It sounds like the fuel pump may be bad or the filter is plugged. Have you inspected the fuel filter?

Does the car start right back up after it dies?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago

Toyota Mechanic: Marty, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

Are you able to run a fuel pressure test to see if it is losing fuel pressure when it dies?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
no would have to get a guage for the fuel rail but at the pump is 39 psi
Toyota Mechanic: Marty, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

You need to figure out if you are losing spark or fuel when it dies. When it starts to die, can you spray a little carb spray into the air intake to see if it will try to stay running?

I meant "starting spray" or ether.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
out of starting spray guess we will have to try this tommrow
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
need to go shoppen any clue what could be the problem?
Toyota Mechanic: Marty, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

Once we determine if we are losing spark or fuel we can look at the possibilities. If you can keep it running on the ether we know we have a fuel problem.
