From Namibia. My Toyota RAV4 1994 model automatic sometimes

Customer Question

Customer: Hi I am Dawid Bisschoff from Namibia. My Toyota RAV4 1994 model automatic sometimes when I slow down at a traffic light the revs goes low, the engine light comes on and the vehicle stalls. Sometimes I can just restart it immediately, but at stages I am struggling to start it - engine turns but it wont start. Local agents are struggling to operate their diagnostics meter to retrieve any error codes. My RAV's engine is a 3S-FE engine and the VIN is: SXA10-10-0030272. I will appreciate any help you can give me to identify the possible culprit. Thanks and regards
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The info sent is a=basically all I have. If there is anything I can look for and send it to you please let me know. Dawid
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $20) to post your type of question to Toyota Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Most likely the fuel pressure is dropping out either because of a clogged fuel filter or a faulty fuel pump, a fuel pressure test would confirm the issue. Please RATE my service a 3 or above, if for some reason you can not pleas ASK me another question, I will continue to answer your questions, even after rating is given ,until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
