How to replace the tps on a 1991 tracker? the one i bought has 4 wires the one on the tracker has 6 wires

the 1991 G16a has a pig tail connector, must have 4 wires.
and shares the Injector connector (tricky pin pulls, and all)
that connector you gander is the injector /TPS connector
it has 6 pins but only 4 are for TPS. (yellow /.red are injector)
see page 3 below, for what all this means. last link below.

try to keep in mind, your car has a VIN engine code U (not 6) code 6 , has no pig tail, TPS.
GM uses U code to say, engine is 8valves, TBI, G16a , my guess, (no photos) is your bought TPS is
with tails, and is correct for your 8v engine.

Install, (need feeler gauges to do it)
it's not just thrown on to the car, it must be calibrated.
or the idle switch WILL fail.(and more)
one maker of this TPS is here: (hard to find)
SMP makes one. sMP #TH-147 is for 8V tbi.
do not use 16valve parts on your car.

here is the calibration steps.

the factory page is here

and page 3 here

the last page shows the tricky pin pulls....

you must pull the old pins.' one by one.
then put in then new TPS pins , in the same places of old
matching COLORS.
then do the calibration steps above, using feeler gauges.
same basic steps, from 1989 to 1998.
in 1999 they calibrate it to 0.5vdc, only.
later years, it auto-calibrates.
if the new TPS fails to cure the problem
post the symptoms, and win.

Does not measure distance

Put in new batteries, clean lens, and calibrate. If this does not work, type " Leica Disto A6 Laser Distance Meter user manual " into computer search engine. It will bring up sites for manual.

I have a 2006 suzuki forenza. the engine light keeps coming on with the p2135 code. I have changed the throttle body twice. It intermittently goes on and off now with that same code. What else could be...

2135 verbatim (suzuki has no idea, no surprise, chapter 11? rats off sinking ship, ? LOL)
but try a real ASE service tech, (mech). he knows, and knows well.
"Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch 'A'/'B' Voltage Correlation"
did you read the FSM before fiddling this part.
the TPS requires replacement if bad,
and must be calibrated, if you fail to calibrate it, it will fail.
also the test is fully explained, what the test does and now it is conducted in the FSM, ( I dont have this FSM)
but some tests are not just voltage related only !
that is why the manual is 100% non optional.
case in point:
TP: pin shows low voltage (low throttle angle) and at the same time
the ECU sees (PCM) that RPM is way too high and manifold vacuum low, and or what too high air flow from the MAF.
the ECU sees that and is a grand contraction, and sets a DTC.
not the A/B comments. , im not sure what A/B correlation means.?
is your car with Automatic, and some have effectively 2 TPS inside.
and most agrees. one for engine and one for transmission.
The FSM is the best choice to solve this.
I just looked up STD tranny and A/T and 2135 shows.
"Difference between TP (main) and TP (sub) is higher than specified value. " im not sure what SUB means (suzuki parlance)
Try the calibration,
on my 2005 6v suz, its set to .5v at idle. in the FSM.
if you have it higher you will throw, TPS errors.

also keep in mind, if this DTC is a comparison,
it might not be the TPS at all, in fact can be AIR leaks.
if you have induction air leaks, the comparison fails. see why?
easy the ecu thinks the air leaks are throttle open but the tps shows not.
never assume just because it shows TPS in the DTC page, that it is the TPS.
if cant get a FSM quickly
try alldata dot com, see if they have a better page on this.
the FSM will show exactly main and sub means. im clueless..

Was bird watching this morning, when one of the legs of my bogen tripod collapsed, resulting in my Leica APO-TELEVID 77 breaking in half(literally). I'm the original owner, does Leica's passport warranty...

If you registered the warranty, it may be covered. You'll need to give Leica a call. They will want the Ser. number of the scope when you call.
You can reach them at 1-800-222-0118.
Good luck.
