Will not idle unless my foot is on the gas. Has new battery, new sparkplugs. Not a fix, but temporary solution- "toe" the gas pedal and use the other foot to work the brake, after a short time, it runs by itself just fine. Still, I have no idea what's wrong with my car!

RAV4 2001: Ignition turns on, engine runs for 20-30 seconds, then cuts off. Puzzle solved. No codes. Problem not in the fuel system or engine because engine runs. Problem was in the computer because it not sending directive to fuel pump to pump gas to the engine. Also not having codes come up indicates computer not functioning. (During heavy, bad thunderstorm, I felt a charge go through the vehicle. It must not have been a direct hit because vehicle was still running. Electricity arc-ed onto the car from somewhere. Eventually, this charge cause the computer to malfunction, die.) I replaced the computer and car works fine.

Had error codes for the crankshaft position sensor. I replaced that and still does not stay running or idle

Starts, runs for about 30 seconds and chokes off. Just replaced the fuel pump so I know it's not that.

I had the problem where car would start and run for 3-4 seconds. Computer module was shutting the engine off due to faulty ignition coil on number 3 cylinder. However turns out the #3 spark plug tube was full of engine oil which was shorting out the wire to coil. Had to put new gaskets on the cylinder head cover to keep oil out of spark plug tube.

Car starts, but idles up and down. Then just quits. When I try and give it gas it quits running. Fuel filter,fuel pump, spark plugs and wires were all changed.
