Throttle Cable? Help?
OK so lately i noticed everytime i would switch gears fast in my car the accelerator felt like it would lag. What i mean by the lag thing is that i would let go of my acceleration pedal and push the clutch in and then shift gear...then let go of the clutch and hit the gas and when i hit the gas my car doesnt react, like i push the gas pedal all the way to the floor and then it takes about .5-1 seconds so that i can feel the power kick in and my car begin to pick up speed again. What could this be, oh and i just got my car checked at Toyota today and it still feels the same?? Could it be that my throttle cable is loose or something else??? confused I got about 34,000 miles.
