It sounds like a classic case of an idle speed control motor sticking. If this problem happens when it is cold then does not do it until it sits and gets cold again this is probably the problem. The idle speed control motor is bolted to the bottom of the throttle body. Pay attention that throttle body needs to be removed to get it off.

Hope helps.

Pier_j Judging from what you have discribed. It would look at the fuel supply first . It sounds like its running out of gas check the fuel filter and then the pump for ampale out put you can but the line in a plastic bottle before the filter after its removed you should get 3 to 4 ounces of gas in about 5 seconds with key on. If it was a sensor problem you would have check engine on this is an OBD2 system so even if you don't have a reader you could take it to an auto parts store and they would read it for free . I know this must be frustreating but you need 3 things for the engine to run at all AIR INTAKE FUEL FROM THE PUMP AND SPARK AT THE PLUG TO FIRE IT I t sounds like you have most of it if you have no codes or lights on the dask check the fuel you might get out of this for under 10 dollars don't stsrt blindly replaceing sensors . Use a logical approch good luck with it

If you have not run the fault codes then that would be a good place to start. It will save you money as it will pinpoint the failing sensor.

Engine iddle speed need adjusting


You cant adjust it. Your car has a tps sensor " throttle position sensor " and a iac idle air control. these are both on the throttle body. is the check engine light on? The best way to check them is on a scanner at places like auto zone they will let you use one for free. and will help you do it. first check the codes if any then look at live data scroll down till you see tps and look at its values rev the motor up and it should change values are 0% to 100% no throttle to full throttle. at idle it should be 18 to 26 or so. if it doesnt change or its at a high number and no gas is being given then its bad. also look at the iac and see if it changes as well. you can also google the resistence values for each and ohm them out. It does sound like a bad tps. try that first , and the tps is easy to change

Idle too low on hot starts 2001 Avalon


Sounds like you idle air control valve is going bad. They start acting up on a hot engine due to sticking or high resistance through its internal windings. It will get to the point where the engine will stall every time you take your foot off the gas.
I suggest getting it replaced and the throttle body cleaned at the same time since it will need to be removed to replace the IAC.
