My 2002 Acura tl revs while in park and in drive, check engine light just turned on as well.

The throttle body and idle air control motor needs a good cleaning. Use brake clean and a toothbrush and clean inside the throttle as best you can. especially the back of the throttle plate and where it sits against the throttle body. Start the car, it will take a second or so. Then rev it up and spray some cleaner in the throttle keeping it running. This usually takes care of the up and down RPM's. Have the codes checked to see what is going on. It could be the idle air control motor. Let me know.

2000 mitsubishi legman motor poor idle

Hello! More then likely it's the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS) which, when bad, has these symptoms...You have the option of testing it, if you have a multimeter, or merely replaceing it ...Up to you... It is bolted to the throttle body with a three wire connector; Wire colors...Black (ground)...Green/Yellow (5 volts)...And Black/White (sensor out)...Set meter to read 5 volts...Push the point of a safety pin into the rear of the in-place connector into the Black/White wire slot and push until the point makes contact with the pin the wire is crimped to Connect the + probe of the meter to that safety pin...Connect the - probe to ground...Start the engine ...At idle must read less than 1 volt (.85)...Rev the engine slowly to full throttle...Reading must be 4.3 volts....If neither of these readings are correct ; Replace the TPS....See picture below...Guyru...Saailer

Driving at 70mph on cruse control,engine lost power and cut out.When engine had cooled down it restarted? Jaguar is 1984 XJS V12 5.3 Ltr HE 72000 miles on clock,any sugestions!

I have found that in most cases the ignition amplifier is the culprit. As it sits on top of the engine ( it's the square black box near the throttle } it is susceptable to heat damage. If you take it apart you will find it is a common module you can buy at a parts house. Can't remember what type but if you take it with you it can be matched.

While driving we have an accellerator pedal in a

Well this is 15 years old.You may have varnish buidup in the throttle body causing it not to alow it to close.Your shaft on the throttle body may need lubed as well as your throttle cable and peddal.Unless it just takes off full throttle and not just holds the speed as if it was on cruse controll.Well this is my best guess at this point.Hope it helps and good luck.
