When accerating and let off throtle it does not back off then very slowly, but is fine at slow accerating

it could be a dirty throttle plate/shaft or a bad/sticking throttle cable. also if the return spring is weak can cause this as well.

Throttle relearn video you tube

Simply disconnect both battery terminals after installation of the replacement Throttle body. Hold the two battery terminals together for 1 minute, then reconnect the battery terminals to the battery. Be advised that use of aftermarket throttle body parts may cause the fault code to stay in memory, due to non standard electronics in them. If the throttle position sensors fail [part of the throttle pedal assembly] the fault code may still stay in memory. I've had a number of GM trucks which required replacement of both the throttle pedal assembly & throttle body assembly to correct the fault. The vast majority of aftermarket parts are now made in China or the third world. Quality control on these items is almost non-existent. It is very hard to find top quality aftermarket parts now. Engine sensors, electronic controls and engine mounts are three areas where I now use only dealer supplied parts. I've had to many headaches and wasted time dealing with defective aftermarket parts.

Ok. My F-150 2004 Ford has a rough idle. It will die when i sometimes come to a stop. Took it to a dealer and they put on the computer and they found the throttle body actuator code in the system. Suspect...

What the dealer told you & what they do, is replace
the entire throttle body for no reason, other than they
can't diagnose their own products & they make money
off you

There are no computers used to diagnose or work on any
motor vehicles
A professional scan tool only sees what the PCM (vehicle
computer) sees & that is where all the problems start

A (TACM) throttle actuator control motor ,is part of the
throttle body & is not replaceable & the whole assy is over
$600.00 plus their unnecessary abuse of labor

All you need is spark plugs that do not have over 60,000
miles on them.
Spray the MAF Sensor with CRC MAF Cleaner & the main
problem you have is solved with spraying the sticking throttle
plate with CRC Throttle Body Cleaner, so it works & you do
not loose throttle position or % & get TACM Codes or
get wacked for a Grand by a dealer, which you should never
be at after the warrantee runs out

Also replace the (2) front O2 Sensors at 100,000 miles

The montero runs fine but will not idle if you keep it accerated it wont die other wise it will

I had the same problem with mine, I just adjusted the idle speed by tightening the throttle cable at the throttle body located on the top of the engine at the intake manifold. It's ran fine since, about 3 years now and the problem has not repeated itself, hope this helps.

Driving 328I into parking garage and here a slight click and accelerator no longer working. Car starts fine goes into every gear but no accelerator. Could this be a cable issue?

yes it could be, just check entire cable to throttle body, it could be broke. I dont know if this is a dealer item. but you can get a new cable cheaper at a auto parts store. good luck!

Full throttle all the time

We actually have a TSB for the drive by wire systems that calls for both a TPS sensor/actuator replacement but it's required that you also do a PCM reflash at the same time. If you put in the new updated part without doing your reflash then you've found your problem.

Take it to the dealer and get the reflash done.

Have you tried cleaning the throttle body. Use throttle body friendly cleaner as it has a special coating that you do not want to damage it. Clean the sutt out real good where the butterfly valve is, inside and outside.

Engine doen't stay idle at steady rpms rev up and down by itself

Either you have a vacuum leak, a bad throttle body position sensor, or a bad throttle body.

If the throttle body is drive by wire (electronic) then it would be a bad throttle body.

If the throttle body is drive by cable (manually driven by a cable connected to the gas peddle) then it would be a bad throttle position sensor.

If the throttle body is bad the check engine light wil lbe on. If it is on have your codes read at your local parts dealer for free, and this will give you a clue as to which pices/parts you need to replace.

Have the car leak tested and the vacuum linse inspected for leaks as well.
