    Hi guys... im new to the forum... i just bought a 03 tacoma 2.4liter with 180k... the car runs pretty good... but what happen is that my idle seems to be a bit high than regular cars.... when i put the car to P or N my engine runs pretty loud... i dont have a rpm gauge in my dash board... but i dont think the idling is normal.... also, when i release my brake when im on D gear, my car will go like 17mph... so this makes me wonder that my idling is not right... are there any ways to fix my idle? I already checked my throttle body, it's not the cable that's pulling it too hard....any help will be appreciated... thanks

    I'll have to look it up but I had the same problem and it ended up being an idle position sensor (or something like that).

    Someone who knows what they're talking about (read: not me) will probably know what part I'm trying to think of. If not, I'll dig through the maintenance records and tell you.

    ^ I think you mean Idle Air Control Valve.;) Although not completely sure what it could be. Id just clean out your throttle body/idle air control valve/maf sensor/seafoam and see if it helps. But Idk..:confused:

    Pretty sure it was a throttle position switch (or something like that)

    First thing we did was make sure the throttle body was clean. It was. Then we found that it was the throttle position switch (or whatever it's called)
