Spent yesterday performing the tasks in the link you sent me. During those tasks I noticed that a cable going from transmission to throttle body linkage was not connected, grommet had broken and cable was just floating around. I don t know what this cable does, can't find it in the Haynes manual. I did replace that grommet during re-assembly. I did not notice any excessive crud or blockages during the cleaning task, actually I was surprised to see how clean in was for 70k miles.
Next I checked throttle position sensor, good to go. Voltage increases and returns smoothly.
Checked idle air control, good to go. Correct ohms.
Performed fuel pressure test with kit rented from auto zone, passed.
Check coolant temp sensor / RR if required.
Check EGR sensor / RR if required.
Check pin 22 (I don t know where this is at) for power from PCM.
Will crank and try to start in Park, will not idle.
Will start and idle in neutral. Engine will rev without hesitation when the accelerator is pressed. --- New development --- car wants to move fwd in neutral, not much, but it will roll fwd without application of brake.
Will idle when shifted to Drive. Release brake and car will begin to move fwd, however when applying throttle, the engine does not respond, even if floored. This is very confusing to me as it will rev immediately, no hesitation, when transmission is in Neutral.
Any new ideas? Again, thank you for your time.
