On start up the engine starts fine and idles but wont rev up

On start up the engine starts fine and even idles fine but when I push the accelerator pedal it does not pick up revs even if I push the pedal to the floor there is no response, however after the engine has had time to warm up it slowly starts to rev up again and the vehicle is driveable but underpowered. Anyone have any experience with this sort of problem. Any help is appreciated. Cheers.

Why is it that my kia 2002 sportage automatic is experiencing dead acceleration/throttle even if i push pedal


throttle position sensor/ Idle air control sensor no good one or both could be bad if you are parked can you press on the gas and the engine raises the rpm's or does it stay the same could also be accelerator cable broke if no raise in engine rpm's revs up

My 2000 GMC/jimmy suv starts up but doesn't respond or rev up whenI push the accelerator pedal


Look for where the throttle cable connects at the throttle body. If you can move the throttle plate here and get the engine to respond, then the cable is either broken or disconnected at one end or the other. Any other situation doesn't seem likely.

My truck turns on, idles fine but when i give it gas it only goes about 3 mph. when i want to excellerate it goes nowhere


Not quite everything is fine.
Is the check engine light on ?
When you push on the gas pedal, does the engine speed change ?
Can you rev up the engine in park ?
What have you checked so far ?

My Toyota Quantum 2.7GL idles but does not rev up. i ve changed the fuel pump and filter but still it starts, idles but does not rev up when you press the accelerator?


We do not have this model in US, but I assume it is a new model 2016-17. You throttle (and the "rev" ) is controlled by the computer. The fact that your car is idles - should mean that your computer is fine! There are two types of idle control: 1st- when you have a bypass of the throttle, which lets the throttle flop stay close while idling and let's the air into the motor through a bypass and electronically controlled idle switch. Inspect your throttle - the electronic/metal unit located on the large pipe through which the air gets into the motor: if you have a "bypass" for the air then you need to inspect your throttle body as it could be your problem.
2. most likely you do not have a bypass and your idle is controlled by your throttle body, then it is sure working fine and your only issue is that your engine computer does not know that you press the accelerator. Your gas pedal has an electrical unit on it which connects to the engine computer- inspect the connector/wires if all looks fine most likely your accelerator sensor does not work- you need to change the gas pedal unit ( I think it called accelerator sensor).
Good luck.

Engine starts and idles fine, but will not rev up (2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 diesel auto)


If it was a fuel shortage the engine would rev but to limited speed. This is a lack of air to throttle body. Check for clogged air filter and all the piping and the throttle body.

When I go to start my 04 grand prix it sounds like its going to start fine then it just dies. If I push the gas a little as I turn the key it revs up and starts fine. What's the deal?


take a long look at the throttle position sensor and idle air control. Before starting push the accelerator pedal all the a way to the bottom of travel and release quickly. Now try to start. Sometimes the ECU loses track of where the TPS is and pressing the gas pedal on full and releasing can sometimes help reset things. One thing you must do is clean the interior of your throttle body by disconnecting the air ducting and getting in there with a cloth soaked in WD40. If you have an idle air control valve mounted on the throttle body remove it and clean the associated passageways and valve interior. Reassemble and you should notice a difference

The engine will start and idle fine. Engine revs


Definitely an electrical problem. Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.
