Why does my car not go fast?

Asked by Nov 25, 2013 at 02:43 AM about the 1995 Toyota 4Runner

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Toyota 4runner is a 1995. I turn it on and let it heat. When I drive it doesn't go fast. I have the gas petal pushed all the way down and it goes about 20-25 miles only and it doesn't want to move there. I have just changed the spark plugs. Please help me.

Did you get it fixed? Sounds like your cat converter is plugged up. Hope you fixed it. Driving it like that will burn your valves....
