Hello can I get some advice like anything at all I paid for it and I'm getting nothing
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 4 months ago.

Are there any trouble codes stored?

So it will start, you can apply full throttle and it only idles, correct?

So far the symptoms are pointing to a faulty electronic throttle body or a faulty accelerator pedal position sensor.

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears your not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris
