Throttle Position Sensor Replacement
Hey all, I purchased my car with 99k on it and recently completed the replacement of all belts pulleys, water pump, thermostat, plugs and coolant and cleaned the throtte body. I thought that possibly that would fix an issue I have seen since I bought the car.
When I get in traffic I notice the rpms will just start rising on their own and if I rev the engine they will drop down to 2k. Which made me think it had something to do with the ECU. Also when I let off the gas it can lerch at times and if I just leave it in first and let it roll it when almost rock back and forth.
I was speaking to someone and they mentioned it could be a bad throttle position sensor. Does anyone have any suggestions.
