The tps sensor on the dash will come on with a very low variance in pressure, a big problem in the winter time. your best bet is to keep an eye on your pressures or set them a couple pounds higher than your spec.

I have a 95 Chevy k1500 no ecm codes sputers a little at idle just touch the gas its fine go over 1/4 and it sputers let go to in that range it will even out and slowly gain speed having trouble hold 55 on...

Clean the throttle plate(back side) and throttle body(inside), brake clean and a tooth brush. Replace the fuel filter. This will take care of your problem. Beware though, since the filter was clogged it could have weakened the fuel pump. This would be the next thing to die.

Three area that are of concern and who goes out first, cam sensor, cranksensor, ICM. To begine with you are a OBD 1, so you can check codes without a scanner you will just jump the DLC and read the flashing light. The cam sensor is the most popular intermittent failure it is located on the lower right side of the engine,above crank pulley,the code it gives is 41,(four long flashes,one short flash),The next is the crank sensor,This is in front above thhe crank pulley,when this sensor goes out,it stop just anywhere,just like the cam sensor,This wont give a code,the only way you will know if this is not operational is when it stall take one sparkplug wire out leave a a 1/4 air gap between wire and coil crank and inspect for spark.if there is no spark,then you narrowed it down to crank and the ICM.The ICM you need a voltmeter or labscope to troubleshoot it. Now if it was the ICM your battery would be dead long time ago,I am going to say do the most populat failure of them all go with the cam sensor. plus you said its *******.

98 Nissan Maxima Have replaced plugs, mass air flow sensor, cleaned throttle body, adjusted TPS and car still stalls at stop lights, have to put in neutral so it won't die. I can have the vehicle

The EGR Valve is either stopped up with carbon or it is justed worn out.More than likely there's carbon stopping air flow.You can try cleaning it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and a scraper or wire brush.Reset the computer.

91 olds 98, 3.8 v6. changed the tps now it idles very high and will no idle down, any ideas

Some TPS Sensors are adjustable. Usually held on by two screws, loosen the two screws slightly to twist the sensor either counter clockwise or clockwise. You should be using a scanner when installing a new TPS so you can visually see the values. If there is no adjustment on this particular one you may just have a bed new TPS. Make sure after replacing you clear codes/disconnect battery for 10 minutes and reconnect.

I just had a rebuilt transmission put in an iam having the same issues with the transmissiion i replaced the speed sensor next cause thats what came up on the computer but the car is still doing the same...

If this is a new transmission exhibiting the same dysfunction as the old one then likely there is a problem with either the computer or perhaps the TPS. If the TPS is stuck electrically wide open then the transmission would always think it needed to be downshift. If the tps is good then the computer must be bad because the computer tells the transmission when to shift.

Hesitation when I step on the gas

The tps or throttle position sensor could be getting flaky, but without a code I don't know if this is the case.

The map sensor if equipped could be giving false manifold readings.

The mass air flow sensor could be bad if so equipped.

I'd be guessing without more data.

I have 95 ford contour cant get any spark. Changed fuel pump,brain,coil,crank sensor,plug wires,.What else can make this car fire?

TPS sensor
Fuel pump relay
a new fuel filter if the old one is plugged up solid
By chance did you check the computer for any fault codes? If any stored it will tell you what the problem maybe

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.

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.
