Canada Corolla High Idle.

Hey!

I have a 2005 Corolla XRS that is idling at around 1,500 to 2,500 RPM.
It doesnt matter if I put it neutral or sit in first gear. The only time it really idles normally is when i rev it around 5 or 6k then it seems to settle down... until i come to other stop. My mechanic has cleaned the throttle body and also tried resetting the idle to no luck.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Are you sure you can set the idle on these engines?

im not sure about anything. but he said he tried to reset the ECU. my mechanic told me that it should idle under 1000rpm. it seems like something is getting stuck because like i said when i rev over 5 or 6k it idles fine and drops around 1000rpm.

When it is cold out (less than 32F) my car will idle pretty high. When it is below zero I don't even need to use the gas pedal to get to work!

All toyotas that I have ever driven have idled 2000-2500 during warmup, once the engine gets to running temp it usually drops down do 500-1000 depending if its an auto or manual.

Looks like the XRS didn't fall far from it's daddy the GTS, my car usually idles around the same when it's cold.
