AP Sources: US clears Toyota gas pedal fix

Toyota Motor Corp. has received clearance from federal regulators on a fix for the company's sticky gas pedals, three people briefed on the matter say.
Two dealers said Saturday that Toyota plans to make the announcement Monday morning. One says that dealers could get parts as early as Thursday or Friday.
A Department of Transportation official confirmed that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration did not object to Toyota's repair plans. Technically NHTSA's approval is not required, but Toyota would be reluctant to proceed if the government raised objections.
All three people asked not to be identified because the announcement had not been made.
Telephone messages left with Toyota spokesmen were not immediately returned.
Toyota has recalled 4.2 million vehicles worldwide because the gas pedal systems can stick.
