Did you do a flow test on the 2000 injectors? What is your fuel % at idle and load? Is the MAF dirty, which could effect this as well. Is it throwing any codes or pending codes?

^Good suggestions, but the 5S-FE has no MAF, it's a MAP engine.

OP, the 2000 motor will be different from the '96. The '96 was the last year of the gen3 and has a non-adjustable distributor and different injectors, plus I believe the head design is different on a 2000. I would first make sure you're using the throttle body, IAC, and wiring harness from a '96.

Hey would you look at that, it does have a MAP. My apologies. It has been a while since I really did anything with the S series motors.

Did you use the head and everything else from the 96? If so and you reused the distributor, I would check the coil. They have a tendency to develop cracks and act up when they heat up. I believe the coil was external on the 96.

No it isn't throwing any codes and yes I used all the 1996 stuff I pulled the 2000 motor and injectors and replaced everything else with the 96 . I also took the throttle body and iac apart and cleaned them.I have put a new coolant temp sensor on it also.

Ok fellow Camry owners the 1996 is fixed after replacing the temp sensor and the idle postion sensor and a coil. No dice still missing and sputtering. Drove it to work Thursday on my way home it starts missing again but it's still doing it when I get home so I pop the hood and start grabbing wires in the dark low and behold my less than 6month old Bosch plug wires are bad . Ordered a set of NKG wires and problem solved. Maybe I should just work on this car lol
