Question about 1991 Toyota Camry
I did a tune up on the car charging the spark plugs and distributer cap and car started but shut off after puttig in in drive or reverse. changed plugs again with a setting of .044 and put the old distributer cap and wires back on and car still shuts off once i put it in gear.
I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.
