I have had my 05 2.5i for a little over a month and last night it got a little weird and this morning it was downright strange.
I start the car and start driving and when I shift the RPMs do not drop. As I come to a stop the RPMs stay in the same place, not knowing a ton about the mechanics of this car (figured throttle cable stuck
) but the car tached out at 6000RPM. The only way they would go back down is with a hard downshift or if I came to a complete stop and was sitting (not touching any pedals at all).
I think its either a throttle position sensor or after a little research it could be an accelerator sensor...either way I need to fix it soon because I fee like a dumbasss sitting in traffic fully revved, not to mention every shift is essentially a soft drag launch.
Any help is appreciated.
