Question about Toyota Camry

1 Answer

My 2002 V6 Camry has an intermittent stalling out problem. It drives fine until I stop at a light on the Bronx River Parkway. Then it goes totally dead and can't get it started until a few minutes have gone by. Fuel injection was cleaned out by my mechanic, but the problem continues. I have brought it in to my mechanic three times, and the car is still there with the hope he will experience the stalling out. I fear my car will cause an accident with cars trying to go around me. This has happened to me five times in the last 6 weeks, two of which were on the same day.

    The car stalls out dead on various places on the Bronx River Parkway and the beginning of the Taconic Parkway in Westchester County, NY. It only happens when I stop at a light to or from work after I have been driving it for 15 or 20 minutes at about 50 miles per hour. Then I stop for a light. It did happen once while driving locally when I stopped at a stop sign this past summer. My mechanic has taken the car for extended periods of time and nothing happens when he drives it. Months can go by and nothing happens and then it can happen 3x in a week. I've driven 3 1/2 hours and back to Massachusets and nothing happens. I really would like this problem fixed for good. It is annoying and I worry about being rear ended. I do put on my emergency flashers right away. When trying to start there is no rolling over of engine. Red dash board lights on and radio still works. After 3 minutes or more car starts right up and drives as if nothing is wrong.

    So far, my gas tank, fuel pump and gas tank filter have all been recently replaced. I was told the gas tank was rotted out and the gas filter was filthy. I spent over $1,000 for this! Again, the stall problem continues.

    Should I take it back to the dealership from where I bought it? My car has 107,000 miles on it, and being a Toyota, I expect a whole lot more.

Check your alternator if you can get it to start and stay running. If not then you may want to consider taking it off the car and having a parts store bench test it. It's most likely that.

I have a 1994 toyota camry and while driving the engine dies off,then after i stop a few minutes later it starts then i can drive off again

It does sound like fuel pressure is low or intermittent. Here are some check procedures p172 on

Is the check engine light showing a trouble code on the instrument panel? That may pin the trouble down.

without being able to look at the car its next to impossible to diagnose what's going on. taking your car to the dealer will be the best idea considering they have to the tools and equipment to "talk" to the vehicle and see if its storing error codes when these incidents happen. keep in mind this will cost you money since your vehicle is out of warranty.

Hi juanloscastr,

From what you have described, the problem could be any number of things. However, the most common problems of this type are:

Crank Position Sensor
Temperature Sensor
CVC valve.

Are there any lights on? Check engine, oil pressure, anything at all? If so, find your local Advance Auto Parts store, and have them check it with the computer. They will do this for free, and might give you a better idea of what the problem is.

The crank position sensor is fairly cheap(between $5 and $15). So I would start there, and see if it helps.

My 93 Camry starts and drives fine, but when I stop and push on gas it stalls and acts like it wants to cut off, and my check engine light comes on.

your having a TPS (throttle position sensor) or ISC (idle speed control) sensor problem u need to have your car checked using an electronic scan tool to locate the faulty sensor to avoid costly replacement of unnecessary parts.

Sounds like you have an intermittant problem, check all your wirirng, then you can move on to ignition related coil reluctor wheel ( in side the distribitor electronic control module again inside the distribitor. It could also be a fuel system problem do you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn on the key, the fuel pump should cycle until it devlops adequate pressure ( usually 3 - 4 seconds)
