On a 2009 Aura 2.4l auto transmission, I was having trouble

This answer was rated:

Hello, on a 2009 Aura 2.4l auto transmission, I was having trouble with engine performance specially taking off from a light. The vehicle hesitates to take off and had no much power. While inspecting the possibilities I found the throttle body extremely dirty, so I cleaned it. Now the vehicle has lots of power but won't idle. It stays around 3000rpms and dont want to go down. I've disconnected the battery and tried to relearn by driving it but no success. Could it be damaged? or some other way to relearn?

the vehicle is idling 750 rpms. as soon as I touch the accelerator pedal, it revs

Hi Im David, thanks foir visiting the site, get access to the throttle plate again. make sure its closing all of the way even if it looks like itt is, push on the top of the throttle plate to see if it fully closes.

It does. I can move it a little bit. It seems free

does it spring back a little when you push it fully closed or does it stay there?

did you remove the throttle body or did you clean it still installed?

Customer: replied 28 days ago.
it spring back a little.
I've found the sleeve that goes on top of the throttle body and intake hose with a crack on it

I've cleaned it istalled. key off

that crack will cause your high idle
