1992 (4 cylinder) Camry ECT Sensor Check.
OK. There's always posts about people having their Camry's idle weird,
stall, have to rev super high to keep the engine running, won't start after
driving it for a while, etc...
Most people that post replies, suggest cleaning out the IAC, check for a
cracked distributor coil, check plugs and wires, the list goes on and on.
One of the easiest things to check/rule out, is one of the most common
problems, and doesn't require any tools, doesn't require disassembling
anything. It's simply disconnecting a sensor, driving the car to see if the
problem is resolved. Reconnecting it, if it isn't the problem. Then go on
to more involved trouble shooting.
1 - Make sure the car is cold.
2 - Start the car. (if you can)
3 - If it won't start, or starts and then stalls, proceed to step 6.
4 - If it starts, let it idle till it gets up to normal operating
temperature. (temp gauge should read in between 1/3 and 1/2).
5 - If it stalls (want's to stall) and won't start again, proceed to step 6
6 - Locate your ECT sensor in your engine bay, and dis-connect it. (Green
harness plug on the I4's, Grey on the V6's).
7 - Try to start the car again.
8 - If the car starts and runs normally, replace the ECT sensor.
9 - If the car still idle's weird, or stalls, then start looking at the
more complex diags. Clogged IAC, stuck EGR, etc...

Saturn Idle problem.mov
In this video we show you how to replace an idle air control solenoid and
clean the throttle body on a 1996 Saturn. This car was having a
excessively high idle. It would stay at 1500 RPM even though your foot was
not on the gas pedal. This was caused by carbon build up around and behind
the throttle body as well as a defective idle air control solenoid.
