Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question
need to clean the throttle body
and get the pcm reprogramed
how do i do those
go to a parts store and buy carb cleaner remove the intake snorkel and get a tooth brush, Spray the carb cleaner on the throttle body use the toothbrush to clean the sludge out of the throttle body
after doing that take it to the dealer to get the pcm reprogramed
Are you under 36k miles
car won't run
start with cleaning the throttle body
does it crank and start
how did it get sludge yes it cranks and starts won't idle above 1000 rpm
just happens over time and when you replace the battery the computer forgets the adjusted settings it was at to make it run. The computer componsates for the sludge build up when you replace the battery it erasing the computer memory.
so i have to get a tow because the battery died doesn;t right to me'
clean the throttle body yourself and it will run better
