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

2005 doge neon. sputters on occasion when i excellerate quickly. will still run fine if peddle is part way and idles fine. If I shut engine off the problem goes away but will start again the next day. ...

I have seen fuel pressure issues cause this. Fuel filter, or fuel pump. However, I have also seen the catalytic converter cause this issue. The honeycomb, located inside the catalytic converter, breaks up and will block the exhaust when you accelerate. Engine power is lost, until you let off the gas and let it idle. Then, the chunk falls down from the exhaust port, and it runs fine again. Until you get on the gas and increase the velocity of the exhaust, and the chunk blocks the exhaust gasses again. Good luck

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

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.
