Check your TPS Throttle positioning sensor. Sounds like it has a dead spot in it or it is failing. May also be a wiring harness issue or loose connection at TPS too! If its intermittent then it will soon go out completely. It should be located on your fuel pedal. Remove it and check it with an ohm meter. Check resistance all the way thru from 0-100 percent. When it is not working it should do nothing and show no resistance. When it is working the resistance value will increase and or decrease as you turn the sensor.

It may be due to plugs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or mass airflow sensor. Is your check engine light on?

SOURCE: i have 2007 ford crown victoria ,there is delay in

Hello, I remember reading about a bracket both the Throttle cable and the Cruise cable mounted to. Ford had to add a clip to secure the Cruise cable because the Cruise cable was rubbing the Throttle cable.

Next, Ask your Dealer about the Recall for a part called "Cam Phasers". I know that 2004-2008 Models with 4.6L and 5.4L engines were included. Your car only comes with a 4.6L engine. There is an Extended Warranty of 7 Years and I want to say 90,000 Miles. The Mileage amount keeps changing.

The "Cam Phasers" were used on the DOHC models. The older design uses 1 cam and would have a SOHC Emblem on the Engine. The delay and lack of pep can be caused by valve lag on the DOHC engines. The Phaser was suppose to auto-advance the valve timing but since there were 2 in each engine one bank could be set differently than the other, a terrible condition.

You might try to clean the MAF sensor in the air intake with Electronics cleaner. There is a switch on the Airhorn that has a TPS, throttle position sensor that may not be smoothly picking up your throttle changes. It is the switch attached to the Air Butterfly Plate. Beneath the Air Horn there is sometimes a groove under the Airhorn gasket. This feeds the EGR and makes a difference if it is clogged or clean.

About the only other things to check is a part called the "Idle Air Solenoid" which is the round cylinder object, it has a floating valve that can get dirty and responds to WD40 and to check for Vacuum leaks with a water mist spray or approved choke cleaner (safe for plastics and rubber" while the engine is running. The RPM changes when a leak is found.

I hope my solutions are helpful. You have a lot of new information to check. Would be interested in which solution cured your problem.

How do i check problem with gas pedal to the floor chev impala 2002

How do i replace a ford focus throtle cable

disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle body. follow the throttle cable around the engine and you will find it goes through the fire wall and connects to the gas pedal. disconnect the cable from the gas pedal and pull out of the cab compartment from engine side. Pay close attention to how you disconnected the cable from the gas pedal and from the throttle body because you will have to reverse this procedure when you install the replacement. You will need an assistant who is pretty flexable to connect the cable to the gas pedal. so let the assistant disconnect the old cable from the gas pedal so he or she will know how to connect the new one back to the gas pedal. It was not an easy project for me and it definitely is not as easy as it seems to be. You will need plenty of time, daylight and patience. The replacement cable may be shorter than the original and that ok. Ford has made sure it will work. Use tie-wraps or zip-ties to hold the new throttle cable back in place around the engin. Good luck.

Throttle pedal position sensor "A" circuit low input

Sounds like the Throttle Plate is sticking

You were fooled into changing the TPS because of the code

Not the way you diagnose vehicle issues

You find out why a sensor--- good or bad set the code

Get some CRC Throttle Body Cleaner & follow the instructions

Don't need much sprayed around the throttle plate

Then have someone step on gas pedal to confirm success

May need the key on

Your low input is the throttle not returning to home position

Almost like the sensor was telling you what was wrong

Fun stuff isn't it & not easy to understand

Cable on top of engine broke on throttle what does it do

Replace the cable with one from your local auto parts store or dealer.
It may be for cruise control if your cruise control no longer works.
Or, it may be for the accelerator pedal.

When I press the gas pedal nothing happens until I press it like half way down then it "catches" and takes off, what could be the problem & how can I fix this? Thanks

sounds like the throttle cable is in need of adjustment,push the gas pedal down with your hand to see if it is just free play(only the return spring pressure may be felt if it is)with someone looking at the throttle body for movement.Dont do it up too tight,leave a little slack in the cable.....

Gas pedal broke loose

check where the cable attaches to the throttle body there is a plastic clip that goes to a ball on the throttle more than likely it is broke there.

F250 7.3 L Diesel. Have no use of gas pedal.

Check the throttle linkage make sure nothing is broke also check your throttle body and make sure nothing is stuck. If those check out then check out the pedal itself and make sure that the shaft is pulling the throttle cable the way it is supposed to and no throttle wires are stretched

Gas throttle not working. Found loose part that connects pedal to

Turn car off, push the round throttle under the hood all the way open. Route cable on top and put in the hole, release throttle. That should be about it.

Cruise control and throttle pedal go to a butterfly aperature on throttle body.  Look in the engine compartment and while someone pushs on gas pedal.   Look at the area where the cable comes out and goes around a semicircular widget (throttle body butterfly).  Cruise control has another cable that joins this same plate. Check for slack in cable, clear cable path,  and look for anything in that area that might be broken or routed wrong.  
good luck

Lost pressure in gas peddle

Hmmm well to start the pressure in you gas pedal comes from your throttle body, not your spark plugs. Secondly, there is only one cable going to your gas pedal, the other one is your cruise control cable.

Repair your throttle cable, or the spring on your throttle body is broken. it should be a fairly easy thing to fix.
