Nope the sensor can be plugged or in a bad position so the air is not traveling through the sensor make sure to have the sensor positioned correctly

A few possibilities:
  1. Defective throttle position sensor (TPS);
  2. Bad idle bypass circuit or idle circuit solenoid;
  3. Cracked intake manifold, throttle body assembly, or bad throttle body gasket (most likely);
  4. Serious vacuum leak somewhere.

2005 neon hard brakes engine races

While your car is running.......pop the hood and find the throttle body. The throttle body is where your air filter tube/hose goes to the engine. Locate the throttle position sensor which should be on the side of the metal throttle body. This should be the item causing this. If you grab the plug that is on the sensor and wiggle it while the car is running then the engine should rev and act up if thats the problem. If not let me know and I can direct you further. Thanks.

Start up at 3000 rpm and wont come back down

if the check engine light is on.. go to auto zone or advanced and get the code.. that will most likely tell you the problem.. sounds like your throttle position sensor is bad.. but its hard to diagnose a 3000 rpm start up with out being there.. but most likely tps is the problem

Either the throttle body is being held open by something or the idle control valve is stuck open. Check where the throttle cable hooks to the throttle body, make sure the cable is not caught on something.

Engine will not go more than 3000 rpm have changed air mas meter and turbo pressure swicth no change vw passat 20tdi 06 plate

pull the intake tube off of the throttle body and look inside if there is a build up of black carbon than you will need to remove and clean MAKE SURE you dont drop any of that **** in to the intake it will mess up your engine.
