You need to set the tps voltsge o that engine between .55 volts and .60 volts. with a voltmeter- check to find one of te three wires on the tps plug and find the wire that has less than 2 volts on it. the other two have 5 volts and ground. loosen the screws on the tps and rotate it until the voltage is arround .56 volts. - good luck

How to install throttle position sensor 94 buick lesabre

locate the throttle body and on the side match your new T.P.S sensor, its usually held on by 2 screws, torx kind, so you might have to buy that screw driver since it is not common. remove and disconnect the old one and install. if its adjustable you need to set it, with a voltmeter. if its not just make sure it engages and slides in fine.

Try replacing the vehicle speed sensor. I don't think it has a speedo relay and the Torque Converter Clutch would not cause this problem.

Drive car for 5 min put in park has high idle like 1200 to 1500

You need to scan the computer and drive it with a scanner on it. Check for codes and watch the Throttle position sensor readings. It sounds like a problem with the tps or Idle speed motor.
