03 Problems - Laundry List - Need Help
Started with replacing the tensioner pulley for the power steering and ac belt. Drove the car home after sucessfull completion and noticed that it seemed to have a load on it -- (forgive me if I expalin this incorrectly). Basically, it seemed that I was depressing the gas while trying to keep the car stopped. When I put it in park, the RPM went to 2500. It now constantly wants to be between 2250-3000 RPM in park/neutral, and I always have to keep the brake depressed harder than it should at stop lights.
Second issue that might be related -- at 60+ MPH, when I let off the accelerator, the car... lurtches. Imagine a manual transmission car, and popping the clutch and quickly depressing the gas peddle numberous times to make the passanger lurtch forward then be thrown back into the seat.
I have tried looking for vacuum leaks using carb cleaner. Nothing really happened. Can the high RPM in park not allow for a change using the cleaner? I have changed the Idle Control Sensor and the Throttle Control Sensor. No change.
I'm at a loss - is it time to tuck tail and take it to the dealer and have them hook it up? Is my computer to blame? Will the computer even register the new parts without me doing anything? (I did disconnect the battery overnight to hopefully reset things -- again, nothing different)
Any help would be greatly appreciated! (Sorry for any mispellings!)
