This should be easy if it died and wont start. Like the last post check engine timing belt then check big fuses outside in the engine compartment in the black box.

#77 of 117 Please help, car keeps stalling
Oct 02, 2008 (11:10 am)
I have a 97 camry v6 with 160k. It will crank and start just fine, but after about 3 seconds it dies like it is out of gas. If I restart it, it will crank normally and start right up, and do the same thing. It dies every time, without fail. If you press the pedal, it will run a little longer, but the rpms keep falling until it dies. If you hold it at 3 thousand or higher, it keeps running, but roughly. I don't know too much about cars and can't afford to play the guessing game. I think it must be fuel delivery. could it be a fuel pump? fuel filter? fuel pressure pump? some kind of sensor. any ideas are appreciated. thanks

Sounds like an air induction problem or the computer getting a bad fuel/air mixture signal.
Check the duct going into the intake and big rubber hoses attached to the intake manifold and this duct. It starts at the air filter. At three thousnd it might not pick up the air leak since more air is running through the engine at that speed.

I missed runs rough after starting at 3000 rpm's.
I d do your own compression check on the front bank and the one spark plug on the rear bank of cylinders. To get started, you need a spark plug socket and ratchet and extension, plus compression gage at Sears $30.00 dollars. Check My Carspace.
#80 of 117 update on stalling problem

I had my brother help me look at the car. We couldn't find any vacuum leaks. He did an old fashioned test of putting a little bit of gas in the air filter to see if the car is getting fuel. Sure enough, the car ran fine until it burned out the gas, and then it stalled. He thought that was a sure sign of a fuel pump problem. We replaced the fuel pump, and it did not fix the problem. It did not seem like there was much or any fuel pressure in the lines. Is there a way to check the pressure in the line? Is it possibly some air flow issue still, even given the fact that it keeps running with gas poured in the air ducts (which seems like fuel delivery to me)? What about EGR or iac valves or mas airflow sensor? These parts are expensive--is there any way to test them? the car is throwing a code, but I don't want to spring a hundred and fifty bucks for the reader unless it will tell me exactly what is going on. Thanks

Is the fuel pump turning on, and pumping fuel? Does it have electrical power?

yes, the fuel pump turns on (I can hear it), so it's not the fuse or electrical. Now, I don't know if the pump is actually pumping or if the fuel filter is allowing fuel to get pumped.

If the air duct from the air filter has a crack, it screws up the mass air flow sensor readings and runs poorly.
I'd remove it and look under it for a crack along a seam on one of the ribs. A squeeze test of this duct while running, will cause it to stall out.
Dont buy a Mass Air Sensor till your sure it is bad. I bet if you disconnect the Mass Air Flow sensor it will still run. Some cars computers go into default and will still run on the default settings if it senses a malfunction in the Mass Air Flow Sensor.
#84 of 117 MPG on a 2007 V6 XLE Camry

Good Morning All:
I just returned from a road trip to New York State. I traveled at 70mph on the NYSTW, and the vehicle got 31mpg! ---- This was achieved on 87 off-brand fuel. ---This is OUTSTANDING for a V6 engine.
On entering the highway from a rest stop, I accelerated "hard" to see how this vehicle would perform. Within seconds it reached 80mph! ----- The shifts were smooth and positive. (The vehicle peformed like a "ROCKET"!) This vehicle could easily cruise at 100mph! (I would love to try this for about 1/2 hour somewhere if "RADAR" was not an issue !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)--------- It is truly a road car! --- (Life was more fun years ago without road radar.)
Best regards! ------------------- Dwayne
#85 of 117 1997 Toy Camry fuel problem
Aug 23, 2009 (12:47 pm)
I have a 1997 toy camry with 256K on it. It is a 4cyl. It will start and run great, however when you give it gas it chugs and close to stalling. When you give it gas slowly it will not chug, well just not as much. When you give it gas it is very slugish. check eng light came on. Could this be a trans or fule system problem? What could be doing this?
