1997 Toyota Avalon Question: Why does my idle up and hesitates ?



streety14, 3.0L V6, Lexington, KY, March 04, 2014, 08:04

When you start the car, it idles very high at 2,2 rpm. When you take off it hesitates. Why does this happens?

    I agree check intake manifold for leak. Let car idle then spray carb cleaner where intake meets cylinder head and around any vacuum hoses if idle changes you found leak.
