Default 1994 Camry dies after getting off highways

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forums, so forgive me if I posted on the wrong section or what not. Here is my issue, I have a 94 camry that I bought about one month ago. Changed a lot of parts, new ECM, new thermostat, new valve cover, new EGR solenoid, cleaned the EGR valve in and out. The car drives like a charm in the city/streets, everything works perfectly. But as soon as I go on the highway for about 10-15mns and get off of it, the car would start shaking a bit and the engine loses power, everything just shuts off completely. I have to let it cool off for about 10-15 and it drives fine again.

I'm suspecting a vaccum leak, or the catalyst converter. I changed the thermostat since the temperature gauge was staying at cold. This problem seems to be very common in camry's 92-96.

If anyone has a helpful input, I'd greatly appreciate it.

i would change your plugs and wires because if the insides of the wires are cracked full spark wont get to the cylinder when the engine gets hot.

techniec,

Just to let you know, this is a Chrysler PT Cruiser forum. It doesn't matter where you would post, the whole forum is about PT Cruisers. Although a car is a car and the problem your having could happen to ours, I don't recall anyone having the exact same problem. A search on the Internet brought up several different cars with similar problems.

Are you sure your car is doing that, Toyotas never break, at least that is what I am told on many forums

Per your problem, that is tough to diagnos. SO you can drive around town all the time but go on the highway and it loses power?? Any cell codes, I would start there. and go to a Camry forum, they might give you better advice/

Personally, I would sell the thing and buy a good PT Cruiser.

I thought Toyotas accelerate uncontrollably, not stalls
