Gas pedal sticks when starting out from a stopped position. This happens sporadically but more often happens after coming to a quick stop at a red light. The gas pedal sticks for about a second or two and after applying more pressure it finally engages and starts to accelerate. Note that I have not had the issue where the gas pedal sticks in the depressed position.

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry. It is not in the recall but it should be. The gas pedal sticks and has for years. This car has been back to the dealer for repairs but they were not successful. Toyota may need to expand their recall. I have been told by the local Toyota dealer that the VIN number on my car is not one of the current recalls so they will not pay to fix it.

1. The accelerator gets stuck when the car is stopped and then have to move forward. 2. It occurs occasionally. The car got stuck at traffic lights unable to move forward. 3. Complained to the dealer(Toyota direct), where I bought the car, they said they will call back and did not respond back. It is very hard to get the dealer. Called Toyota and they said there is no recall and there is nothing they could do. Told them that the dealer is not responding. Took to aaa car care plus and they said they cannot replicate the issue and the brake looks fine. But the issue still happens occasionally. (2000 Toyota Camry le).

car   Accelerator Stuck problem 11
Failure Date: 09/04/2009

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry. I have taken this car in for required servicing and reported to the service technician that the gas pedal was sticking. This is noticed after I have stop and then step on the gas pedal to go. The gas pedal sticks on the top so there is a jerking action when I start off. I have paid close attention to how close I stop behind other autos so that I do not hit them in the rear if it jerks when I take off. This does not happen after every stop. The service technician suggested I go to a retail store to purchase silicone grease to put on the accelerator. I have done nothing but remove the floor mat to make sure that it was not a problem. I do not have the VIN with me at this time but I can supply it if needed.

Failure Date: 02/01/2009

Bought my used 2000 Camry in Aug, 2008. A few months later, gas pedal started sticking when I apply pressure to accelerate after making a stop. Sometimes it happens every time I make a stop in a given day. Other times, when I'm out and about, it does not stick when I accelerate. I have to give it a little push to accelerate from the stopped position. Happens about 70% of the time. Makes no difference if it's winter or summer.

The gas pedal has a spot that sticks when you depress it. If you push quickly or sort of "smack" the pedal with your foot, you can get past the sticking spot. This has been happening for about the past year or maybe even longer. It is very difficult to depress. This happens every time we drive the car, it has never been repaired.

I went to my mechanic two years ago to report that my Toyota Camry 2000 had an accelerator sticking problem. They could not find the problem, assumed it was the mat, or my imagination. It wasn't. The problem still occurs but Toyota is only covering the last 7 years, is this because of warranty? what can I do? car is otherwise fine.

Failure Date: 06/01/2005

I own a 2000 Toyota Camry. I've had a problem with sticking accelerator for about 5yrs now. We've tried wd40, oils, and other lubricants but haven't been able to fix. Accelerator sticks at a stand still position, or it sticks when driving at the same constant speed for longer amounts of time. To help the problem fix, I tap firmly on the accelerator a few times to unstick it. I have checked on the Toyota website recall list several times but my 2000 Toyota is still not on the list. I still have the problem and am worried. What is my next step of action? I thought that since my car was one year old when I bought it that it wouldn't be covered, but I know my car was in a previous accident before I purchased it because there was damage to the driver's side door & the rear window. Could it have been because of the sticking accelerator. I'd have to check carfax and maybe some research from there on. But I did buy the car before it was one year old. Please help me out here, I drive my grandchild in my Toyota Camry & am worried.
