hey guys,

i'm using a 96 3sgte. just recentlly the car starts and dies. if i keep the gas on the throttle the car will stay on but as soon as i come to a stop the car dies.

i'm think it the air flow meter. i cant really afford to get a new one but i have several other AFM from my 89 celica. they are almost the same.

well my qustion is, will the 89 AFM work with a 96 3sgte ECU.

No... weren't the 94+ 3SGTE's all MAP sensored?

OK, there is a switch inside the TPS that tells the ECM to idle the engine, if it goes bad to where it never closes, the motor will just kill at about 1k, I have had numerous toyotas do this and where the kids bring up the idle with the stop too high will do the same thing. My 89 Camry did this on an off ramp one day, I thought it ran out of gas, butafter a tow to the shop, I found out after changing the intake thinking it was a vacuum leak somewhere, not realizing that when I swapped the intake, the throttle body with all the sensors on it went with it:hammer: I still get ragged on about that one many years later:D

I ruled out the afm yesterday.

I will paypal 25$ or send a cd player to the person that suggests something that fixes my car... After I swap water necks today and adjust ignition timing, I'm pretty much out of options... :ugh3:

I just got her to fire on her own, no pumping the gas, by turning the dizzy all the way clockwise. Still shuts off though, sounds like I missed a tooth or two, eh?

This is exactly what I was afraid of, if I can't get it right out of the car, there is no way I'll get it in the car. but i'm :) for now!

ok..i had the same problem before when my swap was finished..turned out that it wasn't producing proper spark so it dies as soon as you give it gas..i would check your ignition...turned out also that the tps was bad...
