92 Galant that won't start

Just bought a 92 Galant that had an open TPS code. Thought it would be an easy fix. Put the new one in and it still won't start. The car had been sitting for four months. What else do I need to look for?

92 Miata starts, idles but won't run off idle. Stalls when throttle is pushed.

Start by repairing the things you know need repairing, and do check for proper fuel pressure, condition of spark plugs, wires, spark, etc..
Then proceed with TPS as it is possible the ECU does not know the throttle is open if the TPS is bad.

I drive a 1991 galant with 4g63 engine and the check engine light is on after 5 minutes of starting the car, i already reset the computer bu taking off the negative pole of the battery. the car has no o2...

Your OBD 1 that means put two wire together and it will flash the code by counting the flashes of the ck engine light if your production date is 9/91 you have a recall on the 02 sensor it doesnt matter how long you owned it or if your not the original owner here is the recall number EMR 92 003 but here the deal its only for car in the states like california any other place your out of luck to access the code you will need a voltmeter there it will flash or a analog voltmeter there you will measure the sweep of the needle movement to get the code go under the dash and find the 12 pin connector on the driver side kick panel top right corner is pin 1 and lower left is ground or pin 12 or chasis ground watch the meter movement and count the flashes first flash is long second is short example for code 12 its one long flash is for number 1 two short flash is 2 for code 22 its two long flashes thats 2 and 2 short flash is 2 put it together its 22 there can be a combination of code there your care doesnt really have that much management just EGR, TPS, just the simple needs

My galant shifts really hard only in 2nd gear. Do you know why that maybe?

Check TPS (throttle position sensor) for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, or the EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break. The ECM uses the signal from the TPS to calculate the transmission line pressure for shift firmness through the EPC.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

P1762 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0

????1762 should be a transmission problem!!! Makes no sense at all.
Review: you had a tps code (but the engine ran well?) You changed it and it threw injector codes and ran poorly...You took it out and put the old one back (was code still there? Did it run well?) You put another new one in and now you have a transmission code? and how is it running?
Only commonality here is that the tps runs in tandem with all other sensors Make sure you clear old codes after doing any work and see what comes up after driving through a few cycles/ And get a volt/ohm meter and test the tps to see if in fact it's out of range. It somehow sounds more like a MAP sensor problem..or even a harness problem....but, test before getting anything else.
