Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this video in response to it. There are many different configurations of throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts store.

General Motors PASSLOCK® anti-deterrent features in a 99 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4L
So, once again GM has done it. They invented something that failed and yet again they don't have a solution. This feature should not be added to any car, even if someone steals the car, the odds of this system to stop working are zero to none. Once WE THE OWNERS need to replace an ignition cylinder or an ECM, then the system fails for us. And the Dealership has NO CLUE how to fix it other than the helpful tip to crack the ECM open and replace the "memory chip". We all know that the memory chip is integrated and soldered on these years models. There is a reason why I love FORD!

Changing Idle Air Control and Throttle Position Sensor
Changing my IAC and TPS, hopefully she will run much better. The IAC (Idle Air Control) motor/valve, allows air into the manifold while the truck is idling, if it's stuck shut, then the truck will die at idle, which is what it was doing. I also threw on a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) because I was there and the one on it was original. Sometimes it's good to replace parts when they have a ton of miles on them just to eliminate issues later.
How to replace an O2 Sensor and save money.
I show you how to replace your O2 Sensor. This is being performed on a 1997 Chevy Tahoe. Automotive oxygen sensors, colloquially known as O2 sensors, make modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible. They determine if the air fuel ratio exiting a gas-combustion engine is rich (with unburnt fuel vapor) or lean (with excess oxygen).

Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor
Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor
Describes the operation of the APP or accelerator position sensor. The APP sensor is found in almost every vehicle today. This is a component of the Drive-By-Wire system, which does away with the throttle cable. In a DBW system, the ECM receives an input from the APP sensor and then commands the appropriate throttle opening using a throttle actuator motor. See how this device works with this video. Then, go further and view our other video on how to test the APP sensor.
