This is an intermittent problem, happens every couple months. After cold start and 10 minutes of warm up, at a stop, engine cuts off and idle can not be sustained. Restarting is difficult and requires stepping on gas pedal. During this time engine runs rough and cannot be kept alive at all. After waiting for 10 minutes or so with engine off, engine comes back to normal.
Toyota dealer could not diagnose the problem, their computer does not detect anything. Of course by the time we take the car to the dealer, this effect is over! Dealer has replaced the Idle Control Valve, but this did not fix the issue.
have the same problem?
