    Need help figuring out what is causing my 06 Taco (lifted pro-comp and 35's) to fluctuate RPM's at normal highway speeds sometimes. Bumpy roads, etc. make it worse. Loose connection? Bad part?:confused:

    is your foot moving on the pedal? does the engine actually fluctuate or does the gage just show fluctuation?

    Some work was done when I got it so I am figuring yes since I did not change them. It only occurs when I hit a good amount of bumps. Maybe a loose connection? It does not have a throttle control sensor

    Just a poll to look at while pondering a question on the issue at hand- that's all

    The engine fluctuates rpm's about 2-300. My exhaust is the sure sign it's not just the gauge. I can hear it fluctuate slightly. My big foot stays still - especially now that I have been trying to pinpoint the issue

    Positive. Seems like a connection of some type since it is only occasional

    Alright, so now throttle sensor exterior wise on the 2006 4.0, my foot isn't moving and my poll has SHIT to do with the question at hand. Anyone have any ideas on the possible issue within my post? Loose connection that effects the RPM as I hit major road bumps?

    Slow your roll... It's early in the morning still, and if you wanted a legitimate answer you shouldn't have posted a poll. We don't do well with distractions.

    I agree- my apologies. Figured I would make an interesting request on the poll along with find an answer to my issues from my own truck. LEARNED THAT LESSON- Any assistance would be appreciated
