Happy Easter! Over the weekend I spliced the new TPS pigtail and installed a new TPS sensor. The pigtail came out nice, readings taken afterwards are spot on, good ground, ohm readings and 5V where they should be. I made sure I put the new TPS in the exact spot as the old one was, or as close as the human eye and a picture can manage. I read a good ohm reading, only between pins 1 & 4 on the sensor, since I don't have a feeler gauge to test between pins 3 & 4 or the precise methods and extra hands needed for testing between pins 2 & 4 with throttle closed and open. Following me, I'm sure someone has done this and became aggravated. At this point, I didn't install the new ECU, being careful not to damage a new unit. This was purchased from epartsland.com for $100. This guy is located in Reading PA and from what I can tell, he carries thousands of ECUs for just about every car you can imagine. They are fully tested and have a warranty. I thought I'd just try and start the car to see what happens. Bad idea! RPMs hit the moon to 5,000 RPMs, so I shut it down immediately. I checked the repair manuals and see that I need to make adjustments using a multimeter and feeler gauges. So, I'm not gonna try this alone, I need help here and probably a second set of hands, besides my three year old son pretending to read manuals . I may ask a local mechanic to pay a house call, asking around for one that knows these old imports. Calling all Subaru Masters and Wizards for advice here please...
