    What is actual code you received? TPS is not a dead pedal btw...



1 Answer

Codes do not tell you to change anything,
where did you learn that from?

A repair shop will be cheaper in the long run,
than throwing parts at it

EDC 0638 man truck what's problem

Clean the throttle body and add Seafoam to the fuel tank and run out a tank of fuel, check for worn or sticky throttle plate,
if none of that works check the plug on your gas peddle and the plug at the throttle actuator on the throttle body for corrosion and tight fit, if no problems found, you may need any one of the three components
the throttle actuator
the throttle peddle position sensor
the ECC or ECM (engine computer) (check all plugs on it too)

1990 chevy c1500 hesitation and stumbling during acceleration

Based on what you said, I would say the engine is starving for fuel.
The computer has to be disabled to set timing - there should be a procedure for that.
I would start with checking fuel pressure at the throttle body. If the TPS is faulty you should have a fault code in the computer.
If the fuel pressure is ok and there are no codes, I would suspect the injectors.

Wants to stall with lite gas peddle application

You could check and clean throttle body and iac control, see if it helps? Check the throttle position sensor. Does the fuel injector spray pattern look ok?
I would want to check fuel trims, to see if running rich or lean? Any more the 02 sensor is part of a tune-up.
Do you have good engine vacuum at idle? If this a high mileage engine, I'm not sure it will ever run perfect?
I don't know litre size of engine?

Engine light comes on and then it just idols gas peddle does not excelerate on a 2000 F350 7.3 liter diesel

The Check engine light is the first place to start. UNFORTNUATLEY the code readers that the A/P stores have for sale and use won't read Powerstroke specific codes. You need to take it to a shop that uses a code reader that will or the Ford Dealer. Just a guess, but if your truck has the "flly by wire" throttle pedal ( no cable), then I would suspect the throttle pedal validation sensor. There is a known issue for a "dead spot" in the sensor in the go pedal assembly.

Codes p0113,p2104,p2111 pops up on 03 lincoln ls 3.9...any solutions

PO-113 Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Sensor 1 Circuit High Output

P-2104 Throttle Actuator Control Sysrem-Forced Idle

P-2111 Throttle Actuator Control System -Stuck Open

Without the vehicle,I won't tell you ,that you need to replace anything

The Throttle Actuator, is similar to Toyotas issuses with the gas peddle

To Diagnose what appears to be multipule issues,you need to check out the gas peddle sensors,the throttle body and the MAF Sensor,which has the AIT ,air intake sensor,part of it.

You could carefully remove the MAF and spray only with -CRC MAF Cleaner. Make sure the throttle plate moves relatively free. If you spray it,again Penzoil Throttle Body Spray or similar product

Most likely,your going to need a professional scan tool and some experience,to work out your problems.

Push gas peddle and once i reach about half throttle the engine bogs down almost as if it is going to stall Its not the fuel pump or the filter when vehicle is in park and i push peddle to the floor the...

check your TPS throtel position sensor. and the vehicle has a rev limiter so it wont over rev n park and nutral. but thats the first thing i would check do to many TPS's wear out and can get dead spots in them.
