You need to have your engine flushed and cleaned out. One or more of your spark plugs aint firing. You need to replace them all to include the wires as well. If you dont get your engine flushed, you could blow your engine up.

SOURCE: 2000 toyota tundra has no throttle response during extreme cold

This throttle body has a TPS ( throttle position sensor) and a Accelerator pedal sensor on it. The TPS is on the drivers side and the APS is on the pass side of the throttle body. When this happened your check engine lite came on then went off when it warmed up and acted normally. The code is still in History codes. Check it with a scan tool. I foget the code number but if it come up with the APS code in History, replace that sensor....not the TPS. It is a sealed sensor that gets moisture in it when the seal deteriates and it freezes in very cold weather.

It was very cold, the car sat in the garage for 3 days with very lower fuel, now it idles rough and sounds rough, did I ruin something by not having enough fuel when cold?

No,low fuel isn't your problem. If there's enough fuel for the fuel pump to pick up your car should run okay. You haven't ruined anything. It's not your fault.

It is possible that a low fuel level - very low indeed - has allowed debris/dirt into the system and is causing a blockage. However, I think this is quite unlikely to be the problem you have.

You say the car idles rough - does it drive at speed okay? If it drives okay at speed you can rule out most fuel problems .. most.

Backtrack a bit .. has your car ever ran/idled roughly before? Cold weather can exacerbate a problem.

It could be the cold weather- fuel and injections system have cold start devices or sensors of one sort or another. It may be a faulty sensor. Get somebody to do a diagnostic check for you

Don't have throttle body. Have injectors. They were cleaned about 2 months ago. Almost all sensors are new. Still se problem. I think fuel pressure regulator but not certain

Okay... David ,

Yes... Pressure regulator is a good GUESS.. but a FUEL test gauge is a lot cheaper... and your OBD (on board diagnostic) system has already logged information (FREE) that would tell you MUCH MUCH more

Personally I think you have been given some outstanding answers... so far.

You're tossing questions faster than beads at the Mardi-Gras.

Oxygen sensor/code reader was a really good one...

Just for openers... if you have an accelerator... your car
has a throttle body... it may be called by any number of names... but your accelerator control... moves more air through the engine in response to your "control"...

Throttle positions, temp and AIR MASS are all vital.

You need to assess exactly what YOU have been saying...

If your car INDEED has FULL POWER when it is cold... climbs hills pulls load... you are PROBABLY okay ignoring the catalytic converter... Again already suggested.

But "clean" was not the concern on the catalytic converter...
If your exhaust is restricted in any way it will keep your engine fro running... but - - it is not temperature sensitive.

Nor (i suspect) is your fuel pressure!!

What it could be (by cost)...

- a serious vacuum leak ... which should have ODB-coded.
(no cost: pour water from a cup around manifold gasket area...

- temperature sensor

- cold start valve... (in lieu of choke on fuel Injection systems)

- Or your main ECU... (fuel injection control board)

You already seem to be amassing spare parts...
(I totally agree) a spare ECU is always good to have!

Good luck!

Well i had ignition module replaced new, plugs , wires, and cleared all codes and ran okay but if you kicked in really hard it would cut out like pushing a clutch in. Drove out one night drove ok and ran...

There is a fuel inertia switch..that is the law.. It is located either outside by the connections to the fuel pump or on the pump itself. I doubt that is the problem as you say the pump is pressurizing. May be a security system issue or pcm issue.. GM cars are very sensitive to voltage changes of any type...Take it back to the mechanic.

2005 jeep grand cherokee transmission control system error

Okay, wish you would of listed the code # but thats okay, the way you explained it sounds like the gear selector switch is bad, this switch is located on the side of ******, the computer and ****** think its in d3 this is cause most of the time 90% of the time to a bad selector switch also called a neutral safety switch,

replace switch reset codes and check ****** fluid , not sure how far you drove like this but if fluid is brunt i would have it flushed, not drain and fill but flushed, a BG flush.

I think with a flush and selector switch you will be all set, good day.

I have a 1998 Plymouth voyager and the climate control lights are flashing. I ran a test i found on the internet and got it down to two lights flashing(the ac and the recirculate). I got it to where the...

OK got your message on the other post (About the van) I am assuming that your Voyager is equipped with Automatic Climate Control. Follow the instructions below and you will get a better idea of what is wrong with your system.

1. To enter calibration/diagnostics test, set parking brake. Start and warm engine to normal operating temperature. With engine idling, turn blower switch to high. Turn mode switch to panel. Open all outlets. Move temperature to full cold.
2. Press and hold rear wash and rear wiper buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds (Until ALL LEDs illuminate). All LEDs should illuminate for 5 seconds. Rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs will flash alternately during calibration/diagnostics test.
3. After approximately 60 seconds, if only the rear wiper button LED is flashing, calibration is successful and the system is okay. If rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs are flashing, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are present. (See "Reading Diagnostic Codes" below)
4. To exit calibration/diagnostics test at any time, press the rear window defogger button, rear wiper button, or cycle the ignition off and then on. Test will automatically terminate 15 minutes after calibration/diagnostics is entered.

Reading Diagnostic Codes
1. Perform calibration/diagnostics test. If a DTC is present after calibration/diagnostics test has been performed, system will flash rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs in sequence. Rear wiper represents code level, and intermittent rear wiper button LED represents code value.
2. Each time the rear wash button is depressed, rear wiper button LED wil cycle to the next code level in numeric sequence. After code level 5 is reached, rear wiper button LED will cycle back to code level 1. See table below.

Install new motor in 91 jeep 4.0L all new parts (water pump ,rad, hoses, plugs... ran fine going down hill started to over heat.. when to a shop and they check thermostat. seem ok replace and drove home...

You probably have an air lock. Remove a heater hose and get all the air out. Then run it with the rad cap off until it warms up. You should see the water level drop when it finally goes, or if you got the air out with the heater hose, it should be okay.

Check Engine Light!

Sounds like you will need to have the codes read at SAAB dealer to confirm no fautly sensors have caused this to happen.
There may still be a bad component that is triggering lamp.
