Help, I have a 95 Camry that stalled the other day and i can't find the
problem. I found it was time for a tune up so new plugs, wires, cap and
button. I also added a new fuel filter. I thought all ways well she
started up with no problem runs smooth, I drove about 2 miles and the
trouble came back. Waited about 5 minutes the car started back up and
drove about a half mile and did it again. Any techniges to trouble shoot
this will help. I truly think its in the distibutor and coil. Anyone
else have this problem?

Under what condition is the engine stalling; idle, deceleration, cruising?
Warmed up, cold? And list the engine you have.

See if you get spark when it dies, a dirty coil can do this.

Since you have replaced quite few things,..I'd try listing to see if you can
hear the petrol-pump working next time the car stops. Before hand acquaint
your self with its sound by listening close to the tank. Most cars can be
heard without trouble. Its a high pitched whing sound. It maybe stopping
intermittantly.

The other thing is the ignition. The easiest way is it hook-up a timing
light with either the transducer which clips around ignition lead 1or the
older direct connection type which is clipped onto the spark-plug top with
the lead also connecting to the spring shaped connector. This way you can
test to see if ignition is absent, In this case, the timing light will fail
to trigger the strobe-light in the timing-gun when the trigger is operated.
