An engine that stays running "dieseling" after you turn off the key would be running hot. Check the coolant level in the overflow bottle when the car is cold and top it up. You will likely have to do this more than once to get the level back to where it should be, so check it for a few days and top up as until it stays full. Hope this helps.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Since your check engine light is on, you need to take it to Autozone or Advanced and have it scanned. They will do this for free and they will tell you why your check engine light is on. It is on because the computer in your card has detected a problem. The light will probably show why your car is acting up.
Why is the check light on for months?
As soon as you get a light on, you have the possibility of a stored code, and a place to start your diagnostic testing, immediately.
After 30 years of electronic systems, installed on vehicles, I don't see why people don't understand how their vehicles function.
Take it to a repair shop, as soon as the light comes on. Then you find out what may be the issues, where as waiting, could possibly cause further problems or damage.
I don't have the solution, but I have the same exact problem on my 1991 Escort 1.9L with auto with 120K miles. I replaced the IAC with no difference. In fact I unplugged it, and still had the random stalling. Also disconnected the EGR vacuum line...still stalled randomly. After it stalls it always starts right back up again. Sometimes it will act as if it's going to stall, but comes back to normal idle. Park or Drive makes no difference. Acceleration and all normal driving is fine. The next thing I was going to try is hooking up a timing light and watch to see if the timing light stops flashing as it's stalling, and/or hooking up a fuel pressure gauge somehow, to the fuel rail, to see if the pressure drops when stalling....to figure out if its ignition or fuel related.
CHECK FOR THE FUEL STRAINER/FILTER! could have been clogged. check for blockage at the air intake. check for battery voltage and current, insufficient starting speed makes less compression and makes ignition very difficult! due to several ignition attempts battery might have discharged a lot! you may have it checked for its voltage and acidity level
presence of water on the fuel can also cause your problem! it prevents the fuel to ignite at the cylinder.
I had the same sort of problem, i found that the battery was low, the clicking could be the glow plug relay, as the speedo is electronic, it will flick over to full speed and back down again. Give the battery a good charge, and see if this helps
I have a '93 Camry with the 3VFE 3.0 V6. It will not idle after coming
up to operating temperature. From reading your past advice, I removed
and cleaned the IAC valve. It was pretty fouled, so suspected it was
the culprit. After a long test drive including highway speeds,
stopping at a red light would cause it stall again. But during cold
start up the car performed well, and idled at about 1100 rpm. I
jumpered the TE1 and E1 diagnostic ports, and got only the normal mode,
continuous flashing light. Do you have any further advice? I
appreciate any help you can give me. This is a great site because of
the many helpful people on here like you. Thanks again.
Since there is no check engine light the problem is mechanical and not
related to the EFI system with the exeption of a faulty air flow meter
which in most cases will not trigger a check engine light, but before
replacing this expensive part you need to check for any air leaks on
the intake side, check for any loosenes or cracks in the large intake
hoses from the air filter to the throttle body also check for any other
possible vacuum leaks on the intake system.
