Default Camry issues

I have a 95 camry 4cyl when its cold it starts up and runs fine but as soon as it warms up it shuts off and takes awhile for it to start again to only die after driving 20 feet. i need help figuring out what it is

Try cleaning the IAC valve.

An internet search on "cleaning IAC valve 5SFE" (engine model) should produce hits on how to do this.

i cleaned it and nothing. when it warms up and is at a low rpm it sputters and stalls out if i keep it revved up to around 2-3k rpm it runs fine but as soon as you let it get below it starts sputtering

Sometimes the engine coolant temp sensor for the computer fails.

Sensor should have
0.3K ohms resistance at 176F
0.6K at 140F
2.5K at 68F.
