There is a recall on 2007 Dodge Caliber. You should contact your Dodge dealer, they will check to see if your car has or needs to be repaired under the recall.

However, the bottom line is, you need to have the throttle body replaced, not cleaned.

It looks like your engine needs an overhaul. You can confirm by doing a compression test.

Why is my volvo losing power when accelerating


There are hundreds of reasons a car can lose power but the first step should always be to remove the throttle body and give it a thorough cleaning with a quality throttle body cleaner (i.e. CRC).

Throttle bodies should be regularly cleaned, but seldom are and the deposits can prevent the cars' MAF sensors from getting an accurate read of how much air the motor is getting. It can make an 8 cylinder motor feel like a V6 or worse in more severe cases.

You can probably perform this service without a mechanic. I'd recommend searching on Volvo forums for specific how to's.

Where is the throttle body located?


old post , and great question

the TB is a thing that contains the AIR throttle, the body holds

that TV throttle valve (or some call it a TP throttle plate)

this car has 6 engines, and varies by country. what country>?

what engine? (USA cars have a hood EPA tag, it states the engine)



sure cleaning it can help and for sure with throttle by wire.

the body gets full of EGR/PCV crap. (called GUNK) and if not

removed on high mileage cars, it jams the silly throttle by wire

motor. (and related\'s)

why not scan the PCM and SEE ALL DTC errors.

that be first. !!!



loose power has many causes, up to 50.

why not scan it first, (the CEL lamp to me is useless , unless stuck on)

scan it first.

this engine has many limphome modes (suzuki failsafe)

and will run slow. in limp mode.

scan it.

the TBW , throttle by wire has it\'s own limp mode.

the transmission too, and others.



The TBW has up to 4 TPS sensors. 2 on the foot and 2 in the TB

if ANY of the 4 , do not AGREE, you go to LIMP HOME MODE>

or end up like a Toyota and huge class action lawsuits.



loss of power, not transmission caused, (slips or skips gears)

is engine power loss.

cause by (top ones of 50)

1: never getting a tuneup. and for sure the 60k mile.

2: misfire, caused by 3 major things. ask.

3: flooding.

4: bad spark see #1

5: clogged air filters see #1

6: clogged fuel filter.

7: weak fuel pump.

8: and the big one is loss o f engine compression for huge list of causes.

9: not scanning the PCM and believing what it told you. !!!

2006 Chev Trailblazer. Seems to be running fine then loses power, the airbag light comes on, then it picks back up and seems to run fine again.


1st things 1st, clean that throttle body. Clean with throttle body cleaner with the battery disconnected. Must be shiny like new. When finished drive with all the accesories OFF for about 5-7 miles, this way your computer will relearn the newly cleaned throttle body correctly.

As far as the airbag light, could be many things. You didn't mention this....does the airbag light go off when the power is restored? The airbag is nothing to mess with, if it goes on again, you can take it to a shop that can communicate with the airbag control module. Will narrow down exactly where the fault is.

Check the IAC valve (idle air control) might be dirty and sticking. Remove air intake hose to engine, spray throttle body cleaner in upper right opening in throttle body to clean, also spray all areas of throttle body while opening and closing butterfly, then start truck and spray IAC valve and openings while running. If that does not work replace the IAC valve with new one.

I have change airfilter,pvc, both coils upgrade wires & plugs. i only can get around 250 miles per tank. it that good or bad? what can i do to get better miles per tank.


First off,do not install a cheap air filter,it will restrict air flow,use a napa gold,or equal ,You can change the oil,and use a synthetic oil blend,like castrol,it reduces friction.Add a good fuel cleaner,such as lucas fuel treatment.Also have a shop set the timing on the engine,over time,the timing will change,do to wear.Clean the air intake ,or throttle body,remove all the black carbon with a throttle body spray cleaner,or carburetor cleaner.

2006 expedition hesitating during low speed excelleration


Try cleaning the throttle body with throttle body cleaner. Remove intake hose at throttle end. Spray cleaner on butterfly and open throttle by hand, spray inside throttle body and let the build up run back out. Wipe clean with clean dry cloth, and repeat. It will be hard to start after putting back on, but it will start with 5-6 engine turns. It's the cleaner in the throttle. The injectors ca be cleaned with them in, they will run clean the fuel system. I usually buy Lucas injector cleaner and add 109 octane booster from wal-mart or your local parts store. Lucas is wonderful and the booster will clean your system. A lot cheaper than a shop cleaning it.

Recommended maintenence for 1999 cadillac such as throtle body, power steering, transmission, coolant, etc.


there is no maint required for the throttle body per say, just clean it if you develope a problem like stalling at idle, same goes for power steering, but a flush of the fluid every 30,000 miles is helpfull to extend life of pump and steering rack, the transmission needs to be given a fluid and filter change at least every 60,000 miles, the filters replaced for fuel and air every 30,000 miles and the spark plugs replaced at 100,000 miles.
