Problem with 02 silverado

I have a silverado 1500 V6 The truck takes forever to accelerate using the gas pedal. It wont even reach any higher rpm then 2500-3k even with my foot to the ground. On the highway it takes forever to get up to speed, however if i put it in cruise control and accelerate with the button it accelerates quickly and goes higher in the rpm.

SOURCE: smoke coming from exhaust at higher speeds or when putting foot d

If the smoke is blue, it is burning oil. If it is black or dark grey it is running way too rich, like your choke is stuck on. That would also explaing the jerky acceleration and poor response. Your fuel consumption will also skyrocket.

When i accelerate gradually, no problem. When I push the gas pedal to gain speed quickly, the car loses power, like it is going to stall.


This could be a clogged air filter and /or fuel filter. start there. Also a dirty throttle body can cause this. Use brake clean to clean this. you only need to clean the inside of the throttle body , use a small brush and clean as far as it will reach, also clean the back of the plate. Start it (might take a minute) and spray the brake clean into the throttle at higher rpm's.

p1545 is a throttle control malfuction code

You can try to reset the throttle body by opening the hood and drivers door then turning your key to the accessory position. You will hear the throttle body whir and click. It may take up to two minutes. Afterward, the car will relearn your habit of driving and adjust accordingly.
