It sounds more like a vacuum leak. That could explain why the idle quiets down when you press the accelerator. Other reasons for a p1083 include a MAF sensor, a bad fuel injector, or another fuel system problem that may cause low fuel pressure.
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 have a 1995 Ford Taurus GL Station Wagon. The temperature used to run about the middle of normal. Recently it rose to the L in normal and I had flushed the system, changed both temperature sensors and the control module over the center of the radiator, the radiator fan and the circuit breaker to the fan. I replaced the radiator about 3 months earlier. The only other thing I never replaced is the water pump?
I have a carbureted engine that idles roughly, and stalls at stops. The car gets worse as it comes to operating temperature. No vacuum leaks. Ignition system is all good. I cleaned the carb and it appears pretty clean to me. Any other ideas where to look? Undriveable currently as it is. My 1989 car has no scan tool connector.
