I have a jetta 2001. 2.0 engine, It will not accelerate or rev up what so whatever. it starts up great goes into gear and everything. We have replaced the 02 sensor and the throttle body. Does anyone know what could be wrong?
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.
Okay thank you so much!
