CAN'T STAY IDLE.

2002 Toyota Camry • V6 Automatic • 181,000 miles

I have a 2002 Toyota Camry LE V6. One night I was driving it and the car shut off on me. At first I thought it was the alternator, but I got it tested and it was fine. So then I thought it was the battery and I bought a new battery. That seemed to work at first, but then when I started to drive it the car shut off on me again, but this time when I started it up it would come on, but it couldn't stay on unless I pushed the gas pedal and if I went idle the car would turn off. So basically, the car can start up, but it can't stay idle without me pushing the gas pedal.

Clean the throttle plate on both sides with choke cleaner and iac hole. Then check fuel pressure with a gauge autoparts rent them.
