First I suggest a full tune up, including air and fuel filters. If you have already taken care of this, then you maybe overloading or flooding your engine with fuel. If the problem seems worse when you first start the car in the morning and gets slightly better as it warms up then you may have a bad coolant temperature sensor. This is about a $30 part. This sensor adjusts the amount of fuel pumped through your injectors to make up for cold temps much like choking an older vehicle. If it goes out, it sends the ECM a signal that the temp is negative 27 f and so it dumps all the fuel it can on the fire to compensate. A good indicator of this would be poor fuel milage, with this car you should be getting between 27 and 32 mpg. Most mechanics charge about 60 to 90 bucks to change this part.

SOURCE: Idles rough upon start , goes dead when letting up on gas.

If the bat went dead and was disconnected it can take 25 to 50 miles of driving for computer to reset sensors and controls. Sounds like MAF Sensor maybe reading different than when it was first driven. Did you drastically change climates or altitudes, New readings from when it originally was put into service. Slight changes in temp, alt and other variables gradually reset, if driving does not improve within 50 miles it will need diagnostics.

Have you changed the air filter. It may have come in contact with paint and boy work dust.

SOURCE: 1994 acura integra--Paint job.

The surface rust would have to be removed, then it would eliminate the rust.

A good paint job will cost anywhere from $2000-$3500 for that car.

SOURCE: Toyota Camry idles then dies

It is NORMAL for the engine computer to have to "Relearn" how to idle the engine after a battery replacement. This should only be temporary and will go away after a few trips.

If it does not go away, or if the Check Engine light is coming on, it will require diagnosis to determine the cause. Nobody can tell you if the problem is related to your recent work until the cause of the problem is located.

Poor idling and stalling on deceleration can be caused by anything from a bad Idle Speed Control motor (ISC)
to low fuel pressure (Clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump) to a bad connection in the A/C clutch sensing circuit. (Kicks the idle up when the A/C compressor is running)

How much does it cost to re paint a Toyota corolla

depends on the job you want and the painter doing the job and the paint to use
A full paint job using metallic paint ( glass removed , door handle removed , bump strips off etc ) will set you back around $3.000.00 aud
if you want a fast flash job for resale around $500.00 by a backyard painter.
get quotes from several paint shops and be specific in what you want done

Poor idling after battery terminal removal

The computer has it lost its memory when you disconnected battery, this is normal.The computer has to relearn over again. Takes 3to 5 drive cycles for it to relearn. To avoid this you can hook a battery to your dc outlet to save memory or buy a plug to hook to your diagnostic port to save memory. Napa sells them , like 12 to20 dollars. Just takes a 9volt battery.

Engine start but failed to idle

Clean the throttle body and service the idle air control valve assembly.
Remove the key from ignition switch, remove the negative (-) battery terminal for five minutes and relearn the idle air control valve. You can read my previous posts about how to do it.

My Toyota Quantum 2.7GL idles but does not rev up. i ve changed the fuel pump and filter but still it starts, idles but does not rev up when you press the accelerator?

We do not have this model in US, but I assume it is a new model 2016-17. You throttle (and the "rev" ) is controlled by the computer. The fact that your car is idles - should mean that your computer is fine! There are two types of idle control: 1st- when you have a bypass of the throttle, which lets the throttle flop stay close while idling and let's the air into the motor through a bypass and electronically controlled idle switch. Inspect your throttle - the electronic/metal unit located on the large pipe through which the air gets into the motor: if you have a "bypass" for the air then you need to inspect your throttle body as it could be your problem.
2. most likely you do not have a bypass and your idle is controlled by your throttle body, then it is sure working fine and your only issue is that your engine computer does not know that you press the accelerator. Your gas pedal has an electrical unit on it which connects to the engine computer- inspect the connector/wires if all looks fine most likely your accelerator sensor does not work- you need to change the gas pedal unit ( I think it called accelerator sensor).
Good luck.

Open the hood.

Always remove the negative (-) cable first, then the positive (+). Then unscrew the battery mounting hardware and lift out.

My 2004 Explorer will not accelerate, only idles. Disconnected the battery to clean the terminals. Charged the battery on 6amps High for two hours. Started fine but will not accelerate from idle.

verify the gas pedal cable is connected out at the throttle body,you will need to remove the plastic cover that covers the linkage on the throttle body.
