Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante
Plus I took it auto zone and advance and did a check on computer and the tps problem is popping up...I just don't know how to adjust it properly...thanks
Tps is preset at factory, if a trouble code was retrieved from computer, then replace the TPS, PERIOD............... ANY TYPE OF adjustmt., is done by loosening bolts that hold it in and twisting or turning it one way or another, then retighten bolts, which ever improves the condition, do this with engine running, you'll know which way improves best. I would just replace the tps, and be done.

Testimonial: "Thank you for that last response I did not see that before I realized I had to adjust the tps one way or the other...even driving local I was noticing the rpm up's and down's.... Ihave since adjusted to the right..clockwise and with local driving I don't notice it..it's just when I let off the gas I notice the rpm guage dip then go right back up but nothing like it was before..the real test is when I take it on the highway and get in final gear and put on cruise and get it from there....if it happens at faster speeds I will slightly adjust again and try again..thanks again for the response."

when your vehical throws a code and you replace the defective part, you must clear the code or the ecm will still recognize it as an active code.

the timing marks on your crank and cam crank need to be one on top of the other if you understand what i mean. anyway if this is done correctly, your cam should make two revolutions to one of the crank thus after one full revolution of the crankshat gear your camshaft gear should do 2 revolutions and you timing marks should be next to one another

If you are sure you have gotten all the bolts out then you may need to pry up on the lip of the valve cover with a flat blade screwdriver. Take care not to bend the valve cover too much. They sometimes get stuck pretty good. Good luck.

what do you mean with 'bad valve cover' ?I asume it is leaking oil.it means that the rubber seal is not sealing anymore,it has gone hard.tighten the cover bolts sometimes seals it for a while.to get to the rubber seals the inlet manifold has to be unbolted and moved,a fairly involved procedure but easy to do if you have a manual and standard handtools.The misfiring is likely stray arching of the coils .remove the top plastic cover of the motor andlook when it is very dark [like lightsof in your garage] and look for sparking.If so ,replace sparkplugs or/and leads.[remove inlet manifold also]Tapping lifter,works with oil,try engine oil flush and/or change oil brande.if problem persist replace lifter,lifter undervalve cover
