Toyota Throttle Problem
What do you think is the cause of Toyota's stuck throttle problem?
I spoke with an aquaintence of mine who has a late model Toyota RAV 4 and he has experienced a sticky throttle. He said that he handled it by applying the brakes, moving to the side of the road and shutting off the engine. He said that pulling up on the gas pedal had no effect.
Yesterday, In Milwaukee, a fellow with a Corolla pulled out of a gas station and shot across the street ending up in the middle of the median strip before he fought his car to a atop.
The recommended action published in our local paper is to apply the brakes and shift to neutral. Isn't this a recipe for a blown engine and possibly shrapnel? Maybe those cars have rev limiters?
