SOURCE: lurching at low speed take off

I would start by cleaning the inside of the Mass Air Flow sensor, dirt gets on the sensor element from the air going through and causes these kinds of problems, a company called CRC makes the spray cleaner for MAF's, any good auto parts store will have it, the MAF is located in the air intake hose to the engine. Another thing to check is the throttle valve and air bypass idle speed control valve for sludge, use the following procedure I have written to perform this.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

put a jumper wire between the bottom two pins in the plug for the throttle position sensor, if it idles down you need to replace the idle throttle position sensor

Toyota camry 92. when i pump my gas the engine slowly stops.. this happens suddenly once in a while not always.. i chenged fuel pump, plugs, sensor, chekd distributor, chekd controller.. washed my fuel...

This symptom indicates that there is not a correct ratio of air to fuel ratio of 14.6. When more gas is given, there must be more air available to make up the golden ratio of 14.6 to have good mixture for good combustions. You already check for fuel supply, the next thing is to check the air supply. Check out air filter, clean the throttle valve, Air mass flow controller. If all of these didn't make an improvement then the last thing is the Fuel distribution calibration. Cheers.

How slow do you have to go to have the car stop on you and is it turning left or right and what RPM is the engine idleing at when hot /and cold,and what rpm is it doing turning Left/right,
The battery light will show every time the engine gets below 100rpm ,So recheck the whole lot and let me know the whole information ASAP Ron

1995 Toyota Camry v6 wont start after running out of gas & refueling

the electric fuel pump inside the tank needs fuel to cool itself. if you ran out of gas and tried to start several times it is possible to burn out the motor. also you will **** all the dirt inside the tank when this happens. either you have to replace the pump or you have clogged the filter

My Toyota Camry won't start

your engine overheated and cylinder head might be warped, in some cases replacing cylinder head gasket works but then if the warpage is too much, you have to get a new cylinder head.

91 Camry surging

You maybe need to adjust the idle speed, on top of the intake manifold, near where it says EFI, there a small black rubber plug, pull it out, turn off everything in the car, then turn the screw in where the plug was to change the idle speed. Or it could be that you need a new Idle Control Valve

91 camry starts and shuts off when put in drive or reverse

I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.
