My 2013 Toyota 4Runner hesitates in a turn when accelerating. Causes?

Asked by Jun 22, 2017 at 11:27 AM about the 2013 Toyota 4Runner SR5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just purchased a 2013 Toyota 4Runner and am having serious
hesitates on acceleration in a turn specifically.  It also has some trouble
accelerating on a hill.  Have tried pushing the accelerator at varying
pressures.  Is that normal?

Is it lifted? Are they aftermarket tires? Is the VSC light coming on when this happens?

Not lifted. Standard Michelin tires. Only thing custom is after market exhaust system. No lights are coming on, but I've read on other blogs that say there could still be problems even with no warning lights.

For the hill just drop it in 3rd or 4th and it will help for that . As for the turning I'm not sure what could cause that honestly if no lights are coming on. I've had trouble turning on my 03 4runner v8 after I got the suspension and new tires on. When I turn sometimes the VSC/ Trac light comes on.. never did before. I do drove the the shit out of it so that could be it but I have no clue.
