Was this the issue before you replaced the throttle body on the engine. Is the throttle body cable driven from the accelerator pedal or is it electronic???

It is electonic i believe! My uncle ran the code scanner and it said throttle body so we replaced that and still nothing. I had no problems before.

The other part of acceleration on electronic throttle body cars is of course the accelerator pedal assembly. It contains sensors that tell the ECM/PCM where to set the throttle. If one of the codes said anything about an APP sensor then it is the accelerator pedal assembly you need.
