Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

The car warms up and then starts sputtering and bucking

The car starts and idles okay until it warms up, after about 58 miles, then it starts bucking and sputtering like lack of power or fuel. What do you think? Advance Auto had it on their code reader and it said left bank too lean and transmission sensor starting to go bad. What exactly does this mean? It is a 1996 Toyota Camry 2.2ltr. engine, 4 cylinder engine, automatic transmission.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

When your engine is running lean that means it's not getting enough fuel.So if it's one side (or bank) of the motor then possibly you have an injector problem on that side.You'll want to get a fuel pressure test to see if the fuel system pressure is up to specifications.Then get the injectors tested.These tests are simple and realitivly cheap.

Bucking while idling


You want to check your charging system. Take a reading at the battery and see what you get. it should be 13.5-14 volts. Check the volts at the cables. with the battery hook up take a reading at the cables. if there is a big difference between the cables and the battery then you need to clean and tighten your cables. If the volts are less then I said before then you need to have your alternator checked.
