acceleration

  1. Previa Forum
    I've got a 1991 Previa with 290K miles. She still runs great but I've always wanted her to have a little more get-up-and-go. There are many performance chip options online but before I buy one, I was wondering if anyone has tried one of these chips and, if so, which one and what were the results?

    Hey guys, so I seem to be having an intermediate rattling noise that seems to come and go only under these conditions: If I am driving up an incline hill, the rattling noise will be very loud, even at low speeds up the hill. It also happens when I'm on the highway and accelerating harder than...

    I am trying to get advise about my 1998 Toyota Camry, it is an automatic with a 2.2L 4cyl engine. I have, what would best be described as a wobble or a vibration that can start as early as 20mph or appear as late at 70mph. It comes and goes, but seems to appear at first under load. It will...
  5. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hey guys. Sorry if this is a redundant post. This seems like a unique problem to my car and the others posts don’t sound like it. I have a 2010 Corolla S. I get really sluggish acceleration while taking off at a light or stop sign when a few conditions are present. It has to be very hot, humid...

    My 2001 Corolla with something over 200,000 miles takes awhile to start, it sputters, and when it first starts, when you press the accelerator, the engine actually decelerates at first, before it accelerates. I took it in to an auto shop. They said the spark plugs were bad, the fuel pump was...

    first off hello to everyone. I have been trying to troubleshoot my 06 Tacoma pre runner 4.0 V6 and its fuel or vacuum leak. I am experiencing hesitation upon acceleration around 2500 RPMs, by hesitation I mean sometimes the throttle responds acceleration is very slow compared to what...

    I swapped the engine and transmission over to this car and did a manual to automatic swap. before I swapped then engine over the car ran great. after I swapped the engine when I press on the throttle the engine wants to stall out and I have to floor it to get it to go. I have checked the exhaust...
  10. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hey everyone just a question about how far you all let the rpms go when accelerating hard. And why(noticeable speed difference?) Also, what effect does it have on your car? Even when accelerating very hard try not to have the engine rev over 4000rpm, not only because I'm aware of the extra...
  11. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hi, I am going to look at a 2010 Camry SE today. I am very concerned about the whole stuck accelerator recall on the 2010's. If this car had that problem, would it have manifested by now since the car is technically 4 years old? Or could it still possibly present a problem? It has 53,000 miles...

    http://youtu.be/Iq1zkfVh_WY What would the rattling-like noise be? Any suggestions on better performance in heat?

    Hey Y'all! So, I've read hundreds of pages of this website, the FSM, Chilton/Haynes and more, enabling me to do most of what I needed to without posting. A hearty thanks to sb5walker and many others whose time writing here has saved me hundreds of hours and dollars! Finally, I must ask for an...

    Good Afternoon! I have a 1998 Toyota Corolla LE and when driving, it was having a hard time accelerating and lurching. All of a sudden the check engine light came on, and I took it to Advanced Auto Parts and they verified that it was a misfire problem, suggesting I change the spark plugs. I...

    Hello, I have recently experienced some problems with my 1997 Camry (automatic transmission), which has 94, 909 miles on it. Last summer, the fan for the air conditioner started making weird noises; sort of a low humming sound. Sometimes it would squeal when I started the car up. This only...

    I am going to pose this to you guys, I do routine maintenance on my friends car, including routine throttle body cleaning and it gets a fuel injector cleaner every so often (Techron). And I have taught my friend to drive her car efficiently from stop signs, to improve gas mileage. but she came...

    Toyota was mostly cleared of wrongdoing in the unintended acceleration case thanks to a verdict from NHTSA. An Iowa senator however, recently asked for the investigation to be reopened, but NHTSA is standing by the verdict. Senator, Charles E. Grassley of Iowa claimed that he had received...

    Sometimes when I'm at a light then I press the pedal it goes really slow then I let go of it and press again then the car drives normal. Other times I am on the freeway so I just press it harder and after a few seconds it picks up. Any input?
  20. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    After highway driving for more than an hour or so, and then slowing down or stopping, my 2008 Matrix seems to have no guts when trying to get up to 100 k again. I gear up as usual, but once in 5th, the gas pedal seems to have no affect and the car actually slows down as it would if coasting. I...
