Old post.
they used 2 engines, one is 1.6L and 1.8L other.
so my guess, is , that
car starts ok. hot or cold engine.
car has no power at WOT, (it wont be the TPS)
Is the check engine light on, key on, and does it stay off running?
if not the ECU/PCM (enginebrain) wants to tell you what is wrong
why not ask it.?
ok there are 3 forms of power loss (engine power)
1: WOT, wide open throttle (on most cars that is the MAF sensor)
2: cruising say,at 45mph that too is MAF + oxy sensor.
3: accelerating only, the TPS does cause Enriich mode.
if not , then the TPS is dead.

SOURCE: transmision level fluid Baleno esteem 2002 susuki

The proper fluid level is marked on the dip stick. With the engine running and in park, raise the hood and remove the dip stick from the autotrans filler tube. With a clean rag, wipe down the stick and then place the dip stick all the way back in the tube again, and then pull it out once more.
Holding the stick level, you can now read what the fluid level is.

If you add any fluid, do so in small amounts, such as a half a pint at a time.

Do not add fluid with engine running.

Thank you for adding your comment

1995 Nissan Altima Stuck in First Gear

1. check transmission fluid level or if you can change the fluid & filter.
2. check throttle position sensor (tps).
3. if fluid level & tps are ok & still not upshifting automatically, temporarily (so you can take it to a transmission specialist) , try to manually shift. starting from dead stop, shift to D1. at about 25mph shift to D2. (be gentle on the accelerator & don't over rev on each gear. release accelerator pedal & don't step on the brakes while shifting from D1 & D2).

What i can do next ? i have put new tps. and new throttle motor and codes still shows throttle stuck open and forced idle the explorer 04 still won't accelerates

The problem never had anything to do with
the TPS Sensor,the TACM throttle body motor

When you don't own & work from Factory Diagnostic
Manuals, you don't know the system your working on
or learn anything

Your problem is the ignition coils or modules

I'm all too familiar with all the throttle body codes
Non of the codes have anything to do with the
factory reference manuals either,they help but
stop short of telling you the PCM gets spikes in
what is called a Quizzer which is inside the PCM
but a separate section dedicated to processing
the throttle plate position,control of the motor
& your pushing on the gas pedal & the input from
that or the ETC which is the gas pedal electronic
throttle control

The bad ignition coils are why most repair shops
& dealers can't fix a ford.

Pls location of acceleration position sensor on nissan pathfinder turbo diesel 2004 model

That should be you gas pedal assy

They never fail ,so you better look at
scan tool data & scope the 3 or so switches
before you replace it.

What is the problem?

I would be looking for a dead battery,checking both sides
of the TPS Sensor with a scope,not just a meter,as well as
scan tool,& maybe you have bad COP ignition Coils

I don't have any idea what your issues are but I can guess
at what they may be,if your idle isn't right,no power on the road,
shuts off when coming to a stop or pulling away,won't go up a hill,

2004 hyundai santa fe parked it last night, went to use it today and it doesn't accelerate, engine runs fine, no warning lights on dashboard lit, can put it in gear and move it, but absolutely no...

The 04 Santa Fe came with three different engines. 4 cylinder (2.4 lit), and two different V6's (2.7 lit & 3.5 lit). The 2.4 & 2.7 use throttle cables connected directly to the throttle plate, but the 3.5 uses ETS (Electronic Throttle System) which uses two sensors (APS & TPS) and a control module (ETSCM). APS=Accelerator Position Sensor, TPS=Throttle Position Sensor, ETSCM= Electronic Throttle System Control Module. There are different diagnostic procedures for each system.
Go to and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, campaigns, illustrations and procedures, etc.

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.

Car looses power when driving, won't accelerate

Most likely the exhaust converter is worn out
& broken up inside & blocking exhaust flow

I will assume your gas filter hasn't been on the
car for ten years

You can not run O2 Sensors over 100,000 miles
or Spark Plugs over 3 years or 60,000 miles

The TPS Sensor could be worn out

If the Transaxle is 13 years old that surely could
be slipping & in need of a rebuild
The average Taurus trans goes 65,000 miles then
breaks down

Go back to that VW dealer and complain. I'm sure you payed plenty, and I know in my shop, if a customer's car is not repaired to their satisfaction, I want to know, and make it right. Sometimes parts can be bad right out of the box, and sometimes problems are misdiagnosed. Go back, but don't agree to pay for anything untill you get a satisfactory explanation. Good luck.

How do i replace the tps ?

The TPS is mounted to the throttle body on the intake duct.It will have a connector and held on by 2 or 3 screws all vehicles are different.Remove the connector and the 2 screws and it will come off.

2001 Ford F650 with 7.2 Cat deisel acceleration problem

Check your TPS Throttle positioning sensor. Sounds like it has a dead spot in it or it is failing. May also be a wiring harness issue or loose connection at TPS too! If its intermittent then it will soon go out completely. It should be located on your fuel pedal. Remove it and check it with an ohm meter. Check resistance all the way thru from 0-100 percent. When it is not working it should do nothing and show no resistance. When it is working the resistance value will increase and or decrease as you turn the sensor.
