What is causing the throttle body to malfunction?
Hi, I bought my 2002 Saturn Vue V6 in June of this year, since then, I had to change the throttle body 2 time and the same issue is arising again. This morning I was driving to work and the check engine light came on and the car was having a tough time accelerating. When I got to work, I wanted to test it out to see what would happen, so I sped up and it accelerated fine, was able to get up hills and did not stall when stopped. I have not yet checked the codes but this is not something that should be happening since the throttle body was changed 3 weeks ago.
Your issue probably isn't the throttle body. Stop at your local auto parts to have them scan the car for the codes, then post the 4 digit codes back here and we can help further.
The codes that came up are P1779, P0700, and P0121. The ones that came up a few weeks ago was P1779, P0221, P0700, P2101, and P2176.
Just had the throttle body replaced on my Saturn Vue. When I went to pick the car up from the garage i experienced the same surging and chock I did when I dropped the car off. And both the engine and low engine pressure lights were on. The mechanic told be that there was a second part to the throttle body that may need to be replaced as well. Any advice???
i have a 2007 mazda 5 that has the same problem ive changed the throttle body(ecm) the gaz pedal and the relay and im still having proplems the car wont rev up past 2000rpm and the check engine light is on with code p2101 that relate to the throttle dody the mazda currently has 380000km on it
