this either your idle air control motor or a weak battery,that will cause the idle air control to search for the right position.and will stall.

SOURCE: 2000 Avalon won't start and idle. Only while foot is on the gas

Avalons are prone to the the throttle body and Idle control valve getting gunked up over time. I took mine off, spent about 45 minutes cleaning it well with carb cleaner and q tips, and reinstalled. I haven't had the problem since. It is relatively easy, the hard part is not stripping the screws. Everthing is righ on top of the engine, not a hard repair. Mine did not have the smoke issue, however, it would start but would die as soon as you let off the gas.

IAC valve has gone bad. Its located on the throttle body and is what controlls/keeps the vehicle running at idle.

Check the EGR operation. If this valve is leaking it will cause your symptoms.

Problems with starting


Coupla things:
1) I guesssed hot start - I think the system is dealing with gas volatility and trying to ensure that a minimum of unburnt fuel is released into the cat - in the long run, that is good for the air and your car. 2) Here is a tip which really is a tip for everyone for every start. Turn the key to on, but wait a second until you hear the fuel pump cut off - that means the fuel rail is fully pressuruzed, and the car should start right up, for a cold start. It may also reduce the longer crank times during a #1.
