Just like it said, the Camry-whip is stuttering and lurching at lower speeds. Basically, whenever I'm coming from a stop, and still slipping the clutch, the car doesn't roll out smoothly- it bucks a little. I'm keeping the revs up around 1500-2000 (on takeoff), so I know I'm not lugging the motor; also, I do not believe there to be an issue with the clutch. It is original, and it does have 157k + on it, but it exhibits NO other signs of a dying/slipping clutch. Even when you catch 2nd at 6k:D (only done it a few times, the longer I go without having to do a clutch replacement the better). The rod bearings were replaced about 4500 miles ago, might it be an issue stemming from when we had the bottom end apart?

Then, when driving (part-throttle, around town), the car definitely feels like it is surging a little (it falls down a bit, picks up, falls down...). The TB/injectors were cleaned, and a full tuneup was done three months ago... what does that leave? I'm thinking Seafoam, anyone have any additional input?

Something similar happened to a friend when he filled up his gas from a station that had some water in their main tank. Hopefully it is something that simple. Seafoam couldn't hurt. Good luck.

^^ I've tried out different gas stations, I always run either Mobil or Citgo, car runs the same regardless of where I fill 'er up... so I guess I'll be needing some of that seafoam. After almost 160k I suppose it needs a good cleaning...
