From Cold Start, car has trouble holding idle until warm. Why?
After sitting overnight or a few days my 1999 Camry le 4 cylinder Automatic has trouble holding an idle. I have to hold the gas down for a while until the car warms up and then its fine. Is that the fix itself, is it worth fixing, what is causing this problem.
Not sure if related. Sometimes while stopped in traffic or at a red light, my speedometer will go crazy, hops up to 65mph when I'm completely stopped then dives all the way down to 0. Then when I do need to go its like something is wrong with the engine, kind of putters and doesn't have much power. Once I get moving its fine.
One time this happened on the freeway in traffic and as I stepped on the gas the car stalled and I had to restart it, it was fine after the restart but I was on the freaking freeway that could have been bad.
This only happens when I'm idling.
Is this a good question?
