with the ignition on, there should be a shroeder valve on the fuel rail...push it with a screwdriver and you should have pressure...then controlling that pressure is a fuel pressure regulator and filter...it's all electronic these days...look for parts that can wear~ the TPS or throttle position sensor is one~ might be one of these...test before replacing~ http://www.jcwhitney.com/1983-2004-toyota- camry/standard-throttle-position-sensor/p2019094d2168y1983- 2004j1.jcwx

Check the ( ETCS ) Electronic Throttle Control System) fuse. It is located in the fuse / relay box under the hood.

This vehicle may be in the "Limp in Mode. Did someone disconnect the battery for any reason? Is the check Engine Light on when this engine is running? If this CEL IS on...we need to know what codes have set in the computer(ECU).

do me a favor and test the throttle position sensor...because it has heavy usage would suspect this one~...see if the signal is not a mirror of the performance~

...else in a salty environment the system Ground becomes NOT reliable~ make sure the ground to the computer is there and reliable~

on the Camry, I believe it is located UNDER the battery, sadly~!
