After 100k Maintenance - engine light is ON
My Camry 2000 LE and miles on it is 100k . recently changes spark plugs wires ,
radiator flush, air filter change and throttle body clean.
can ran like dream 1000 miles and suddenly engine light came up and i noticed .
when i start the car in the morning RMP is between 500-600 and if put full A/C or Heat
RMP jumps to 800-900. there is no problem of car stopping at any signal.
some time if feel , I was sitting in hybrid.
changed GAS Cap but still Engine Light is ON.
there is nothing wrong with your car, you just forgot to reset the computer after making repairs. disconnect your battery leave it be for 30 minutes. then reconnect your battery and start your car let it run. the check engine light be gone after you do what i said here.
I would go to auto zone and have the codes read just in case you have other issues going on. They will do this for free. As far as your idle is concerned that sounds about normal. The idle air control valve idles your engine up when ac is on.
Thank you All. I had checked my car at Auto zone , these are the codes P0441, P0446 and P0440. I was told to replace GAS Cap. Engine Light is still ON past week. Should I reset the computer and see will it back ON or show to dealer. please guide

I had a 2002 Camry. Had to replace the gas tank years ago after a mishap (tuft of grass had a signpost in it). Engine light was on for years. Before inspection, I'd get it reset then drive 80 miles to pass inspection. Then the codes would not clear. I drove, reset, drove, retested. drove 600 miles, then got a waiver from the state and gave the car to my brother-in-law. He has gotten rid of it. A really major pain.
Morning i tried to reset the check engine my hold the odometer button. but engine light is still ON . I will try removing negative terminal of the battery and update you.
Had checked at local Mechanic - the estimation including labor ,parts and tax is around 750$. 2 days effort .
Hello Friends thank you for all your help and suggestions ... I have disconnected battery for 1 an hours and check engine off now. I put car in idling with full AC on to make sure is well... will update you soon....
is there any chances check engine light could come on later point of time ..
Yes if you still have an issue it will come back on. Might not be right away but it will in the next couple of days if there is still a problem.
E-vap all your codes evap. get a cigar and light it and puff smoke in vacuum line. when you see smoke come out of leaky hose under car . seal it up with glue or anything you want to. just seal the broken evap line
get a good cigar like Havana ,makes doing repairs a pleasure !
Hi Friends .. My Camry 2000 is running like dream after getting done recommended maintenance..soon after I saw all different codes P0XXX later fixed check engine disconnecting batter. now i see the RPM are back to 1000. the only concern is - I had press gas paddle to start unless car jerks on cold start. Any suggestions .
you have a vaccum leak, look for hoses that are not connected.
