very steady speed for 1 minute. Decelerate to a stop and turn off engine.
EVAP : Ensure Baro pressure is 21.3 inHg or higher, Intake air temp is 41-95 'F, Fuel tank level is between 25-75%, Battery voltage is 10.9-14.6 volts. Start engine and idle for more than 10 seconds then turn key to off. Leave vehicle to sit for 5 hours or more. Start engine and race to 3500 rpm to warm up completely the idle for more than 15 minutes. Accelerate and then drive vehicle at very steady speed between 40-50 mph for more than 5 minutes. Stop vehicle and turn key to off. Leave vehicle undisturbed for 20 minutes or more.
When I say steady speed in the above, try to keep dead on to a set speed to help ensure the test is run. Especially for the EGR as this is when the test will be performed and if speed/rpm is not very steady then test will not be performed. The Evap test will be ran during that final 20 minute or more sitting period (or should be anyway).

2000 Maxima Engine will stall after about 20 seconds when coming to a stop at a red light or stop sign


this is caused by a sludged up intake track and idle speed control valve. do the following exactly as stated in the instructions.

, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Fuel pump or filter possibly


the idle control sensor could be bad give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local GM dealership and ask for the manager and he can tell you what is going on if that fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for you car wish you the best Michigan Man.

there may be an idle adjustment on the idle air control valve but what happens if you come to a stop and place trans in neutral before complete stop ???

point is that you could be looking at just an adjustment or possible internal transmission problem

Air conditioner runs hot after a few minutes sitting idle. get cold while driving but goes hot after i stop or come to a red light


Check the belt that is attached to the alternator make sure its not loose. If that's fine then you may be low on freon refrigerant. Have someone check the pressure levels in the high and low side of your system.

Battery chaged and car DOES NOT idle


when u disconnected the battery u lost the adaptive idle learn program, do the following to clean the intake and allow normal idle

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
