Engine Stalling When Warm on Toyota Pickup

At higher mileages (125,000+) the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor may intermittently stop working, especially when the vehicle is fully warmed up. This can cause the engine to stall unexpectedly.

Stalls on warm starts, especially at higher altitudes. Will lift hood, let engine cool (10-30 minutes), and then engine starts fine. Engine does not idle rough, or stall at stop lights/signs.
