Good day. I have a Toyota  camry  sportivo 03.
Couole of months back it started playing  up. My

perfectly after that. Yesterday  it did same again on
highway, but this time I kept driving @10kmph.
Finally I gave up and had to get my car towed.

My guess......Throttle Body Malfunction. Really need a Scan Tool to start the diagnosis. Absent said tool...not much advice I can offer.

dev...anything new concerning this vehicle?

Just a couple of thoughts. Catalytic converter clogged, if it has a throttle cable check it for proper adjustment. Unhook your negative battery cable for a couple of minutes then hook back up. This can reset the computer. good luck.
