Toyota Camry acceleration problem

Asked by Feb 23, 2017 at 05:20 PM about the 1995 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1995 Toyota. Camry. Rebuilt the heads
and cams and did a tune up. A problem occurred
now. My car acceleration is slower then normal. If I
pedal to metal it picks up ok but tops out at about
60. The rooms are working but when it revs. I hear
a high pitch whistle sound. My cat isn't glowing
red. Could it be a map or Mac sensor ...maybe pcv
valve? Or more forwards an intake manifold gasket
leak? I haven't had it fog or smog tested whatever
it's called but just looking for some guidance so
I'm not putting a bunch of money in my work car lol
any help would be appreciated... Thanks

Perhaps you should tell whomever did the work, about this problem, they are responsible to some extent.

It's a 4 cylinder 2200 motor and also I did the work so I'm fully responsible hahah

I would start the diagnosis with a fuel pressure Guage in place and a scan tool.....looking for fuel delivery issues and trouble codes. You could flash the TC on this one from the diagnostic connector under the hood...driver side. What about valve timing...are you sure those marks line up.
