AFTER CAR IS STARTED IT WONT ACCELERATE

2005 Scion tC • 98,000 miles

I have a 5-speed scion tc. It starts fine and the idel is normal but when I push down on the gas pedal it doesnt accelerate which is a problem since it needs to in order to move when the clutch is let up. What could be the problem?

Are you saying engine does not increase rpm or car just does not move when you rev engine with clutch engaged?

Also what about engine warning light? Has it gone on? Can you read codes?

I am not sure, I am on deployment and my car is in VA. I will find out and I will get back to you asap.

All that I know about the problem is that it will not accelerate, they brought it to a shop and pulled 3 codes from it all which have to do with the car accelerating. It has basically been sitting for a year now so maybe that has something to do with it.

Auto store will read codes and give you info code# and meaning. Then post that info to this thread.
