Good Evening Mike V, This Past...
Good Evening Mike V,
This Past December you helped me diagnose why my Lexus wouldn't start and thankfully it was identified that a ground wire was the issue. However the car still has issues and the most concerning at the moment would be the way that it idles. I've attached a video of the weird Idle and the dismay of vacuum lines.
Also apologies for the upside down video.

H​ello I have repaired over 30000 vehicles in my career and I need to ask you questions since I am not there in person to gather facts, data, or to test your vehicle. I may ask you to perform testing in my stead. If testing is needed and you would rather not perform testing I can give my best advice.

Thank you for the response, I actually swapped engines in this car and, and made a mess of the vacuum lines. I also replaced the lower intake manifold gaskets, and now it idles very strangely. Where it turns over and rev's a little without me pressing on the accelerator then does. I'll attach a video of that. And here's the vin; JT8CH32Y0X1002246

I have alot of tools at my disposal, but little mechanical experience, so anything you'd like to try to do in order to get this car running, is possible. Thank you again.

Thank you for the reply, how would I get a reading for the fuel trims?
-Thanks
Lexus Mechanic: eric remington,
 replied 18 days ago

Y​our scanner or code reader may not have the capability to read data. If I had the fuel trims I could know whether or not you have issues with fuel trims . Have you repaired vacuum leaks yet?c

I haven't repaired the vacuum leaks yet, which should I attempt first the vacuum leaks or letting it run and scanning it?
Lexus Mechanic: eric remington,
 replied 17 days ago

i​f you have a scanner capable of reading data then you can get fuel trims which i need. Your fuel trims will be off if you have vacuum leaks. vacuum leaks must be fixed
