First you check the codes and diag. after, going off what the codes read, then you start there. that kind of problem, usely set A CODE. to start with, sounds like a problem that would set a code most likely.

2003 Rav 4 periodically stalls at low idle, intersections

Start with the throttle body. I use brake clean and a toothbrush. Clean the plate and were it sits. Wouldn't hurt to spray down the MAF sensor, if it has one. Once you do it, it will take a few seconds to start. Once started, rev it up and spray inside the throttle. Keep it running. Most times this is a $4 fix.

I have a 93' sierra 6 cylinder 2 wheel drive, once engine warms up it sputters and loses power. If you shift from drive to reverse it stalls and won't start. When engine has cooled it starts like a champ...

The problem may be the engine coolant sensor. If the sensor fails the engine will stop when normal operating temperature is reached . When engine is cold it will start.

Sounds like a throttle positioning sensor. Its what monitors the gas pedal. If its faulty when you push the gas it will choke and sputter and rev high and stall. So will the Mass air flow sensor. Hope this points you in the right direction. With the car running, unplug these 2 sensors 1 at a time and see if the motor stalls. If not 1 of these are to blame.

99 dodge caravan when driving just stops,will start then once driving will stop .what is it

Although it could be several different things it has the sound of a MAP sensor. Does it ever **** or miss sometimes when you are driving? Does it do it frequently? Has it progressively gotten worse? There are several possibilities, but if it runs fine part or most of the time and stalls for no reason - then restarts - have the MAP sensor checked. I have seen that kind of problem incorrectly diagnosed as a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) but if it accelerates smoothly it is not likely that.

2002 oldsmobile intrigue starts but stalls only once.

You have a bad crankshaft position sensor. When the thermostat opens on warmup, the auxiliary air pump starts up momentarily which causes a quick dip in battery voltage and drops the output from the crankshaft rotation sensor. the computer thinks the engine is not running and shuts down the fuel. If idling, engine will die, if moving sometimes will just hiccup.
