perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Windstar. engine stalls.

You know, lookinig at this problem more, you have more possibilities of what may be wrong:

  1. Your idle speed may be incorrect
  2. Fuel filter may be clogged or water and impurities in your fuel system
  3. Possible damaged coil pack or wires
  4. Emissions sytem components faulty (a sensor, catalytic converter, muffler, etc.)
  5. Faulty or incorrect gapped spark plugs
  6. A vacuum leak at the intake manifold or vacuum hoses (check the hoses for cracks or damage)
  7. Fuel injection or engine control systems malfunction (ECM)
This should keep you busy....at least with the easy stuff to inspect.

You need to replace the EGR valve. It may or may not hurt the driveability. When mine went bad, I noticed bucking at lower RPM's which may or may not hurt something.

SOURCE: Have 2003 chevy tahoe with

There is a Tecnical Service Bulletin (TSB) that specifically addresses codes P0120, P0220, and P1516.

It says that the TAC Module can set these codes erroneously under certain conditions. It is very likely that if your vehicle is diagnosed according to the provisions of this bulletin, the problem can be corrected without having to purchase or replace any parts.

It is Technical Service Bulletin number 03-06-04-032
Issued June 16, 2003

What does it mean when code p1516 shows up on a06 chevy impala


There is a service bulletin on this for some Chevy trucks, may include your model of car. I would check with Chevy to be sure.
The code means the computer has received a reading from the throttle position sensor that is out of range and not what it should be.
The throttle actuator control module would need to be tested to proceed.

Subject:LSJ, L61, LK5, L52, LL8 Engine -- Reduced Engine Power, MIL/SES Light, DTC P1516, P2135, P2138 (Replace PCM)

Models:2005-2006 Chevrolet Cobalt, Cobalt SS, Malibu

VORTECTM 2.8L I-4, 3.5L I-5, 4.2L I-6 Cylinder Engine (VINs 8, 6, S -- RPOs LK5, L52, LL8)



Attention: The following bulletin information is only to be used if the customer has returned for REPEAT repairs for DTCs P1516, P2135 and/or P2138.



Condition

Some customers may comment on engine operation in the Reduce Engine Power mode with the MIL/SES light illuminated. This condition may be repeated and upon investigation, the technician may find the following DTCs set as current or in history:

• DTC P1516 Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance
• DTC P2135 Throttle Position (TP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation
• DTC P2138 Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation
Cause

This condition of a repeat DTC P1516, P2135 and/or P2138 may be caused by an internal concern with the PCM.

Important: DO NOT replace the APP sensor. Inspect the PCM build date first.

Before following the diagnostic information in SI on DTCs P1516, P2135 and/or P2138, an inspection of the PCM serial number year and Julian (PCM build) date will be necessary to determine if the PCM will need to be replaced to correct the repeat DTC P1516. Refer to Engine Control Module Replacement in SI in order to remove the PCM. Refer to the above graphic illustration (1) for the location of the PCM serial number.

The serial number is read left to right. The last digit of the year is the 9th character and the Julian date is comprised of the 10th, 11th and 12th characters and is used to determine the PCM build date. Refer to the example below to read a build date from the PCM serial number:

* 8 6 Y N AU K 1 5 3 2 5 0 R P N *

If the PCM year and Julian dates are between 5182 and 5304 , replace the PCM. Refer to the Part Catalog to order the correct PCM for your vehicle application, if necessary.

Vehicles with PCM built outside the dates should refer to SI diagnostics for DTCs P1516, P2135 and/or P2138

01 camaro drive by wire reduced engine speed


This is what I find from other webpost..

Condition:
Some customers may comment on an MIL/SES light Illuminated with the" Reduced Engine Power" message or indicator displayed. A technician may find two or more of the following DTCs stored in the ECM:

P060E : Control Module Throttle Position (TP) System Performance

P1516 : Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance

P2135 : Throttle Position (TP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation

P2138 : Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation

Cause:
A battery voltage drop during the cranking cycle may cause the codes to set and place the vehicle into the reduce engine power mode.

Correction:
Test and charge the battery using the steps below.

Important: A low voltage condition may cause at least two of the following DTCs to set.

P060E : Control Module Throttle Position (TP) System Performance

P1516 : Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance

P2135 : Throttle Position (TP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation

P2138 : Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation


Perform a Diagnostic System Check. Refer to Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle in SI.
Check for DTCs and review the Freeze Frame/Failure Records to determine if sufficient ignition voltage was present when the DTC set.
- If the ignition voltage was low, then check for a possible battery drain. Refer to Battery Electrical Drain/Parasitic Load Test.

- If the ignition voltage was sufficient when the code set, proceed with normal SI diagnosis for the code(s) set.

Test and recharge the battery using Bulletin 02-06-03-009 or latest version on "Battery Charging Tips'.
Clear all DTCs.
