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

What was the piece you had to get fixed? I have a 2015 tC and have been having this problem for a while now, stalling while slowing down to come to a stop, even sometimes when I'm turning into parking lots, even if I throw the car in neutral itll still stall. Struggles around 1000rpm, dips down to 500rpm then just stalls out.
Took it to the dealership, they said they didnt know, and that my clutch was bad, and replacing the clutch would fix my problem, ended up paying 3500$ CAN to replace my clutch, and yet I still have the same issue as before. Still stalls.
Check your battery and alternator. Try to clean the MAF and throttle body.
