Gonna give this a try here shortly. 2005 5.4 3v with 113k miles on it. Owned for 3 years. Had 37k on it when I bought it, and a K&N filter (been swapped out to high flow dry one for a year now).

Having the following codes:

P0120 - Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor A Circuit Range/Performance

P0174 - System too lean (Bank 2)

P2104 - Throttle Actuation Control System Forced Idle

P2112 - Throttle Actuation Control System Stuck Closed

We'll see if this fixes the issues, or if I have more to deal with.

Anyone with other thoughts on if this is it, feel free to chime in while I get this done.

Thanks for the great post!!

Cleaned both the throttle body (the lower and butterfly were nasty as hell), and the MAF.

Did the restart according to the directions, then went on the drive. Much better throttle response.

30 miles to work this morning, and no hesitations, cleaner idle, and much better performance.

Driving 250 miles this afternoon, and will post mpg improvements, if any.

Thanks again for this post!

glad to hear it worked out. One thing I wish I had done to my 98 when i had it was clean the tb out by removing it and even the intake manifold. 14 years of driving im sure built up some lovely goo.

Default Same Problem with Throttle Body

Followed this thread to fix my little throttle body problem on my 2005 F150 4.6 V8 Flair side. Followed step by step, finished in under 20 mins, including road test, works just like knew, well done.

Cheers

Anthony
