Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Loss of power on acceleration from a stop

I have a 1996 Camry LE V6 (Sedan) with about 108,000 miles. This car is great. But lately, the car seems to struggle to get into the first couple of gears. It doesn't do it all the time. If I "ease" the gas pedal, most of the time it won't do it and the car works fine. But if I punch it (you know, like to get out in traffic, like, as if turning right), it boggs down slightly and struggles and then more gas pedal needs to be applied. The car works through it and once it gets up to the higher gear/higher speed, the car runs beautiful! But I don't like this, any suggestions? Is it a transmission thing, fuel injections, a fuel pump thing? I'm racking my brain, I need help! You tell me!? (thank you)

    I have a 99 Toyota Camry and it is slow accelerating and seems to be a little hesitant when taking off from a stop. I was coming up a hill and it seemed to be having a hard time. The check engine light came on and went off and the car ran great. Any suggestions?

1994 Toyota Camry LE V6 Overheating, Steaming Engine--Blown Head Gasket??


It is best to be systematic about this. It could be either the water loss or the overheating which is the basic cause, either one could come first.

- there is a test for combustion gases in the water jacket, from a blown head gasket. This will very quickly cause overheating, and the excess pressure will blow the water out the overflow reservoir. If the car has already overheated and died, this is unfortunately quite likely

- the temperature sensor in the block may have failed. This will prevent the fans from running when the engine overheats, and you can see this. The fans are not driven by a belt. P68....

- the thermostat may have stuck closed. You will have to get it out and test it, but this is not difficult. See p328

- this model of Camry has a plastic top tank to the radiator, which eventually cracks. Look there carefully.

- it may be that a radiator hose has gone soft and closed up. Check they are allowing good coolant flow.

- it could be that in a car this age that the radiator has silted up and is not allowing coolant through. Disconnect the top and bottom radiator hoses, when cool, and run water through from a garden hose to get some idea about that.

My friends 1995 toyota camry v6 le seems to have an accelaration issue. The vehicle hesitate on accelarating when the gas is pedal is deprressed so the car jerks a little when you are accelerating from a...


There is a variety of causes possible:

- spark plugs fouled or worn (likely after about 50000 km)
- low fuel pressure (maybe)
- ignition timing not correct (an ECU problem, is there any check engine light?)
- air leak into the intake manifold (the most likely)

These engines develop a split in the big hose from the air cleaner to the air flow body. Look for that first.

1992 toyota camry v6 le boggs down on acceleration


It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. Your car should normally idle at about 700-750 RPM. You said that yours was at about 1000-1500, that is waaay to high. If you have a leak somewhere in the system the car will draw in extra air and it will want to idle much higher and will also be very erratic and hard to drive.
