VSC Off/VSC Trac


Asked by Oct 27, 2016 at 04:05 PM about the 2002 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Toyota 4Runner and for a couple
weeks both VSC Off and Trac lights came on. What
does this mean? My car will tend to shake when my
car is completely stopped. When I go on the
freeway, my car has a tough time going from 40 to
60/70 mph, also should mention when that happens
that the RPMs have a tough time going over 2000
rpms. Once my car gets going, it seems fine but I
know something is off.

Do you have a check engine light on? You may need a tune up and also have issues with the stability system.


The check engine light is not on. What are the possible problems and costs to fix?

3 out of 3 people think this is helpful.

Your information is a bit vague but how long since you had a tuneup? It sounds like you have a major engine miss which could be a lot of things but I would start out with a tuneup. How many miles on the car?


It's been probably since early June, I think, my last tune up was. And I have about 162k miles...
