Default 60mph shake/jerking!!!! and airbag light is on.

Hello,
I am new here.

I have a 99 toyota camry solara. I have noticed that when I am cruising and
a constant speed, I get this jerking. Druing acceleration, no jerking,
coasting, no jerking. ONly while cruising! It has me stumped. The car has
125k on it. Its the 3.0L v6 also.

I notice that it shifts kind of rough also. Does anybody know what may be
wrong? Possible dirty oil only?

My airbag light is on too. Can autozone check them for free? I know they do
with the engine lights.

When is the last time you had your trans oil, filter and differential
oil changed, probably never.

Yeah, sounds like the tranny. May be time to change out the strainer as
well, probably all plugged up. Don't just clean it, get a Fram ATF kit
with rubber cork gasket, about $20 a set.

Ok.....Ill change that stuff. I know the filter....but which is the
strainer? Got a part number? Also. I jsut cleaned the TB....And now
whenever I start the car (cold) I get a LOT of gray smoke (kinda looks like
the exhaust on cold winters). its 70 outside and it should do this......it
puts out A LOT of it too.....any idea what it may be? Engine light came on...
getting it checked to see code.....It may be a misfire cuz the engine runs
VERY rough now too (Flashing engine light).

The trans is not DIY unless you have a real lift or pit, the smoke is
your valve guides but nothing to worry about, Gees keep the dam thing
maintained, get a manual and follow it, the strainer is a-the filter.

This car is not mine actually....so dont rant at me for not keeping it
maintained. I keep my own car well maintained. I have dont filter changes
b4 on trannys. there not that hard. I can tell that this car has been
abused.

Dont worry about the smoke? There is ALOT of it tho and it is kinda
embarrassing.

IT sounds like its mine.....It is a friend of mine who gave it to me to fix
it for him. He doesnt care for cars well. I wrote it like that because it
is so much easier to understand and write.

Yea mine smokes after a day but only burns 1/2 quart in 3000. It realy
does lube the cilinder on startup, the time it is needed most, 10-30
will make it smoke less.
