    Are you referring to the delay from the time the gas peddle hits the floor till the feeling of acceleration?  If so this most likely  due to the shift settings. I've heard that it is to extend drivetrain life by reducing some of the forces in the transmission (knocking or hammering).
    If that is not what you were referring too please describe the pulling back. cheers

Have you had a tune up recently? air filter, fuel filter, cap, rotor, spark plugs. Maybe bad gas " water in the fuel " Check fuel system, ignition sytem, air system. Get a diagnostic test performed at a reputable shop.

How do I fix Toyota camry accelerating issue?


Check the Fluid Level of your Transmission, You could also have worn clutches but I would start with the Transmission Fluid Level. Be VERY CAUTIOUS to use the Correct Transmission Fluid or you will damage your transmission and cause you quite the headache.

My car hesitates while shifting sometimes. when I hit the gas, my RPM's will go up, then they will usually drop right back down even if I am accellerating. sometimes, it doesn't even go into the right...


Much of the shifting in today's vehicles is done using various sensors and it seems some of them are off. You may need to take it to a shop for testing.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck

When accelerating from a stop, car lurches when shifting gears


On a lot of vehicles there is a transmission speed sensor that receives data that tells it how fast the car is going and shifts accordingly. If this sensor is bad the transmission can't function properly. I would have this checked, they are not that terribly expensive, and not that hard to change on most vehicles. Hope this helps.
