You vehicle computer needs to relearn your engine. It will need to run a for a couple trips so the computer will adjust the timing to make it idle. Try starting it and giving it throttle to keep it running until it adjusts itself. Should get better after a couple small test drives.

When unhooking the battery turn key on all the way to run position and leave that way for about two hours and then turn off and remove key and hook up battery and start engine that procedure drains the backup battery in the computer and makes it relearn back to factory settings basicly reboots

Take for Normal drive - Then park it - Let it sit - Try starting again = If results Good great BUT if still Rough Idle you need to search for Tight / need to be Tightened connections ...Factory Relearn is Turn Key On but do not Start - Then disconnect Negative - Leave 2 ++ Hrs. - Return install Negative then Turn Key off and Remove it . Now Key on ++ Start == Hopefully Idle is smooth ... If not The 5 Times Key on - Key off done slowly must be done Too convince Passkey 2 anti theft Dterrent That Battery swap was not a stealing attempt .. welcome 2 computer %^$#@ thx 2 GM overpaid staff...

Starts dies


an alternator won't stall your car, the battery provides power to keep the spark going. It sounds like you could have some bad fuel, if you're able to run the throttle manually with your foot and keep it going that would indicate idle control. but if it stalls still when you are giving it gas. I would guess a fuel supply issue, either water in your gas, or fuel pump. Good Luck.

RX300 Engine Stalls when I take foot off the gas pedal.


The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve is clogged. This part feeds air to the engine at start-up and idle when the throttle bodies are closed. I removed the throttle body assembly from my 2001 RX300 and separated it from the IAC. After a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner the IAC was good as new. I later decided to replace it during routine maintenance. You can pick up a brand new IAC on eBay (genuine Lexus/Toyota part). The dealer will want upwards of $400.00 for a 45 minute job (all you need are basis hand tools).
