Comment: Why Is My Engine Stalling After Replacing the Battery?
November 28, 2010, 05:03 AM
This info was really helpful! My '02 Camry just exhibited the exact problems described here. I'd just add the following for a *manual transmission* that worked for me: 1) Warm the engine 2) Hold in the clutch and press the gas until the engine goes to about ~3k rpms 3) Keeping the clutch in, take your foot off the gas so that the rpms drop*. 4) Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the idle is correct again. (Each time you do step 3, the idle will stay higher until it is back to normal.) * The first time I did this, the engine stalled and I restarted it. The second and third times, it almost stalled. I don't know if it helps to add a little gas to keep that from happening, but you can try that if all else fails. Hope that helps someone else running into this problem!
