My car died while idling.

(2003 Toyota Camry)
in Whittier, CA on May 17, 2012
I was at a stop light waiting to turn, so of course the car is idling, then it suddenly just dies. No check engine light or anything like that. This first happened a couple weeks ago and just today it did it again when I was pulling into the parking lot to park, going slow and trying to park. It starts right up again no problem. I just had a full tune up/prevenative maintenance done to this. It happened even before I had that done. What could it be?

Could have a fuel pump starting to go out. Have the pressure and volume checked. Cam or crank sensor intermittent problems?

Thank you for the response. I was thinking it would be either that or the alternator but with cars you just never know unfortunately. Thanks again!

Yes, good call. Have the alternator checked.
