SOURCE: battery dying
No the alternator won't keep it running on a Toyota, the system is wired much different than most cars, found this out the hard way on same type of car. Test the alternator, raise the idle up to 1500 RPM turn on everything in the car, lites on high beam, ac blower on high, everything, voltage at battery should not be less than about 13.5 volts and not more than 14.7 volts, (clean battery cables first) if all that checks out you have a draw in the system, most common source is the glove box lite or trunk lite, on rare occasions a bad isolation diode in the alternator can cause a voltage draw, another test is to pull off the positive battery battery cable at night and lightly touch it to the battery post, if you see any faint spark there is a draw somewhere in the system, these types of issues can be heck to find, but not always, check what I said to. And last but not least clean the battery cables thoroughly, get a battery brush tool from parts store they are cheap, neutralize any acid with a solution of baking soda and warm tap water.

if the idling of your engine only dies off at first gear, you may have a clutch problem. check first if you have fluid in your clutch fluid reservoir, or if its cable make sure that the cable is pulling the clutch lever for a reasonably long travel. there may be leaks in your clutch master or slave cylinders. If your engine behaves well during neutral. it has to be a clutch problem

Ok the fastest way to solve weather it is the cats in the exhaust system is to take it too a exhaust specialist and ask them to do a exhaust pressure test. They should have all the pressure drop data there and can tell you if there is to much restriction in the exhaust, if there is to much chances are they will be the cats, usually the front one. Yep your dad is correct with his theory, but excessive overfuelling will also cause the cats to build up excess heat and start to melt, or fall apart. So get a good service when your able too, plugs/filters and oils. Yep your firing order is correct.

Testimonial: "Good detail, which specifically addressed each part of my question. Advice is directly on point and with layman's terminology. Extremely useful. "
clutch master or slave cyl. could have gone out so you are no longer releasing clutch thats why no pressure on pedal. look for Brake fluid leak -clutch uses same type of fluid. or master cyl can leak or bypass internally and just not build pressure.
