Check your throttle cable and if your unsure of where to loate it have someone press and depress the accelerator and you will see it move while looking under your hood make sure its secured in correctly and if it is follow the cable all the way back to the accelerator to make sure its not broken and its hooled up securly to the accelerator.

Gas peddle won't produce rpm's. kind of a rough idle. Vehicle will move when put into gear and brake released but pressing gas does nothing.. (automatic)


did you check and see if the cable snapped for the accelerator, have someone push the peddle a few times and you watch to see if the accelerator lever that the cables connect to move if not they obviously broke and need to be replaced

Most chain auto parts stores will scan the codes free or loan you a scanner to use on site. Scan the code (even if the light has gone off, it maybe held in the memory) and see what it comes back with. Post the code number here or Google it

1996 merc grand marq...check engine light stays on ....and the car accelerates wothout foot on the gas peddle???


nine times out of ten your check engine light means you need a new gas cap. as for your accellerater that could be a linkage issue , if you have a broken motor mount the engine will lean against the linkage . the harder it leans the faster it goes ... the faster it goes the harder it leans

Engine Turns Off when running AC


Your throttle speed sensor(idle speed sensor)is not working properly.It's job is to keep the the engine at the proper rpm range when you are not applying the gas peddle.This is the most likely cause.
