    Camry Stalling

    Those of you still chasing this stalling problem, make sure you know that my previous posting about the distributor replacement, meant that I replaced the distributor, distributor cap, and rotor, NOT just the distributor cap. The distributor is a $500 part, but that WAS the issue with my 94 4-cyl. Good Luck! :D

    Got the stalling problem fixed, but now the water pump has given up! I'll bet if we put all 10 of these cars together, we might have enough parts to have one that'll run!

    Looks like the distributor was the fix for mine. Two months and 2K miles later, I seem to be back to normal.

    Camry Stalling

    1994 Camry 4cyl auto, 183K miles. The car had run fine since I bought it 1 year ago. One morning it wouldn't start. It turned over just fine, but no fire. Had it towed to dealer. They replaced timing belt, air intake control valve, cleaned the fuel tank?, replaced plugs. The car ran fine for two days, then began to stall once warm, wouldn't idle. I took it back to the dealer, they said it must be the distributor cap, rotor, and plug wires. I just told them to give it back to me, since I can go on a parts hunt just as easily. Anyway I replaced the distributor cap, rotor, plugs, wires, fuel filter, PCV valve. It ran a little better for a few days, but then right back to the stalling when warmed up. It finally died and wouldn't start again. Had it towed back to the dealer. I got the service manager to look at it, and he immediately said "It's the distributor". They replaced the distributor ($473) and all seems good. I'll let you know if it holds up since I've seen others in this space say that the distributor was replaced but wasn't a permanent fix.
