    Why is there difference in rpm between scanner tool and dashboard?
    When I plug in my scanner tool to my solara it shows me that the idle rpm is at 780 where it should be, but on my dashboard it is showing my that the rpm is at 1150. Does anybody know why or how that is happening?

      Local auto parts stores such as Autozone ( not in California) or Advance Auto parts or Pep Boys will scan this vehicle for free of charge. Asking them to run the RPM test and see if that matches with the RPM of your tachometer. Compare the test results with your own scanner.

      The P0300 code means that a cylinder(s) is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks, intake gaskets are common caused of multi-cylinder misfiring.
      The p0302, p0304, p0306 are misfiring from the even cylinders which they're the front cylinders.

    My engine starts chugging & stalls when warm. its fine cold, and there is no check engine lite on.
    118,000 miles timing belt has been replaced Its fine when cold...runs smooth...but when I am restarting after an errand or something, it stalls, and I have to keep pressing on gas so it will not stall when I switch into gear or idling.

      The check engine light doesn't have to be ON to store a fault code.

      Check the vehicle for fault codes to see if there are any sensors were involved to the malfunction of the engine.

      1.Local auto parts stores such as Autozone ( not in California) or Advance Auto parts will scan and retrieve any diagnostic trouble codes ( dtc ) stored in the powertrain control module for free of charge..

      2. Amazon.com has the code reader for less than $ 18.00 dollars + shipping
      Autel MaxiScan MS300 CAN Diagnostic Scan Tool for OBDII Vehicles

      3.Re-post the dtc's in here " answer question " for further assistance.

      Note: we need the dtc's to identify the sensor, there are a dozen different sensors to operate the car.

      Visit this site and see all the different sensors.

      I did go get it checked and there is no trouble code. Could be fuel filter..not sure. it was doing it again yesterday and after I was at freeway speeds for a while it seemed to idle ok and at the right RPM's when at a stop or slow down.
      I do need to get it inspected next month, so perhaps they can figure it out.
