    Having trouble locating the TPS. The only mechanism I find is in the intake at the bottom of the

    carburetor. It has two wires coming from it and they ohm out at about 52 ohms It is a metal

    oval ring about two inches in depth. I assume it senses gas flow mixture and feeds back to the computer. Could this be what I am looking for.

Welcome to Fixya

Replace the TPS (throttle positioning sensor) its located on the intake area (look where the throttle cable hooks to the engine). You may test the TPS also before replacing it. This happens to my Mitsubushi Galant 91 and replacing the TPS solved the problem.

Thank you for using Fixya!

What is high idle?

When a car is idling it is at rest.The idle setting refers to the engine revolutions or 'revs'.If the setting is increased so that the 'revs' are greater,the engine will not stall at rest.This is 'high idle'!
