1992 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Hi, i ´m new here and I hope to find a solution for my car.

The car always stays at 2k or 3k, i ´ve checked the throttle and is ok. The air filter is ok too. The choke sometimes is activated even when the car is warm. I ´ve turned in a screw with a spring behind the carburetor and gets better a little.

I dont know what to do.

Thanks.

P.S. Sorry for my english, I speak spanish.

What do you have here a Carb or and EFI?

If its a carb the fast idle cam needs re-adjusting and if its EFI check the idle air control valve and the throttle position sensor and look for vacuum leaks

No Corolla made in the U.S. Came with a carb in 1992. They were all FI.

While the idle can be adjusted on the throttle body, an idle that high is a vacuum leak.

To identify a U.S. Built Corolla, look on inside of open door, where it contacts striker bolt. It will have a sticker that says NUMMI on it.

This Corolla was made in venezuela and comes with carb. I have seen another carbs like mikunis, keihin, etc, but this carb is very complicated.

Hey Rasmataz, when you say CAM NEEDS READJUSTING, do you refer to adjust the Cams timing?

Negative-its the fast idle cam adjustment on the Carb to raise the idle during initial cold starts. Choke plate could be sticking partially closed and raising the idle
