RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)--Toyota announces at a press conference its' attempt to fix a problem with the gas pedals on some of its vehicles.

Toyota Motor Corporation is telling dealers that they should get parts to fix sticky gas pedals later this week.

The $4.2 million customers affected by a large recall may have to wait a while for repairs.

Toyota tells dealers in an e-mail sent early Monday that they will get shims to repair springs in the gas pedal systems that have been weakened. However, repairs will have to wait until technicians are trained.
