2002 camry stalling
My 02 Camry is hard to start, it will only take
a light gas pedal. If u lightly press gas it
sputters alittle at first will eventually get up
to speed and run 70 all day smooth.but if
you give too much gas it won't take it and
cuts out,but if u lighten ur foot to almost
none it will take it.I replaced fuel pump
strainer/filter,inside of tank is clean.my
friend scanned it and the only code says
the oxygen sensor on top is bad.so what
What Engine is in this vehicle? What is the Code ID. Need the full letter and number. The proper Scan Tool should be able to read this vehicles Data Stream......which would verify O2 sensor operations. I would be inclined to follow the code(s).
This is a common issue with many people. Never seems to be the same fix twice. Either people never figure it out or they end up changing every part in the car. I always suggest the inexpensive avenues first. Buy a can of throttle body cleaner and a can of MAF sensor cleaner. Remove the black intake hose from the throttle body and spray down the inside. Remove idle air control valve and clean that as well. Remove MAF and spray down the contacts. Then remove your EGR and clean any carbon out of it with the throttle spray. See if that cures the stalling issue. Post back with results. If no change, I would start with the bad O2 sensor. If no change, I would then replace the TPS. Check Youtube for instructional videos on throttle body cleaning and MAF cleaning if you're unfamiliar.
