Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe
My mechanic actually referred me to dealer-service on this after he replaced the throttle postion sensor and the problem did not go away. Dealer-service claimed they identified the problem and apparently charged me to not fix it. They replaced the throttle position sensor again, stating the part my mechanic used was not a genuine GM part...
It is an intermittent problem. It happens either in motion or at a stand still. Road conditions do not seem to be a factor.
A combination of low traction and/or no traction dash lights followed by engine revving and what feels like the trans not being able to shift between gears. Can last for as little as 5 minutes or as long as 20 minutes.
Dealer-service receipt states: "Scanned for DTCS found P0105, P0122, P0440, P0452, P0730. Codes lead to throttle position sensor, was able to duplicate concern. Replaced throttle position sensor, cleared codes and rechecked."
I picked the car up Sat. from dealer-service and this morning - same problem. Any thoughts? Suggestions?
Have u cleaned the throttle also check for a air leak on hoses hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
Limited throttle mode--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
Throttle default mode--The control module will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
Forced idle mode--The control module will perform the following actions:
Limit engine speed to idle by positioning throttle position, or by controlling fuel and spark if throttle is turned off.
Ignore accelerator pedal input.
Engine shutdown mode--The control module will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
