This is ironic. I am on hear searching because the same thing happen to me today. replaced the battery and was having the smae idle issues. After a few hours of investigating and looking for air leaks we ended up with the intake into the throttle body housing loose and found alot of build up in the throttle body housing. Cleaned it out with carb spray and problem seems to have gone away for now. Not sure if this helps but this is where I am so far. Also check engine light was on and the tech erased it after cleaning and it has not come back on. Code was for mass air flow sensor and I originally tried a new one and it didn't change anything until I cleaned the carbon build up in the throttle body housing.

Hesatation and rough idle

Hi, your Car needs a tune up. Have the spark plugs replaced a fuel injector cleaner added to the fuel tank and replace the air filter if it needs it. Change the oil and filter at least every 5,000 miles also. I believe by having these services done your rough run will be gone...

2002 impala 3.8L 180,000kms. Having problems with car hesitating on acceleration(not all the time). Had maf sensor & idle air control sensor replaced recently. Fuel filter, air filter,new plugs &...

it is possibly the throttle position sensor(tps) malfunctioning. basically the computer or "brain" of the car thinks the throttle is in a different position than it really is and automatically makes adjustments to fuel, air ect.... based on these false readings from the sensor thus causing the engine to react a little different when you expect to have power.

02 Toyota tundra won't idle. I put a new battery on and cleaned air filter

sounds like a bad idle control long as you're driving it and giving it gas it runs somewhat ok right? it won't idle by itself,or it idles up and down by itself and then dies?thats a sign of a bad idle control sensor,some times they straighten up after the engine warms up and run fine.but eventually go completely bad and won't idle at all. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

Intermittent rough idle on 2002 toyota highlander

before you do this I would get some wooden qtips - the long ones auto detailers use. take off the air filtrer assembly and spray carb cleaner into the air\fuel intake and use the qtip to wipe out the inside of the intake. I had the same problem with my highlander a year ago and this fixed the problem.

What are the service interval for items on the 2006 toyota prado

For oil and filter - every 3 -5,000 miles. rotate tires at same interval. air filter is on condition, so check it at oil change and clean it until it needs replacement. trans. fluid is on condition along with filter or I believe 60k miles. Belts and hoses are every 3 years or based on condition. Get a maintenance guide from an auto parts store or go to the dealer for an owner's manual, which will have all of this information.
