    Default Corolla Gli 2007 - Maintenance Required

    AOA!

    I have a corolla gli 2007 and recently it has developed a problem that whenever i push down the clutch the rpms drop so drastically that the engine dies almost immediately both on petrol and CNG.
    Please guide me where can i find a good/honest mechanic?
    And what about Toyota 3S dealerships? Although i've heard they charge hell lot of money but its worth the risk...if its true then how much do they cost?

    It sounds like a typical throttle body issue. The idle control solenoid may be malfunctioning, and the best thing to do for you would be to get the whole throttle body replaced with an unaltered kabli one.

    Mechanics here normally try to 'adjust' the idle by maneuvering the idle control solenoid. However, it is non adjustable to begin with and therefore once it is opened, it becomes really difficult to adjust it back to the exact factory specs again.

    So instead of struggling with unrelated things, just replace the whole throttle body. Before you buy one though, make sure the khan promises to replace the throttle body if it doesn't work perfectly, since these are used parts and normally very dirty, chances are that you may have to try on a couple before you hit gold.

    Remember! The key here is to get a throttle body in which no screws have ever been opened. And if you get tempted to get it serviced before installation make sure the ic valve/solenoid is not touched because it will again bring you back to square one.

    I'd like to believe that professionalism comes from knowledge and experience and not from big fancy sign boards. You will find the most unprofessional people at the most sophisticated places.

    I had an Altis 2005 which developed a similar problem at 40k km. In the quest of professionalism I rushed to the 3s dealership, and that was the worst choice I could have made. They fiddled with the system pathetically and sent me home. I returned with worse idling problem a day later, and they fiddled some more with no solution at all. In short, after 4 of such trips I decided to go elsewhere.
    Got the throttle body changed from ihata mithu khan, and the problem never came back.

    My disclaimer here is that it was my personal experience and I have shared it with you with the hope that you would benefit from it. However if you feel comfortable with 3s only, you might just try your luck with them. Maybe it works for you!

    I think a simple throttle body service might solve the idle issue. Lets not jump to straight away replacing the throttle body. First get it serviced.
    None of the brave deserve fair....

    so, after my experience with all the mechanics including 3S dealers is that they all apply hit and trial method. got for the service as mentioned by several members.
