Thumbs down FILLER UP

Hello!

I have a 2006 pt cruiser. Each time I fill the tank up with gas the engine ligt comes on at about half a tank. I put gas treatment in and the engine ligt did not come on at all. A couple of months later I fill the car with gas and the engine ligt came on and my pt cruiser will accelerate slow up to 60mph and then jerk off fast. Sometimes just idleing at the light it my car would cut off. But, I cranked it back up. But, if I put the gas treatment in the car, it would drive smoothly with no problem and no engine light on. I took it PepBoys and had free codes read. They were codes P0122 Throttle Pedal Position Sensor / Switch A Circuit low and P2074 Manufacture Specific Code. Could someone please tell me what this means and what kind of repair I should be asking for at the mechanics? Thank you.

Jerry, didn't realize he did or I would have gotten rid of the other one. Guess he figured posting in the regional forum would get him somebody close by for a response.

No problem Cary, I knew you'd get to it. I just mentioned it for any new members reading both posts.

Sorry I missed the picnic. Had to work.

No problem Jerry. Been busy with other posts and didn't get to the regional ones to see his other post.

I'll just post this picture again, as you said the TPS could be the basic problem.



P.S. Only about a dozen showed up at the TBPTCC picnic but we had a fun time.
