Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
I would say you need to replace the idle air controler. It is a device that is located on the throttle body after the "butterfly" flap. With the trottle open ( while driving) the engine gets a good flow of air. While the throttle is closed (stopped or braking) the air is blocked by the flap and idle is controlled by a solenoid allowing air into the throttle body at a governed rate to create an idle. If this is faulty and closed (or blocked) the engine will stall. if it is faulty and open the engine will rev too high (about 2000rpm) Check it!

Engine stalling 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 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
