Car specs: 199 Toyota Camry LE 4 cyl 2.2 L, 101K miles. The problem is after car has been running for about 20-30 minutes the car stalls out completely ( usually on the highway which makes it a dangerous problem ) with the check engine light coming on. When you try to start the car back up it starts but dies instantly unless you keep your foot on the gas. Once you let the car sit for an hour or two the car starts normally and idles fine without having to keep your foot on the gas. About 12-18 hours after non use the check engine light goes back off and the car appears to run fine until the next incident. Only common factors that ocurr when the problem starts happening is that it is at night so it is colder than normal and the heat is on and sometimes on the highest setting. Took it to a mechanic who ran codes and was sure the ignition coil was bad ; replaced this. Problem still reocurrs, not sure if somthing is killing the igition coil or if my mechanic is just misdiagnosing the problem. Not happy with the mechanic since I'm 236 bucks into this with no resolution of the problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :Cry:
