1997 Toyota Camry Q&A
1997 Toyota Camry Question: Why does the motor feel jumpy when I take my foot of the gas?
Hi There. When I take my foot of the gas (40-50km) the motor is noticeably jumpy. This movement also travels up through the gear stick. It's as if the whole gearbox and motor is moving. BTW, it's a manual trans. I've already replaced the dog bone mount on top of the engine thinking that was the problem, but not the lower font and back mounts as they appear solid, but I could also be wrong about that. Does this sound like an engine mount problem or something else? Thanks. Dallas. - DallasNZ
Can you duplicate the symptom going in reverse? Could be a few things mounts included. - ProfessorG
25 to 30 mph; What gear do you have it in when this happens? May need to downshift to a lower gear at that speed. Does the shifter jump and car jerk when you accelerate at that speed in the same gear? - pushrod
mounts can look good even though they are sagging - globalhelper
