Throttle Positioning Sensor that is. Quite possibly especially if they didnt switch that out when you changed motors.

Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy. The problem is, I just forgot this one time. And I've already taken care of it so it's not even a problem anymore.

that happened to me once cause the gas pedal was stuck under the floor mat
