I have a 1994 lexus es300 and it cranks and idle find. It will pick up speed gradually but when the accelerator is pressed hard the vehicle stalls. I have put a scanner on it and got a P1300 code. Car has been running find up to now, vehicle has 14,6000 miles on it.

Potential causes are ignition coil, bad igniter, bad crack position sensor. A bad coil that doesnt fire will set this code and cause the igniter to shut down. Some testing is required.
