    I had replaced the MAF sensor and the exhaust sensors...made no difference. Checked the ABS sensors....these had some oil on them...cleaned, still no difference.
    The only time I made it worse was to clean the MAF sensor and not let it dry correctly.
    I would like to see what Toyota did on your last service..maybe a clue to the 'apparent' problem.
    I changed my driving by pushing in the clutch when slowing down and stopping on the brakes only.
    The regional manager looked at my car and the result from their tests was that there was nothing wrong...left it at that, could not go any further.
    I do have a spare MAF sensor and exhaust sensors if you would like to try them.

      Some other things to ponder...
      The high idle is the same as the cold idle. (have changed the thermostat)
      The high idle occurts when the vehicle is travelling at 40 kmh or more.
      The high idle does not occur when the inlet air temperature is above 35 degrees.

      A question..did this occur after fitting a snorkel?

        Not sure Jon why the snorkel would make any difference ??? Its only sucking air from windscreen level instead of above the inner plastic guard. I havnt heard of any one else that's fitted a snorkel to their petrol 120 have any issues. You had no issues prior to getting the work done so they have changed or done some thing. Again I don't see the snorkel causing the problem as heaps of other people running snorkels havn't reported the issue. So you ended up selling it eh ??? You have done what I would have done ages ago lol.......Cheers Steve

          I only sold the Prado as it was nearly 5 years old. I normally only keep a vehicle for that long.
          As the data from my car was sent to Japan and found to be ok, I went no further, just lived with it.
          The snorkel may make a difference or may not, just that the MAF sensor might be reading a change, just a thought.
          Also, what was done to your Prado prior to the problem occuring?

            Sorry to drag up an old thread, but ive had the same problem with my 120 Petrol since Ive owned it and its driven me mad trying to find a fix, if there is any. Mine's an Auto, and my main complaint is that it doesn't slow down much when you release the accelerator pedal, which means that she must use the brake a lot more than should be neccessary. Added to this I consistantly get higher fuel consumption that most othes, and I think this symptom is probably related. Ive done a small test by driving the car at around 60km/h and slipping it into neutral and Ive found that the rpm doesnt drop below 1200-1300 rpm until the car gets to about 5km/h then it suddenly drops to its idle speed of 750rpm. I was just wondering if Im chasing a fault thats not there. Would there be any other Prado owners here that could confirm if theirs does the same?

              Toyota can't /won't fix this 'problem'.
              I have sold mine....
              My fuel consumption is now much better.

                vlbaby I just tried this tonight on mine and does the exact same thing. Till I get to just about a stop then it drops down. Now my fuel consumption is not over the top so I would say this is common and not a fault. My mate also has a VX V6 Im going to get him to try it on his next time he's out in it. I would say its normal. Mine wont run along at 40k with no throttle imput as the first post. Yes if I take my foot off the brake it will obviously start to roll forward but not speed up to 40k... Id say you have nothing to worry about. I will confirm again when my mate tries his out as well.....Cheers Steve

                  This shows the benefit of having a scan-guage fitted. You will see zeros across the screen on the LPK data (fuel consumption) when the throttle is released.

                    • I bought a scan guage to try and diagnose the problem.
                      All seemed ok, no error codes shown, did reset, etc.. Still the same.
                      I think the only way to try and diagnose this would be to put the vehicle on a Dyno and then see what the throttle body is doing.
                      As the throttle body was replaced on my vehicle, I think there is an input to the ECU that is holding the idle high. Note that even the rear demister has an input to the engine ECU when turned on. Also note that the high idle is the same as the cold idle speed.
                      I was able to make the problem worse when I cleaned the MAF sensor and didn't let it dry properly. A new MAF did not fix the problem.

                      • Just did a service and noticed little rough at idle. Went for a drive and all seemed OK then engine light and few others came on.
                        Everything checked out and then put TORQUE on to see any codes - Had P0171 System too Lean (Bank 1) and P0174 System too Lean (Bank 2).
                        Cleaned MAF sensor after reading here and reset codes. All seemed OK and lights did not come back on although just a little surging when idling...... I was starting to think ECU
                        Read through these again and then checked vacuum lines - noticed one had come off (no idea how) as they don't have hose clips. Once line restored - perfect
                        Nearly spent $350 on a new MAF, so grateful for the good advice
                        cheers
