hey how are you

1- you have a check engine light on , so if you have an advance auto or auto zone ,they will scan the car and give the fault codes so we know what is the check engine light on for , mos likely for high idle ,but it will give us a code # to go by .

2- The idle air control valve is a common issue on the rav 4 , for high idle ,but we need check first to confirm

Please let me know

Thank You
