Question about 1990 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

It suddenly started putting down the road very bad and the air filter looks clean...when I push the gas the acceleration would I changed the spark plugs and it drove better...sometimes at take off it messes up and sometimes at take off it does not mess up. Then I changed the spark plug wires, rotor, and distributor cap and now it will not start at all...first it clicked a little when trying to start it and now it makes no sound but the battery charge seems to go up and down when trying to start...nothing should be wrong with the battery.

Sounds like multiple things going on. The 1st is maybe something sticking with the throttle and why intermittent. Clean carb/throttle body. Make sure you installed everything correctly, sometimes the problem can be compounded with fixing attempts. If it was clicking and not cranking and now not clicking possibly the neutral safety switch is bad but it should still click which is the starter relay. Maybe wore it out trying to start it. It's not uncommon for other things to fail as a result of a failure. If it kept clicking I'd say definitely the NSS. Check your battery connection and get a terminal brush cleaning tool. I assume you mean by battery charge seems to go up and down you are using a multimeter. If it has a dead cell you would have this problem but maybe the connection to it is bad.

What causes engine to accelerate without gas?

  1. Leak in intake manifold or deteriorated throttle body gasket;
  2. Loose or missing throttle body spring;
  3. Defective idle air bypass valve;
  4. Bad throttle position sensor;
  5. Bad EGR valve or EGR position sensor;
  6. Evil aliens.
If there is, or has recently been, a CHECK ENGINE light showing, have the stored codes read out. They may reveal the culprit or, at least, indicate where to begin looking.

1992 olds cutlass supreme wont accelerate when pushing the gas pedal

Check oil first, Low oil sensor will shut down if more than a quart low. Change fuel filter, could be fuel starvation, change the air filter. stopped up air filter will put MAF sensor out of range. PERFORM OBDII SCAN SOON.

You need to have the Idle air controller cleaned or replaced, and the throttle position sensor checked or replaced-and while you are at it, have the throttle body cleaned. Since she is going to be driving it, you should consider doing a tuneup (plugs, air filter, fuel filter, plug wires or have COP's checked for oil in the bottom of the plug holes)-an oil change, and checking the brake linings, antifreeze and cooling system maintenance.

I would put a new fuel filter on and try that. If that didn't work, sparkplugs and wires, and a distributor cap and rotor. Also make sure your air filter is clean.

You could have gotten bad gas in your tank. Did you try dry gas at all? Also, bad gas can leave alot of sediment at the bottom of your tank, waiting for the right movement to get moving into your system. A new filter would only get quickly clogged again. I had this happen- got gas from a station after a flood- fuel tank had to be dropped and cleaned out.
