Sounds like u haven't regularly serviced the car ! If there is oil coming out of exhaust it will most properly be a fouled spark plug or plugs but the reason 4 it fouling plugs would be either leaking valve stem seals or piston rings!!!
Change spark plugs and see if problem rectifies!

Rav 4 1998 Toyota stalling when coming to a stop, turning or placed in park. Occasionally misses (jerks) when accelerating from a stop or slowing vehicle.

Did they clean the idle air control motor. I done a few. You have to use a pick or paper clip works and dig the carbon build up out of them, with using a cleaner.

Coolant and oil in my throttle body

Sounds like it.
The plugs will burn quite a bit of coolant before they foul out and you see smoke from the exhaust.

Oil in air intake and throttle body

The oil in the intake is likely coming from the pcv valve- blowby. This oil shouldn't cause any stalling problem although it can give some blue colored smoke from the exhaust. A car that runs is worth fixing.

When accelerating the car jerks on and off, the car shifs ok no problem only when accelerating.

Sounds like a common problem with the throttle body for our models, especially model years 2001 - 2002, and some 2003's as well but not as many.
Check out:
They will rebuild your throttle body (also called ETM) with a digital angle sensor which is superior to stock for $600.
You'll need to get the car checked out first to make sure it's the ETM.

My 1995 Buick Lesabre is misfiring

If it only happens at a certain point in the throttle travel, it may be a bad TPS. You would need a computer to confirm loss of signal, but that is what it sounds like.

92 Grand Marquis chugs and dies when at an idle. Also jerks alot

The throttle speed control valve must be cleaned. The valve is located near the throttle body throat. It has an oval flange with two bolts. Unplug it, take it off and clean it out with throttle body cleaner. You will notice a big difference. This is a common issue with this engine.
Please remember to rate this fix.

Chugging and power lose

Major tune up and change the crank sensor and the camshaft sensor. Also look at the wire harnes for both they have a problem shorting out. Mostly the harness to the crank sensor at or above the oil filter. This wire shorts because of heat and needs to be rerouted and insulated. Also, make sure you have all your gaskets inside of the intake maniflods and throttle body is secure with no air leakes. Change all your senors on this car that seems to be the trouble with this car is the sensors........runjoe
