Im new to this forum. I hope youre all doing well during these crazy times. What a year. Anyways…
So I just bought a 2011 Toyota Camry LE 2.5L L4
A little over 158,000 miles. The car drivers great with the exception of this one little problem.
Between 1500-2000 rpms the car will vibrate/hesitate intermittently. This only happens when the car is at operating temperature and accelerating. It does not happen while coasting. This problem does NOT happen on a cold start and drive. Only when the engine reaches operating temperature.
The problem also does NOT happen above 50mph/2000rpm. Above that speed… the car runs super smooth.
So far I have only put in new spark plugs, premium 93 gas and fuel injection cleaner in the tank.
No check engine light, no other dash warning lights. Had a friend do a live read of the car while driving. His scanner was all green on every sensor and measurement. The vibration caused a P0301 code only once!! Cleared it. Couldnt get the code to happen again. Tried a different coil on the 1st spark plug, same problem.
Cant figure out why the car is hesitating. If any of you have seen this mystery before or have any clue as to what it might be, your input will be greatly apreciated. Otherwise I will have to surrender it to a shop and lose hundreds of dollars.
