Question about 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser
I feel the vibration on the floor and the vehicle struggles to reach higher speeds. It over-revs if i press down the throttle too quickly. Speed is a slow build up, though it eventually gets there
Do you hear a loud hissing sound when you take off?
Could be the cat converter.
if not that, I've seen CV axles that caused poor take off and vibration.
let me know what you find.

May be low fuel pressure, or, much less likely, a bad fuel filter. Check your air filter, maybe even replace it. Check vacuum lines for leaks. Try a good fuel injection cleaner like Lucas brand. Maybe a gas line dryer (for water mixed with gas). You might have to test or have tested, your fuel injectors. Could be the throttle position sensor. MAP sensor. Choke may be sticking part way closed.

One of the plug wires may be arching or have a defective spark. It's odd, but I check mine by removing each plug wire one at a time. I'll use stick the end of a screw driver (insulated handle) in the plug wire and check the spark coming in from the coil/coil pack/distributor. Keep in mind, the engine is running and I only do this if there's no shop open or close by. Also the insulated handles are for that unwanted shock. Has he checked for sparks at night with the engine running. Look around and follow the plug wires and around coil/coil pack for any jumping sparks. If any are seen, there's your problem.

Lack of power at speed could be a few items.
1. Air intake system restricted; plugged air filter or intake ducting (seen rags stuck in ducting)
2. Exhaust system restricted; plugged catalytic converter, muffler. Check exhaust back pressure ahead of catalytic converter. Should not be over 2PSI on high idle.
3. Lack of fuel pressure or flow. At high speed your vehicle is using up a lot of fuel. If the pressure is low or fuel lines restricted (fuel filter, pinched line) it may not be able to supply enough.
4. Ignition timing out or timing belt has skipped a tooth.
There are a few of the basic items to check into.
I am surprised that the check engine light is not on with your symptoms.
Thank you for using FixYa.
