September 15, 2020 P0505 Code: Idle Control SystemWhen the vehicle is idling, the throttle plate closes, limiting the air supply to the engine. However, the engine still needs air to keep running.
September 09, 2020 P0123 Code: Throttle / Pedal Position Sensor “A” Circuit HighThe throttle position (TP) sensor “A” is a potentiometer that is mounted on the throttle body and shaft that determines the throttle valve position. It monitors the throttle blade angle and relays this information to the throttle actuator module or powertrain control module (PCM).
July 22, 2020 P0306 Code: Cylinder 6 Misfire DetectedA cylinder can suffer a misfire for various reasons. The common causes for a code P0306 include:
Worn-out ignition system parts (i.e., spark plugs, ignition wires, coils, or distributor cap)Vacuum leaksInsufficient fuel pressureProblem with the fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel injectors, or fuel filterProblems with the exhaust gas circulation (EGR) August 26, 2020 P0068 Code: MAP/MAF – Throttle Position CorrelationThe PCM regularly tests all three sensors by comparing the TPS readings with the ones from the MAF and MAP sensors. The reading from each sensor should correspond to the equivalent data on the other sensors—otherwise, the PCM may log a P0068 code.
