Question about 1997 Toyota 4Runner
I have replaced the air filter, plugs, wires, coil packs, TPS sensor, cam SENSOR, MAF sensor, fuel filter, fuel line (that was bent), as well as vaccum lines. I can drive it, but have to be in nuetral pressing the gas when at a stop. It doesn't bog down, it just shuts off. Somedays it seems to be doing ok, but all of a sudden it will start and not quit. I'm at a loss, and the proces of eliminations is digging deep into my pockets. Any suggestions of where to go from here.
It has a low oil sensor that will disable the ignition if more than a quart low . It could be a bad ignition switch, I just had to replace one on a Ford bronco that was doing the same thing. Also it is probably time for a fuel pump ( fuel starvation)

Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator. Could also be that the timing jumped. But I'm leaning towards the pressure regulator. Hope that I could help. Best wishes.

pull the vac line off going to egr valve and plug off the vac line and drive it to see if it will still stall.but if i was a betting man i would say that it will not die and you will need to replace the egr valve this is a common problem.if it sets a check engine light cause you unplugged the vac hose you can reset by pulling the efi fuse that is under the hood in the fuse block and keep it out for about 30 sec or taking the battery cable off. good luck and i hope this will help let me know how i did and if i can help you any further...........
