It could be a weakening fuel sending unit or fuel pump. You can try adding an additive to the gas called HEAT. You can find this at your local auto store. It may help thin out the gas a little.

What else can i check or fix

Unfortunately, the newer thottle systems need to be timed by the dealer for compatibility. Did you repace both the pedal and the throttle body assembly? If it only gave the code for the one. It will need to go to the dealer regardless to get programed. It s not too expensive.

Loss of throttle

That error is not the O2 sensor. It is tjhe throttle or gas pedal postion sensor. It is on the floorboard attached to the foot feed for the throttle. IT gets dirty, wet, loose etc. Check it, clean it, reseat it and if all else fails...replace it.

Push gas pedal to fast and the car dies when warmed up but fine when cold

that is a bad idle air control valve. it is located on the thottle body next to the thottle position sensor

My 2002 Hyundai Accent has about 65,0000 miles and has three issues that I'm hoping are all caused from the same thing. It started "bucking" a few weeks ago and this was first sign of issue....

There's a good chance the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) has gone bad. Have an electrician bench test it for bad spots (in the potentiometer). You may also have carbon/soot buildup on the throttle body thottle plate causing it to stick. Standard throttle/choke plate cleaner will take care of the throttle plate.

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?

I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

How do I replace the throttle pedal position on 2001 Durango

TPS is located on the side of the thottle body, and is secured by three torx screws.
Removing the air hat on top allows better access.

AZ has the part for ~$40 or so. TPS 333 if I recall correctly.
