Camry 2006 - idle too low


Recommended Posts


my recently bought Camry XV40 2006, 2.4l, idles very low at around 500rpm. (When its cold, its above 1000rpm.)

It also shows me the engine check light in the dash.

It drives normal.

Any idea what could be the problem?

Only real solution is to get an OBD scan performed so the fault codes can be read to identify the solution. This is best done by your Toyota dealer for most accurate results.

Suggest that you check/clean the air filter, throttle body, idle control valve and maybe also the MAF mass airflow sensor. If you have not already done so, add some fuel injector cleaner to the petrol tank. Do that then drive for a week or 2 then reset the engine check light by disconnecting the battery for a minute or so. If the engine check light reappears then go and have an OBD scan done.
