Default 95 Camry Stalling Problem

Hello, My Mother has a 1995 Camry with 64000 miles that has a stalling
issue. After driving at 50-55 mph for a few minutes when you slow down the
engine "Hicups" and then wants to die completely and usually does. It
always starts back immediately. She has taken it to 2 mechanics and the
Toyota dealership here in town. First the ISC valve was cleaned, then
replaced with a used part. Didn't work. Then she was told it was the
battery cable and that was replaced. Last but not least Toyota said it was
"definately" the distributor and that was replaced. Still doing the same
thing. They say now to change it again, that we must have gotten a
defective part. She is getting frustrated spending $ after $. She just
retired so I hate to see her strap herself down with a new car payment.
This happens quite often but not everytime. Have you guys ever heard of
this and if so any ideas? Appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks!

Gal

Does it happen when humid or after a rain after it just warms up, and
then it could be normal after an hour, then it could be the coil, was
the coil replaced.

Thanks for the reply. I just know the complete distributor was replaced. Is
that the coil? It happens in any climate condition, it's not particular.
My father is putting another distributor on it now to determine if it was
a defective part. Hate to part with a 64000 mile Camry but I understand
her frustrations.

inho the '95 Camry with 64,000 miles is one of the best cars you'll
find.
Sounds like the mechanics have already taken too much money from her.
Try to find someone who can follow the procedures in the factory
service manual for troubleshooting.
There are specific tests for each item in the distributor, pick up coil
resistances, etc.
There are flow charts in the manual that allow the mechanic to trouble
shoot symptoms by following step by step.
You can find the manuals online.
Check the engine section, under ignition and you will see the
procedures for testing.
Sounds like you've got a component that fails when warmed up to
operating temperature.
One possibility might be that the coolant temperature sensor is
malfunctioning, causing the engine computer to supply the wrong fuel
mixture at idle.
This would be an inexpensive solution and save a great car.
Properly maintained, that year lasts forever.
However, you need to find the right service personnel.
I know of no other field where you pay for ineffective work - impelled
me to learn to do all my own service on the car.
You can find the Factory Service Manuals for your car online here:

Thank you Daniel. I have printed off the ignition manual and will pass it
along to my father this evening. (They are divorced but he is trying to
help ) Maybe the answer is in there somewhere.
Really appreciate your time!

The coil is seperate from the distributor, Replacing it makes no sence
to me as it is mechanical. Your problem could be fuel related or
something else, but the coils are known issues.

I had a similar problem but with a Ford Escort. It'd stall when I
slowed down and depressed the clutch. Turned out it was the EGR valve.

Hope that's of some help.
