Asked by Feb 25, 2014 at 07:08 PM about the 1994 Toyota Camry XLE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 94 toyota camry xle. After ive been
driving for about an hour my car starts to
accelerate by itself. If the weather is nice
65° or higher I can barely drive. I was at a
stop light with my foot on the break when
my car started jerking attempting to move
forward. I was going up a hill without
pressing the gas and my car was going
15Mph!! When this happens my rpms start
going up to high numbers. Ive had my
throttle cleaned it didnt help at all. HELP
