    I have a 2017 SR5 and since I got it when I turn the steering wheel the engine revs up 300 rpm. The dealer said it was normal but I have a friend who has the same truck without this problem. Anyone else have this program?

    I do have the same issue, Thought it was to release some of the pressure on the power steering. I am probably wrong, let me know if you figure out something so I can fix it too if it's something bad with it.

    When you add a load to the engine when it's at idle, the ECU is going to open the throttle to keep a minimum RPM so the engine doesn't stall and the accessories spin at a sufficient RPM. This extra load could be power steering, AC or even an electrical load.
