2007 Toyota Camry will not accelerate fast

Asked by Apr 13, 2017 at 09:30 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry and just recently my car will not accelerate when trying to pass someone or when accelerating up a hill. The check engine light blinks but does not stay on. I just easy up on the gas and it corrects itself and the light stops blinking.

I had this problem with my 05 trailblazer 3 different times. It is most likely a coil pack that needs to be replaced, or a spark plug. My engine light would blink when I tried to accelerate, which notifying you of a misfire. It would stop blinking when I let off of the gas, or went really slow. Probably none of the spark plugs in your car have been changed. About a $100 fix.

Thanks, I will definitely try the spark plug route first!
