You might want to have your serpentine belt tensioner/pulley inspected. These symptoms are very characteristic of what I experienced with my 2001 toyota corolla at 45k miles. I found the assembly on the web for about $127.00 and had a buddy put it on for me.
If you are mechanically inclined, you can check it by removing the serp. belt. If there is any looseness in the round pulley, your hydraulic dampener is leaking or the tension spring feels weak, you will need to replace it. Caution!!!! Before removing the belt, take a picture of it in its original configuration. I did not have a belt routing diagram in the engine compartment as most cars do. Maybe they forgot to put the sticker at the assembly plant. Would have been a nightmare if I had not photographed it with my digital camera.
I'm pretty sure this is the problem!
#2525 of 3858 2000 Corolla no acceleration/rough idle
Jun 26, 2006 (2:21 pm)
My wife's 2000 corolla after it sits outside in the heat has a rough idle at start up. It only seems to happen after sitting in the heat. Also when she puts the vehicle in gear there is no acceleration and she has to pump the gas to get the car to move. After a few minutes the car is fine and the idle and acceleration returns to normal. The dealership diagnosed it as a throttle body problem and cleaned and lubricated the throttle body. This didn't solve the problem. Any ideas???
#2526 of 3858 Starting Problems

1993 Corolla. When the key is turned on all lights and everything works, but when I turn the key all the way there is no crank. It's like the starter doesn't exist. I removed the starter and had it checked and it passed. I examined the fusable link and it was fine. Do you think it could be the ignition?

Sounds like a possible case of your shifter not being all the way in park, that would stop the starter from cranking, try holding the shifter up in park while turning the key,can also be poor wire conections to starter, or battery , can also jump the starter to see if it works

Great, thanks to you I wasted so many hrs reading (just kidding).
What a nightmare for camry owners! I was buying new car this year but stayed away from camry because they are so ugly, the new one even more.
I just got a 2006 RAV4 that is also new for this year with a new engine (269HP 3.5 V6), but the older 5-speed AT design.
I keep my fingers crossed.

Did you ever get it figured out. I have two 2001 Corollas that do the exact same thing. After sitting in the heat they hesitate upon startup and then I can put my foot on the gas pedal to the floor and they won't accelerate at all. This clears up within 2-3 minutes and then they run fine. On one of the cars it occasionally sets a code for running too lean. Any ideas?
#2530 of 3858 2000 Corolla AT engaging twice (???)
Jul 03, 2006 (12:29 pm)
Does anyone know why my Corolla's AT seems to engage twice. I will take it out of park and into drive and there is an initial engagment and then a second later a second engagement. Don't know if it is the motor mounts or the transaxle or possibly a CV joint going out. Any info would be greatly appreciated. :^)
