1999 Lexus - ES 300 - STalling Problem

My 1999 Lexus ES 300 starts but but stalls as soon as the foot is off the accelerator. It has 95000 miles and have followed the maintenance schedule rigidly. Any suggestions as to what could be the problem and what is a reasonable price to fix the problem. Any repair shop is Ok to fix the problem or a Lexus dealer is a must.

Thanx for your help.

First of all, change the Lexus Dealership who is doing your rigid maintenance because they are ripping you off and not doing the work or careless on the way out of your engine compartment.
At 95k, you should have changed out your timing belt, replace all the sparkplugs, cleaned out the throttle body, cleaned the MAF sensors, replace the O2 sensors, inspected and replace the fuel rails, and the spark distribution units and you should not be getting a simple problem as this.
All this said, open you hood and look for a vacuum hose that is disconnected.  Most of the hoses which will cause this type of problem is located around the air filter box or connected to that side of the engine.

Why does Lexus keep stalling after running awhile


Call the nearest Auto Zone and see if they offer to plug-in a "Code Reader" that displays "Fault Codes". You could luck-out and it could be a easy replacement part that they sell.You will have to drive your vehicle to the store location. Good luck.

Lexus SC430 Stalling Problem


Check the EVAP system canister purge valve, usually located on or near the canister itself which should be near the fuel tank. If the valve is clogged or stuck, it will cause excessive backpressure in the vapor return system, which sounds like what is happening here. Good luck, hope this helps.

My 1999 Lexus ES 300 does not go into overdrive every so often.


If check engine light goes off then there is a trouble code stored. You'll need to retrieve the code w/ a scan tool and follow the proper diagnosis.

Hello, I just went through this. The problem is the air intake valve. Because your cars computer was disconected from power for some time during the repair, the AIV has now go to figure out (re-learn) a proper position for proper idling.

My mechanic erroneously said that I should drive it around the neighborhood for about 10 miles with frequent stops, etc. Perhaps this was needed but at the conclusion it was still stalling.

I then took it on the freeway for just a couple of miles and presto... it was fixed!

Good luck
