when my celica is idling,it has this tone coming from not only the Intake but from the exhaust too.(hard to tell from the back cause my exhaust has a real heavy low growl)
it sounds like a hi pithced hooooooo and every now and then you would here the sssssssssss of the Intake along with an ocasional gulp (not often though)and it only idles constant when its fully warmed.

HYBRID:resulting from the combination of two or more mechanically dissimilar origins!

mine idles wierd until it gets warm...sometimes it'll idle as high as 1800 and then drop to 650 like its going to stall then jumps back to 1800 ...when it does this it makes gulps and gasps... my normal idle at warm is quiet and steady at about 900...i have CAI and exhaust...<hope this helps a little

unless it's at normal operating temperature, don't even look at the idle to diagnose a problem.

If you are at warm idle, and it's fluctuating clean your MAF sensor/thermistor, throttle plate and idle valve in there (IVP or IAP?) and get some new spark plugs.

That will even it right out thumbsup

o it's normal, that happens when you have a lotta air flow, i have full bolt-on Intake header exhaust, n yea everytime i shut off the engine it's like a human gasping for air, all my friends made that sound everytime they hear it, hehe..sounds pretty cool though

My car is stock and it sucks air when I hit the gas from idle. Instead of going vroooom when I hit the gas once, it goes vroom vroom. The first vroom sucks air then its varoooms normal. The dealer sait it was normal but I think its affecting my Performance. I've had soooooo much trouble with my car that sometimes I regret having it. But I love the Celi.
