Solenoid possibly, stalls when stopping, doesn't want to shift up to go faster than 35-45 mph.. Problem started two years ago, and grew until car is undrivable
Car turns on, then stalls out. Will not stay on. Stalls out. Toyota dealership said it was ECM computer, the brain. Can't get codes, computer out. Who knows? ECM replaced August 2013, less than two years ago. Now I need another computer???
