97 Toyota Camry LE 4cyl 2.2L. First of all I am the 2nd owner of the vehicle. 1st owner took excellent care of the vehicle as do I. I have owned over year and half and have only had 1 problem ( split fuel fixture on top of fuel pump). The car has been driving excellent til 3 days ago. DAY1- ran out of gas, and tried driving it up a hill to get to gas station on other side. No probs rest of day. DAY2- drove wife to work at 6:45 am and did some light driving throughout that day. Then around 4pm I started the car and went to store when it mad weird sputter as I started it. I drove it 2 blocks to the store and it was acting like it was low on gas again so I put in $10 gasoline. When I drove it home it sputtered and loped so I immediately parked it. When I started it to try and hear any problems the idle would go up and down from 1000 to 2000 on the Tach. I also noticed a cracked air intake hose and did some research online. DAY3- I ran OBD to find only 1 code ( P0303) which is 3rd cylinder misfire. So I went to store and bought & installed brand new Air Intake hose, ThrottlePositioningSensor, Vacuum Hoses, EGR hose, and EGR valve ( EGR is the only thing I haven't installed), and 4 new Spark plugs. Everything but the EGR valve has been installed. When I start the car now it idles around 1.5-2 and if I give any gas, there's little hesitation and if I do it fast enough sometimes ill hear a pop or hiccup from engine. Not as much sputtering. But if I try and drive it, there's constant sputtering and hesitation. Plz I HAVE to get the car running asap, its how me, my wife get to work and my son get to school. I tried to be as accurate and detailed as to what probs I hear/see and what ive done to fix it. Please anyone
have the same problem?
