USA Help!!

I have a 95 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder. I have an intermittent problem. The car will always start in the morning. After it warms up and idling at a traffic light it can stall. Sometimes it will start up again and sometimes I have to wait 5 minutes before restarting. Sometimes if I go into a store for a few minutes and then try to start it: the engine will turn over but not start running. If I wait 5 minutes it will start. The stalling while idling is the main problem. The engine check light is NOT on.

I changed the spark plugs, spark plug wires and replaced the idle control valve module on the throttle body. I cleaned the throttle body. Any ideas as to why this care can is stalling intermitttently??

its sound like your coil pack inside distributor goes bad. the coil pack either crack ... please open the distributor cap and look for sign of cracks.

do a search on this forum, someone has a similar problem like your.

A similar problem in my Camry was solved by replacing the coolant temperature sensor. The car needs to properly read the engine temperature so that it can get the fuel/air mixture correct. The part is less than $20 at an auto parts store, and easy to replace.

Did you have a check engine light with the failed temp sensor? I would expect it with this failure. But not with a failed coil pack.

No, it never triggered the check engine light. I still checked it with a code reader hoping to find something but there were no codes stored.
