Car runs normally but stalls when accelerator is pressed hard and when accelerator is released car starts immediately on its own. This has happened three times recently. The OD1 codes are:
Code 25 = Air Fuel Ratio Fault. Does this indicate an Oxygen Sensor (about $35)?
Code 41 = Throttle Position Sensor. I'm told that this may lead to the Engine Control Module.
New oem is $800
Rebuild current one (about $200+)
Code 42 = Vehicle Speed Sensor Fault (About $70)
I'm retired, spending is an issue, so here's my question. I've driven this car over 20 years and hate to give up on it but I can't afford to have a mechanic try to figure it out at $100 per hour. What do you think might be wrong? Is it one of the mentioned problems or could it be a problem as simple as a clogged fuel filter or defective fuel pump? How do I zero in on this?
have the same problem?
