'97 Stall Solved
I had this problem in Dec 2012. '97 LS 400 100,000 miles. Last time it stalled in traffic, I had it towed to the dealer. Seems it was the fuel pump. But, I also needed valve cover gaskets, spark plugs, hoses, etc. Then they saw the ignition cap rotor, crankshaft/camshaft issue. I realized a bit later while work was being done that I was due for 100,000 mile service anyway. I neglected to keep up with service as I should. I decided to have the timing belt kit included with everything else. Four main jobs in all. Total - $3,000.000. Could have been $4,000.00 other places. I should have never let myself get to the point where the car stalls while out and about. A real safety hazard. I was pinching pennies and letting the car ride on its good reputation. I learned my lesson - I hope.
