1998 toyota camry started jerking a bit and now

1998 toyota camry started jerking a bit a month ago and now seems to lose compression and then speed back up while driving. Have 122,000 miles, regular oil changes, had 1 tune up at 100,000. I thought it was the gas pedal but I don't think it is.

If your losing compression then I suggest doing a compression test and then following it up with a wet compression test to determine whether the problem is in the valves or pistons.
Wow one tune up in 122k miles jerking not really an ignition thing more like a fuel thing. If Compression test results are good then do a full tune up even replace coil packs or distributor ( which ever is applicable) and replace fuel filter.
These vehicles are not known for major engine problems (blown engines bad valves etc).
Big with transmission problems if its a 6 cylinder not the 4 cylinders.

The headlight switch is most likely the culprit. It operates a relay that actually turns on the headlights Look in the fuse box for a burned out fuse. If it is not burned then suspect the switch

Check the EFI main relay base in the relay block forward on the left fender well. On Camrys sometimes the base for this relay becomes faulty and gives intermittent connection. See here p279

Toyota 1996 camry check engine light on, Steering hard, engine off itself.. any idea?


The first thing to find out is what trouble code the car's computer is storing. The check engine light tells you that there is a code available to enable you to home in on the trouble.
If the car will not move, follow the procedure in here, p296, by using a short bit of wire to connect terminals TE1 and E1 in Relay Block 5 under the hood.

Then look up the trouble code.

Hi, my first recommendation would be to take the plugs out and visually inspect each one and check to make sure they are properly gapped, if they look fouled at all i would replace them without hesitation. try throwing a set of NGK plugs in the car to fix the misfires. other than that you may want to look at the wires. good luck joe

I have a 2004 toyota corolla le, just hit 100k. about 6 months ago i noticed it started losing oil but not dripping from the bottom. no sign of oil dripping. but i was filling up my oil about three quarts...


start by checking the pcv system, it may be pulling oil out of the crankcase, nest check the valve guides, if all seems good do a cylinder leak down test, you may have an internal problem

"car jerks/jumps"


These is because of the improper combustion, so you better check the air filter and the exhaust along with that you replace all the spark plugs

Losing power


Possible spark plugs or spark plug wires. Is your car 4 cylinder or v6? It's possible that there is moisture inside the distributor cap. If there is, dry it out and spray w40.
