#29 of 48 Re: Starting your car, no foot on the gas. [user777]

I have always, religiously ( or so I thought) used my right foot for both braking and gas.
Then last week I realized that the one time the firmware designers could likely rely on the gas pedal being at idle, and thereby reliably "learn" the gas pedal idle position, was during the sequence of firmly applying the brake in order to have the electric solenoid release the shifter so it can be moved out of park.
So the issue is NOT what foot you use for braking otherwise, but specific to the exact time you are shifting out of park.
After realizing the above I started paying more attention to my own driving methods. Low and behold it turned out that I had a habit of using my left foot on the brake each time I shifted out of park. For some reason I had developed the habit of applying the brake with my left foot in this instance circumstance.
What was I doing with my right foot...?
In the case of preparing to back out of my garage, and as it turns out any time I am backing up, my right foot is always on the accelerator pedal with my left foot applying or poised over the brake.
Probably lucky that I don't have DBW.
#30 of 48 2004 camry hesitation TSB

Im just wondering if anyone went to fix their hesitation problem on their camry. and did the TSB do anything to make the vehicle more smoother on the shifting and did it solve your lurching and hesitation problem? Also did it make the problem worse or did it start other problems?
#31 of 48 1999 Camry Exhaust 02 Sensor TSB?

I have tried to search for this TSB to no avail. I remember reading that Toyota had a supplier problem with this item.
Can anyone provide me with the TSB?

actually, i'm not a member. Do this. Go to dogpile.com and type in "AARC auto repair" and click search. There will be a link that says Bedford Public Library in Blue letters. Click on that. Then click the arrc link that is on the next page. This will take you to a screen will model year numbers. Select 1999 and the select toyota then click camry then click the model you have. On the next screen click on "Service Bullitins and REcalls" scrool down to the electronis, PROMS, and Sensors link and you will see a couple of TSB's regarding the O2 or air/fuel sensors.

#36 of 48 2007 SE V6 DRIFTING
Jul 27, 2006 (9:04 am)
I recently bought a 2007 Camry SE V6 and have been having the same problem. I feel as through Iím constantly fighting to keep the car straight at speeds of 50+. This is very disappointing to me after all the good reviews on the vehicle that I have been reading. I asked the dealer about it and they said that they need to recreate the problem (some mechanic racing on the freeways with my new car, remember Faris Bulers Day Off?). Iím betting that they will say that this is normal.
Anybody else have this issue?

It could be something as simple as tire alignment. Or maybe its the tires that you have. Maybe eventually YOTA will put out a TSB with this problem.

There is a TSB!
Mine drives fine but there is a TSB ST005-01, dated 11/16/01, which covers all 2002-2007 models.
It covers the diagnosis of whether it is tires or alignment and procedures to fix. Seems pretty straight forward analysis.
