Question about 2006 Scion xB

1 Answer

Xb stalling My wife just called to tell me that our xb is stalling out whenever she takes her foot off the gas. A friend of mine says it sounds like the TPS is going out. Is there anything else that would cause this or is it a simple sensor replacement? If its just the sensor, how do you replace it?

It turned out that my wife drove through some standing water. I suspect some water got into our open air intake and was causing the stall. With enough revs, we blew it out.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?


I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

When idling, the engine rattles

Don't believe everything you hear! Too many Xperts out there! Ok, here's the deal. I have a Scion 2005 xb and a 2006 xb. To set up the idle, just look near the front of your engine close to the radiator fan. As you are facing the car with the hood up, near the right side of the engine, you should see the thin metal wire that gives your car gas when you depress the gas pedal. Have someone press the gas pedal quickly and you will see it move(even if the engine is off). Don't let them hold it down! Just a quick press/release or two. (You can also do this yourself if necessary, by pushing the small plastic wheel the cable rides on). Ok, after you locate the wire and the round plastic piece, locate the small nut that has a small "allen wrench" type screw in the center of it. You may see a small dot of yellow paint from the factory which shows the original location of the screw. FIRST, with a 5/16 or (equivalent millimeter) wrench, loosen the nut only slightly. SECOND, with a very small #2 size allen wrench, slightly TIGHTEN the screw until the rough idle smooths out(about 10 or 11 rpm's on the gauge inside on your odometer). DONE! Takes about 5 minutes and saves $$$ and time at the dealer!
You should have someone running the car to do this...BUT for safety reasons, be very careful not to get your hands near the fan which WILL PROBABLY COME ON!!!! And don't let someone depress and release the gas pedal while your hands are near the wire! You only need to tighten the allen screw about a half turn. After adjusting, give a quick depress of the gas pedal again to make sure it adjusts properly and seats. Remember, the higher you set the idle, the more gas you use and the quicker you overheat. So, set it at the very minimum that takes out the roughness(between 9 & 10 rpm's is ideal). Good luck, Ricko, New Smyrna Beach, FL

Noise while turning


no clicking what so ever i asked a friend of mine who used to be a mechanic and he said that it could possibly be the dust sheild on the brake caliper rubbing, there is no clicking sound. It makes a sound like the rotor is bumping into something when you turn. if i turn only a little there is little or no noise and it gets worse/louder the more u turn in that direction.
