I have a 2013 chevy tahoe 5.3. I just cleaned the throttle body. Now the rpms are at 3000. I tried the 3mins run 1 min off. I did this a few times but no luck. After some more research people said to take it for a drive on the highway to complete the release Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far? Cleaned the throttle body Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? Having issues with the re learning

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* I will do my best to assist you. During this conversation you will be given an automated offer for a phone call. You may accept or decline that offer.I don’t personally offer this service so if you take this another tech may call I’m sorry that you’re having trouble with your vehicle. I will do my best to help you resolve them. Please understand that I do not know your knowledge or capabilities so I may need to ask questions to find out basic information to help solve your specific problem. My aim is to give you the best service possible and to help you. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let me know. Sometimes it may take a moment for me to respond because I may have to look up information about your concern. I appreciate your patience and will provide responses as soon as possible. While the the throttle learn procedure you are referring to is in fact a GM procedure, it is only for early to mid 2000s GM vehicles, NOT for a 2013. For yours, it REQUIRES the use of a scan tool with programming capabilities to do the idle learn. 2013 Chevy Truck Tahoe V8-5.3L Throttle Learn Scan Tool Idle Learn or Idle Learn Reset Procedure – Performed after the throttle body is cleaned or replaced Ignition ON, [engine](/topics-engine-chevy/) OFF, perform the Idle Learn or Idle Learn Reset in Configuration/Reset or Module Setup from scan tool menu. Engine idling, verify the scan tool Throttle Body Idle Airflow Compensation value is equal 0% and the engine is idling at a normal idle speed. Thanks for using Just Answer and letting me help you. I hope I provided what you needed. If you find more help is still needed, let me know by listing out any remaining questions you have on this concern. I hope the remainder of your day is well

Do you need a specific scan tool for this procedure?Or should I take it the dealership?
Automotive Expert
HI It just has to be bi-directional, meaning it can do programming. Ones such as the Launch 431x pro, Snap On Solus, Snap On Edge, Autel Maxisys all are capable - starting prices around $900 It is cheaper to pay a shop 1 hour labor, $100 or so than to buy a scan tool that will do it

Ok. Is it ok to shift into drive while the car is idling so high (3000rpm). I need to drive it to the dealership.
Automotive Expert
HI Just for one time it will be. It will give you a jolt and unless you have your foot firmly on the brake, it will want to take off on you.

I tried but there's no movement. Are there any restrictions
Automotive Expert
HI It should go into gear and move even with a racing throttle body.

Is it normal to get the p0507 code?
Automotive Expert
HI yes, it is. There is even a service bulletin out for this If the throttle body is cleaned without performing an "idle learn reset/reset idle learn" with the Tech 2, the ECM/PCM may continue to compensate for previous carbon build up, causing it to return with a similar concern as well as DTCs P0121, P0506, and/or P0507.

Have you ever seen or heard of chevys not moving when you put them in drive when idling @ 300rpm
Automotive Expert
HI, Only when there is a transmission issue, not from just cleaning the throttle body

3000rpm sorry
Automotive Expert
Only when there is a transmission issue, not from just cleaning the throttle body To be honest, not sure why the transmission is not engaging at this point
