Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
2009 Prado diesel(auto) running fine but in past month problem of intermittent stalling when idlying. Only occurs intermittently and after a reasonable run and engine is heated up - pull up at lights and whilst idlying will simply stall. Vehicle will restart without fuss and then drives ok for days/week before the problem recurs under the same circumstances described. Fuel filters and accelerator pedal replaced but problem remains?? Nothing evident when dealer uses diagnostic equipment on vehicle and unfortunately the problem has not occured when they road test with diagnostic equipment?? A sensor or something?? Going around in circles and driving me crazy!!
SOUNDS LIKE THE FIRST STAGES OF AN ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP FAILING. THEY ARE NOTORIOUS FOR THESE TYPES OF SYMPTOMS. THE LOW PRESSURE AT THE TRAFFIC LIGHT RESULTS IN THE STALL, BUT AS LONG AS ITS UNDER DEMAND IT WILL FUNCTION OK UNTIL IT QQUITS. HAVE A PRESSURE CHECK DONE ON THE FUEL PUMP

I think your looking at a fuel line problem. I'd check the filter first if you have an inline filter on your car. If thats not it, check filter on fuel pump and fuel pump is operating as it is supposed to. sounds like you probably have a partial blockage in your line and when the fuel it flowing faster it doesn't effect it as much. I'm thinking fuel filter and you probably have 1 inline on that vehicle.
