Idle seems low, stalls out easily. Car accelerates smoothly and runs smoothly at all speeds except idle, where it is likely to stall.

Idle seems low, stalls out easily.

When I press the brake pedal each time when starting my car, the warning light comes on. The third brake light works fine.

Egr checked out fine. Vsv checked out fine. There was no vacuum from the vsv to egr. Put 12 volts on vsv and it worked. Checked connections from the ecm to all vsv's and egr and only checked 5 volts. Should it be 12 volts opening these valves? Also checked vsv at high rpm's. Did not open egr. Still no vacuum. Could the vsv still be bad?

Oil is fine and it has check engine light but it's been on for a while before the ticking acured and I replied times belt and water pump.

I'm taking a trip to Anaheim ca from Sacramento in November and i was thinking about driving my 98 Camry I've had this car for about 2 years now and have had zero issues it runs amazing the only thing is I do have a small oil leak can someone please tell me if they think my car would make it ok? Thank you in advance

It feels like its not getting gas. Like it can't breath in a way

Last week my car wouldn't start in the morning. Hours later it cranked right up with no jump. Yesterday morning the car wouldn't start. Tried to jump it at lunch and nothing. Jumped again after work and it cranked right up. Drove it around last night to run errands with no problems. This morning, it won't start again. I get a clicking sound but the engine won't turn over. Battery has been checked and checked out at 66%.

There are no diagnostic codes no dealer codes no oil in the water but there is a oil leak on the back of motor

When the ignition is turned to start, nothing happens. The car alarm will intermittently go off. The battery is good.
There is no started click

I drive 45 miles to work. 88 out today. Car lost power 4 times. Pulled off-road , waited1-2 minutes and it would start and go for about 5-6 more miles and do it again. Does it need new spark plugs, coil packs, oxygen sensor? Can a shop test it and see? Seems like fuel or air problem? I replaced. The fuel pump and filter just 3. Weeks ago

Showed egr code at autozone. Smoking like mosquito sprayer and runs weak. Cleaned egr valve well. was wondering if it was valve position sensor or temp sensor.

where is the camshaft position sensor?
