No, literally, diesel engines do not have a throttle plate. Power is modulated by the amount of fuel injected into the cylinder. There is no throttle plate controlling the flow of air.

Oh, and here's my car
It's a throttle pedal, so it's a throttle, just because it's not restricting or de-restricting airflow doesn't make a difference, and most petrol cars are fuel injected, so they do exactly what a diesel does only modulate air intake also.


If your logic is sound, then it means it's not a Gas pedal, it's also a Diesel pedal too
Ah, but you said he'd have to clean the throttle body, diesels don't have one They do have an accelerator pedal, but no throttle.

Also, while most gasoline engines are fuel injected, only a small number of them are direct injection like a diesel engine.

I call it a throttle on both diesel and petrol engines, whilst maybe not exactly correct, it's good enough for most people.

this is my pride and joy, a 1996 Ford Escort RS2000 mk6. 150bhp FWD. Was modified with the angel eyes and 17" alloys but I've now gone back to standard as 15s are more fun to drive with, and the lights were faulty. Also got a Superflow cat back exhaust which keeps splitting at the middle box, hoping to change it at some point.

Hoping to get her back on the road within the next few months and sell my other car, a 1999 mondeo TD 1.8. Which I'm not showing because it's a shit heap lol
4 hours of washing and waxing yesterday afternoon, followed by rain overnight New headlight bulbs mean I can see where I'm going at night though

A few pics of the Mini taken in daylight earlier today:

Looks lovely

A good friend of mine owned a mini, too.
This car was so sick as he dropped it and got a new enigine in it.

If im right it had a bit more then 160 PS at the end which is sick with this little car.

But he had to sell it because he got problems with his back lol.

WOW! looks really cool One of the best looking mini´s what ive seen.
Thanks for the comments lads

Bastian.. the 1293cc in this pulls quite well and so far pushed up to 110mph (registered on a satnav) although I _really_ wouldn't want to crash it at that speed!

I may have it bored out to a 1380cc next year and drop a pair of weber 40s on it. It's interesting to see the look on people's faces driving much more modern cars when you go bouncing past them in the outside lane

Thats what im talking bout
Was really fun to drive this little monster as there was absolutely no car that could handle it
You had to be really careful because that little thing started bouncing like hell on bad streets.

First senseful post you've ever made.
Update..


Awesome looking car flippy, just out of interest, do you know how to change the trip meter to read the rev counter, or the speedo? (Amongst other things)

I only found this out at the weekend on my mates 2002 focus, but it's worked on any other reasonably new car i've tried it on, just wondering if this isn't really well known or i'm just so far behind the times.
Do tell. Curious whether it would work on my Honda.
From what I can see it's only a ford thing but it's worth a try, i'm gunna try it on my corsa too when I run out of fuel (It resets the trip mileage)

I just googled it and found this site, explains it in much more detail...

Edit, shit, sorry Nathan, I just realised what I said in my last post, I meant to say any other reasonably new ford...
