Make sure that your clean air assembly is connected correctly, all sensors are working and plugged in and make sure your air filter is clean.

Not getting throttle response. Truck limps Check engine code reads that it is "Throttle body actuator motor." So I replaced the entire throttle body and the symptoms are still there. What is wrong?

You did not follow the diagnostics for the fault code, fault codes indicate what system has a problem but not what particular part of the system, just that a problem exists in the throttle control system. You need to have this diagnosed with a factory scanner

Bad throttle position sensor, or MAS sensor is faulty. Check fuel pressure if these first two don't fix it.

Lurches under a load , then can push accelerater to floor with no response wont idle and stutters under power

Your TPS switch is on one side of the butterfly plate in the air induction system. Disconnect the connector to this part and hook an Ohmmeter to the TPS unit.

Then open and close the throttle by hand and observe the Ohmmeter action. It should be smooth to the throttle response. If it lapses and jumps, the TPS is bad.

My gas pedel gets stuck half way down some times

The throttle position sensor is most likely bad or it just may be the throttle cable but I think it is the Throttle position sensor it is located near the throttle valve follow the throttle cable to the end this is where the throttle valve is and the Throttle position sensor is located near the throttle valve on the opposite side it will have a plug going to it and it is held on with two torx head screws purchase the tools and replace.

My 92 rodeo starts and idles but splutters at half throttle.the only way i can drive it is flat to the floor.

Low fuel pressure. Check the fuel pump, filter, lines (one might be pinched) and injectors. Try using an unclogging/cleaning additive.

Acts like motor is in strain or no power very slow throttle response

Have you checked fuel pressure? Also changed fuel filter? Could be throttle position sensor or mass airflow sensor if you have one on this car. checked plugs, wires etc?

Boat not responsive

hi, thats a little motor for a big boat. how big is the boat? you can try changing the timing by loosening the distributor cap and turning it slightly to see if that helps or you can get a different prop that has less pitch on the blades which will spin the prop faster in the water and keep you up in powerband better. maybe call a marine boat shop and tell them your problem, maybe they have a trick or two. happy boating J
