Question about Cars & Trucks
Well if the TPS were faulty you should not be able to rev up the engine hot or cold.
And there should be a code for that sensor if it has failed.
I would want to know what the fuel pressure looks like first. You could have a faulty fuel pump or clogged fuel filter.
What happens if you put it in drive as soon as it starts ? Or reverse ? ?

clean out ur throttle body, just follow the hose from the air filter to the throttle body. Need 2 people to do this. Don't remove the hose completely from the throttle body. Just enuff to be able to spray ur intake cleaner into the throttle body. Do this especially if its worse when the motor is hot, as this would confirm the problem.

The 5 volt reference circuit provides a signal voltage to the linear EGR, MAP sensor, and TP sensor. The return line is grounded through the PCM. DTC P1635 detects a short to ground in any of the 3, 5 volt reference circuits or inside the PCM.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
The 5 volt reference is monitored whenever the ignition is ON.
DTC P1635 will set if the 5 volt reference signal is below 3.5 volts or above 5.5 volts. This voltage is monitored internally by the PCM.
If DTCs P0563, P0108, P1106, P0452, P0453, P1122, or P0122 are set, a short to B+ on the 5 volt reference circuit is probable. If the short exists while attempting to diagnose, PDT communications will be lost and driveability conditions will exist.

I spent endless time on this same problem on my 1992 Wagon. I changed out the computer but no help. It turned out to be the top dead center crank sensor that tells the system when the crank passes TDC. It is a small magnet essentially about the siz of a pencil eraser in the flywheel. it was cracked and occasionally would not "sense" and the car would just quit. troubleshooting was a nightmare because the computer diagnostics on the 1992 are less capable than the 1996 model. Anyway that is a relatively inexpensive fix and easy to know if it worked. Let me know how you solve this.
