Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

After driving a while, I pull up to a stop light and after several seconds of waiting it dies. The problem is intermittent. Already replaced idle motor and crank sensor and had fuel system treatment. I can usually get it restarted after a few tries.

Try cleaning both the MAF sensor and the Throttle Body. Both require different cleaners, but if either is dirty it will cause the condition that you are having. Cleaning each is rather easy, but take caution with the MAF sensor, it is very fragile and can be damaged easily. Follow the instructions on the cleaning products and you will fine.

I have a 2003 RAV4, Drives ok, but engine dies if stopped with AC running or in drive. One day Check engine light came on vehicle would not start. replace both gas pumps. Once the car is moving it is ok,,...

Most likely your idle speed is too low due to dirt on throttle plates and IAC valve. cleaning these items usually restores normal idle operation.

2002 gmc sierra, 3500, 8.1, flashing mil, dies, starts rough idle

First buy the alldata subscription for your unit and read the engine power management system, once you understand this then you will see you don't need a scanner, you can code out if it's a engine problem then read the codes itself with a paper clip. Then once you get the codes post them here to get a better answer, the more information you can provide the better the answer you will get. A digital test meter will be better than a scanner. Without understanding the engine management system you won't be able to fix it without replacing a lot of parts.

'98 Toyota 4Runner Won't Idle -Intermittent Problem

The problem could actually be in the transmission. Have the filter and fluid changed and see if the problem recurs. You may havesome dirt in the fluid that is sticking one of the solenoids. Once you stop and rest it for a while, the junk drops to the bottom and you can drive normal again.
Hope this helps and rate me highly.

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking

my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.

Car battery

You have a very common problem. You have lost the "base idle" paramater, by changing the battery. What you need to do is drive the car thru several "drive cylces". Drive it in stop & go traffic, stop & let it idle for 2 minutes...then get an the expressway, engage passing gear several times. Pull off somewhere safe, let it idle, and duplicate the cycle again. This will teach the ECU the base idle, and you problem will vanish. We do this every day, for the same issue. Common problem, easy fix.
