    the code stored in the computer is p2104 ... When i first had this problem it would stall out and i would have too restart and it was fine. So i replaced the throttle position sensor and for a month it seem fine but now it just lossing throttle but stays running at an idle untill you restart then it's fine untill it happens again .

Have you had the check engine light read with a scanner yet? It could freatly help me diagnose this for you.

If you haven't, you can stop by most shops and have it done (it doesn't cost too awful much anymore). Or, you can buy a cheap scanner from any auto parts store (the cheaper the unit the less info it gives, but its helpful nonetheless), Or, you can swing by AutoZone or another part store that offers diagnostic scanning nfor free.

Or, you can try this:

Turn the ignition switch to the on position (without engaging the starter). Immediately after, turn the switch off, on, off and then on. Now, observe the check engine light.

The check engine light should begin to flash a series of codes. The flashes will be separated by short and long pauses. The long pauses separate the "ones" and "tens" positions, and each code from the next.

For example, for a code 55, you'll see the check engine light flash five times, followed by a short pause, then it will flash five more times. It usually repeats the code reading three times. Then, it will move to the next code.

Watch the following video for an example (a code 55 will be displayed at the end of the test).

I'll be near my computer for most of the day. Let me know what you get for codes. I suspect that it is going to be a fairly simple fix (probably the throttle position sensor or the vehicle speed sensor).

    Code 2104 isn't all that uncommon and should be a fairly easy fix. Unfortunately, it isn't all that specific either.

    The most typical causes for this code (especially when this code is not accompanied by additional codes) are a damaged PCM, a faulty APP (Accelerator Pedal Position) Sensor, or a wiring problem. Of course the other issues that can cause this code are a faulty Throttle Position Sensor or a bad Electronic Throttle Body.

    Before randomly replacing stuff based on a best guess, I'd start by simply tracking the wires between each of the above mentioned components. Make sure the connections are clean, secure and the wires appear healthy.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

1994 ford tempo; vehicle upshifts late, won't shift until 35-40 mph after high reving fro 35 mph, then again at 65 mph after high reving from 55 mph to 65 mph.

Sounds like your transmission is on the fritz. Try changing the fluid and filter see if that helps. If that doesnt try a can of anti slip from any good parts place (Napa). If this dosent help it's time for a rebuild on the transmission

The RPM of Nissan Altima stays high when drive over 65 MPH.

No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.

Stalls at low speed when in cruise control

You sould have recieved a "recall" notice in the mail about the cruise control for fire and failure issues. they are adding a fusable link where the cruise control harness connects to the brake master cylinder. if you have not had the recall performed yet you should SERIOUSLY consider getting it done, mainly so it doesnt catch fire, but "could" be the result of the failure you've been experiancing! btw, almost ALL Ford vehicles have been affected with the cruise control recall. hope this helps!
