    Take it all apart again, then put it all back together, make sure you have everything lined up right, make sure everything's tight. Make sure nothing is putting stress on the throttle cable... Good luck!

    More than the wife knows!
    From what i read that when you remove the TPS then put it back on you need to reset the computer because it reads it a 11 deg. when its supposed to be at zero. This would account for the high idle. A garage should be able to do this for you.

    ...too much shit to list.
    I'm guessing you didn't disconnect the battery when you removed the TPS?

    Pull the battery cable.
    Step on your brake for a few seconds.
    Hook back up your battery.

    Drive around the block and see what happens.

    My Tacoma hesitates when I'm taking of on 1st gear. The clutch is so sensitive I got to let out really slow or the truck starts jumping like a chicken with no head. Is there something I could do to fix that or is that normal. Thank u for the advises

    Newly rearranged front end, sick Hurst shifter yo gives it lightning fast shifts, thats it more to come.
    Usually when you pull the TPS off you have to use a multimeter and reset it using the multimeter and watching what it specs out at certain areas. Also what did you clean the TPS with they don't take kindly to carb cleaner or other harsh cleaners.
