88 isuzu 4x4 Truck 2.6L. Starts then dies in 2 sec on cold start.

I would try cleaning the throttle valve body and also the automatic idle speed control valve mounted to the throttle body, this is a common symptom of a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve. Use a product called "CRC" Throttle valve cleaner, run the engine and spray it into the air intake of the engine with the supply hose removed, hold the throttle up while you do this as it will try to stall, use up about half the can and then shut it down and disconnect the battery NEGATIVE cable for 5 min's to reset the system learned strategy, drive it for a few days and see if this corrects the problem.

My 04 ford explorer 4.0L acceleration petal it's not working . Can it be a sensor?

open the hood you should see the throttle cables on the side of the throttle body twist that monster the cables are wrapped around thats your throttle if the motor doesnt rev up its a problem in the throttle body if it does then your throttle cable may be snapped somewhere

Disconnect the battery cables from the battery, wait about 30 minutes, then reconnect the cables. This should reboot the computer.

No accelerator, engine revs between

Always turn the other car first before connecting the cables, otherwise the computer can be damaged. Try disconnecting the battery for five minutes, then connect them again and start the engine. Hopefully this will restore normal operation.

My daewoo nubira is running to fast when in neutral

On the side of the throttle body in quite a few different applications is a screw that you can turn one way or another to raise and lower idle.

This screw will just be screwed into the throttle body and not a type of screw to hold something on or together.

When you say accelerator adjustment do you mean where the throttle cable connects to the throttle body? Because that is another place you can check. You can possibly put some slack in the cable to let the revs come down. I'm not sure about your exact application but its something easy to look into anyways.

Well I hope you get those revs down,

If you found this helpful please give me a fixya rating and thanks!

could be a bad throttle position sensor.. try this... follow the air inlet to your intake... on the side you should see a cable going around a curved bracket... on the side of that (your throttle body) should be either a black or a grey sensor... kinda looks like a P shape... with your car off... unplug it... start your car and see if it idles better.... i wouldn't advise driving it unplugged if it works... it just stops bad information from going to your computer and while unplugged your CPU runs off base programs... if your idle smooths out then simply replace your TPS :D

When i push the gas peddal it doesn't rev up.

is the check engine light on?? you most likely have a problem with the throttle assembly. It is electronic, not cable driven, so that's why you can rev it. Nissan has had some problems with those. Normaly code P0507 ICS system comes up. But I don't know if your check engine light is on, but it should be, if throttle failed. There is also a switch (electronic) by the gas pedal, which sends all the signals to ECM to be processed and then to the throttle assembly. But those switches (by gas pedal) have been bulletproof. So I would be looking a the throttle asembly again. Good luck.
