Q: car will stall/Hesitate after long use then idle high on 1995 Toyota Camry

what would happen is when im driving the car it there are times of me driving it were it would run fine for a while untill it starts to heat up then everytime i would give it some gas it would Hesitate for a second then accelerate while in drive when i would go to put the car in park it would idle up to about 2000 RPM and hold steady then slowly creep down to 1000 RPM then just die and when i would go to try and start it, it would just rev thats it and it would take like 10 or 20 mins for it to even attempt to start again but when it does start it sounds like only 2 or 3 of the cylinders are firing untill i gas it up and then they all start firing again and its just a cycle of me getting the car started and it just dieing untill its had a chance to cool off or take a break... idk if its a faulty Distributor cap or i got a sensor on the throttle body going out anyone give me any sort of clue :/ please

What have you actually visually inspected so far ? If you've replaced any parts (especially plugs , cap ,rotor , and wires )I hope you got Toyota parts!. When yo've inspected the plugs ,air filter etc. ( and keep track of which cyl.the plugs come out of #4 by dist.).reply with info.Personally own one , now with 290,000 on it and still going strong- only toyota parts!
