Question about Cars & Trucks
Always check the simple things first. For example it could easily be one of the HT spark plug leads not plugged into one of the socket(either plug side or other side)It could also be a damaged HT lead sparking to ground somewhere where it passes close the the engine. This type of fault is typically a clicking or tapping noise which is only heard clearly when the engine is idling and hence quieter. Get a tthree foot length of tube or hose pipe, put one end close to your ear and start searching for the exact spot where noise out on the engine. This is quite an accurate way to identify engine noise location.

First I suggest a full tune up, including air and fuel filters. If you have already taken care of this, then you maybe overloading or flooding your engine with fuel. If the problem seems worse when you first start the car in the morning and gets slightly better as it warms up then you may have a bad coolant temperature sensor. This is about a $30 part. This sensor adjusts the amount of fuel pumped through your injectors to make up for cold temps much like choking an older vehicle. If it goes out, it sends the ECM a signal that the temp is negative 27 f and so it dumps all the fuel it can on the fire to compensate. A good indicator of this would be poor fuel milage, with this car you should be getting between 27 and 32 mpg. Most mechanics charge about 60 to 90 bucks to change this part.

The starter has two L-shape copper plates. These copper plates get used every time you start the car. After certain period of time the plates are so thin that no contact is made. So the car doesn't start. So your copper plates could be worn out. I had my replaced. And the problem is gone. If you know a good mechanic, you'll probably get fix for less than $100.
It's a common problem on Camry. They wear out prematurely.

there are no adjustments that you can do. a dealer or someone that specializes in toyota is the only ones that can/should do an adj for you. If that really is the case.
