You need the transmission tested for fault codes, it is computer shifted, if all checks ok with the control system then you have a failing transmission that will need to be rebuilt.

    Do the testing before you do anything else, many transmission repair shops will do it for free.

My 1996 camry engine revs to about 2K rpm when sitting still and then goes back down to about 750 rpms and sometimes the engine just dies. Normally runs great. does not do it all the time


have your IAC valve checked, this is located at the throttle body, Possibly dirty and may be sticking. Replace if necessary!! Hopefully this helps!!

hi there
sounds like you need a tune up or you need your injectors cleaned
so i will help you clean them with out getting your hands dirty but you need to follow me every step of the way.
first i will give you my tips
  1. get a high quality fuel injector cleaner that you put into your fuel tank
  2. make Shaw you have just under a full tank of fuel
  3. while i never say that one should drive a car like it is a toy you are going to have to do some harsh exhilarating during this
  4. 1000rpm is 1 revs on your dash bored so if i say do 2500rpm it means do 2.5 on your dash (that's only if you dot know what rpm means)
  5. never turn the car off while we do this
  6. please do not speed you put your life and others at risk
  7. please do not drink and drive
OK now for the step by step instructions
  1. have what you need ready to go including the injector cleaner
  2. start your car and let it warm up keep the revs just over 1000 rpm
  3. as the car is running add the fuel injector cleaner
  4. when you have done this i want you to increase the revs to about 2000rpm
  5. keep it like this for about 30 seconds
  6. after the revs are back down to 1000 rpm i want you to get ready to take it for a drive
  7. OK so take it for a light drive around your street keep it very close to home as if your car stops you don't want to have to walk a long way
  8. once you have done this for a while and you feal confident i want you to be a bit quicker in exelarating giving a bit more power remember dont speed
  9. now once you have done this i want you to take her home and let it idle for a bit
    cause you need to get ready to go for a long drive
  10. now that you have got to the bathroom and are ready to go i want you to find a nice open road where you can do 60mph
  11. now that you are here i want you to act like ther is a road train in front of you doing 50mph
  12. now i want you to overtake this road train applying full power by pressing fully dont on the gas
  13. once over tiaken slow back down
  14. i want you to do steps 11 to 13 twice at least
  15. now go back home and let me know how it went
now something to remember for alwase
  1. as stated i dont think you should race or rev the motor all the time to high once a month give it a good run this will loosen and clean all the rubbish from the motor and everythink will run freeley like it should
  2. dont drink and drive
  3. dont speed
  4. saty safe on the roads you life is to valued
  5. and let me know all progress as i want to know if it helped as i pout in a lot of time and effort to helping people on this site
stay safe and happy new year

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
