    Hi all
    Im new on here so please be gentle. I have searched but not found much.

    It could be one problem or it could be two with one making the other worst.

    My accelerator pedal wobbles around loose and it seems you have to push it down hard to get it moving.

    The other possible issue is whilst on the motorway I hit the accelerator hard and clicked the silver floor switch (never had an auto so dont know what that is) but there was no kick down.

    I know I might have a few things to sort on the car as I bought it as a repo.

    The pedals are crap, they always break! A new one is cheap enough.

    Get it on a Star for the kick down issue. It is quite likely to be a faulty air mass sensor.
