Celica Stalling after oil and air filter change Sign In

I just had my oil changed and air filter changed. After I picked my car up from the shop it stalled 4 times within an hour. (stalled when gas was not being pressed... usually while braking)

I am about to take it back to the shop, but wanted to ask here if any one has any light bulbs about it.

Bring it back and see if they forgot to plug something back in when the took the air filter out.

Thanks! They said the lip of the air filter was caught in the case allowing extra air to get in. They said they fixed it, and so far so good. (I have only made the 5-10 minute home so far)

How bad is it that some unfiltered air got in my engine?

Unless you were in some outrageous dust storm not much trouble really. Best thing was to fix that right away anyway,

I think they got a little creative with the story to cover up what they really left off. Air leaking at the air filter would have no effect at all on engine performance. It would have to be something between the MAF and the throttle body.
