I got 1994 toyota andf it stall when i turn on anything like blinkers or headlight and when i put it in gear. Its a five speeed v-6 but it starts right up and idles but if i hit brake it sounds likeit


ok , i guess you are saying the engine stalls when I use heavy electrical loads (like head lamps or brakes or even blinkers)
and when you shift from park to drive.
ok , if the engine RPM is 800 before the stall, then that is a total loss
of engine power with lost of idle controls.

The big load is in DRIVE on automatics huge going to DRIVE.

if battery voltage (yes, a 10 buck walfart meter works) can see 13.3 to 15vdc idling at 800 or more RPm.
the Alternator does not work below 800 so , dont expect it to.

so, if rpm in park is below 800 then we fix that first, see why?
if idle drops below 800 this is caused buy many things.
one vital fact missing is you didnt say, if I drive it like a stole it.
that is aggressive right foot. , do you have full engine power, now?
ignoring stalls. (see my drift there, "is engine power good;?)

battery volts above 13.3vdc.
idle at 800 and stalls in DRIVE (shifted)
  • low fuel pressure.
  • never ever tuned up this decade, with all spark parts bad.
  • ISC stuck( idle speed controller (it lets in more air , in DRIVE)
  • low engine compression.
  • other complex ,fueling issues, (ask) and lots of tests. (ask)
if no tachmeter in car or tool box, repairs get dicey.
hard,
it takes tools to diagnose and fix cars.
go tools? or willing to buy them
if not,? get it serviced.

Gave it a tune up cleaned the aic valve what is it it isn't that bad it feels like just a little miss


this is called misfire.
what engine, options,? 4L, ? what?
misfire can happen at many operational mode.
parked, driving , at any time. so when does yours miss.
only at idle, cruise , accel. , wide open throttle (or all times)
does it miss hot engine. or cold or both.

IS THE CEL lamp out running? (but for sure on key on, not started.)
does the engine reach and old 180F more more..
it must, or the . thermostat is bad. fix that first on all cars. made. first.

if all that is ok, i then scan the ECU.

Check engine light on? Any codes? Missed before and after the cap was changed? Or is the cap new so you assume its good. I have had caps bad out of the box.

When I start-up the engine and put it in drive, I could feel the car raise up. what happened; it does not do it any more. Lincoln LS 2002 -V6


That feeling of raising up,only happens when your foot is on the brake and you pull up on the Electronic Parking Brake.

Also what you discribe,could be caused by starting the engine and immediately putting it in gear,before allowing the idle to come down.

I never start any vehicle and drive away. Even in warm weather I let the vehicle warm up about three minutes or more and drive slow for a couple of miles ,until it is in closed loop. That's when the O2 Sensor takes over and controls the fuel system. So forget about saving fuel by leaving on a cold engine. That is nonsense and not fact or theory based.

Rough idle, stalling, cruise control out


Sounds like you have a vacuam leak.
Check the vacuom hose to the cruise canister........and work yuor way back to the source. I'll bet you find a hose off. Also, listen for any "hissing" sounds (obviously, not the carb).
Bet that solves ALL your probs.
