Check your TPS switch on the throttle shaft flap. This would be on one side of the airhorn.

If you disconnect the electric connection to this part and use an Ohmmeter, insert the leads into the part and move the throttle. Engine off, Key off. If the Ohmmeter moves smoothly from low to high Ohms, the TPS is good- if no movement then the TPS is bad.

When I drive I lose throttle response,I can smash it with no response. I pull over turn truck off and on and it works fine again it has a Cummings m11

It is likely the throttle sensor, often if exposed to to much heat it will become flat and unresponsive until you restart or cool down.

2kd-ftv engine problem p1226 fuel line malfunction

Possible causes of the P1226 code include:
  • Faulty electric throttle control actuator, throttle position sensor 2
  • Faulty throttle control actuator harness is open or shorted, throttle position sensor 2
  • Electric throttle control actuator circuit has poor electrical connection, throttle position sensor 2
To nail down the exact cause of the code, do a visual inspection for lose wires and connections at the sensor, or damage to the sensor body itself. If no problems with the wiring and connections are detected, a worn/damaged electric throttle control actuator is likely at fault. Signs of a bad throttle control actuator include erratic acceleration, and unresponsive throttle, and poor fuel economy.

My 2003 Freelander is idling erratically when I start the car. When I push the gas pedal down nothing happens

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

There are two things that can result to this issue. It's a bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor or a failing TPS (throttle position sensor). If one of these sensors are faulty, an erratic idle or unresponsive throttle will be expected. As a first course of action, have it looked at and replace if necessary.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My car won't accelerate properly no matter how hard you push on the gas. I got it up to 45 but thats as fast as I could get it to go. What could be wrong?

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then you definitely have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor). If the TPS is faulty the result is a late response or unresponsive throttle. One good reason why it won't go. The TPS is connected on the throttle body. Have the TPS replaced and you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Alfa 147. unresponsive chuggs when accelerating

Hello! I suspect a defective Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS)...Cost is around $40...See picture below...It is bolted to the throttle body and has a three wire connector...Wire colors are...Gray/White...Brown/White...And Orange...It can be tested if you have a voltmeter and a wee bit of experience using one...Let me know if you do and I'll send the procedure...

Gas pedal unresponsive

Try this: Go to your local parts store and purchase a can of (throttle body cleaner) you will take your air filter out and remove the big tubing that is connected to your throttle body and filter housing. Spray the cleaner inside the throttle body, open the (butterfly) and spray around the pivot the butterfly opens and close on. What happens is you get carbon build up in these areas and it causes the gas pedal to feel like it's stuck and have to apply more pressure to the pedal. You will see alot of black carbon run out of the throttle body. Take a clean rag and wipe down the area of the throotle body. Repeat the cleaning 1-2 times. put your air inlet tubing back on and re-install your filter. It may seem hard to start at first but it's drying out the cleaner that was sprayed inside the body. Try this and see if this works. I've done this on many vehicles that shops want to charge $300 to do and all you need is $5 cleaner. It's very easy to do and takes 20 min.

Throttle does not work-wrench light on

Certain emissions parts are covered 8 yr / 80,000 miles (e.g. PCM, ECU, & TCM). I've also read of bad gas caps leading to problems. Have you changed gas caps or added a locking cap that's not Ford approved for this fuel system?

1.9 Dti (1999) Scenic. Throttle goes unresponsive

Not heard of this before,the problem is that you could be looking forever for a fault especially if its electrical as i suspect this may be.Your best bet is to take it to a garage and have it plugged in,you never know it may be a quick fix and not expensive.good luck.
