TPS Questions for my RX

As far as adjustment, the FSM for it should have a spec in it to tell you what the voltage should be at idle. If its not right, loosen the TPS and basically 'time' is with your car. You'll need to figure out which is the signal wire and which one is ground and then use a DVOM while the car is running and the TPS is still plugged in to find the voltage of the signal.

what problem are you trying to chase down?

I thought maybe the TPS could be out of whack, was going to adjust it a tad and try to troubleshoot the problem.

I have a really good graphing meter that would test it real easy. if you want to get this old DP from me some day I would be happy to test it for you.

PM me with your addy so I can see how far of a drive it is.
I put my cone filter on today, and i can notice an increase in acceleration, it seems to climb above 4k alot easier. I inspected the connection for the TPS, and everything looked good. I think i'll try to clean it, or order a new one.

I also removed the hose that leads to my PCV, in order to access the TPS wiring easier, and there is alot of buildup.
Is there anything I can use to clean the crap out of the line? Hose I can replace, but I'd like to clean out the plastic sections and re-use them.
Timing was something I wanted to do today, but I had to replace my mothers alternator on her '01 OBS. I'll have to wait until Sunday to do the timing.
