Rpm running high - 1997 Toyota 4Runner

Answers :

If its running high while in park and carborated then try adjusting the idle speed screw.
Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action try removing the throttle cable. Spray wd40 on the throttle cable to loosen the dirt. Put the throttle cable back and observe how it goes. If the problem still persist, I strongly suggest that you replace the MAF (mass air flow) sensor.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

A 2000 Cadillic Deville , the car is hard starting in cold weather, won't idle or it idles at a high RPM. When cold I sometimes need to stay in car so it will stay running at lease 5 min before it will idle on its own, or it will just run at a high idle 1100 to 1200 RPM with out droping. While running it will sometimes just stall while on the road, or it runs at a high idle. Now this is an issue that is becoming more an more frequent, but there is days that it runs fine. Im from the Northeast.

I have an automatic, toyota 4runner. The RPMs are high when driving normal (like 4) going 80+ kph (im in japan, hence the kph). I know this isn't normal. Sometimes, it will "shift" gears and go into upper speeds with a reduced rpm (3something). but sometimes the rpms stick no matter what speed im going and im concerned something is going on that has dollar signs attached to it.

Hello, My 1981 Toyota truck with 22R W/Carburetor intermittently stalls on idle speed; it is OK and runs on hwy speed but some time not all the time(especially when engine hot) when traffic slows or getting in to stop, it stalls and hesitates to start. I have to pump few times then it starts but I have to keep pressure on the pedal to keep rpm high and going.Then problem goes away as quick as it comes. It is very annoying. I have already replaced, distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs. And


The fault seems evident to be within the carburetor. I think you might have to start from the fuel tank to check if there are impurities present in the tank, if you see the fuel filter dirty or clogged with fine dirt.\ ... Toyota Pickup

I had the transmission flushed and transmission oil changed in it a little less than 10,000 miles ago. The temp problem just started yesterday and the OD problem has been a going on a while.

High RPMs I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 and recently the car won't shift into overdrive. I am running at over 3500 RPM at 40 MPH. When I turn my car off and restart sometimes this will stop the problem. When the car seems to be running normally I'm at 2750 RPM @ 70 miles an hour. Is this normal or is this still too high to be running the car at. All of this started when I was coming off a long trip and my check engine light came on. I took it to a Lexus dealership and the code read knock sensor but
