    I have a 93 camry tht I can't figure out. If you drive the car normaly it is fine. If you hammer on the car from a stop sign 1 city block and stop the damn thing wants to stall out and die. If it starts doin this you can shut the car off and it will start right back up and idle fine. I have tried new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel fiter, fuel pressure regulator, and a Toyota dealer told me I had a stuck egr valve so that was replaced also. I have no idea what else to try. I was also told by the dealer that it was a vacume leak. Good luck finding that, I tried the carb cleaner trick with no luck.

    Definitely sounds like it would be a vacuum leak causing the problem, any garage with a smoke tester should be able to identify the leak.

    This is what most of them look like. Basically it get hooked into a vacuum line while the engine is not running and pushes "smoke"(an oil based liquid) through the system and you will be able to identify the area of the vacuum leak
