The engine check light would come on. then i could restart the car a few times and id be fine for a few minutes. then go back to the same problem. now my car isn't stuck and won't accerlate at all now. I hear a clicking noise, when i press the pedal it goes away and my car begins to shake. my rpms don't go up Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink? Stay on Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car? 2009 kia borrego Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Borrego yourself? What have you tried so far?

Usually its a failed Throttle body has the throttle body been replaced yet?

It has notI thought maybe the throttle position sensor possibly could be too or no?
Automotive Expert
Very possible Usually easier Just to get a complete throttle body if available

Does the throttle body include the throttle position sensor usually?
Automotive Expert
Generally Yes

I have another question about the throttle body. Is this something I can replace or is there a certain tool or timing that a mechanic would only know how to install?
