Car turns off after accelerating

  • 1 POST

Hi im pretty new to this forum but I found no other way of fixing my problem. I own a 1995 toyota camry 2.2 liter and ive it had for at least two years. Recently my car stopped working. Everytime I would turn it on and put in drive and accelarated it would turn off. So I kept trying until it finally turned off and never turned on again. Unfortunately im a student in college so I need my only car to get back and from school. So I panicked and put it into a shady mechanic shop. They had it for over a month now and cant find whats wrong with it. What I did notice was that the car kept burning out the EFI fuse everytime. I put in new fuses and was able to keep the car on but it didnt move and then later the EFI fuse burnt out again. I would like to know if anyone else has had the same problem and what could be causing the car to react that way.

Do you
have the same problem?

Have your heated oxygen sensor check a good place to start. EFI fuse blowing can be a nightmare to deal with, you need a competent electrician to find this problem. The EFI circuit is the main path through the engine control sensors.

Have the R/W wire going to the PCM for short to ground check.
