Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, please explain the condition a little more. After starting it does the engine fast idle at about 1500 rpm?Does the engine die when putting it in gear?Does the check engine light stay on?
when i start and put car indrive the revs dont change.when temp. gauge reaches half ,would hear a slight drop in revs and car will drive normal from there.no check engine.
this problem only happens when car is cold
Thank you for the reply, if the check engine light does not stay on then you may be able to solve this problem by cleaning the inside of the throttle body, over time the throttle body can develop a lot of carbon to build up which interrupts air flow and causes idle speed problems. The throttle body can be cleaned by removing the intake tube from it and then cleaning the inside using a can of spray intake cleaner and a brush, the battery should be disconnected while doing this, after cleaning the battery is reconnected and the car driven for about 20 minutes , this should restore idle to the factory settings.
the probem i am getting is transmission wise.when the car starts cold i could put it in reverse and it would move back,but if i put it drive,2or 1 the car will not move until temp. guage reaches normal
i was wondering if a servo in transmission worn or sticking
If there was a solenoid problem or electronic control problem the check engine light would be on and there would be a code in the computer. How many miles/KM are on the odometer? Even though it may not be an electronci control problem there could still be a mechanical transmission problem. Have you checked the condition and the level of the transmission fluid
