problem #1

Tundra 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My '02 Toyota Tundra would suddenly not idle on its on. Then it would run normally. This has happened twice now. Now I have to push the gas pedal half way to the floor to get any response. In researching the problem I discovered that there are a lot of people having the same problem. It is all related to either the throttle position sensor or the throttle level sensor. These parts cost around $275 each. Toyota mechanics know there is a problem here but Toyota will do nothing to help.
