Question about 1987 Ford Thunderbird
When I maintain crusing speed with my foot on the accelerator, the car will do a hesitating ****.. when I take my foot off the accelerator, it stops, when I accelerate quickly it does not do it. I have replaced the fuel injectors and the last mechanic did not find anything when hooked up to the diagnostic machine..
1987 t-bird 2.3 turbo coupe Car starts and idles, starts a little hard but idles wont rev past 1000 rpm when you push throttle to the floor the car dies checked fuel pressure at the rail 40-42 pounds. Could it be the throttle position sensor? where should I go from here

Sounds similar to our problem: idle too fast; hesitating, surging, especially on freeway. Our mechanic replaced the throttle dashpot, which has an electric motor and gears -- gears on ours were stripped and he said computer could not sense where throttle position was, thus the hesitating. But unlike yours, this did cause a trouble code that he read and knew the problem. Part cost $188 new, and somewhat hard to find. That fixed our problem. Car runs really nice now.
