Question about 1995 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Camry Idles high for a bit at start-up, and now accelerates in a jerky way

Car starts and runs at high idle for a few minutes until it comes down, though I live in tropics. Now when I step on the gas even mildly, the car seems to hiccup and then to speed up in a jerky way. If I step on the gas very slowly it seems to not have this problem?

    Would the fuel filter affect the car on the freeway...the problem I am having is only from a stop...once going on at 20-30 MPH or better there is no problem??? In addition, if you rev the car it sounds very good, and the jerkyness is not present in reverse? Transmission?

You need to replace the coolant temperature sensor. It tells the computer that your car needs a high idle. As far as your running, you got some water displaced in your system. Change out the fuel filter, and pour a can of "Seafoam" in the tank. It will take a few miles, but that should fix your problem.

2002 escape 3.0 idle fluctuates and misfires when driving


No such thing as a tune-up

All you did was replace spark plugs which should be
done every 3 years

Oxygen Sensors get replaced at 100,000 miles which you
also did

You most likely have an intake gasket leak,smoke test
the entire Evap System & Engine

You also are have bad igniton coils

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies


I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?
