car lurchs

Asked by Oct 08, 2013 at 09:12 AM about the 2007 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when accelerating from a dead stop my '07 4.6 mustang GT will not respond when you try to make the car move forward slowly ( like in heavy traffic) instead it will lurch forward and lift the front end, you can't make it just crawl forward, if you step down on the accelerator and go it will work fine.

Probably the TPS (throttle position sensor) is the check engine light on?
