Injectors would be a good place to start, you can either run some fuel cleaner through the system from a parts house or have a shop run aggressive bulk cleaner through. Also have you checked your timing belt if it jumped a tooth that could cause a power loss as well, how long since you've checked the timing belt? If none of the above works make sure you run a fuel pressue test not enough pressure will show up big time at wide open throttle, Good Luck!

Throtle gets stuck wide open i did tps worked for a day always pump to start runs ruff then goes bamm gets stuck wide open help me


You should not need to pump the throttle. That does not have any effect on starting the engine on a fuel injected car.
How do you un-stick the throttle ?

Had 2 problems occur at same time after some repair. 1st. After repair started up an engine runs wide open with no throttle .Checked an cleaned T>P>S. an throttle body . Checked for vacume...


The only way an engine can run Wide open is if the throttle plate is opened all the way, allowing a large volume of air in to the engine. Check the throttle plate and see if it is hung up or possibly the throttle cable is frayed and holding the throttle open. It is not the injectors, they operate on inputs from the PCM.

2001 mercury grand marquis. Engine stutters or hesitates with jerking when lightly accelerating. Seems like an air, fuel, or spark delivery problem. At wide open throttle this problem is not as noticeable....


Start car and use a squirt bottle of water to wet the wires and coil, if you see it spark or run rough one or both are bad, repair the wires first as they are more common.
