Would this be a TPS? Is there a common cause of this condtion?

Any one know if I can take it apart and clean it? Or do I just need to get a new one?

It doesn't appear easy to take apart and remove. Best bet is probably to get a used one from a junkyard. I think they're very expensive new.
There's a link in here to a method to test it.

I'd love to know if you resolve it this way, because I have been totally unable to find or eliminate this problem.

Thanks for the link to the other thred! That info.&PDF file will be VERY handy:clap:

it appears that to change the TPS, the AC compressor (if you have one) needs to be unbolted and moved about 1/4" tops I'm thinking about maybe grinding down on the AC bracket to make the room,
If anyone has any tricks to removing/replacing these things, please let them be known :-)

found a LONG flathead screwdriver, and was able to loosen both after removing the vacuum line to the brake booster.
To remove the TPS, I had to file down on the AC compressor with a 10" file I have.
The wire bundle running through there I had to pull up on top of the compressor to get out of the way. After filing quite a bit on the compressor I was able to slide the TPS off. A little more filing for kicks & giggles and now it goes on/off just fine. Much easier than moving the alt/compressor/fan shroud/etc to get some space to work in.
At the moment I only have the top screw holding it in place until I get a final driving test/adjustment.

You could try blowing some electronic cleaner into it just in case it's dirty and not worn.
