#1 of 3 '05 T&C Throttle sticking, car lurches between 30-40 mph, has stalled once
Mar 24, 2009 (7:48 am)
My '05 T&C has a little over 73000 miles and started to give problems. I have replaced the sway arm bushigs thanks to this site, and fixed one problem myself. Shortly after that the battery light started flashing on and off, took it to the parts house, there meter said bad battery, but the alternator was working fine. I replaced the battery there, and went on my way. Last week it started to lurch, or shutter going down the road at around 30-40 mph. I used fuel injector cleaner to start with. Then on the way to work it just died at the stop light, it started up right away though. the check engine light is not on, or any others. The accelerator pedal is sticking pretty bad also when you release it to coast. All this seems to be worse when you first run the car, after it warms up it is not as bad. Any insight to this would be helpfull.

I would definitely try cleaning the throttle body. Had many issues at my shop with sticking thrttles, poor driveability issues just simply from the throttle body "gumming" up. You can buy the cleaner at most parts stores. Use with an old toothbrush or something with soft bristles. I would not recommend using Carb cleaner, or any other harsh chemicals. Hope this helps out.
