Sounds like you have a timing belt issue, it may be off one tooth. This would be expected by the way you describe your symptoms

P2118 engine code, and the vehicle would not accelerate at all. what should I do? Kindly help, is a 03 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Sport Utility.


P2118 Toyota - Throttle Actuator Control Motor Current Range/Performance

Possible causes:
- Faulty Throttle Actuator Control Actuator
- Electronic Throttle Control System (ETCS) harness is open or shorted
- Electronic Throttle Control System (ETCS) circuit poor electrical connection

When is the code detected?
The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the battery supply voltage applied to the electronic throttle actuator. When the power supply voltage drops below the threshold, the ECM concludes that the power supply circuit has an open circuit. A DTC is set and the MIL is turned on.

Possible symptoms:
Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P2118 Toyota Description: The Electronic Throttle Control System (ETCS) has a dedicated power supply circuit. The voltage (+BM) is monitored and when the voltage is low (less than 4 V), the Engine Control Module (ECM) concludes that the ETCS has a fault and current to the throttle actuator is cut. When the voltage becomes unstable, the ETCS itself becomes unstable. For this reason, when the voltage is low, the current to the actuator is cut. If repairs are made and the system has returned to normal, turn the ignition switch OFF. The ECM then allows current to flow to the actuator and actuator can be restarted.

If you have someone check the engine computer for trouble codes, you'll probably find a code for the speed sensor in the transmission.

I have a 1998 4runner sr5 v6 4x4 automatic w/overdrive. My problem is when I come to a stop, the transmission doesn't want to downshift. So when I accelerate from a stop, the transmission isn't in first...


Hi Mr,
Sounds like you have a problem with the shift control unit. Take it and have a scan carried out and that should tell you exactly where your problem is.

WON T ACCELERATE PROPERLY


Check for a crack in the big rubber hose between the throttle body and the air cleaner. A crack in that hose will open and let unmetered air spoil the fuel mixture when the engine is torqued in one direction (forward) and seal the crack when the engine is torqued or tilted in the other direction (reverse). If cracked, replace the hose

Transmission???


IT SOUNDS LKE YOUR STARTER IS NOT DSENGAGING AND THAT COULD WEAR OUT YOUR FLYWHEEL A STARTER IS A CHEAP JOB COMPARED TO A FLYWHEEL I WOULD REMOVE THE STATER AND SEE IF THERE IS ANY EVIDENCE OF IT STAYING ENGAGED. ALSO CHECK YOUR FLYWHEEL AND SEE IF IT IS TORE UP? YOU CAN BENCH TEST YOUR STARTER WITH A 12 VOLT BATTERY CHARGER AND SEE IF THE PLUNGER IS MOVING IN AND OUT CORECTLY. OR YOU CA TAKE IT TO YOUR LOCAL AUTO PARTS STORE AND THEY WILL TEST IT FOR YOU.
