what throttle body are you using??

is it from your old engine or the new one??

you may have to do a throttle body reset, I know there is a procedure to reset the throttle body. I just cant remember how to do it..


Hey troy.

Iv got two Throttle bodies at home. and the new one that came with the engine. All 3 still had the same problem. (one of them are from my old engine) i cleared the codes with the diagnostic computer and they came back.

Have you disconnected the battery for 5 mins?
Have you played with the butterfly in the throttle body? Eg open and close by hand? Don't ever do that.
Have you checked for vacuum leaks?
How good of a mechanic is your mate?

You may have a stuffed throttle position sensor

Hey the problem defiantly isn't from the TB iv changed it 3 times.
Nah i havnt checked for leaks yet. as we don't think a leak could stop me from accelerating at all.
And he is a really good mechanic been running his shop on his own for years. never had a problem

Thanks again. for every ones help. were going to play around and try and figure it out tonight :)

I just wanna say a big thanks to everyone for helping :) you have all been great.

I ended up towing the car to his workshop, It ended up being a sensor in the plenum Chamber that had an issue, Also the TB sensor had an issue, im not too sure how he fixed it but he did,

Anyways the car is now up and running well ,

Once again Thank you for helping :)
