No throttle response. the car starts and idles but no gas pedal. I replaced the gas pedal and throttle body with no change.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Before this started I didn't notice any change in mileage

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Dodge?

2008 avenger 4 cyl engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Avenger yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replaced the gas pedal and throttle body and a new battery

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
