Throttle body I have a 2006 Outlander. When the gas pedal is pushed to the floor the car will only go a maximum of 30km. When idling the car shakes. I have changed the throttle body but the problem is still not corrected. What could be the problem?

Sounds like its not firing properly at all. Check oil first, air flilter, and make sure all your plugs are firing. Check for fuel leak rubber line leaks. Good luck.

SOURCE: Issue with throttle control on my 2003 Maxima

I discovered that its the throttle body sensor. Its not sensing the postion of the foot pedal. The throttle body has a sensor that is linked to your gas pedal via a cable. The spring that the repair man mentioned could be the issue. The sensor then communicates to the computer the position and then computer then applies fuel, the mass air sensor then will communicate to the computer and the computer will then allow more or less air to fuel ratio. So if your stomping on the gas and there is not any response, then your throttle body sensor is most likely going out.

SOURCE: low idle

Most often, dirty or faulty 02 sensors will throw off the idle. The 02 sensors and camshaft position sensor basically control all the idle. If TPS was dirty or bad, you would have some hesitation when giving some gas. Bad plug would cause lack of power or misfire.

Replaced Throttle body throttle position sensors


There is another sensor mounted to the gas pedal. It has to communicate with the throttle body assembly. If the correlation is not correct between the two, the problem will persist. The throttle body assembly is usually the most common of the two, however the accelerator position sensor still gives problems.

2002 ford taurus gas pedal goes to the floor and getting no acceleration. the pedal itself is loose and won't retract into the up position.


The spring or wire that connects your pedal to the throttle body may broken or damaged. Check under your hood and look at the throttle body (it's the carburetor looking thing). There should be a steel wire connected to it coming from the back of the engine bay. It should connect on the side where you'll see a few springs. If nothing looks broken there, turn the part of the throttle body connected to the spring and wire. If it revs up when you move it, then the cable could be broken somewhere between there and the gas pedal.

Alternatively, the linkage on the pedal could have been disconnected some how. Check behind and above the gas pedal to see if eveything is connected properly.

How do I advance my engine ilde speed it seems to slow when at a red light its about to cut off .


i would suggest cleaning the throttle body before adjusting anything, disconnect the air cleaner assembly from the engine and have somebody hold the gas pedal to the floor with the engine off and use some carb cleaner and spray it on a rag and clean all the black stuff out of the throttle body that is just beyond the throttle plate that opened when your helper pushed down the gas pedal,that should cure your low idle problem,hope this helps

1995 dodge caravan S.E. 3.3L doesn't want to start, then does and dies out (also pushing gas petal almost to the floor?????)


pushing gas pedal to near floor causes what is called clear flood fuction. if cranking engine with near full throttle the fuel injectors will not activate, assumes flooded engine and will not start.
most likely you have a very dirty throttle body. clean well with tooth brush and carb cleanr esecially were the throttle plate rests at idle, the plate and the wall of body. just a little carbon build up will cause a no start

Car starts hard runs good on highway stalls if i dont keep my foot on gas have to push gaspeddl to floor to start replaced plugs wires also idle control in throtal body


So IAC has been replaced. Sounds like a dirty throttle body, EGR valve, or vacuum leak. DId you do the maintenance yourself. If so then you should be able to inspect Throttle Body to determine if black and dirty.. this can cause intake problems leading to your issue adn rough idle. EGR valve sends exhaust gas back into combustion chamber to reburn it and make car more environmentally sound. If stuck open it can allow too much exhaust into combustion chamber causign a lean mixture, too much air can cause this.. Vacuum leak can also allow too much air in. Start with easiest and check Throttle body, then EGR valve, finally for vacuum leaks. Depending on your skill the EGR can be cleaned as can the throttle body.. a good link for TB cleaning is http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/repair/1272341. A vacuum leak may be harder to diagnose. You are compensating by depressing gas pedal telling ECM to send more fuel to motor to overcome this issue thats why it will run and start with gas pedal pressed.

I don't have the solution but I can back you up, my 2006 Tribute does the same thing when it's around freezing the first time or two I push on the gas.

Sticky gas pedal


it is a dirty throttle plate. $280 is an absolute ripoff for a cleaning, it is about 10-15 minutes of work. They are probably quoting replacing the throttle body which about a $150 part.

Got to Autozone and get "CRC Throttle Body Cleaner". Remove aire inlet hose at throttle body with a screwdriver. Spray a *small* bit onto throttle plate, use clean rag or qtips to remove gum/varnish. Spray pivots and also clean around perimeter of the plate. Take it to an independent mechanic if you are unsure of the procedure.
