After putting a new battery in my 2006 Toyota Corolla S, the idle/engine seems too high. Is this normal?

Asked by Nov 26, 2012 at 01:41 PM about the 2006 Toyota Corolla S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Immediately after putting a new battery in my 2006 Toyota Corolla S, I notice that the car seems to vibrate. I'm guessing that the idle/engine is vibrating at too high of a speed. Should I be concerned about this? If you know what i should do, please help.

What I do know is that when you put a new battery in your Corolla, there is nothing that needs to be re-programmed, only the clock. A new battery and good to go, so it's not that. But yes, a vibration is not normal, and should be checked.

A new battery put out more power than an old one so your idle is going to be a little high
