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.

do make sure your emergency brake is off. check your air filter also. wish i could help you more. Redman


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....
