HELP!!! Replaced the throttle position sensor on my 2002 camry. now the rpms wont go over 3000....any ideas?
You really need to test parts and report the tests before you change them. The readings from the OLD sensor, scanned and voltage tested (prefer both) are invaluable in evaluating a throttle sensor.
If it wont go over 3000 ever, my guess is there is a fault code somewhere or soon will be. If it runs terribly getting to 3000, but idles OK, its likely a fuel problem. Your MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR is on the other side of that rubber tube that attatches to the throttle, if the tube cracked while removing to access the TPS, it could cause that. It must be sealed tight or incorrect airflow is measured and the car only supplies enough gas to match the measured airflow past the MAF sensor.
Get a scanner, check data and codes. If you cannot...then Im afraid the hard answer is you really need to take it to someone who has one. Random guesses are never a good thing, they are at best lucky, at worst expensive and damaging. More often the 2nd than the 1st.
