Don't think there's anything wrong with it. That's pretty normal for mine. If it's unusual behaviour for your car, check your coolant level. I almost ran mine dry last year and found in the days leading up to it that my idle revs were sitting around 2000 once the car heated up. If it turns out to be that I can give you some real handy tips for changing your coolant and flushing all the junk out. Much cheaper than a mechanic and good if you have a spare hour.

The throttle position sensor has an idle switch in it that tells the car's computer that the throttle is positioned at idle. If the idle switch sticks in the idle position, the computer will not allow the engine to rev more than 2500 rpm. In your case, I think the switch is stuck.

First, see if you can get the trouble codes to come up. Rig a jumper wire and jump between the "T" terminal and the "E1" terminal in the car's "Diagnostics" box. It is a small black box on the driver's side of the engine compartment near the battery. Open the lid and on the inside of the lid it has a map of the terminals.

Once you hook up the jumper wire, turn the ignition switch to on but do not start the car. If there are codes, the check engine light (orange) will blink the 2 digit code. It blinks the first digit, pauses, then blinks the second digit. The code for the throttle position sensor is code "41". That is, four blinks...pause...then one blink. If this code comes up, change the throttle position sensor. (If there are no codes, the check engine light will steadily blink once per second until you turn the key to off.) Don't forget to remove the jumper wire when you are finished.

03 corolla petrol revs up on its own when idling and then settles down again


R u start the car in cold morning or any cold condition? If so, it is normal revs up itself. Sometimes I see some cars revs up to 2000 rpm for 2 to 5 mins, then drop down to 1000 rpm.

Hi, I have a 1999 Chico/Citi Golf. The revs stay above 1000 and do not want to drop, I do not even have to pull the choke out. How do I get my revs to drop back to 1000? It use to Idle just below 1000,...


Check that the choke accelerated idle cam is not stuck. Check that the throttle cable has not dislodged and the outer casing is riding on the bracket. Check that the throttle linkages are free and the throttle returns to the idle adjustment stop. If all these are correct, adjust the idle adjustment to obtain the correct idle speed. 700 - 800 rpm is about the right speed.

Automatic choke stopped working- difficulty start- revs dropping low at stop


Quick and easy attempt to fix might be to try some fuel injector cleaner,the purple bottle stuff I put in, is only about $3 a bottle, and seems to eliminate similiar symptoms brought on by bad gas.
