Question about 2000 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

The car keeps stalling after I changed the battery. I changed the battery on my 2003 Camry and now the engine keeps stalling. I was told it would improve with driving but it's not getting better. A friend says there is a sequence of things to do to make it run normal again and I thought I would see if anyone knows what they are?????

If the car ran well before the battery change I'd say there is an issue with either the battery or the installation. Check the leads be ceratin the connections are clean and tight. Examine the cable too' did one get split and is now causing a poor connection. I have never heard of a new battery causing issues and being told it will get better with time.
I'd take a good look at the install or the battery itself.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

no you don`t have to just replace the engine. who ever told you this is miss informed. that would be like saying if you needed a transmission you have to replace the engine.

2003 Toyota Camry 166000 mi., 2.4 liter 4 cylinder. ONLY WHEN CAR IS HOT, idle drops off, engine stalls, must step on accelerator to keep from stalling. Otherwise, idles normally. New spark plugs,...


Some "check engine" light in your dashboard? If YES, need to scanned the PCM (computer) to know exactly what fault code is stored there. If NO, the crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.

Also, keep in mind that on the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 cylinder, a defective Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.

Stalling synthoms... you can have a plugged exhaust, plugged fuel filter, bad airflow meter, problem with the ignition system, incorrect timing belt/chain setting, and failing fuel pump....I'm sure there's more but that should get you thinking.

Keep us updated.

2003 Camry won't stay idling after I changed battery


This is extremely common :)

With time your throttle body gets gummed up with oily residue from the PCV system. As this happens, the computer adapts to the restriction it causes in the throttle body.
When you unhook the battery, these learned values are lost and the default settings for idle control are used. Unfortunately the default settings are no longer sufficient to keep the idle correct with it all gummed up.

Take your intake hoses off the throttle bodies and clean the insides (open the throttle plates for better access) with a rag and some brake parts cleaner or throttle plate cleaner, available from your local parts store.

Reassemble and start the car, your idle problems should be gone immediately.

Idle very low then turns off


this is the cause.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
