02 ford e150 stalls and hesitates when given gas!
So this has been a problem for a while getting worse as days go on. so the van starts
fine, has no error codes, no theft light on or blinking. When you give it more than 1/8 of
the pedal the van hesitates and jerks and backfires. if you give less than 1/8 of the
pedal it will accelerate with no hesitation. and just today when i got in it and put it in
reverse it died right away. i held the gas and i got it to go. but then it acted like it
usually does and was fine for the rest of my drive, except for the hesitation. i was
thinking it may be a fuel pump or filter but not sure. please help!!!!!!

throttle position sensor?
yes...a mechanical device which tells the computer where your foot is...some are accelerator position sensors...but Toyota got a bad rap as this device led to many out of control accidents...so the TPS is used...some cars have both...is mounted right on the throttle body and gets the signal from a transducer or a cable...hafta look it up...if it were a transducer the search would have shown that~....but think EVERY TIME you use the car that little tiny bearing will see some wear and crumbles will block the opticals makin' it unreliable...(this being the case here)~
replaced the throttle pos sensor and nothing changed
the intake air sensor has a small wire that changes the value under various temperatures....and like a lightblub may burn out leaving the circuit open~ I'd at least pluck that from the intake plenum and visually check the wire is still there...they are kinda cheap too~^^^^^
the link didnt work and i will check the wire to see if it still there on the intake air sensor
same problem im having except no codes ^^
hard to tell from this photo, but plugs into the side of the intake plenum~
Gas tank debris. drop and clean out tank, change fuel pump screen and sock. Replace in line fuel filter on driver side chasis rail !!!!!!!!
