Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

problem #2

I loved my 99 Camry until last summer, it started stalling when warm and I was at a complete stop, seemed to be worse when the tank was low on fuel. When driving down the highway it would sometimes jerk like the gas flow to the engine stopped.

Then it started stalling when I was in motion, pulling up to a light, parking etc. My mechanic could never get the problem to repeat and he drove it like his own for a week. We decided to change the fuel pump and fuel pump strainer. Then it started accelerating randomly as well as stalling so we changed a part in the ignition that controlled the ideling.

I started getting gas at Esso and it stopped stalling, after about three months it started stalling again so I started using supreme that helped for a bit then the weather changed and my car started stalling again. I added Isoproponal to the gas and after I burned that tank all was well again for several months, then it started acting up again so I added more Isopropylyn and it has not helped.

I have spent over $1500.00 on my car and just want to sell it but need to solve this issue. I saw this reported in less detail with no comments so I am not the only one. Please if you have any idea let me know, I am desperate.

Camry LE

  • 36,000 miles

99 camry LE v6 stalls without warning at 60mph or at a light, you never know. I travel some bad freeways so i am giving myself an ulcer not knowing when it will stall and if im going to get rear ended. I've taken it to Toyota and they say there is nothing wrong with it. When I insist there is and what to do they shrug their shoulders. I've replaced the fuel pump EFI relay, and filters to no avail. If anyone has had this problem and knows what it is PLEASE share it with me. Thank you
