it could be either --throttle body sticking open will cause constant acceleration when u lift off pedal-cableless accelerator [electric gas pedal ]if a sensor or electronic part shorts out can open throttle body causing acceleration- would need to have it diagnosed to find out which problem is correct

The first you should be taking when getting error code should be to replace the faulty spark plugs and their respective wiring. Also check for faulty distributor and ignition coil. If everything till now is fine then and only then go for cleaning throttle body.

My 1993 honda accord sputters when accelerating


If you can't answer when the last time you changed the fuel filter it might not be a bad idea to change it. It could also be a vacuum leak as older cars ran on vacuum controls for emissions and things like that. listen for a possible whistle when accelerating or air being sucked in like a vacuum cleaner. Could also be a bad map sensor, or O2 sensor.

First check for any cracked pipes leading into the intake manifold If all OK (with no codes showing it probably is OK) try checking the fuel pressure regulator. If you smell fuel from the pressure regulator vacuum side arm (when the vacuum line has been disconnected) it needs to be replaced.

Starts with acceleration once warm starts fine already changed maf sensor.


Question isn't exactly clear. If you mean that you have to press the accelerator to get the car to start, you probably need to replace the Idle AIr Control Valve (IAC). Other possible causes include a fault throttle sensor or a vacuum leak.

2000 bmw 323i P0173 & P0170 trouble codes


Hello There

These are very common codes on BMW's which can also be false codes, try clearing the codes and run the test again they may not come up again.
With regards to the sound which you thought was a vacum leak there a breather pipe which runs under the plastic engine cover near the injectors which always gets a tear init which will need replacing.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.
