Hi, I have corolla 1999 1zfe engine 1.8l 3 speed automatic transmission. In low idle have that sucking noise in the air box( filter box).I trace that noise and get to the hole in the throttle body, if I cover little bit that hole the noise is gone.I took apart that ISC valve control clean it put it back but still the same. My car have 109 000 miles and like to eat oil, I just want to know if that problem is not oil consumption related. Is that ISC got bad?I've changed PCV valve as well but no improvement. Thanks

There should be no hole in the TB, make sure the tube to TB is connected properly.

"the hole" is the air entrance to ISC valve is in the tb. This is passage to manifold intake when tb is close. In the ISC is valve, that valve is vibrating when connect . All the air cables are tide.I changed MAP sensor but nothing help.

The IAC (idle air control) valve controls idle by bypassing air through the hole to the intake.

There is a sensor in the air box call IAT (incoming air temp), check that it is seated properly.

I've check that is also Ok.I monitor other day engine work and that sensor show outside temperature so is OK I guess. Also I notice my load calc is like 30% on idling, toyota spec 11.3 to 20.0 %
could be ECM problem?Which sensor is used to calculate signal to IAC?
Thanks

30% load at idle would add additional fuel to engine. Did you replace IAC?

You may want to take to Toyota or trusted garage and get a diagnosis, 110K miles is considered low for a Toyota.

Having said that, if you have a serious problem, then you may be right about trading.
