If its just when its idling I would say your right,toyotas our notorious for the IAC valves going out. I had one that was hard to start and would not idle, cleaned IAC and fixed it. You can go to any parts store and get the codes read to figure out the check engine light issue.

Idle speed is really high when started or too low


If this is for your Mighty Max truck, the problem could be the idle air control valve. The computer controls the idle speed by regulating how much air enters the throttle body thru the valve.

High idle after engine is warm. nothing is sticking with linkage.1992 chev k1500 5.7


Make sure the idle screw was not turnned causeing tps sensor to read over the spec limit, the next then is to make sure the idle air control valve is working , a bad valve will cause this problem and last is the stepper motor that controls the idle. some of these around this year used steeper idle control motors instead of idle air control valves and in turn the stepper motor is bad it will hold the throtle plate open to much causing the tps reading to be wrong triggering the engine light to come on. the steeper motor will be boltted to side of the throtlebody and theres a small arm to the throtle linkage. i will enclose a stepper motor picture and an idle air valve to show you, but this sounds like the tps is out of range due to this. the last thing is to make sure there are no vacuum leaks, spray crab cleaner around throtlebody base gasket and also the intake mounting gasket and see if the idle changes is so theres a vac leak in that area. good day. okay just did a little research and this truck does have a idle air control valve, the picture is encolsed and is screwed into throtlebody, check that and for vacuum leaks, make sure tps is good sometime it will test good when testing and go bad when it wants, you could have a bad tps and idle air control valve also.11_27_2011_9_27_54_pm.jpg

Have an automatic transmission, 2001 Kio Rio. Problems when idling, sometimes high, sometimes low and will stall but starts right back up. I've replaced the Mass Air Sensor, spark plugs, air filter, coil....


It sounds to me like you have replaced everything except the most likely cause of your idle control problem...The Idle Air control. (IAC) (or Idle Speed Control Valve) It is located onthe throttle body and looks like the picture below.

99 mercury sable automatic trans vehicle idles very low randomly even stalls out sometimes high idle occurs as well reaches about 4000 rpm at times. engine light threw 4 codes, all to do with o2 sensors...


Sounds like a broken or torn vacum hose, pcv valve clogged, or bad Idle air control motor. Did you spray carb cleaner on vacum hoses or near the plastic intake., and did the motor rev up or down? Those codes represent a lean condition which means most like a vacum leak or clogged idle air motor. Sometimes the intake manifolds crack or the intake manifold gaskets crack. FInd that vacum leak or inpect iac motor

93 4.3 astro starts then stalls. Once It starts and stalls a few times it will run well. It will stall randomely while driving maybe once every 5 miles. I had the check engine go on only once and the code...


you have a device that controls your idle speed called the idle air control valve. When it gets gummed up your engine may stall. However, the problem sounds more like the fuel pump, it's relay, or its ground. The ground is located on the left frame rail at the rear of the van. sometimes corrosion will cause a bad ground. You have many other sensor that can be bad, or connections to. when you say stall do you mean it will cut off while driving down the road or only when you let off the gas pedal to idle?

97 Camry Rough cold idle, weak accelleration and noisy exhaust


Lots of times the idle air control valve gets stuck on these engines. You can try cleaning it. Remove the air intake hose from the throttle body. Start the engine and spray throttle plate cleaner through the hole in the bottom on the throttle body. This will run the cleaner through the idle air control valve. make sure to keep the RPM's at about 2000 to 2500 throughout this procedure. You may need to install a new idle air control valve if it continues to happen.

Changed mass air sensor still stalling 1997 nissan pathfinder


As a factory Nissan trained Technician with dealership experience - it can be many things, but it sounds alot like a mis-adjusted or faulty TPS, and/or a faulty IAC(Idle air control) valve - I'd try the TPS and set to appx. .50 vdc (.47/.49) Volts DC and if that isn't it, I'd definitely look to the idle air control valve ( allows for air bypass - sometimes called bypass air control valve). May then need base timing and idle set at shop with OBDII ignition disabling option, for seting timing and idle, otherwise computer won't allow proper setting...then if connector to IAC is OK - should be just fine...
