Question about Cars & Trucks
More than likely, none of what you replaced was defective in the first place! You very like have a defective TPS, also known as a throttle position sensor. They are mechanically variable resistors, which get intermittent and JUMPS in resistance instead of a smooth change in resistance. You might also want to check your valve timing. I suspect you have a timing belt, but it could be a chain. But whether a chain or a belt, if the valve timing is wrong, it could idle okay, but be nearly powerless when trying to rev up. Good luck!
