Default Stalling problem!!

Hey Guys,

I have been in hell the past 3 weeks. My 08 Scion tc (101K miles) has been stalling whenever i'm coming to stop (even on neutral).
I took it to 3 mechanics and the DEALERSHIP! and no one can figure out what's wrong. They have been throwing tests and parts on it. I can't afford anymore of this non sense and need someone's advice. If you guys can please help.

Tests done:
Vacuum Test
Smoke Test
Battery & Alternator Test

All good!

Services done:
New Spark Plugs
New PCV Valve
NEW Throttle body ($600 job) & gasket
Mass air flow sensor cleaned

I just had this happen to me. 2005 Scion tC. 125,000 miles. Stalling at stop signs, lights and 'check engine' light would come on periodically.

Work done:

April 14, 2018

Mileage 125,293

R.O.# 11007



****Drove car off their lot and immediately turned around because it was stalling at light and 'check engine' light came on again. They then replaced a wire that had burned thru the insulation and the car has NEVER run better. They told me the name of the part, but didn't write it down anywhere. I will get that information and send that along to you. I believe that the new plugs helped but the replacement of this burned out wire seemed to be the main cause of the stalling. They also said buying gas at Sam's and grocery stores contains water, which ruins the engine. Truly honest people I dealt with. They replaced that wire free of charge because they missed it during the diagnosis. I am retired and count on the honesty of people I deal with not to gouge me due to living on a fixed income.

Hope this helps!
