1995 toyota 4runner 4x4 Idling high sometimes than idles real low too


rule 1 on all otto cycle gas engines.
idle is the last thing to work right.
on EFI , its under control at all times.
but if the engine runs bad, it goes out of control.
IS THE CHECK ENGINE warn, lamp glowing running, ????
yes, why not get the DTC codes, (flash error codes now)
when it runs bad, is it misfiring, and shaking engine, weak power from engine,, bogging, or only stalling.
low rpm is near stall and is same thing.
1500rpm is perfectly normal for any cold engine.
Hot , its not.
first off check all fuses.
The idle controls are called ISC, "idle speed controller"
its a slave valve and ECU logic and servo controls.
the ECU works overtime , keeping idle right.
if the ISC sticks, it fails.
if the EGR sticks open , the ISC loses control
if the you get intake (induction) air leaks it loses control
same for misfire, gross, flooding. same for gross lean.
so how do we do this? find a cause.\
easy we give that long missed 60,000 mile tune up.
and during that i clean the ISC and EGR main valves.
on any old car like this, wow, its sure to be a mess, if not serviced.

then make sure the EGR main is closed,
engine hot.
i see if my ISC is trying to work.
i then check my fuel mixtures. to see if the engine EFI
reaches and holds closed loop.
oops, it cant be cause the 0xygen sensor died, 100k miles ago.
its dead.
no OTC scan tools for 1995 ( sure hackers have em)
so is very hard to get this information, i use a scope to watch my oxy sensor, if stuck rich i fix that first. if stuck lean , i find the exhaust crank causing it. or other cause... long list of tests.

in a real shop the start at the tail pipe end, OMG this puppy is rich as a pig and work forward, is start at the oxysensor
i get it working by any means.,
then fix idle if not already magically working. as most do (cleaned)

here is a very common example.
1: EGR sticks open at idle. IDLE RPM drops like rock. ( it must)
2: ECU sees illegal RPM and opens the ISC fully, to no avail.
some cars EFI hunts the ISC causing surging.
others ECU just slams the ISC wide open and does a software hope thing. in this case, does nothing,due to gross EGR misfire effects.
the idle controls are a SERVO,. a closed loop servo system.
it regulates idle until , something horrible happens.

it fails when conditions are outside it's range of Authority.

'01 Nissan Sentra stalling when stopped - shop has had it 5 months: help!


If the idle air control valve is working, the passage may be clogged. Other things to check are the PCV flow and possible vacuum leaks.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r7427423-fix_poor_idle_high_idle_stalling_fuel . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with engine size info.

I have a problem with my Suzuki idling too low when in gear 500 rpm--1000 in park, then dying when in gear and at a stop--It does this sometimes and then stops for a week. It will run fine for a while and...


induction clean,(that means intake manifold clean inside)sometimes that area throttle body, and intake manifold get contaminated , and make that problems (low idle) . take it to you mecanic and ask for; throttle and intake manifold service. on the ignition switch spray some w40 in where the key goes.. ( if you want to do the clean service yourself go get intake manifold cleaner at the autoparts and follow the instructions (how to apply it).

I have a 1990 olds 88 royale 3.8 Just replaced the fuel pump, and both fuel filter. A week later coming to a stop the car dies. It's seems every time I approach a stop and get under 25 mph it dies....


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Idle Problem when you slow down of come to a stop idle goes low


THis has happened to me in the past. My fix was to clean the throttle body. The problem began after my battery died. The computer was defaulted back to its original settings after replacing the battery. Once I cleaned the throttle body, everything was fine. This happened at about 85,000 miles.
