First of all, instead of quoting a spelling mistake you'd probably be best retyping it out and realize its "Pertinent"...
Are you kidding me? The PERTINIENT info I just added was that I changed the oil, and changed the coolant. Keeping a basic understanding of mechanics, old coolant and shitty as hell OIL have no link to throttle response. As for the rest, I guess a "Cat efficiency" could affect Thrott resp. but my guess is not. What I expect? Everybody else posted things way beyond my expectancy, as in they've actually tried to help me instead of being Mr.Obvious. Seriously, a forum like this with people like you make many wonder what the "F*" the point is if your gonna be arrogant with everyone who doesn't apply to your individual standards of a CORRECT POST.
For the rest of you,
I did observe through my OBD2 reader that my TPS is very SLOW at picking up quick throttle variations, do these things 'get old?' Would a new one have benefits?
I also cleaned the TB today, bought two cans of Seafoam filled the tank with one, and used the second in vacuums, intake, the TB is still quite dirty to my standards its hard to get it cleaned completely. One thing I'm unsure of is the correct way to make sure the IACV valve 'IS' clean, I find the engine has a very low IDLE when cold? Do subarus idle as high as Toyotas? My IS300 idles at like 2500 at cold and gradually comes down, so did my 22RE in my Pickup 91, the Foz idles at like 1500 on startup and goes to like 800-900RPM quite fast even when still cold is this a problem or are they like this?
Thanks again all!
