Throttle position sensor. What's the fix on that, clean, adjust, replace, anyone got a pic of it.

It is a replace deal. You can shoot some WD-40 in it to revive it temporaily.

Yep you'll be fine. It will hesitate and act goofy like it is already. But it won't hurt your engine a bit.

It was after the moron indecent that I noticed the SES, then I started hearing a loud squeal. I don't have squeal tads on my front pads so that means a hub bearing is going to seize up on me any minute now tossing me sideways into on coming traffic. Turns out the squealing was coming from the Ford next to me.

WTH,

I never cleared the code, the SES was still on this morning. Noticed on my way home tonight the SES wasn't on :confused: Van seems to run fine so guess I'll clear the code and wait to see if it pops up again.
