car starts up and then shuts back off after a few seconds of idling
I just replaced my '02 camry's battery, and after finishing and starting it up it would
immediately shut back off. It will turn over fine and turn on, but after a few seconds
sputters out and shuts back off. Not sure how replacing the battery suddenly caused this
If it helps, I also just had an issue and had to replace my o2 sensor, not sure if that could
be any source of trouble.
Get some throttle body cleaner and clean your throttle body and IAC valve. If you need some instruction, just type in "Camry Idle Air Control valve cleaning" and several videos will come up. Check out this short video also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcDoxEF8X-U
Here's another short video. Not so much how to tear apart, but some good tech info. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2HSkY6abXs
