Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Car hesitation My car sometimes hesitates for about 2 seconds (doesn't want to go) when I put my foot on the gas after being stopped at a light or stop sign. After the hesitation it suddenly spurts and runs normal. This just started to happen the last week and a half.

    only doing city driving, the car hesitates after a stop. I press the gas pedal and get no power. After pumping gently a few times, it finally kicks in. This doesn't happen all the time. I've had plugs replaced, fuel filter and TPS switch and its still hesitating, why?

I have observed and repaired this condition several times. What you may have is a dirty throttle plate. To correct this condition, remove the tube from the air filter box that hooks to the intake manifold. After removing the tube, you will see a circular hole with a circular metal disc. This disc is the throttle plate. Manually open it & inspect for black gunk/carbon buildup. If it is very dirty, this is def your problem. Clean it real good with off of the shelf carb cleaner from you local parts store.
I hope that this eliminates your issue.

Car hesitates when first accelerating


Sound's like you might be having a sticking EGR valve. The EGR valve is located on the drivers rear of the engine. Sometimes hesitation is caused by adjustment problems in the TPS (Throttle position sensor). You may have to have a shop put it on the engine analyzer. Hope this helps. Good luck!

If you own a 2004, 2005, 2006 or 2007 Toyota Corolla and your car hesitates when you accelerate or it hesitates when driving, you should try the solution described here. Below is a list of the behavior your car may show that tells that you should try this procedure before going to a mechanic or repair shop.
  • The accelerator is slightly pressed while the car is running and it slightly jitters or hesitates
  • After completely stopping the car (a red light for example), it hesitates when you accelerate to continue driving
  • Engine power is below the usual level
  • Sometimes check engine light turns on
You should know that while those problems can be caused by several issues, including low quality or altered fuel or even a loosely tighten fuel cap, the most common cause is a dirty MAF flow meter sensor.
The MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow Meter Sensor) is in charge of detecting how much air (in mass, not volume) is coming in to the engine, so the ecm computer can calculate the amount of fuel to be injected.
Some times this sensor gets contaminated by lots of microscopic debris that scape the air filter and accumulate on its sensing parts over time. The resulting effect is that the MAF flow meter sensor gets less "sensible" and detects less air than it is currently entering the engine. The reaction of the ecm computer will be to inject less fuel to keep the air fuel balance, taking as reference the false reading of the MAF flow meter sensor. This will produce a too-lean mixture, which is responsible of the hesitation, the loss in power and the check engine light.
If your car engine, besides the hesitation, is also producing knocking or engine pinging at high loads, like when going up through a hill, it is attributed to this too-lean condition.
Before going to an auto parts store or to a mechanic to fix the problem, you should try fixing it your self. If the problem is a dirty MAF flow meter sensor, the solution is to clean it, plain and simple. That may save you some money that a mechanic will charge for cleaning it (you could do the same) or for replacing the part when most of the times it is not damaged, just dirty or contaminated
