SOURCE: Hi. I have a problem

Hi there?
It sounds like the injectors are blocked. the reason i say this is because the bottom of the tank is full of durt and it must have got through when it was low in diesel.
You need to get the car scanned, if the code p1517 comes up then the injectors are block for sure.
Good luck.........

SOURCE: electronic throttle control light on 2008 dodge caliber

I had the same thing happen to me about a week ago and it was the Electronic Throttle Control. It will stick due to carbon build up. Car was towed to the Dodge garage and ETC replace and carbon cleaned out. Cost me $658.00. Yep that's a hefty price to pay but so far no other problems.

1996 dodge caravan 2.4 code p1294

on dodge motors
fitted a lot of parts and still no better

the fault code clears and comes back as a intermittent problem

could be electrical voltage drop off or heat related failure

i wonder if your 02 sensor ,the catalytic converter
or other related sensors
are causing the fault to come back
if needed a new air filter...

how the test is determined

When Monitored and Set Condition:
When Monitored: With the engine idling and the transmission in drive, if automatic.
There must not be a MAP sensor trouble code or a Throttle Position Sensor trouble code.
Set Condition: The engine idle is not within 200 rpm above or 100 rpm below the target
idle for 40 seconds. One trip fault.

Sounds like the idle air control valve needs to taken off and cleaned using a non-chlorinated brake cleaner or you can replace it. Also check throttle position sensor remember whenever you replace a sensor you have to reset the computer by pulling ECM fuse out and then putting it back.

Zero throttle response and sluggish accelertation

Wow, great description...I suspect the catalyst is bad...(in the exhaust) but try this cheap fix.
go to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" ($8) and following the directions add to fuel and drive for at least 100 miles...see if that helps...if not, have a mechanic look at the catalytic convertor/exhaust
Good Luck

Reverse not working on 1996 dodge neon

There may be an internal leakage because of a dried up gasket on the valve body. Other seals and orings if dried out can break after so many cycles and fail under ppressure. I would hope a valve body gasket is leaking. Otherwise it could get deep. There sare several things that can be chk'd when the valve body is lowered to replace the gasket. Check ball sticking and function would be two. Make sure your fluid level is correct. Sometimes the simplest IS the answer to the problem. Good luck

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied

My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
