Car wont accelerate when stepping on gas.

Asked by Aug 19, 2017 at 10:51 AM about the 2006 Toyota Camry Solara SLE Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Toyota Solara. Just recently
my car won't accelerate when I step on the
gas pedal. I have to really step on it hard,
and it takes a Couple of seconds to move
and when it does it jerks forward as if I'm
blasting the gas for a race. Once I'm on the
road and it's going it seems normal, but
when I stop at a stoplight, I have the
problem again when the light turns green
and I step on the gas. I step on the gas,
sounds like it wants to go but it doesn't
move...them wham, it jerks forward
sometimes my tire spins in place. Tried
cleaning air filter. Problem remains. Any
idea what else I can do?

Check air filter, fuel pump pressure, all fuel filters and fuel sensors .
