Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Does not want to idle.

The car suddenly does not want to idle. It has been fine up to now but will stall and needs more pressure on the gas peddle to stay running. I was thinking fuel filter clogged but not certain.

    It won't be the fuel filter although it never hurts to change it. Do you have an engine light on? If so, have the codes scanned and report. In the meantime, check the air intake hose, is it broken, cracked or loose at the clamped ends? Look very closely.

This is probably caused by a faulty ignition coil, or bad spark plugs.

Replace your spark plugs first, then check your ignition coil.

The car was running fine after i let it warm up. i ran outta gas and every since that the car will stall out when the gas peddle is pressed. it reves up then stalls out i have to keep pressing on the gas...


usually if you run your car or truck dry it messes with the fuel pump really badly so i would check your fuel pressure. not sure what kind of car or truck you have but its really easy to look up how to check your fuel pressure on the internet. its also a good idea to put an additive in with your next fill up just to lube everything back up. oil only lubes the one side and a lot of people dont know that additives really save your engine some stress

Car will idle fine, and will drive for a short distance and then stalls out, but restarts ok. When in park and revving the motor it is fine, but when driving will stall out if you step on the gas peddle...


need to do a compression test sir. this sounds like _blown Head Gasket_ hopt not. could be easy things like clogged fuel injectors, long story short check that fuel rail has pressure to it... run some injector cleaner through gas tank.... check that fuel pump is working properly ie. not turning on /off on/off should stay on whole time cars on. thats all. questions or results post em so i can get back to you :) Derek

Try disconnecting the battery (both terminals and let set for a few hours) with ALL the accessorries on lights-heater-radio etc. This will draw all power from your system, then recconnect battery, it's worth a try even if it doesn't solve your problem. Bill

I have a 91 shadow and had a similar problem. Mine is fuel injected, and the quick fix was to just go buy some fuel injector cleaner, I reccomend STP, and throw that in the gas tank every fill up for about a month. Mine hasn't had the problem since.
