So about a week ago i was driving and the car loss power and the throttle felt as though it was much harder to depress, then i got a cel of p1251. tb related. assuming that i had a bad TB i replaced it with a new unit $$ and changed it all out only to have the same problem. So my question to you is, is there any other parts or place i should be looking to remedy this problem. it was not in limp home mode and i did disconnect the battery. This one has me stumped. I also regaped the plugs and check for any other issues attached to the TB ie: hoses wiring, nothing seems to be out of place. any help would be appreciated.:confused:

More help;

Engine Code P1260, P1251
Codes P1260 and P1251 "Manufactuer Control Malfunction, Fuel Air Flow Metering" reference the throttle body. Clearing the codes and then resetting the throttle body, in that order, may correct these issues with the throttle body. See other FAQ section for step-by-step on how to reset the throttle body properly.

In a limp home mode situation and before replacing any parts my personal experience has showed me to make a thorough inspection of all your wire harness connectors. This has saved me hundreds if not thousands in uneeded parts. As the cars age the connectors lose their abbility to seal like they did when they were new. One drop of water can throw out a few codes, and even put the car in limp home mode.
