Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler
Last month my jeep was giving me problems with a high idle about 50% of the time when in park or neutral and then the check engine light came on and when driving any time I would have to go up a hill or have to increase my rpm's i would get a hesitation as if i was letting off the gas and hitting it real quick. I took it to auto zone they said it was the tps. I took it to a mechanic he said it was loose and he tightened it. Im now getting the same troubles again. Does that sound like the tps or something more?
If it was originally scanned by auto zone and they said Throttle Position Sensor (TPS),i would go back and have it scanned again,this will tell you for certain what it is.Try and get the code number and definition written down.If it were TPS again,the sensor itself would need to be replaced unless the cost was prohibitive,or the wires to and from the sensor and PCM (vehicle computer),ohms checked for continuity first.Eliminating the wires leaves 2 entities in the circuit,the PCM or the TPS.Checking circuits is costly in labor dollars.Good luck.
