Sometimes, recently, my favorite youngest daughter said that when she steps on the gas in her 2000 Rav4 nothing happens. It doen't move. It does not rev up. Let's off the gas, tries it again and it goes as always, that being step on the gas and go. I have yet to see it myself. Never any problems at all. No check lights. And my Favorite youngest grandson is in the back seat ! Any thoughts ? Thanks, Carl

A 2000???? Humm that kind of dont make since it should do something. Either accelerate or fall on it's face. It has a throttle cable so it's still mechanical.
It's the version of the camry 2.2 but is the 3s-fe 2.0. Those motors are low power but they'll run for a long time.

Have to inquire more if it's a non downshifting issue @ cruise or from a dead stop or?????????????????????

Hi, and Thanks. It's from a dead stop. No binds, meaning does not have to pull the gas peddle up. Hope that helps.
