Have you tried adjusting the idle?

even if i have the idle higher than its supposed to be it still turns off.


It might be you clutch postion sensor.

is this tranmission related? i have a automatic transmission.


Ok nevermind I thought it was a manual. It could be debri in with the distirbutor or pour spacing, it could be a weak or discharged battery, it could be a weak alternator, clogged air filter, or bad spark plugs and wires. Maybe air pressure sensor, cam postion sensor or crank postion sensor.


check all your sensor ive done that even with just my airbox senser barely being unpluged

ok i finally figured out what the problem is. it seems there was a short circuit in the main computer box located underneath the dashboard. i got the computer rebuilt because you cannot buy them new and now it works like a charm...thanks for everyones help....

I have a 1995 Toyota Tacoma and we have a new battery, new alternator and still while driving it will shut off like its not getting charge? We have no clue what it could be.. HELP
