Toyota RAV4
The Moon

Why would a Rav 4 start up but when you press the gas it idles up but does not move anywhere?

If it is in manual transmission, it only means that it is in neutral or you have some problems with your transmission. If you are in automatic, if it is not in neutral or park mode, then you would need to change your transmission oil. Cars with old or empty transmission oil needs time before they could shift your car, prevent this by regularly checking your transmission oil to avoid future problems. I should say future expensive problems.
