It may be one of the water temp. sensors at the thermostat housing.

also check the plug, wires,distributer cap and rotor.

good luck

Sounds like your 02 sensor needs replacement. Do that first. It should not cost you more than 40 bucks at the parts store. Very easy to replace. Perform a tune up if it's due and check your timing.

If you replaced the whole engine wire harness,make sure all connectors are hooked up , if they ok ,check MAP sensor and temp. sensor .it might be your problem.If possible swap them with known good used ones, or just try to disconnect it and see if it runs any better.

My 1991 Celica GTS has a fast idle even when the engine is warm. I have already turned the idle adjust screw all the way down.


The idle on these is controlled electronically by an IAC solenoid (idle air control). Adjusting the screw will not do anything to adjust your idle down. Chances are you could have a vacuum leak, or a faulty IAC solenoid. I would start by checking for vacuum leaks.

1985 toyota 4x4 22re missing and rough idle


Have you pulled out the spark plugs to see if there are any tell tale signs on them.They are a good indicator of many problems that occur and can save a lot of time isolating the problem.They should all be the same colour.Is the air box and lid properly secured with no leaks or splits in the intake tube.Have you put injector cleaner in the fuel tank to clear up any possible dirty injectors.Therse a few things your problem could be including engine vacuum leak which you can find by lightly spraying carburettor cleaner around suspect places such as inlet manifold and around injector seals.
