Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Not shifting past 2900 rpm

Took it to get repaired. Said it was the throttle body. Got a new one installed. Few days later it's acting up again and I haven't taken it in again. Today, I was in first gear from a stop and the car started jerking and the car is shaking. I drive it home and it's fine. I don't know what the heck to do. help.

    It is a manual transmission. I'm in the bay area in Ca. Should I take it back to the same place or just take it to a new shop? I'll friend you on FB and keep you posted.

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant and in lower RPM it wants to chug and hesitate a little but in high RPM it drives fine. The ****** shifts smooth so I don't think its that but Im not sure what else

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.

Tell them to check the throttle transmission sensor. From your general description it looks like the truck is shifting in the wrong gear at low RPM. That is often caused by a defective TPS. The TPS senses the throttle opening. The part is basically a variable resistor mounted on the throttle body. The TPS is tested by reading volts while operating the pedal. Making sure that voltage is in range and that there are no gaps or spikes in voltage changing while the pedal gets pressed slowly and smoothly.

Hi, I have 2004 Nissan Altima and Service Engine soon light is ON since last few days, today i went to AutoZone and then found Error Code P0507 So can you please suggest how to reset this light? and...

the dreaded P0507, have you had your throttle body cleaned lately? I did clean a neighbors TB while doing other maintenance things to it, and this popped up-and it was miserable getting rid of it. You have to do a 'relearn' procedure (about a million times or so, it seems) and DO NOT take it to a dealer-they will just charge you $100 and tell you to install a new throttle body (not cheap). They know this is a problem, and act like you have done something wrong for merely cleaning a dirty TB. It can and will go away if you do the 'relearn' procedure-read this post for information on how to fix it. it is just annoying but does not have to cost anything to correct. His took MONTHS to reset, but it did, and I did a lot of research on this and can assure you it is not what the dealer would have you think it is-they will try to separate you from your money for this code. read this:

Bad excelleration. Dies when let up on gas.

Pull your IAC (Idle air control) off and spray clean it & the port it came out of with throttle body cleaner. Spray pintle (pointed part) good and clean, then re-install & try it. If it's cured & starts to act up again later, replace it.
Should be mounted near front of throttle body, on side.

RX300 Engine Stalls when I take foot off the gas pedal.

The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve is clogged. This part feeds air to the engine at start-up and idle when the throttle bodies are closed. I removed the throttle body assembly from my 2001 RX300 and separated it from the IAC. After a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner the IAC was good as new. I later decided to replace it during routine maintenance. You can pick up a brand new IAC on eBay (genuine Lexus/Toyota part). The dealer will want upwards of $400.00 for a 45 minute job (all you need are basis hand tools).
