Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo
My engine light came on and it was the Accelerator Pedal Position sensor (APP). Before we could afford the part, we went to drive it one night, and it jerked and jumped. We parked it and tried to start it 2 days later, but it wouldn't even start.
It took us almost 2 weeks to afford the part, the car just sat there.
Now, we put the part in, but it's running rough and sputtering. We changed the spark plugs and it's a little better.
We put some fuel injector cleaner in, too.
When a vehicle has sat for awhile i put 93 octane gas to clear away the buildup

Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF
Ignore the accelerator pedal input
Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
Did you have it checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble code's related to the reduced engine power ?
All so has APP sensor gas pedal !
Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor
The accelerator pedal contains 2 individual accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors within the assembly. The APP sensors 1 and 2 are potentiometer type sensors each with 3 circuits:
A 5-volt reference circuit
A low reference circuit
A signal circuit
The APP sensors are used to determine the pedal angle. The engine control module (ECM) provides each APP sensor a 5-volt reference circuit and a low reference circuit. The APP sensors provide the ECM with signal voltage proportional to the pedal movement. The APP sensor 1 signal voltage at rest position is less than 1 volt and increases to more than 4 volts as the pedal is actuated. The APP sensor 2 signal voltage at rest position is less than 0.6 volt and increases to more than 2 volts as the pedal is actuated.
Your best bet is take your vehicle to the dealer !
