Toyota Corolla Problems

Idle air control motors may become carboned up at 100,000 miles on Toyota Corolla

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The idle air control motors tend to become carboned up at around 100,000 miles and can cause a start and stall and/or stalling at stop sign problems. Our technicians tell us that many times these motors can be cleaned, however, the sure bet is to replace the idle air control motor and clean the throttle body.

Car would idle rough or stall when I stopped . I cleaned the throttle body while it was still on the engine, now it idles too high, around 2000-2400 rpm.
Engine rpms suddenly goes up to around 2200rpm for about a minute then back down to around 650rpm
