Idle Issues

I have a 2.7L 1995 Tacoma with 470, 000 miles on it ( bought it brand new ). I've been having idle issues for months now. Starts up fine and idles smooth. Then, I drive a short distance and when I stop the engine starts to sputter and sometimes stop. Other times it starts to sputter and them smooths out. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Some likely culprits are the TPS, IACV, and coolant temp sensor. Get a decent repair manual and check those out.

I'm gonna guess EGR valve; I think you got your monies worth out of that one. Check for dry rotted or broken vacuum lines, too. Clean the MAF sensor. If the O2 sensor has more than say 150k might be an idea to change that, too. 480k; nice.

Thanks everyone! I'll follow your suggestions. Love my Tacoma. Just trying to reach that 500,000 mile mark. Then send it to retirement....maybe.
