Question about 1994 Mazda 929

1 Answer

Intermittently the car will not go over 25-30 miles per hour with the accelerator floored. Other times, the car bounces really badly as if it had a blown front tire (not) or totally worn out shocks (

Intermittently the car will not respond to the throttle, it feels like the engine is held back by brakes (not) or like it is choked down somehow. the throttle may be to the floor and it only goes about 25-30 miles per hour

Hi I am Vortash have seen this fault twice with a different reason each time .. first on was the cam sensor giving the wrong information to the Engine management Unit ... second one was the EMU itself the plug had become dirty and corroded and a clean solved the problem .. with the cam sensor ..was replaced and the fault cured .. The way I found the fault was with a fault code reader an invaluable tool that has saved me many hours of unnecessary work ... regards Vortash

350 V8..revs itself and idles at higher rpm..tap excelerator and goes down to normal

if it is a carby engine then check the settings of the automatcic choke and the throttle cam screw settings
it works in a manner so that when you press on the accelerator the automatic choke flips a cam around and the idle speed screw rests on that cam giving a high idle speed until the engine is hot enough not to need a choke at which point the cam is held clear of the idle screw
if efi engine run the fault codes to check for problem accelerator position sensor or throttle position sensor.

Apply brakes goes to floor engine idle chokes down let off goes back to normal,is thia avacumn leak problem,where to start to find?

Easy peasy ........ air will be fed to master brake cylinder from either carburetor/throttle assembly via a flexible pipe.

Find pipe and take it in turns to spray either end or length with WD40.

When engine rate increases, you've found the leak!!

Engine suddenly revs up, doesn't start well

Could be an automatic choke that causes it to rev up. Traction control is probably a faulty relay

My 2002 Hyundai Accent has about 65,0000 miles and has three issues that I'm hoping are all caused from the same thing. It started "bucking" a few weeks ago and this was first sign of issue....

There's a good chance the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) has gone bad. Have an electrician bench test it for bad spots (in the potentiometer). You may also have carbon/soot buildup on the throttle body thottle plate causing it to stick. Standard throttle/choke plate cleaner will take care of the throttle plate.

The engine ramps up and down both at idle and when driving. I actually lose power and it almost feels like it is running on 3 cylinders, step on gas and it revs up but takes a few seconds to actually...

Sounds like you have a couple of problems. I would start with checking all your vaccum lines with a fine tooth comb. I'd also replace your upstream 02 sensor (the one in the engine compartment, just below the windshield wiper fluid reservoir) sensor and clean your throttle body.

The throttle position sensor responds to the accelerator pedal movement. This sensor is a kind of potentiometer which transforms the throttle position into output voltage and emits the voltage signal to the ECM. In addition, the sensor detects the opening and closing speed of the throttle valve and feeds the voltage signal to the ECM. Idle position of the throttle valve is determined by the ECM receiving the signal from the throttle position sensor. This one controls engine operation such as fuel cut, etc. The throttle position sensor unit has a built-in “wide open and closed throttle position switch,” which is not used to control the engine. For the G35, the throttle position sensor is part of the throttle control actuator.

When coming to a stop , coasting down the engine makes hum sound and then dies, starts OK after that and goes on , very intermittent

This is not going to sound possible but it happened in my 1994 Crown Vic too. If you have traction control part of the system controls an air valve in the air filter intake area. When the traction control senses a difference in rear wheel speed it chokes the engine so you don't spin the wheels.
Your sensors must be dirty or the emergency brake pads are covering the sensors with brake dust. You need to have someone check the rear brakes.

You motor will produce that hum as air is choked off by the traction control.

I have a 1995 Grand Marquis and my check engine light came on a few days ago. The car died today while holding the brake in waiting at a red light. I quickly turned off the car and turned it back on and it...

Most likely culprit is the ETC (electronic throttle control). Different companies call it TPS (throttle position sensor) i.e. but what's happening is when the car is cold, the initial throttle setting is high until it warms up and kicks down to a secondary throttle position. Since these things are monitored electronically, there's nothing you can manually set. The part itself ( i think its TPS in your car) is usually a black component with an outer white layer located under the air filter. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.
