Throttle stuck full open 10 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 12
Had a scare this morning - just pulled out of a side road onto the main road and pushed the go faster pedal to the floor, the pedal stayed there with the tach needle bouncing off the red line and the engine screeeeeaming in pain.

Turned off the ignition and freewheeled onto the verge. Turned out the pedal had got caught the floor mat and could not return.

The mat is in the bin now and all seems ok with the motor, not a an experience I would like to repeat but gives me confidence that the engine won't blow on the Dyno @ ECC in April

proper mats with the little captive 1/4 turn holders (towards the seat) hel guard against this. Check out eBay 'cause I doubt Toyota garages still sell them
