SOURCE: 2009 Toyota Camry problems

All Toyota auto trans cars downshift when descending a hill when you tap the brake. This is called "Downhill Shift Logic"; what this is for is to eliminate the double shift when you come to the bottom of a hill and then accelerate. Normal condition. Usually happens above 38 MPH.
Also: The cruise will accelerate when going uphill. Normal condition.Plus: The cruise will not disengage back to the set MPH after you top the hill. Toyota recommends to disengage the cruise when encountering steep terrain.

I'm not a mechanic but I have 15 years in the parts business. From what you say I will point you into the direction I beleive your problem is. I would check your throttle control. follow the air intake to the engine intake manifold. in that area you will find what is called a "throttle position sensor". it is activated be the postion of the "gas pedal" it work alittle like a reostat switch. not much you can do with it other than checking ohm redings at differnt positions or replaceing it. Good Luck

SOURCE: No spark, 1988 Toyota Camry 3SFE 4cyl, 5 speed.

there is no crank sensor on this vehicles 2.0L. If you have power to the coil, new coil, cap and rotor try this if not done yet>>>Unplug coil power first....Try pulling off the distributor cap, and make sure the rotor is spinning with the cam...If this fails to spin, inspect the entire distributor assembly. If it passes, Inspect all the power circuit and wiring to the dist assembly, if ok possible ecu. i recommend having a mechanic check it out!! Hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks

My 1992 Toyota 4runner v6 while accelerating will build pressure I can feel in the gas pedal, then backfiring if I continue to accelerate. Sometimes I can avoid backfire by pushing clutch and shifting up...

Check the fuel pressure, and then see where youre at and if it is restricted from the pump or filter.
Next, try to see if you can get any codes out of the SUV. CEL can store any issues for quite some time, and it could be the MAF sensor, as that is very common with these.
I would also check into timing, it could be a few teeth off, pumping cylinders with fuel when they should be firing and causing this. And that is not good. At All.

How to determine if a variable timing control solenoid is damaged from being jammed by gauze filter

Assuming there's a sensor to the control solenoid, the sensor would've sent a trouble code to the ECM, activating your "check engine" light. When you accelerate, it increases pressure in fuel lines, so if there's restriction (such as dirty fuel filter) in fuel line, then it would accelerate rough with hesitation in throttle response.

this is a common first sign of your antilock brake computer failing. You will most likely never feel a difference in your car but there is a slight chance all your safety features will not operate properly in a collision.

that can happen for several reasons the least being the ecm. first thing is it could be a weak fuel pumpand the only way to check this is with a fuel pressure gauge. it should be between 17 and 25 psi. next it could be the TPS(throttle position sensor) this controls your idle. this is located on the throttle body has a weatherproof plug and is held with (2) screws . next is the engine speed sensor this helps the ecm adjust the fuel/air mixture in conjunction with the TPS,IAC valve,O2 sensor<and the egr valve. to pinpoint the sensor problem you have to have a diagnostic scan done. please rate this.......thanks
