 Description of the problemMy car over the last couple of years started experiencing abnormal acceleration . There were times it uses to surge or sound like it was ramping up to go fast, even with my foot on the break, you could hear the acceleration trying to ramp up like if my foot wasn't on the break it would just take off. Then the opposite started to happen. My car idle would just drop and basically when i would go to take off from a stop, the car would not accelerate at all. It was inconsistent so sometimes it would over accelerate and sometimes under. There was no accident, but i've had a few close calls and some people to get aggravated at my car. I took it to the pep boys they thought it needed flushed maybe injection cleaning like all other scenarios i am just now reading about. After that, it seemed to work for a short while, but then the issue start occurring again. I had my spark plugs changed and new coils , new air flow hose to make sure there was no apparent reason for the issues. The problem still exist so i took it to a lexus dealership where their suggestion is the problem is in the throttle bottle. It seems to be a common link with the acceleration issue and the same suggestions are made from the mechanics to fuel injection , to spark plugs to seeming like transmission issue and its the throttle body / please have lexus fix these issues.. They are expensive for the owner to have to go through all the trouble shooting and range of . Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6).
