I Did All the belts, fuel filter, air filter, EVERYTHING in the motor. But when i take off, acceleration seems to lag. (Slow) After about 2500Rpm, it seems Perfectly Fine. Transmission shifts Perfect!!! I dont know what to do I know the camry was never like this. What can i fix, only thing left is fuel pump but seems to work just fine. Im hoping you guys can give me at least couple ideas what to do.. I would like more than 1 idea just incase. Thank You!!!! (Main problem is acceleration)
My car has 191000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Here are some initial thoughts that immediately come to my mind:
The fuel filter may be installed backwards or is leaking fuel. The vacuum hose may not be properly installed around the air filter box. It may be a loose hose clamp on the air box. A dirty or damaged mass air-flow sensor is another common problem which can be cleaned with a MAF cleaner.
Rarely does this set a Check Engine Light. However, a computer scan can help narrow down the cause. An experienced technician should easily find your problem and fix your acceleration issue.
