Exclamation 2011 Toyota Camry LE please help!

Alright! So Iím having issues, and I donít know where to start. My RPM keeps jumping when itís lower than 2000. Thereís also a loud rattling noise, and the headlights dim when it jumps. When itís over 2000 then itís perfectly fine. The check engine light is on, and when Iím coming to a stop the engine stalls with the oil and battery light coming on (though not on every stop). Any ideas?

This appears to be an electrical problem. This being low electrical voltage or currant available from the alternator below 2000 RPM.
This could cause your issues of engine stall, dim lights, RPM jump and even check light on.

Find out what is causing the rattle! Use a length of hose as a stethoscope. Search in the area of the alternator which looks like the part in the link below. Location is passengers side, front of engine.


If you are not up to the task, have a mechanic check alternator for proper operation and noise.
