Check the throttle cable between the pedal and the throttle body generally when they get old they fray up near the body and get stuck. If it looks to be OK see if you can spray it with wd40 or other solvent, right into the cable cover, disconnect it from body and work it back and forth. If it does not free up have it replaced right away.If that does not help, disconnect cruise control temporarily and see if problem continues.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Not step on the accelerator of vehicle automatic speed


Automatic vehicle at the beginning will automatically forward, but the speed is not too fast, because the automatic mechanism principle, high running loose throttle speed decreased than manual slow some, is a normal phenomenon. use gna 600 to diagnostic If the initial automatic acceleration, speed has a problem, the problem generally appear in the idle adjustment problems, such as: solar term door fault, the intake system leakage phenomenon, cause idle setting, you can go to your car repair station for inspection repair, in order to accurately determine fault.

It surges at idle and stumblesunder mild


I want u to clean the air intake valve and idle speed control valve, follow the procedure below.

Here are the common cause of surges, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

let me know in a few days if this helps.

My 99 Ford taurus tends to acellerate for a few seconds when Im driving at a low speed or slowing down..Why does that happen?


HI. there can be many issues here that can cause what you are experiencing at this time. I will list some areas that you should inspect below.

1. Inspect the fresh air intake hose. this hose may be clogged or damaged. replace if needed.
2. Inspect the Fuel pump. This device may have low pressure at this point and, during a correction when in transit, it will cause a surge. this low pressure state can be caused by low voltage or a bad pressure regulator as well. inspect this device thoroughly. replace if needed.
3. Inspect the Intake Manifold Gasket. this gasket may be leaking, worn or, damaged. any issues with this particular gasket will cause surges(erratic Accelerations). replace if damage is shown.
4. Inspect the fuel filter for clog's. if the filter is clogged, it will cause surges as well. replace if needed.
5. Inspect each fuel injector for malfunctioning properties. if the fuel injector(s) are worn or dirty, this will cause many issues with the idle and acceleration as well. test accordingly.
6. Insect all O2 sensors for there operational values. these sensors, if malfunctioning, can cause surging as well. test accordingly for wiring issues and defective sensor housings.(if the O2 sensors are bad, you will have a check engine light on)..

You will find the issue in one or more areas above. inspect thoroughly in each listed area above for faults.

Please rate and god bless:)
