    I haven't found a thread or right up on how you clean and adjust the TPS. I would love to know how this is done.:D

    thats great to know. Will TB cleaner or MAF cleaner work?
    What about adjusting it? making sure you put it back right?

    really, I thought I heard that they were.
    Maybe on certain models?

    I just dont want to pull it out, clean it and then put it back in wrong. But if it isnt adjustable then I wont have to worry about that, which would be great!

    OK! bring this baby back from the dead!!!!!

    My 2.7 has a rough idle at 700 RPM's. I sit in traffic and at times it smooths out but the tach never moves. Most of the time when I press the gas to leave the light it seems to die momentarily.
    I have new plugs, filters, cleaned the T/B and inlet but still continues. So this is my next step, TPS!
    Has replacing or cleaning fixed this with anyone?
