93 Camry does not accelerate in gear
I have 93 Camry, 4 cylinder, with 186K miles on it. Car timing belt broke down
few months back. I took this challenge and changed the timing belt and water
pump myself. Now when I switched on the car, it was running fine in neutral
and in gear. But after sometime, it stopped. I checked the engine oil and
transmission oil, both are ok. I switched it on again, it switched on fine but
start producing engine vibrations which is weird as my car was running very
smoothly before the timing belt broke. Car accelerates fine in neutral mode,
but when I put it in reverse or drive, it does not accelerate. It hardly accelerates
to 10 mph in drive/reverse mode. I will be thankful for any help and
The engine is out of time.
Recheck timing marks and key way on crank gear and also check the crank sensor for any damage. Did you change tensions and idler pulleys and when you set in time. Did you have all your slack to tensioner side.
Dear Lonetech, Thank you for your help. I did not change the tension and idler pulleys. I did not know if all slack is to tensioner side. The tensioner spring was loose when I was putting on the new belt and adjusting the timing, after installing belt I tightened the spring again. I will recheck the timing marks and key way on crank gear as you suggested.
