    It started and it seemed to run fine then when I went to take
    Off and put it in gear it spudderd a little and almost died. The cel isn't on and I don't know where to start Im pretty sure it's a sensor but not sure which one.. Any help or suggestions would be

    See if the issue clears up. With no CEL, its hard to make an accurate guess.

    Right around 5,000 but I have reved it up like that before and it has never done anything like that, and just pulling out Of my driveway today It died when I just gave it a little gas to pull out.. Idk it's driving me nuts thinking about it and not being able to figure it out

    I'll try that plugs are cheap compared to all the sensors I couldn't believe how much all the sensors are.. What kind of plugs did u use? I heard iridium plugs don't work good in toyota's?

    id check the mass air flow sensor and check to make sure you dont have a sticky idle air control

    I did clean the MAF I heard about the idle control sensor doing that. Do u just use throttle body cleaner to clean that?

    first the easiest way to check it is keep your foot down on the gas and see if it dies, if you let go and it does it very well may be your IAC, id honestly get a tooth brush and rags and clean it with MAF cleaner or brake cleaner, but be wary of brake cleaner and plastic or sensors
