problem #3

Oct 062014

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • 196,000 miles
Vehicle makes a sputtering noise at acceleration and coasting speed. Even at stop. Sounds like a misfire and thud at some points. Causes a loss in power and jerk.

problem #2

Oct 012014

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • 196,000 miles
At stop and starting to accelerate vehicle hesitates while trying to go into intersection. Stalls for a few seconds vsc light comes on and once system gains control it lets me actually accelerate and proceed. Dangerous due to oncoming traffic and the hesitation time of not knowing how long until I regain control.

problem #1

  • 181,878 miles
Driving at 75mph and inexplicably lost vehicle speed. Engine was running but would not respond to foot feed, I.e. press down on accelerator and little to no increase in rpms from idle. Dealer replaced throttle position sensor.
