Question about 1999 Toyota RAV4

Open Question

2002 Rav4 starts then stalls

The Rav 4 has difficulty starting, both warm and cold, and after it starts it stalls. After giving it some gas, it will start and stay running. I'm thinking it might be a problem with the valve that stops fuel from draining all the way back to the gas tank when the vehicle is shut off. Where do I find this valve and how do I replace it?

Check your gas filter, or your egr, and vacuum hoses.

clogged injectors you need to put cleaner in the fuel to help get dirt and grit out of them some times (every 3 months).
I am assuming you are saying it will turn over but not fire and run when cold?

SOURCE: stalls when warm 95 camry

I had a problem with my 1995 Camry also. I would run fine cold, warm up when you let off the gas or shifted gears it would die. Sometimes it would start back up and sometimes it would not. After Many repairs, full tune up ect. ect. it turns out that the Coolant Temperature Sensor was bad. A $15 part. When you are driving the engine stays cool but once you let off the gas, when this sensor is bad, it reads the engine as hot and stalls it to keep it from overheating.

SOURCE: smoking rav4

What color is the smoke? If its blueish Your buring oil. If its greyish , Your burning coolant. Black, your fuel fixture is too rich. Usually on start up its Greyish and is coolant. Which means you have a bad head gasket. Can be verified by thecolor of the coolant in the radiator may be a milky blend or you will find oil in the coolant. You can also remove a few plugs and see if there are traces of coolant on them. Good luck and keep me posted.

My toyota rav 4 engine stalls sometime when driving after the engine light switches on. I then need to turn the ignition a couple of times for it to start. Any help?

From little info given, I suspect it is overdue a service or it has been done by a non Toyota garage, it needs a laptop to tell it that a service has been done, to get you going, switch it off, open door, close it, and then re-start

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies

I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?
