STALLING IN THE MORNING

I have an ancient Camry that I love to death - but lately she's been having some stalling trouble in the morning. Right when we hit the road she was stall and jitter when I attempt to accelerate. For the initial five minutes or so of driving in the morning she experiences this sputtering but then proceeds just fine. Driving back home from work she seems just fine. Are we looking at a possible faulty oxygen sensor?

What is it a Carb or an EFI system-try checking the choke plate could be sticking closed.

It's an EFI system. Experienced similar trouble a few years back, but after replacing the distributor cap the problem was totally solved. Could it now be a spark plug issue?

Give it a minor tune-up and replace the fuel filter and check out the idle air control valve and throttle position sensor.
