Question type: Maintenance & Repair

please help me I have a 2003 camry 2.4 lt automatic. it has 380000km on
it. The car has sey around for 2 years without being started or drivin before
I got it. I have been driving it for about a moth and a half and the problem
I'm having only started about a week ago. When I go to accelerate it will
only rev up until I push on the gas pedal so far then rpm's drop right down
to 0. If i slip it into nutruel then back into drive I can keep going along but
only if I press very lightly on the gas. If I have it in park and just hold the
pedal to the floor it just jumps up and down from 2500 rmp's to 0. but that
is not the case when the car is in drive. all the fluids are ok, the air filter is
quiet dirty and the engine light is on but I didn't get to put a code reader on
it yet. If anyone has any advive as to what it could be please let me know.

I'm having a problem with the way you are describing this malfunction. Is it Engine related...or....Transmission related? Check the engine and tranny fluids. Look, smell, feel these fluids for bad odor and gritty feel/appearance. Knowing what codes the computer has set will be helpful with the diagnosis. Let the engine start up and idle. Apply the brake and shift into reverse...then...drive. Do you get a gentle clunk in both gears? Now we usually gently accelerate in drive and see if the transmission shifts gears. A vehicle with this high mileage and history of sitting for extended period of time needs a good inspection of all systems and sub-systems.

I have it all figured out thanks it was an ignition coil. Thanks for all of your advive though.
