LOL "then just turn left......OK,OK sorry, I just had to get it out of my system. On to your problem: I would suspect a fuel problem ( in no particular order); 1- fuel filter (old clogged) 2-pick tube in the gas tank (Old-split in the tank or partly moving from position during turns) 3- fuel line in the engine compartment (old or,leaking prior to the fuel injectors) hope this gives you a place to start. Good Luck

thank you.

Burt100: did you ever find out what it was? I have the exact same problem -- right curve at speed, I think lose power but recover the moment I straighten out.

GeorgeCamery Those were just ideas to check out I was giving dmfd. Hopefully he will let us know how it worked out, so we all can know.

It's your power steering pressure switch. When turning, the switch is supposed to activate bumping up your idle.

i also have this issue please help

I notice the same with my 2013 RAV4 AWD and also with a rented 2016 AWD V6 Venza. I'm at rav4world.com/forums and no one has found anything

I have the same issue....turning left at a traffic light....it's not safe. I only have 15,000 miles on 2013 tundra. I was told is the RSCA.......which is the rollover safety system

Riles0303, I think someone was sending you on a wild goose chase. Any rollover protection system that I've ever seen has to do with structural modifications. Such as roll bars and things to protect the passengers in case of a rollover. BMW has one for their convertible where the rear seat head rest pops out an extra 2 feet in case of a rollover. Check out the video........................... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNHViIgmQo0 In an old post that I left above, I had mentioned the power steering pressure switch. Have you checked into that? Not sure if that is still in use on the newer model trucks though......well, I just checked Ebay and there are pressure switches for the 2013 Tundra so it looks like they still use them.
