Question about 1987 Toyota Camry
Once the car warms up and is driven a bit, for no reason at all the car looses power, the engine does not die, but it wont accelerate. If you turn off the key and restart the vehicle, it acts fine for an undetermined amount of time then it will act up again. very intermittent.

All good ideas but I would have yo saycheck your fuel line. Any section that has a rubber hose in it should be checked. Chances are they rubber line has softened threw out the years and when your motor is demanding motor fuel the line is collapsing and restricting the flow of fuel. Hen your car is cold it don't happen because the lines are cold but soften up later due to the heat from the motor

check for a vacuum leak,you could possibly hear a whistle under the hood,or you can spray starter fluid near the intake manifold where the suspect leak could be and if the engine accelerates it has an vacuum leak,try the simple things first,can also be a clogged PCV valve,it is in the valve cover somewhere and it will have a rather large rubber hose going to the intake manifold

Testimonial: "Weight of oil is helpful answer; just also found another -- defective oil pressure sending unit. Answer still very helpful. Thanks."
I have a 2008 Sienna with 34000 miles. I have had the same noise since it was new. I finally talked to the dealer today and was told it is the fuel injectors and that it is normal.

Ika, has it started back? If not, it may be a timing belt/chain broke. If it cranks, it may be a fuel pump, filter, pinched gas lines, or bad fuel injectors. It may be a problem in the ignitions. Spark plugs,coils, wires, distributor, coil pack, dist.cap, If it is not cranking, check ignition fuse. Check battery, wires, and whole charging system. If it is just dying on you and it starts back, it may be a map sensor, idle sensor or throttle sensor possibly. Need a little more info please.
