  • If you don't replace the throttle body, eventually, you will not have a response when you accelerate (press on the gas pedal) Soon, you won't be driving anywhere. You should replace it as soon as you can.

While starting vehicle ETC warning display vehicle not throttle

This is a warning that something needs to be checked. This happens a lot when a vehicle is jumped with a dead battery. You may have to take to dealer and have ETC reprogramed.
Throttle Control Warning Light More and more vehicles are doing away with the mechanical throttle cable between the driver's foot and the engine throttle body, replacing it with a "drive-by-wire" system. In this system, a throttle pedal sensor sends data to an electronic throttle control computer, which evaluates and relays the throttle request to a specialized electronic throttle motor on the engine throttle body.
The throttle motor opens or closes the actual throttle blade, which increases or decreases the power output of the engine. The throttle control warning light illuminates when a problem is detected in the electronic throttle system.

Where does the fresh air snorkel connect to the valve cover on a 2006 Pontiac torrent? Check engine light is on (P0171 code)?

I believe the one your describing goes from the air inlet tube assy. , up and over the throttle body and goes to the top of the valve cover, under the ignition module (firewall side). If you already paid the dealer to fix this, take it back under warranty,

your vehicle may still be under warranty. Call your local dealer and provide your VIN#, warranty is 60months/60,000 mile powertrain warranty, 96months/80,000 mile emissions warranty. I strongly recommend contacting the dealer before your vehicle hits 60,000 miles.

My 2005 F150 with 5.4 goes to Idle while driving. I pull over, shut it off and restart and runs no problem. Check engine light is on and had the code checked. Its P2104 - Throttle actuator control system -...

For this problem, I looked at the Code results. There are a few parts which can cause it, and in some cases the Dealer will need to install a Data Logger if microwave signals are suspected.

Ford has made modifications to this Throttle body, and parts were backordered for a redesigned throttle body. This may be covered under a Silent warranty and a one on one request for factory assistance.

Or you may try to replace the cheapest part, the throttle position sensor, Several people on the F150 forum changed out that part and it worked. Myself, even changing the sensor, I would want the best throttle body made for my truck. So rather than a patch, if a free factory replacement were offered, I'd take that.

Contact your favorite Dealer and see what they will do for you.

I had a similar problem with my 2005 Ion. When slowing to a stop or sitting at idle the lights would dim. It never happened at speed though. It turned out that my throttle body was dirty and because the engine wasn't breathing well it wasn't spinning at a high enough RPM to keep the alternator producing the correct voltage. I cleaned the throttle body and the problem was solved as well as the rough idle problem my car had.

Running sluggish.All of a sudden jerks sometimes as if when someone is pulling you. Kind of like it is running out of gas but it is not.

2002 Saturn Vue V6 Loss of Power

Yup. The throttle body connectors have a history of failing on these cars. Replace the throttle body and the wire connectors that go to it, and you're back in business. Not terribly difficult and you can get the parts from any dealer. Saturn actually has a bulletin out on this problem but they won't cover it unless you're under warranty - no recall for this.

Electronic Throttle control light came on and car died

We ended up taking the vehicle to a trusted auto repair shop. The codes came up indicating a failed throttle body, most likely in the electronics. After a few more pinpoint tests, the recommendation was to replace the throttle body. The cost for this repair was just under $500. Since there is no aftermarket on this part, Genuine Ford parts were used.
