16valves VVT-I choke problems

Recommended Posts

When starting the engine in the morning, the RPMs go up to 2000 and oscillate between 1000 and 2000 for a while. A local mechanic was not able to fix this... Any idea?

thanks!

On a cold start it will rev close to 2000rpm and gradually fall as coolant temperature rises.  It settles to around 750rpm on a hot engine but will increase rpm somewhat if the A/C or a large electrical load is switched on.

If the rpm fluctuate wildly then clean the Idle Air Control Valve.  Sustained unstable/fast idling can be caused by a leaking inlet manifold gasket. Very easy to replace.  There is an upgraded gasket available from Toyota.

This is normal happens everyday, should go down after a few minutes. I know it is a little noisy but you get used to it.

  • 218 Hybrid Reliability

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
