Re: idle problem

Cameo,

You posted this in the wrong section of the forums, so you might not get much help. Might want to try again in the section for your generation GC.

I can tell you, though, when this was happening with my MR2, it was caused by a faulty Intake Air Temperature sensor. You might want to go to the local Autozone and ask them to hook up the scanner and look for error codes.

Re: idle problem

Knackered IAC valve. May just need a damn good clean. I'd try that first before replacing it.
