Gas petal not working

The linkage spring must be broken or the cable to the throttle body has broken. Check for broken cable at pedal end and throttle plate.

Po300 & Po305 on a F-150

P0305 is cylinder #5 not firing. P0300 is random misfire which the computer cannot determine which cylinder(s) are misfiring. Check to This will make a lack of response or no power when the pedal is depressed. P0300 can be caused by spark plug wires needing replacement if equipped.

Brake booster from 1997 vw jetta removal instructions

Hi. Ther is a special tool for this, but it is clumsy and difficult. The plastic retainer is cheap enough to just break it out and fit a new one in place. fit it into the pedal first then clip the rod in otherwise the rod breaks through the clip before it seats into the pedal.

Exceliator Petal sensor

The pedal sensor is part of the gas pedal. The whole thing needs to be replaced. Typically one connector and three nuts/bolts are all that need to be removed to replace it.

I am having a problem with the Acceleration, The petal may be loose? It feel like the petal doesn't go down as far as it used to, the cars takeoff is significantly slower now. I have inspected the gas...

Real good chance the throttle valve cable and linkage from throttle to top of linkage is seized, or seizing and needs lubrication. You'll have to remove battery to see it good under battery tray, and look for the piece of linkage on top where shifter linkage attaches.It needs to move freely. It also regulates your shift points as well, when passing etc. If you push gas pedal hard, it will begin to stick in lower gear longer (revving) before it shifts up, and will downshift hard as well when slowing to stop. Gas pedal will feel stiff, until you get it freed up. Try penetrating lube like WD-40 first to get it freed up, then spray white lithium grease or similar on it after. Do not try to remove nut holding it on, and remove linkage, just leave it on there and keep working it until it will move a full sweep back and forth freely. If you remove that piece of linkage, shaft will drop down and need to remove pan etc to fix it. If you need a picture, let me know, I have one from past experience with same.
