Why does my 2000 Toyota Camary have lack of power?

Asked by Jan 20, 2015 at 07:58 AM about the 2000 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my Camary was running fine for a
couple years then one day when i got on
the freeway it shut down on me. I have a
new battery in it the spark plugs were just
replaced along with the fuel filter.I did a
compression test on it and they were all
normal. I was fine on oil also. Now when i
try to pull it out of my driveway i can pull it
out and then when i put it in drive to pull it
back into the driveway it shuts off. Please
help what can be the cause ???

I would look at the tps. Throttle position sensor or a really dirty throttle body .

Before spending any real money, I would try what NoFords suggested. Buy a can of throttle body cleaner and clean your throttle body and do your IAC also. Here is a video on how to properly dismantle and clean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsP2-HKz7vE If no change after cleaning, see if your check engine light is on and get the codes read. Try Autozone, they will usually read the codes for you.
