Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
I had a similar problem. Took it to Toyota agent found 2 problems. 1. the throttle position potentiometer was faulty. 2 the crankcase ventillation valve position potentiometer was faulty. They quoted approx $860 to fix. I went to the local library and read the workshop manual details. No.1 was fixed by carefully drilling a very small hole in the side of the sealed throttle position potentiometer and squirting a bit of RP7 lube/cleaner in the hole. This cleans the carbon surface of the potentiometer. Cover the hole with a bit of glue. I could not solve the other problem and went back to them. They tested it again and wanted to sell me another with a large aluminium casting attached for around $450. I went to Toyota spares and was able to purchase just a new pot for approx $50 (similar device in a hobby shop is around $1.75). which was very expensive for a device such as this. This did fix the problem. They charged me $20 for final test. All up, $70 was much better than $860. They will rip you off if you are not alert.
Am having trouble with reverse gear, very weak at first start in the morning, ok after that. No problems with all other gears.
