Car jumping on take off

Asked by Jan 11, 2016 at 02:41 AM about the 1994 Toyota Camry LE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Usually when its cold or sometimes when its warm, my 94 Camry will jump
when accelerating, and has poor power when accelerating as well. if i drive it
for a few miles it usually drives fine. I'm thinking its my transmission but i want
to see what you guys think before i drop a bit of money into my car.

Sounds like low tranny fluid as far as the jump on take off. I would pull the stick and check the level. In case you have never done it, check it after a short trip. Leave the engine running when you pull the stick. Wipe it off, and put it back in and then read it. If it's low, you will need a tranny funnel. It fits into the dipstick hole. If your CEL is on, have the codes read. If no CEL, I would buy some MAF cleaner and spray down the contacts. Then buy some throttle body cleaner and spray that down. A good tune up would also be a good idea as well.
