Why does my1992 Toyota Previa keep shutting off & stalling?


Possibly, but you could also suspect the computer-controlled idle valve or motor, the throttle position sensor, or a weak fuel pump.

It might help you to check for any trouble codes in the computer. The check engine light is used to flash out 2 digit trouble codes; here's how to do so, with a list and description of codes:

check the pcv valve as they will gum up if the oil has not been changed regularly. I would also check all vacuum hoses for cracks or breaks

I have a 1990 dodge dakota 3.9 liter v6...idles rough and stalls out at stopping...i have changed cap rotor plugs and wires...and also the throttle positioning sensor...no change..any ideas would be...


Do the service below.

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If this doesn't improve the problem you have mechanical problems in the engine like a low cylinder die to worn rings or leaking valve seats.

Its hard to start,the engine is rolling over but


i have seen this before on that type of car, the distributor cap has a habit of cracking causing a loss of spark. you can see the cracks from the outside of the cap.

Having problems with fuel delivery seems to stall out at idle after it has been running awhile, i have changed fuel filter and spark plugs. 1994 jeep grand cherokee laredo with 318 v8 engine.


go to an electronics shop supplier and get a can of freeze spray.
it cools to -60f. let the jeep run until it misbehaves ,then cool down the ignition module.if it runs,you know it is bad. you could have either a heat related electronic issue,or something like a frozen egr valve ,or iac motor that keeps leaning and leaning out the mixture.
the catalytic converter could be plugged...usually a sulfur smell is with that and setoff the check engine light.
,the computer controls the idle and the fuel injection.
you may have an issue in the ecm itself. cooling down the ecm will let you know if there is an issue.
even a distributor cap that is cracked can heat up and fail
and the lead wires themselves.
