I am assuming that this vehicle has an electronic throttle control rather than an actual throttle cable.

You will need to get access to a scanner and check the code to determine whether you have a defective throttle position indicator at the pedal itself, wiring problems between the pedal and the PCM and the actuator to the throttle itself. You will also need access to a manual, and a good digital volt ohm meter.

If the vehicle has a mechanical braided cable on the side of the throttle, then you need to check for a broken throttle cable and replace if necessary.

SOURCE: Car won't start until i give it gas.

You have to change the Fuel filter on your car. Its probably do for one anyways so change that fuel filter and that should solve your problems.

SOURCE: When I try to accelerate my car has no power!

There could be a couple of reasons. Yes a tune up would be nice. But my not fix the problem. If you are not losing acceleration on straight away but on hill, then it could be the torqe converter. Also have your MASS airflow sensor checked and air filter.

Also check your fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Get a fuel gauge and look for a port on the fuel rail for a port that looks like the valve on the tire. Screw it in and crank the car. You will have to call the part store to find out what pressure it is supposed to be. If there is low or eratic pressure the its the filter or pump

SOURCE: my car runs great exept when i press the gas pedal

Probably the fuel filter partly plugged, but could also be plug wires, or cam sensor.

2001 Buick Lesabre starts normal everyday. Car sits three days or more will not start unless you put the accelerator pedal down at least twice


put the accelerator pedal down at least twice ? While cranking the engine ? key on ? what ? Your vehicle has electronic fuel injection ,not a carburator . Pushing the gas pedal doesn't do anything The only thing if pushing the gas pedal to the foor an holding it there will put it into clear flood mode , shutting off the fuel injectors .

Why wont my car accelerate?


If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

Car will not accelerate when gas pushed


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Air conditioner stops when i accelerate rapidly


The air cond compressor is supposed to stop, but only if the gas pedal is pushed to the floor.
If it is cutting off and the pedal is not all the way down, you could have a problem with the throttle position sensor.
Cutting off during hard acceleration gives you a few more horsepower.

04 Galant will start but not stay on. I have to hold down the gas. Mechanic said the accelerator was deprogrammed and I have to take it to a dealership. True?


its sounds like your IAC (idle air control) motor isn't working correctly. It controls the amount of air that enters the engine when the throttle body is closed. If it is not working, the engine will start but dies from insufficiant air flow. Your car doesn't die with the gas pedal pressed because pressing the pedal opens the throttle body allowing air to enter the engine.

Two symptoms here Keith, and I just had this, same car year and model. The pedal could either be a bit loose, check the cable and throtle. Have someone check, when the cars in neutral,they manually rev it, and watch the RPM's. They should go 3-4 as normal. If this is the case, and its not the cable or pedal, REPLACE spark plug cables and wires. Odd, but that was the fix to mine. Hope it helps.
