Loss of power unless I push the gas pedal to the floor

Asked by Nov 22, 2019 at 10:06 AM about the 2002 Toyota 4Runner Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2002 Toyota 4Runner. The
vehicle idles normally. Then when I get
on the road for a mile or two, the
accelerator pedal doesn’t work until I
press it to the floor. Check engine light
is NOT on. If I turn the vehicle off then
restart, the accelerator pedal will work
as normal but again, within a mile or
two I encounter the same problem. I
have cleaned the MAF and actually
put a new one in. Problem still exists.
A friend of a friend put a computer on
it and said he can’t seem to see what
is wrong from the readings. The thing
is with some diagnoses if it was a fuel
pump, plugs, bad gas or MAF, it
seems to me that the vehicle would
idle normally.
