Is there a way to reset ECU without any special tools?

The common procedure is to disconnect the battery for at least 10 minutes which will allow any charges to dissipate resetting the ECU.

As a result when power is restore the idle may have been upset and feathering of the throttle will likely be required to keep the engine from stalling.

It can take several minutes for the ECU to relearn the idle position as you are feathering the throttle.

When reset the engine parameters are reset to factory new. The driving and shift points will also have to be relearned and can cause unexpected stall and hard shiftd as the drive parameters are relearned.

Hope thid helps?

What causes my van to keep stalling

Have you changed the fuel filter? Possibly restricted. Check engine light on? Scan for codes that may pertain to this issue. Possible throttle position sensor or throttle actuator.

If it has a caby then check why the float is not controlling the needle and seat that controls the amount of fuel into the carby. Check the needle and seat for something like a hair or the rubber on the needle is cracked or the seat is loose in the carby body. Concentrate on the carby as the over fuelling problem is in that area. Check that the choke is not coming on

When cleaning throthle out run engine and manually operate the gas pedal in engine area and open butterfly up and clean the gum off it as it will cause rpm to surge if not cleaned

Some time does not start and have to keep one foot on gas to get it started

Pull your intake hoses off the throttle bodies and check for carbon buildup in the throttle bodies and on the throttle plate.

Avalons (Toyota 3.0L engines in general) have a big issue with the throttle bodies needing regular cleaning. Excess buildup will starve the engine for air, requiring you to feather the throttle to get it idling when cold.

Prolonged conditions will lead to gumming up the idle motor and potentially damaging it.

Cranks but no start

Sounds like the carb is dirty. I would check that before spending a lot of money of other things.
