My car had a recall completed on the ecm in 2011. Now in 2018 my ecm is shorting out causing my engine to shut off while I am driving. In order to start up the engine again I have to pull over, put the car in park and turn the key again. One time this happened while I was stopped. The other time this happened while I was driving. Toyota reported that because the recall had already been completed there was nothing they could do and the repair had to be completed at my expense. The only way to make my car safe to drive again is to have a new ecm installed.

I have attempted for the last 14 months to get a noise fixed when my car starts up. I have made 10 repair efforts with Toyota and Toyota corporate. I have filed lemon law on my car and Toyota has sent me letters twice stating they have reviewed my repair orders, inspected the car, and it is working as designed. While the letters are being sent to me I have open appointments to get the car repaired for this issue. I called the Toyota field rep and he stated that my case is closed because they do not know what is wrong with my car. The noise happens when starting the car after it has been sitting for at least 20 minutes. It sounds like something is broken inside the engine. On the last trip to the dealership Toyota replaced the starter on my car and it did not resolve the issue. I am very concerned that something is wrong with the engine itself in my car since the starter has been replaced. I am afraid my car is going to stall out on me while driving causing me to have an accident. I have recorded sounds of the noise occurring and I would like to submit them when I am contacted.

While I was driving the car started stalling really bad and losing power, the engine light came up and I couldn't speed more than twenty five miles, because the car started trying to shut off on me in the middle of the street again. I took the car to get checked out and the troubleshooting codes came out as being the ignition coils due to the engine harness being bad, (difficult to believe I said ), cables don't go bad like that in florida.

I was driving at 70 mph on the interstate when the car stalled out. We were able to pull to the side of the road luckily. It did start again but stalled again if I went over 40 mph. I had replaced the transmission the week before and had a transmission place check it out. They said the transmission is fine and that the error code is for the ecm. I had taken the care back to my transmission place (certified transmission in bellevue ne. ) and he had the same answer for me. I attempted to work with Toyota on this through their customer complaint dept. They referred me to nick anderson (customer care manager) at bellevue Toyota. He didn't care that the car is unsafe to drive or that it stalled on us going 70 mph on the interstate. All he cared about is that the care is over miles on the extended warranty (80,000) and he wouldn't do anything for me at all. I believe in companies that back there product and I no longer believe in Toyota. I have found out that there is a very strong chance that the reason I had to replace the transmission on this auto is because of the ecm that was misdiagnosed as transmission issues. I believe this to be true because I am having the same stalling issues that I had before the new transmission was put in. I feel that Toyota should at the very least repair/replace the faulty ecm at no additional cost to me.

I bought a used 2011 Toyota Corolla from beaver Toyota in santa fe, new mexico in September 2012. From the beginning I noticed a slight hesitation while driving. It felt like all of a sudden the car would slow down for just a couple of seconds, like a delay of some kind. I took it to the dealer and they felt nothing. It kept happening and I took it back and they drove and felt nothing. Finally, I was driving back from church in the daytime, thank god, and it just stalled like someone has just unplugged it (and its not electric) and all the engine lights came on and I made it to the emergency lane scared to death. I called aaa and they said let it sit for few minutes and try again and it started right up. He suggested I drive to a service station but it was Sunday and no one was open. I went into the dealer later that week and they didn't feel anything, no hesitation at all. I kept feeling it and my roommate drove it once thought she felt something. Took to back again and sat 5 hours while they ran diagnostics and said it showed nothing. They did replace a bolt I noticed the head had broken off on the license plate . . . Just mentioned in passing & that was $110 because the service rep said they had to drill thru the back plate to remove and put in new one! I would have never agreed to that. I looked on line and found an indpendant Toyota authorized repair shop that had great reviews and went there. Toy automan. They took me in at my appt time, one hour later the nice owner came out and handed me a release from Toyota dated September 6, 2011 that stated 2011 Corollas may exhibit a "monetary rpm decrease above 40 mph and/or reduced engine braking". I'm so tired of going into this dealer and getting nowhere. They had to know about this notice from Toyota and I must be naive realizing that a Toyota service dept. Would put a customer in danger for money. Help!.

When I stopped at a stop sign, it stalled and has done so on several more occasions since.

I just bought the car on 8/31/11 from a car dealer.

Car suddenly stalls, sometimes while at a stop but has happened when moving. Won't start for a little while then will start. Has happened 3-4 times in the past 5 months.
My 2004 Toyota Corolla suddenly had engine problems while driving, making a horrible metallic clanking as the car stalled. After having it towed to the nearest repair facility, the diagnosis was that pieces of the engine literally broke apart as if the metal was fatigued. The mechanic could not explain how this happened with only 117,000 miles on the car. It took over a month to find a used engine and scrape together the money needed for repairs. The entire engine was replaced, for a total of $2500. I was also forced to rent a car during this time, and the car rental amount is around $600.
I have a 2006 Corolla sport with 52,000 miles on it. Yesterday in my way home it stalled in the middle of the traffic. The car was towed to the nearest dealership. The service manager called me today stating that the computer or ecm had to be replaced. According to NHTSA action number : pe09054 NHTSA recall campaign number : n/a make / models : model/build years: Toyota / Corolla 2006 Toyota / Corolla matrix 2006 wondering how many owners of this type of vehicle had same problems, yet Toyota has not issue a recall to fix these issues. Serious accidents could happen if these issues are not addressed in timely manner.
On August 11, 2010, while driving our 2007 Toyota Corolla at about 40 mph the engine suddenly stopped running. We coasted and were able to get pulled off the road safely. The engine would not restart. We called our Toyota dealer service department and explained what was going on. They said there was a problem with the computer in the 2007 Corollas and that was probably what we were experiencing. We were instructed to have the car towed to the dealer and if that was the case, I. E. , computer failure, the tow charge and the repair would be covered under the vehicle warranty, they would hold a service spot open for us that very day and it would be taken care of when we arrived. They quoted a repair time of about 1 hour. We had the car towed to the dealer. It was a computer failure. The repair was completed in about the stated time. If this had happened on the highway in a construction zone where both sides of the road are lined with concrete abutments and there is no place to pull off our outcome may have been very different. It is frightening to think what could have happened to us with a stalled car in a highway construction zone with no way to get out of the flow of traffic. I think the fact that the car can just stop running while being driven has been underplayed.
