Default 99 Camry Stalls

Hi Ppl,
I have a 99 camry LE which has 90,000 miles on it. It runs great except
once in a while it stalls. it stalled once when i was in a stop light and
another time when i was making a right turn. but the car starts back
immediately and drives very smoothly. I am not sure what the problem is. I
took it to a auto shop and did a computer diagnostic but then that didnt
show up any problem and the car mechanic gave me an invoice for $250
telling me i have to change my plugs, clean my throttle plate and fuel
injectors. Basically even the guys in the auto shop didnt know what the
problem was exactly! I am not sure what to do!
I already checked the air filter and thats clean!!
this doesnt happen very frequently...just abt 2-3 times in 1000 miles!!
can somebody help me?
Thanks,
Venky

i'm no mechanic, but i'd try a tune up and after that add some fuel injector
cleaner to a fresh load of gas. i have a '99LE also w/ about 140k on it and
have never had a single problem. the car had it's first tune up at about
115k and a fresh timing belt and water pump installed around the same time.
one thing i have learned over the years(w/ all my cars) is to try not to run
the fuel level below a 1/4 tank very often.
