Take your vehicle to a certified ford dealership so a ford mechanic can look at it. I think its your gas pedal, but anyway stop driving the vehicle if its in this condition its not worth you endangering your life or the life of others just to get around the block.

Has anyone experienced and fixed oil leakage problem from the intake manifold and throttle body on 2001 TS Holden Astra 1.8l ? Thanks Hoffy

HI normaly the only areas i would look at other than possible head gasket,Check oil level is correct, is there is a blockage in the engine breathing side (possibly internal of rocker cover) sludged up. Or possible excessive crankcase pressure of course any one of these could lead onto the other if all the above check out ok then a cylinder leakage test should be carried out.(this is different to a compression test).Good Luck

Ford f-150 2006 stalls out while driveing

Had same problem, changed the gas pump module-problem solved

Having the same problem on a 2005 4.3l....... replaced plugs, dist. cap, coils, and cam sensor. o2 sensor is good. idles great till you push the gas, then it misfires. timing was checked it was fine. ...

Something is probably leaning out the mixture when you open the throttle. It seems that any ignition issues have been ruled out.

So, check the following: fuel filter clogged, low fuel pump pressure, the fuel pressure regulator could be stuck at the idle setting, the EGR valve could be stuck open, faulty throttle position sensor (TPS) or circuit, faulty manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor, faulty or dirty manifold air flow (MAF) sensor, faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor, and an air leak into the intake duct or manifold between the MAF and the throttle body. I think if the intake manifold gasket had a leak, it would be misfiring at idle.

Ask the shop if any of the above checks have already been accomplished. I'll bet most of them have, but one may have been overlooked.

My car does not idle and has a miss at reves how do i find where the problem is ?

You don't mention the model or year, which make a BIG difference.

Possible causes of poor idle:

Vacuum hose leak or intake air intake path leak.

Dirty or loose throttle body.

Throttle body IAC motor is jammed, see above. Fix is to remove the throttle body and clean it.

Dirty air cleaner.

Miss at revs...

Old plug wires or plugs.

Bad distributor coil, will also cause hard start when cold.

Timing could off setting.

I was told by my Ford Service Department that my Intake and Throttle Body needs cleaning...How can I do that?

Disconnect the accelerator cable from the throttle body as well as the electrical connectors for the throttle position sensor and the idle speed control solenoid then disconnect the plastic air intake duct, remove the four bolts securing the throttle body assembly to the intake manifold and remove it.
Clean it out using an old toothbrush and a can of throttlebody and air intake cleaner , then reinstall it by reversing the steps above.

Where do I spray the starter fluid (air intake?) for Chrysler Silhouette. Ran out of gas and it seems carburetor needs starter fluid to kick it..not sure where air intake is locater.. or where to open carb...

there is a large tube that goes to your throttle body (you do not have a carb), remove it and spray there-be careful, starter fluid is highly explosive, spray 2 or 3 short bursts into the top of the throttle body opening, and install the tube (you don't have to tighten the clamp). You may have to repeat this a few times, if you can only get the car to run for a few seconds 3 or 4 times, and it will not run on it's own, you have a fuel delivery problem, and no amount of starter fluid is going to fix it.

2001 Galant won't stay on.

Looks like gum and carbon deposits have clogged some critical parts in the engine, such as injectors.
You would need to get to the 'throttle-body'.
1. Trace the big intake-air hose to where it ends on top of the engine. This is the throttle -body.
2. Loosen the clamp that's holding the big-intake air hose. Pull off the intake air hose from the throttle-body.
3. Spray some "Throttle Body & Carburettor cleaner into the throttle-body. You could use the entire can.
4. Wipe off excess gas from the throttle-body with a piece of rag.
5. Reconnect the intake air hose, and check if the
problem has disappeared.

1995 neon stalling intermitinly when deacelerating

Is it stalling at idle, or while driving? Have you performed a Throttle Body Service? The Tps usually wouldn't cause a stalling problem at idle, and it would generally throw a check engine light. The Idle air control valve, on the other hand, could be clogged full of carbon and not allowing any or enough airflow through to the enging. You should remove the throttle body, pull out the idle air control valve, and if it is dirty, clean thoroughly with any throttle body cleaner from a parts store.
