CAR: 1999 AUDI AVANT WAGON 1. THE CAR WAS LEFT OUTSIDE DURING THE WINTER OF 2008/9 AND UNUSED FOR SEVERAL MONTHS. IN SPRINT OF 2009, THE CAR WAS JUMP STARTED AND THIS IS WHEN THE PROBLEMS STARTED OCCURRING. 2. REGARDLESS OF COLD WEATHER, THE CAR WILL ACCELERATE. MORE SPECIFICALLY, WHEN THE GAS PEDAL IS RELEASED, THE CAR WILL NOT DECELERATE. THIS MEANS THE CAR WILL PROPEL ITSELF FORWARD. WITHOUT DEPRESSING THE GAS PEDAL, THE CAR WILL SOMETIMES ACHIEVE A SPEED OF 40-45 MPH. BY PUSHING THE PEDAL DOWN AND RELEASING IT QUICKLY (PUMPING THE PEDAL), THE THROTTLE WILL RELEASE AND THE CAR WILL COME BACK DOWN TO IDLE SPEED. THIS OCCURS NOT EVERY TIME BUT APPROXIMATE 1 OUT OF 10 TIMES THAT THE CAR IS DRIVEN. 3. THE TUBE THAT LEADS TO THE THROTTLE, THE ACCELERATOR CABLE, AND THE THROTTLE BODY HAVE ALL BEEN REPLACED. THERE IS A RECALL ON THE THROTTLE BODY ON THIS CAR RELATED TO THIS SPECIFIC ISSUE BUT THE RECALL IS ONLY BASED ON VERY COLD AMBIENT WEATHER. I AM EXPERIENCING THIS ISSUE DURING WARM WEATHER ALSO. THE MECHANIC NOW THINKS THIS IS DUE THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULE (ECM).
