1 Answer

I have 2004 Ford Explorer. I gave my truck an oil change and also chg the air filter. After I was done for some reason. My truck turns on, but it just idles, but I hit the gas and nothen happens. I hit every gear and nothen happens. I was told I will need to replace the Throttle Body or maybe Clean the Throttle Sensor. Can you please let me know if this is true?

Check to make sure that you have not dislodged any plugs to any sensors.while replacing the air filter you may have unplugged the air flow meter plug.or even the throttle body control,that would be rare though.
Things do fault even when we are working on something else but I would concentrate on anything you may have pulled off without realising,or dislodged with your arms etc.hope this helps or get back to me with your findings.

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?

New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.

Remove transmission pan, unbolt filter replace with new one. MAKE sure that new filter has o-rings on it. Use some oil to lube new o-rings. Reinstall pan with new gasket. Tough part now, depending on what transmission you have it may have to be filled thru pan (if no dipstick).
