Default 2001 Camry won't Idle?

Timing appears good, no miss, wires and plugs are all kinda recent.
And it's not throwing a code? At least no CEL. Any ideas on what it
could be? TIA

I'm guessing this is separate from the throttle body, but part of the
same assembly, but yes. I'd be cleaning that whole mess.

We had an issue on my wife's old 1999 Camry that caused the same
symptoms. All better after the cleaning. We gave that car to a tenant
of our for his daughter's first car. It had over 280K on the odomter.
A year later, it's still running fine with no issues.

Thanks. I put my foot on the gas and idled it myself as I was going to
get some seafoam stuff. By the time I got one block it was idling ok.
I seafoamed it anyway to be sure.

Must admit I was shocked to have ANY problem with this car. 184xxx
miles and not much to squeak about. Guess it's got me spoiled. Left my
miata up north. So, kinda need that reliability to continue. Don't see
the miata as a good ghetto insurance agent car. :0)
