So i think my TPS is bad

Post by 7angofragger » Sun Jun 07, 2009 8:40 pm

Just got the car an it has always drove weird at low rpms.. So I plug up my scanner and check my data.. Off the pedal the tps is reading 15.2, and WOT it's reading 77.4.. Is this normal for srts or should I replace it?

I personally dont know if its normal but SRTs are famous for TPS problems. The problem is usually a broken wire inside the insulation. The design was stupid. Anyways, you can go to www.turboneonstore.com and order the TPS repair kit. Its only $22 or so.

77% and up is considered WOT. 15% is close enough to idle. PCM should've adjusted to it though.

Maybe have a vac leak?
