Obviously there is leak. The first place to check is the water pump weep hole. If it is leaking, you need a water pump, very common on the Camrys of that age. If you want coolant in your car,, dont completly fill up the reservoir because more coolant gets expeled into there. Check your radiator cap as well. Buy a new one just like it from the Toyota dealer. Open it up and put coolant in until the coolant level is up to the neck of the radiator.

There is always a fix for anything. The technichian just said there isn't because there isn't anything written on paper talking about it. If the engine is actually sputering itself, it is probably a problem in the engine and or its components. To me, it sound like the two second lag is a tranny problem. My best bets are on the shift solenoids for the particular gears. The ECM could not be working them properly or they themselves could be bad. Also, the valve body may be bad. Give the technichian these ideas. Anything can be fixed, but It may be hard to get parts. GOOD LUCK.

I have the same vibrating problems when the air-con is On when the car is stop(Engage to Drive position). Toyota Service tester taught that it was the Engine mounting crack and the Air-con Compressor that caused the problems. After waited for 6 weeks, both spare parts came and just got it replaced free of charge (under warranty) but the vibration still exist especially in the stop position. The last comments from the tester is "this is normal". I wonder whether is the main electronic control unit malfuntional for the idling module or something else? Please advised if you have this problems fixed. Thanks

Thanks for your reply. My dealer is working very closely with me on this issue. I am very impressed with their response thus far. I hope and pray that a fix becomes available. I really enjoy owning Toyotas, and would like to continue to do so.

personally, i don't know if this will help at all - so take it merely as an option to discuss with this responsive dealership if they try new solenoids and new trans valve body, reflash or re-initialize your ecm, maybe even replace your transmission...
ask them to replace your throttle body actuator and position sensor, and also (probably first) your accelerator pedal assembly (mechanicals and sensor).
perhaps you should contact the NHTSA and file a report with them. on the other hand, you seem to suggest the dealership is working the problem aggressively to address your concerns.

I was just wondering where are you from I am from kansas. But you explained my problems right down to a T. And i call toyota about 2 almost 3 months ago and got the same story, never heard of this problem. And i am glad ur dealership is working with you and ur rep. But my dealership said there wasnt anything they could do about it, and the region toyota rep just made me mad by saying there wasnt anything wrong with the car and it drove like a camry and I offered for him to test drive my car for a week and he wouldnt do it. U drove another camry that was worse than yours and my experience of driving two other camrys they didnt do it at all. My questions to you is. Does your car hesitate in the mornings when it is cooler? And does it hesitate all the time? And does it hesitate more when it is hot? Also try this if you havent already Unhook ur negative battery cable and turn on ur headlights to let the battery drain, and see if it keeps it from hesitating for a couple days. Just curious. I have done that with my twice, first time it worked for about week or so and then the second time maybe a couple of days. To be honest with you I just about gave up untill i read your comments in hear. I just actually just go home from looking at new cars. But i am going to make toyota fix this and make it right, so i am going to call up toyota again and complain.
Thank you for the comments on your car again probally kept me from going out there and getting upside down

Yeah thanks!!! Where can I find the water pump weep hole? And what am I looking for on the radiator cap. My radiator was replaced less than six months ago, its brand new. So I am assuming that its not a hose or the radiator cap. Also their is no coolant puddled in my driveway or anywhere that I let the car sit. Is it possible for engine to be burning an entire reservoir of coolant every hour? Or would it only leak out of the water pump when the car is running? Thanks again
