Thanks in advance.

I got my last one from Atlantic British ... Actually mine wasn't faulty at all ... And I wasted my money. What makes you think yours is at fault?

Will Tillery can get you a good used one. As far as I can tell, a new one is unobtanium. Buy two used ones from Will and keep one as a spare.

My mechanic has been testing my truck on and off for about a month and is now 100% certain that it is the TPS. (fortunately he is a good family friend and hasn't charged me a thing) I called Atlantic British and they do not have any in stock for a 95, neither does Rovers North. Any problems with a non-stock TPS from Advanced Auto Parts? Do you recall if the 95 TPS is a flat or round plug?

How can I get in touch with Will Tillery?

Thanks.

It takes 5 mins to properly test a TPS. Basically you put a multi meter and measure the voltage while moving the throttle to 100%.

Download this document and have your mechanic do to a fact based diagnosis.

The problem was intermittent, so catching it was the tough thing. He is certain that it is the TPS, but I will pass that on and have him look at this prior to ordering anything.

Thanks again.

What did your problem end up being?

TPS problems would be regular as its a potentiometer and occasionally they wear out in a particular region of the sweep ... You'd see this every single time you moved it past that position if you test it with a meter.

My problem was excess fueling caused by the throttle linkage being incorrectly set. THe TPS value was too high at closed throttle. Fixed in 2 mins but caused a lot of head scratching and money wasted on parts I didn't need.

What's you symptoms?

My problem was that my engine feels like it cuts off and then comes right back on, a surge type feeling. This occurred between 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear. Sometimes in 3rd or 4th, I could push the gas to the floor and get no response. I never got a check engine light. It usually took place after engine was warmed up. This weekend, I had idle problems and it would go down to about 2-300 rpm and run sputtery. It actually shut off twice this weekend, which is the first time that had happened. And as I mentioned, it didn't happen every time, just every now and then

Sounds like leaky air hose to me ... The plenum hose works loose I would check that..

squirt carb cleaner on the hoses when its running and it should drop revs if a leak pulls in the carb cleaner. This would help locate a leaky hose.
