Hi. I have a 2008 Ford Focus, 1.4L. The EML and red cog on dash indicate throttle positioning sensor. I have changed the throttle body and the entire accelerator pedal (sensor included) and the issue is still there. The car will drive perfectly normal until the red cog light appears on the dashboard. There is then a loss of power and there is a delay between pushing the accelerator and the car accelerating. What could be the problem? Please help!
I just replaced my 1970 mustang's 302 valve covers, intake manifold and upgraded from 2 barrel to 4 barrel carburetor. In doing so, I had to lift the distributor up a bit in order to install the manifold. Would that throw the timing off? The engine cranks and puffs and seems to want to start but simply won't. Any thoughts?
My 1999 3.3l Dodge Caravan starts up and runs smooth. But only after the engine is at operating temp is shut off for a while then restarted, it takes a little longer to start and the engine on acceleration wants to choke and cough for a few seconds. Then it's back to normal. What is the likely culprit here?
