Default driving problem when engine is not fully warmed-up

Hi
I recently bought a 1992 Toyota Camry V6 (145K Miles). The car drives
well and I don't really have any problem with it except when the car
is not warmed up.

When I start the car up in the mornings; the car starts up great. When
I try to drive the car before it has had a chance to warm-up, then the
car doesn't want to move. The car moves but very slowly until the car
has warmed up.

What could be causing this to behave this way? Has anyone run into
anything like this before? Does anyone know what could be wrong here?

Thanks in advance.

I am not very technical then the others who frequent this newsgroup, but I
would suspect that the transmission or some sensors might not be working
right. Do you have the vehicle records of when the transmission and filter
kit was last changed on the car? If not, take it to the dealer and get the
complete transmission fluid and filter kit as well as a fuel filter kit.

When the vehicle is warmed up, is the shifting and acceleration working ok?
If it is, get rid of the trannie fluid as preventive maintenance as well as
run a bottle of injector cleaner.

Leaking secondary ignition is my guess. Replace the cap/wires, rotor and
all plugs. Use OE parts!

SENATOR ZELL MILLER DEMOCRAT OF GEORGIA, the nation's most prominent
conservative Democrat, said today he will endorse President Bush for
re-election in 2004 and campaign for him if Bush wishes him to. Miller
said Bush is "the right man at the right time" to govern the country.

The next five years "will determine the kind of world my children and
grandchildren will live in," Miller said in an interview. And he
wouldn't "trust" any of the nine Democratic presidential candidates with
governing during "that crucial period," he said. "This Democrat will
vote for President Bush in 2004."

The transmission fluids was changed 2 weeks ago and I am sure when
they do transmission fluid change, they also replaced the filter. But
the problem has not gone away.

Are you suggesting that I do a tune-up on the car?
The car starts without any problems...but the first 2-5 minutes after
the car has started the car just does not want to move.
One thing I have noticed ... If I put the transmission on something
other than "D"... example "3" or "2". Then the car is drivable that
first few minutes. The RPM is high… but the car is very much
drivable.

After those few minutes; then the car is okay... you can put it back
on "D" and the car runs great.

I am not sure what else I can try to resolve this issue. Any
suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
