Thank you for alwoing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. How many miles are on this Tundra?Do you know what codes are stored in the ECU causing the check engine lights to come on?

38000 and dont know any codes just started this today,they started it again and the rpm is over 5000 shut down
Toyota Mechanic: Genchi Genbutsu, Toyota Master Technician replied 3 years ago
This sounds like a throttle issue as it is controlled be the Engine ECU. I take it that this under warranty still, yes? Is there a Toyota Dealer near you?
