My 04 ford explorer 4.0L acceleration petal it's not working . Can it be a sensor?

open the hood you should see the throttle cables on the side of the throttle body twist that monster the cables are wrapped around thats your throttle if the motor doesnt rev up its a problem in the throttle body if it does then your throttle cable may be snapped somewhere

I have a mitsubishi galant 1998 model.the problem is the rpm is to high even in the neutral the rpm goes up to 2000 rpm.

Do you have a "Check Engine" light? If not, check that the accelerator cable is functioning properly. When the accelerator is in the normal position the throttle plate should be completely closed. If necessary you should remove the air duct to inspect the interior of the throttle body. The cable should be have no slack but should allow the throttle plate to close all the way.

If the throttle is working properly then I would suggest looking at the idle air control (IAC) valve which controls the idle speed when the car is in park, in neutral or in gear and the accelerator is not depressed. Try disconnecting the IAC and note how the idle is affected. This will cause a Check Engine light to turn on. To clear it, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes then start the car. Let me know what you find out.

Lack of power

If your problems started from the day that you had the new throttle body installed, yes this may be your problem. I'll give you some checks that you may perform to check if it was installed properly.

1.Make sure that all the hoses were replaced and all hose clamps were tightened up properly, if it leaks air, your air flow sensor wont be able to read the correct air flow into the egine which leads to poor performance.

2. If it is second hand throttle body that was installed, move your throttle shaft where the accelerator cable is attached to, up and down. If there is a lot of movement you will have to replace it or get it re-bushed.

3.On the side of the throttle body is a black unit attached, this is your throttle position sensor. With the egine not running, move the throttle on the throttle body, you should hear a click sound (a micro switch inside this unit opens a circuit), if you do not hear a click sound it has been set up incorrectly. Loosen up the two bolts holding this unit to the throttle body and turn this unit in the opposite direction of the throttle to rev up the engine if it was running, then turn it in the same direction as if you would throttle the engine but do it slowly untill you can hear a click sound. As soon as it clicks hold it and tighten the lock bolts. Now test it and make sure as soon as you would accelerate it clicks, job done for this one.

Generally look for vacuum hoses that might not be connected or secured properly and or electrical connections that might not be in place.

2003dodge ram hemi 1500, no power, torque, or throttle response

AS far as IAC goes, you would probably experience stalling at lights, on turns , anytime engine under load like AC on at stop. TP sensor? Maybe, but is easy to check with an ohm meter. I'm sure you have checked all brakes for possibly holding on slightly. You have checked throttle pedal & linkage to make sure pedal down all the way, is opening throttle all the way? Does it feel at all like it's holding back, or just starving? Any good tranny shop that could check torque converter for proper operation in your area? One other idea would be to join free, at ( and post there, as that would be a spot where all or a lot of guys with same vehicle may be able to shed some light on it for you.

not a big problem. It may be tie rod wearing. If you hear a click when turning it would be the ball joints. If it does not make clicking sound, then most likely tie rod ends or improper alignment

Stops while driving

this is usually due to a dirty throttle body. just beware if you do try to clean it you will need to preform the idle relearn procedure. this does work, ive done it personally.

A. Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning Procedure.
1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
3. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
4. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds (how would you know if you get it right?)

B. Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning
1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch is “ON”.
3. Turn ignition switch is “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound (i never get this right because i never heard anything)

C. Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)
It's best to time with a watch/clock.

1. Perform “Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning”.
2. Perform “Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning”.
3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.
5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.
6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)
7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops
blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11 Wait 20 seconds
12Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications. (this is fine because SES light lets you know if you did it right the way it blinks)
