Acceleration problem

Asked by May 30, 2018 at 05:55 PM about the 2003 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 LS Hatchback 5d auto

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi had an acceleration problem, meaning nothing when
pressed pedal. So I changed the pedal still the same,
thought ok ECU problem brought an ECU off eBay fitted
still the same. Anybody any suggestions or advise please?

1 Answer

is the accelerator connected directly to the engine (through a throttle cable) or does it work electrically (sending a signal to the ecu then telling the throttle body how much to accelerate the engine). If it is connected through the throttle cable then try and find where it goes and see if there are any crimps in the cable or if has snapped altogether. And if it runs through the ecu then try replacing the throttle body in the engine as you may have a faulty servo
