How do i fix a throttle

If the engine is speeding up and slowing down without driving it you might have a vacuum leak. If it is doing it while driving at a certain engine speed it could be a sensor called the (TPS ) Throttle position sensor. If someone has recently worked on it they might have bumped a vacuum hose off

Check engine light on, code # p1676 and PO 113

I don't show a code 113 for a Buick, but the code means the signal from the air temp sensor is high, which means the air temp is below zero or the sensor is faulty, or a problem with the wiring to the sensor.
Code 1676 is a problem with the canister purge solenoid which is how the computer vents the fuel tank. Could also be a problem with the vent for the tank.

It could be a bad coolant sensor(new or not) could be the map. Get some electrical parts cleaner and take the map out and clean or replace it. It is a very easy job to do. If your unsure do a search on it and watch a few videos on it.

The temp sensor for your transmission is bad. It is inside the transmission.(Not an external sensor). Can be changed without changing other components. Mine did the same thing. Ford Dealer changed it out.

The engine light stays on in my 2000 town and country. When the light first came on it shifted into second gear and would not come out of it. Upon reading the manual I realized that this is a safety...

Sounds like a bad connector to me. Pull the connector off the sensor and look at the terminals. Do the holes look bigger than the pins? If yes, maybe you can use a paper clip or small screwdriver to close the terminals a bit so they will grip the pins tighter. Also check the wires on the connector for fraying or thinness. You may need to replace the wiring all the way back to the computer to fix this problem. Let me know if you have questions. Your sensor looks like this:

Have you by chance checked your fluid? If not, you may want to do that, it could show that you need brakes if it is low. If that doesn't do it, the mechanic may be right about a sensor, but just the wrong one. Hope that helps.

Have a 2001 Dodge Durango. Temp is hot, coolant is cold. Replaced thermostat still running hot 2001 durango stuck in 4 wheel drive. 2 wheel drive blinks

If you havent already, leave the radiator cap off of your radiator while you start the vehicle. Be sure the engine is cold, you could get hurt if not because the coolant will build up pressure. If the cap is off, no pressure will build. Wait a while for the vehicle to heat up, look in the opening, and see if the coolant is flowing. If so, could be a bad fan, or gummed up radiator......if NOT your turbine on your water pump could be bad, OR, by chance, the thermostat is not working.
