High and sporadic idle speed. I just cleaned the IAC valve, put everything back together and now my idle is wack? Any ideas what it might be?


Hello my name is autoteck21 sounds like you dealing with one of two things. #1 Either you have a vacuum leak in one of your hoses or your vacuum box at the worst case one of your vacuum control solenoid. #2 Your idle air control module (under your throttle body.)
To test #1 take a can of brake clean or carb/choke cleaner and in small 2-3in areas spray little spots while engine is running listen too your idle for any changes (you will here the differences) if so there's your leak.
To test #2 find the little connector (2 wire) under your throttle body (when standing in front of your car lower front side under intake pipe hose clamp)

We repair our Toyota Lucida automatic transmission because in runs on reverse only. Our problem now is that it will start to move forward only, once the engine RPM was between 1800 to 2000. Another thing,...


The problem concerning low gear locked up sounds like a bad primary shift solenoid (located on the valve body internally) the other issue with the forward gear only engaging with the rpm up to 1800 could be inadequate hydraulic pressure (a transmission front pump issue), most likely there is no problem with the pump if when shifting the selector lever into reverse it engages quickly and normally. This may be a transmission computer issue and I would recommend having the dealership do a diagnostic check on the transmission to eliminate the computer as a culprit. transmission problems are very difficult to figure out and before spending a lot of money get the electrical diagnostic done first.

I would begin by replacing the filter if its not new, 2 possibility of issue, faulty shifting module or defective transmission rebuilt. just because it has been rebuilt does not mean the individual work on it did a good job. the less cost effective way is to locate used modulator from ebay or junk yard, if that does not rectified the issue than more likely it will be the tranny. the bad part is that I dont know of a company offer a bench test for the tranny modulator.

This sounds like a valve body spool is hhanging up. It's that block you see bolted to the belly inside the trans. Check the vacuum modulator vacuum hose for vacuum or leakage.

Engine gets to a high RPM before it shifts


check all vacuum starting at the pump on these mpodels and see if you are getting around 29" of vacuum. if you are not this is your issue. it sounds like it is doing it mechanically and not assisted. this is a very good way to destroy your transmission. it is very possible that you have a leak somewhere else in the system causing a vacuum leak. i am guessing all your door locks do not work.email me at iambanshee74@yahoo.com
