Q: When I'm driving I press on the gas but car won't go

asked by on

I'm driving in when I press on the gas pedal it won't go

My car has 192782 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

From your description, I can’t tell if your problem is a car that won’t accelerate, or a car that won’t move at all. Either way, your car is old enough that it could need attention in a number of areas. I could speculate but I don’t want to shake you up unnecessarily. So I think your best bet is to have a technician visit you and check out your car carefully. You can have that done conveniently by contacting Your Mechanic. They will send a technician to your home or office to check out your Toyota and tell you just what it is going to take to solve your problem.
