My car starts and idols (not well) but loses all power when i put it into gear and attempt to accelerate.

You may have mixed the plug wires around. If they are correct Check to see if exhaust is coming out of the tailpipe. I suspect a clogged cat converter. If it just started coin this since you worked on the vehicle it most likely is something you have done incorrectly. Whether it be wrong brand/type of sparkplug used to the wrong gap on the plugs.

When I first start my 2005 Camry and put it in gear (fwd) when I press the gas it makes a horrible sound like the fan is hitting something? It doesn't do this once the engine is warmed up? H

I believe something is loose or broken around your exhaust, either a heat shield, an exhaust mount, or a baffle in the front muffler. To inspect this safely you will need a set of good wheel ramps, and wriggle around underneath. If you are unsure about checking this, take it to a muffler shop or an auto mech.

1999 Toyota Camry grey smoke from exhaust

If it is grey smoke it sounds like steam which sounds like the cylnder head gasket is bust and needs replaced - if it has overheated then the worse case sceanrio is that the cylnder head may need reground or replaced. If the "smoke" is black then its burnuing oil and the seals are bust - much bigger job and more $'s.

White smoke coming from tailpipe? Slight knocking noise. 99 Camry.

White smoke or steam? Smoke is oil buring and steam is coolant steaming. If this is steam, you have a blown head gasket...if oil, it could be either a oil ring problem or a valve seal problem.

I have a toyota camry 2003 if i let it set for a

What color is the smoke ?
Greyish means coolant is leaking into cylinders( Bad Head gasket)
Bluish means oil is leaking into the cylinders
Black means car is running rich.
If greyish look at coolant resivoir for traces of oil ( usually milky kind of substance) could be tranny fluid or motor oil mixing with coolant depending on whether the vehicle is an automatic and if so is the ATF cooler leaking.
keep me posted Good Luck
