Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.
What you have is most likely a sticking EGR valve. This device opens on deceleration, and routes exhaust gas back thru the engine; a pollution control device.
Now, if it sticks in the open position at idle, the exhaust is going into the engine at the wrong time, and this will stall your vehicle.
I would recommend removing the valve, and see if the tube going to the valve is carboned up. If so, you could consider cleaning out the carbon buildup with some carb cleaner, and spraying the carb cleaner into the valve may eliminate your condition. The best way to fix this is buy and install a new EGR valve, but we would recommend cleaning the old one first; that may save you some money.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
